electronica is the world’s leading trade fair, which makes it the most important international meeting place for the industry. This year, the event takes place on November 15-18 at the Trade Fair Center Messe in Munich, Germany. The extensive conference and supporting program will highlight areas including automotive, embedded, wireless, IIoT, connectors/measurement and printed electronics. This is where the industry networks—from young talents and students, startups and skilled workers to SMEs and the global players in electronics.
On November 16 at 2:30-3 pm, Nicolas Guilbaud, Technical Advisor & Principal Architect at LACROIX, will give a presentation titled, “3.8 Software Platform using Zephyr and Container, a path to answer the CPU multi-sourcing issue.”
During the last 2 years as a product, design house and EMS, LACROIX had to answer several component shortages issues especially on processor. Processors are not so easy to multi-source as they are running SW, especially low-level SW which is linked to the chipset. The team has spent a lot of time to port low level SW to new CPU target due to this issue. The solution presented during this session is a SW platform solution targeting MCU and CPU which permits to switch from a CPU to another with a limited effort using Zephyr SW platforms and Containers.
