Mike Looijmans presenting at Embedded World Conference - TOPIC cancels participation due to corona virus

Nuremberg Messe, Nuremberg Germany | 26 Feb 2020 t/m 26 Feb 2020

NOTE: TOPIC cancels participation in the Embedded World 2020 conference in Nuremberg
We have been closely observing the developments following the spread of the corona virus. As Health and well-being of our employees, their families and environment is the most important to us we decided to not take any risks looking to the fast moving situation. Therefor we unfortunately cancelled our participation in the Embedded World Conference 2020. This means that the presentation from our System Expert Mike Looijmans on Febr. 26th is cancelled. 

We thank the Embedded World organization for their understanding and hope to be back at this world leading event in future editions!

In the following days we will share with you his paper  ‘From design to run-time: a practical approach for reconfiguration'. So keep a eye on our social media and this website to download his paper.


On February 26th Mike Looijmans, System Expert at TOPIC, is presenting at the Embedded World Conference 2020.  In his presentation ‘From design to run-time’ he will share his view on a practical approach for reconfiguration. 

From design to run-time: a practical approach for reconfiguration
Devices combining multiple CPUs, GPUs, co-processors and FPGA fabric on a single chip or module have been around for a while. All these components need programming and are reconfigurable which means that their function can be altered in various ways at run-time. This presentation will explain how to do that in practical examples. Free yourself from the limits of the classic boot sequence where the bootloader configures the pins and programs the FPGA and drowns the system configuration in virtual concrete. In small steps, make your system adapt itself, allowing access to a broader range of applications while also reducing the maintenance on board and device support. This talk will focus on the tools and infrastructure available today to actually put this technology to work. We'll see practical applications of how we can use Linux' Devicetree support to make the system adapt itself at runtime and how one could deal with add-on boards.
