Making NEON shine simply requires following a few tips. In this presentation, I'll first introduce NEON and do a comparison between ARMv8 and ARMv7 NEON before we explore the key factors to a successful use of NEON. I'll present work I've done on the Skia graphics library (used in Chromium, Firefox, Android) and share a number of tips.
Android provides CTS - Compatibility Test Suite, written in java and run to verify the Android system. However Android has limited low-level tests, typically needed to port, benchmark and optimize components, in isolation. There is a need to create, enhance, share and deploy such user-space tests.
In this discussion, Ashok will cover recent work on multimedia codec tests for AArch64 done by ARM and Linaro, provide a quick overview on current Android user space tests, being run as part of Linaro's monthly release. This will be followed by an open discussio
ADF is Android's Atomic Display Framework, which has been relatively recently developed and optionally replaces KMS and the framebuffer for forthcoming Android devices based on 3.10. It provides integration between Android's syncpoints to provide atomic display updates. This functionality is related to the atomic page flipping that has been proposed for KMS, but which hasn't yet been merged. This talk will cover a brief technical overview, and provide space for discussion as to how we should approach trying to unify these two implementations upstream, to avoid having totally forked display systems between Android and other Linux environments.
