Since April 2016, and thanks to the work of +Quentin Schulz, +Free Electrons has its own lab to do automated testing of the Linux kernel on numerous ARM hardware platforms, and to contribute to the KernelCI.org effort.

We have just published at http://free-electrons.com/blog/hardware-infrastructure-free-electrons-lab/ a blog post that details the hardware architecture of our lab: the components we use at the hardware level and how our lab is organized.

This blog post is the first in a series, with other blog posts talking about the software architecture.

As stated in a previous blog post, we officially launched our lab on 2016, April 25th and it is contributing to KernelCI since then. In a series of blog post, we'd like to present in details how our lab is working, starting with this first blog post that details the hardware infrastructure of ...

+Trevor Woerner as +Alexandre Belloni said, not all our boards use a barrel, a number of them are powered through micro-USB. We simply bought some micro-USB cables and connect them to 5V and that's it. The trickier situation is when the same USB port is used for both providing power to the board and giving access to the serial port. In that case, we had to cut the USB cable to separate the power from the data lines. We could probably add another blog post detailing the exact wiring.

Free Electrons embedded Linux and kernel courses in FRENCH are back in Toulouse

For some time, because of stronger demand for on-site sessions, in addition to being very busy with projects, we couldn't propose "public" training sessions in French any more. We only kept the sessions in English in Avignon, France.

Such sessions, open to individual registration, are now back in 2017 in Toulouse, France.

All details on http://free-electrons.com/training/sessions/

Note the talk from Maxime Ripard, my colleague at Free Electrons, on the C.H.I.P. SBC from NextThing Co (https://getchip.com/).

Hoping to see you there!

+Maxime Ripard recently contributed the support for Device Tree overlays, to both the U-Boot project and the upstream libfdt. This support allows to apply Device Tree overlays at the bootloader level directly.

The work has been merged in U-Boot and is part of the latest 2016.09 release. It has also been merged in libfdt upstream 10 days ago.

Read more about this work in our blog post at http://free-electrons.com/blog/dt-overlay-uboot-libfdt/
