Open Source Software in Embedded Systems
Michael Olson

Track: Operating Systems and Applications
Date: Friday, July 26
Time: 10:45am - 11:30am
Location: Sea Breeze II

Open source software is now a common choice for use in embedded systems. These systems are extremely diverse: special-purpose monitors in cars and appliances, set-top entertainment boxes, PDAs, telecommunications hardware, and more.

This talk will examine the common requirements that embedded systems developers have for the software that they use, why they are choosing open source software, and how they are deploying it. We'll discuss not just Berkeley DB, but Linux and the BSDs, Apache, sendmail, and other well-known (and lesser-known!) packages.
