Custom Kernels on Edge Devices in 2020
2020-10-10, 18:00–18:20, Arch Conf

Edge devices are the quintessential real time devices. With the enhancement and stabality of the TICK stack in 2020, let us see if custom kernels on a minimal distribution (Arch Linux) on an edge computing device really shines.


Custom kernels, such as the Linux RT Kernel as well as the Xanmod boast a kernel-level preemption which are supposed to make them better at real time tasks. We have seen a lot of applications of this, such as machines with real time kernels go into space.
Let us see how an edge computing device running Arch Linux on a custom kernel fairs any better in 2020.
