Prof. Hermann Haertig from Technical University Dresden visiting DSLab,SISE

Prof. Hermann Haertig brings us a splendid lecture On March 6th, Prof. Hermann Haertig, the leader of the Institute of System Architecture for operating systems research group in Dresden University of Technology in Germany, gived us a splendid lecture named The Real-Time System and Trusted Computing based on L4/Fiasco in 406 in the Information Floor. The Information Science and Engineering Institute’s leader Chen Xiaoyun and Sun Zhaohui attended the lecture. The 2006th graduates in the department of Computer science and the members in the dslab listened to this lecture. In the three hours’ lecture, Haertig told us some basic knowledge about l4 and microkernel, and launched trusted computing on extensive discussions. In all the process, Haertig talked with the listeners and the atmosphere was very warm.

“Linux in Safety Critical Systems” Seminar 2008, hosted by Engineering Research Center of Open-Source Software and Real-Time Operating System, Ministry of Education, China, at Lanzhou in Jan. 13-19, 2008

Linux in Safety Critical Systems Seminar 2008

 

Engineering Research Center of Open-Source Software and Real-Time Operating System,

Ministry of Education, China

 

Room 530, Information Building, SISE, Lanzhou University, Jan. 13-19, 2008

 

 

 

 

 

Seminar Scope:

 

Linux usage for safety-related systems in the context of IEC 61508 and derived standards for process industry (IEC 61511), machine industry (IEC 62051) and rail (EN50128/50129). In This seminar we will cover IEC 61508 with respect to COTS components, develop strategies for inclusion of COTS components and outline possibilities of justification of such components in a standard compliant manner.

 

Seminar Schedule:

 

phase1
  Introduction to Functional Safety
  Overview of IEC 61508
  Relation of IEC 61508 and derived application sector standards - focus on COTS
  Safety Strategy options for Linux in 61508 Context

phase2
  Available Linux/FLOSS technologies
  Discussion of the safety concept "total diversity"
  Outlook "Evolution of 61508 and derived standards"

 

Speaker:

 

Nicholas Mc Guire, Professor of Lanzhou University, lectures on UNIX clusters, embedded and realtime Linux, Open-Source Project Management and UNIX programming. He became involved in Linux in early 1995 (Kernel 0.99.12) while working at the Tech. Univ. Vienna Austria and programming DSP’s (TMS 320C4X) for Magnetic Bearing systems. He continued Linux work at the Inst. for Computational Material Science of The Vienna University from 1997-2001, primarily working on High-performance clusters there (Alpha-LX/DP-264/UP-2000/K7 clusters). These projects brought the world of MPI and PVM as well as the very fascinating MOSIX project into his work-area and he has since then a continued interest which was extended into distributed real-time systems lately. He began to work on MiniRTL in 1998 because of lack of work at the University and too many old PC’s standing around that nobody wanted to use. He is currently active as a consultant for industries deploying free software and open source, notably embedded Linux/RTLinux based Projects for Machine-tool companies and in the field of safety critical systems and as the maintainer of RTLinux/GPL an active community member.

The Training of IBM Power Architecture Design Challenge for Students held in Lanzhou University

The Training of IBM Power Architecture Design Challenge for Students was held on July 16th and 17th in Lanzhou University. During the training, Liu Qianru Enginneer who is the chip design engineer comes from Global Engineer Solution department (IBM China) and Mr. Siro Arthur working in DSLab as the reseach asistant introduce and demostrate the SoC design, PowerPC and coreconnect bus architecture and PowerPC development respectively. The double-language method is adopted in the training. Students can learn english when they study knowledge on PowerPC. Students don’t only learn much new knowledge on PowerPC, but also can talk with the IBM H/W engineer face to face during the train. And many students hope this kind of train be held frequently. The IBM Power training will persist 17 days in eight different universities in China and the Lanzhou Univsity is the first station. The training is one part of 2007 Summer School organized by DSLab too.
