Hardware-assisted tools vendor American Arium says its principal firmware engineer, John Overton, will speak on debugging Linux on ARM targets, at the ARM Developer's Conference next week in San Jose. Overton's talk will cover Linux bring-up, as well as debugging Linux, drivers, and bootloaders.

Arium's products for Linux bring-up and debugging include the GT-1000, pictured above. The company said, when it launched the GT-1000 in February, that it was the world's first in-circuit emulator / trace port analyzer with 1GB trace depth, and a half-clock capture rate of 640 MHz.

According to American Arium, Overton's talk will cover the use of ARM DCC registers to provide a virtual serial console, stepping from application into the kernel to debug system calls, and debugging dynamically loaded modules.

VP of Sales and Marketing Jeff Acampora said, “The presentation will provide attendees with a new and innovative approach to embedded Linux development.”

Overton's talk, entitled “Linux Debug on ARM-Based Targets: From Bootloader to Application,” takes place Wednesday, October 5, at 2:00 PM in Room 203 of the Santa Clara Convention Center.
