Tutorial: Debugging Custom Hardware with Linux – Tools to Make Your Hardware Engineers Love You - Chris Martin, Altera

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This will be an interactive, fun tutorial that will model a hardware engineer’s worst day. Audience members will take turns mangling the hardware platform in various ways. My job as speaker will be to find what went wrong, introducing useful tools and techniques along the way. The tools will range from the simple ones like devmem for peeking and poking and tcpdump for network monitoring, to complex ready-made tools such as gdb, LTTng or eclipse for tracing, to custom scripts that I’ve found useful along the path of my career in verification and customer support. I’ll present and demonstrate live a “baby stepping pyramid” of hardware debug sure to remove intimidation from even the softest of software engineers.
