MontaVista, Ultimate Solutions Demonstrate Embedded Linux Kernel Debugging

MontaVista(R) Software, Inc., the leading provider of Linux(R) for intelligent devices and communications infrastructure, and Ultimate Solutions, Inc., a leading supplier of JTAG probes, will present a free educational webinar showcasing embedded Linux development and debugging. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, August 21 at 10:30 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time (1:30 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time).

Webinar attendees will see a live demonstration of the MontaVista DevRocket(TM) integrated development environment and USI’s LinuxScope-JTD(TM) JTAG target debugger. The presentation will show how these Eclipse(TM)-based tools can speed and simplify the embedded development lifecycle, from hardware bring-up to OS/driver loads to application debugging.

As technology advancements and competitive pressures increase, embedded Linux systems engineers are called upon to deliver ever more complex device software with shorter release cycles. Additionally, engineers face problems caused by inconsistent development environments with insufficient user documentation, leading to difficulties in programming for their target devices. To be successful, development teams need a reliable platform and tools that provide stable environments to debug complex applications.

This technically-oriented webinar is designed to provide new insights for developers responsible for kernel and driver synchronization with hardware updates, kernel configuration, creation of system images for boards, and kernel/application integration.

A live question-and-answer session will give audience members the opportunity to interact with the presenters and guide the discussion to their areas of interest.
