The late physicists John Wheeler and Albert Einstein would have been overjoyed to see the recent confirmations of their hypothesis: gravity waves and black holes are out there, real and we can now detect them. Currently as of March 2018 6 major events have been detected, some of which have been simultaneously confirmed by independent telescope observation. The NSF funded Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) is a system that uses a laser interferometers to measure the strong gravity waves that are emitted when multiple black holes and other dense star types merge together. These incredibly strong waves ripple across the universe and are detected by multiple 4km long LIGO systems. LIGO went online with usable detection capabilities in Sept of 2015 and miraculously within 2 weeks observed its first gravitational wave detection. The raw data for these detectors are publicly available and the LIGO team has released a Jupyter notebook that shows the signal processing involved and narrows the search to the detection intervals. In addition they offer to the public a set of Python libraries than can be used to search across any time interval. This presentation will give a brief intro of the LIGO search algorithms and show how to get started to search for black holes with your own Ultra96 board or any other system capable of running Jupyter notebooks. There will be brief mention of how the Ultra96 FPGA could be used to accelerate the search algorithm’s signal processing.

LVC20-316 RunX: deploy real-time OSes as containers at the edgeTuesday, August 4, 2020
Containers are incredibly convenient to package applications and deploy them quickly across the data center.New
This talk will introduce RunX, a new project under LF Edge that aims at bringing containers to the edge with extra benefits. At the core, RunX is an OCI-compatible containers runtime to run software packaged as containers as Xen micro-VMs. RunX allows traditional containers to be executed with minimal overhead as virtual machines, providing additional isolation and real-time support.
It also introduces new types of containers designed with edge and embedded deployments in mind. RunX enables RTOSes, and baremetal apps to be packaged as containers, delivered to the target using the powerful containers infrastructure, and deployed at runtime as Xen micro-VMs. Physical resources can be dynamically assigned to them, such as accelerators and FPGA blocks.
This presentation will go through the architecture of RunX and the new deployment scenarios it enables. It will provide an overview of the integration with Yocto Project via the meta-virtualization layer and describe how to build a complete system with Xen and RunX.
The presentation will come with a live demo on embedded hardware.
LVC20-314 System Device Tree update: Bus Firewalls and LopperTuesday, August 4, 2020
System Device Tree is an ongoing effort to expand the scope of Device Tree to describe and configure modern heterogeneous SoCs, including multiple CPUs clusters, their views of the system, and the software running on them. System Device Tree comes with Lopper, an Open Source Python tool to read a System Device Tree and produce one traditional Device Tree for each software execution domain.New
The System Device Tree specification progressed significantly in the last year. This presentation will provide an update on the latest developments, such as the new bindings for the description and configuration of bus firewalls. The talk will deep-dive into Lopper, its flexible plugins architecture, and explain how to use it with System Device Tree today. If time allows, some common System Device Tree and Lopper use cases will be demonstrated.
LVC20-310 Testing IoT Devices: Design and Progress from LITE TeamTuesday, August 4, 2020
The LITE team will discuss the overall design and intent of an MCU CI/Testing infrastructure and our progress towards this goal. Using LAVA with Docker, we are able to test multiple vendor boards across multiple software projects such as MCUboot, TF-M and Zephyr.New
