Xenbedded: Xen-based client virtualization for phones and tablets - Chris Patterson & Kyle Temkin, AIS, Inc.

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

This talk presents a new client virtualization platform that allows Xen to be used on mobile phones and tablets. These embedded devices require special consideration, particularly in the context of client virtualization. We will outline the technical challenges of virtualizing common tablet devices, including the touchscreen, audio, webcam, accelerometer, Wi-Fi, cellular, and display devices. TrustZone implications will also be discussed.

We will present the current project status and what it took (or will take) to get NVIDIA's Jetson TX1 development board and Google's Pixel C tablet running multiple Android instances. We will provide an overview of the platform’s build toolchain and source trees. Finally, we will open up discussions on the future of the platform and the challenges associated with improving Xen adoption on mobile ARM devices.
