[Announce] ACRN Open Source Ver1.2 Release Notes

Wang, Hongbo
 

Hi all,

 

We are very pleased to announce Version 1.2 release of ACRN. You can see the release blog from https://projectacrn.github.io/1.2/release_notes/release_notes_1.2.html and detailed Release Notes in website https://projectacrn.github.io/latest/release_notes.html.

Version 1.2 new features:

  • Support OVMF as virtual boot loader for Service VM to launch Clearlinux, VxWorks or Windows. Secure boot is supported too
  • Support Kata container
  • Windows as a Guest (WaaG): USB host (xHCI) mediator
  • Virtualization supports Always Running Timer (ART)

Besides new features, in this release, there’re several reference documents available, including Guest Windows guidance, Guest Celadon guidance, new defined usage scenarios, etc.

To learn more about ACRN: ACRN is a flexible, lightweight reference hypervisor, built with real-time and safety-criticality in mind, optimized to streamline embedded development through an open source platform. Check out the ACRN project portal (https://projectacrn.org/) for more information.

 

 

 

 

Best regards.

Project ACRN documentation website upgrade

Xie, Nanlin
 

Hi, All,

 

We are very pleased to announce we’ve updated the Project ACRN documentation, organized around your interest with ACRN as an end user, developer, and contributor. 

As shown in the screen shot below, ACRN documentation is now arranged into categories that are more approachable: “Learn about ACRN”, “Try using ACRN”, “Develop using ACRN”, “Contribute to ACRN” and “Developer Reference” documentation. 

This new organization should make it easier for you to find information appropriate for your interests and involvement with the project.  We’ve also begun incorporating additional material documenting example Automotive and Industrial use case scenarios that provide more in depth information and starting points for configuring the ACRN hypervisor for specific application needs. 

Keep an eye on our documentation website: https://projectacrn.github.io as we continue to make it better for ACRN community.

 

 

Best Wishes!

Nanlin

ACRN Project TCM - 7th Aug 2019
Location
Agenda
  1. ACRN project update 
 
  1. “Restricting Dynamic Resources from functional safety perspective” by Mao, Junjie
Download foil from ACRN Presentation->ACRN_TCM->WW32’19
 
Q1: Are these dynamic resources, variables in ISO 26262 are required? 
A1: Depending on the ASIL levels, ASIL-D would suggest “highly recommended” for example.
 
Q2: Do we have auto tool to scan out any dynamic resource/variables?
A2: For dynamic resources, no such tool but it’s more about design and review stuff.
 
Q3: What is online checking /testing?
        A3: For example, malloc() checking.
 
        Q4: is thermal throttling considered as dynamic resource?
        A4: Power control of physical platform is not in ACRN’s current design yet.

  1. All: Community open discussion.

Wang, Hongbo
 

Date: 8/7
Topic: On Dynamic Resource Allocation
Description: It is highly recommended in the functional safety standards that dynamic resource allocation and dynamic objects are avoided, but interpretation of this clause may vary. This session will summarize the concepts in the standards, the rationale of avoiding them in safety-critical applications and possible alternatives, mostly based on the clauses in the standards as well as experiences in safety-critical projects in the past.

ACRN Project Technical Community Meeting Minutes - 7/31/2019

Wang, Hongbo
 

 
ACRN Project TCM - 31th July 2019
Location
Agenda
  1. ACRN project update 
 
  1. “Design of GOP Driver for GVT-g” by HE, Min
Download foil from ACRN Presentation->ACRN_TCM->WW31’19
 
Q1: What’s the life cycle of GOP from power on to Windows desktop showing up?
A1: VM setup -> OVMF loading -> OVMF loads GOP -> OVMF displays on GOP -> OVMF boots Windows -> Windows display through GOP framebuffer -> Windows load GFX driver -> Windows desktop show up.
 
Q2: What’s the relationship between VideoBIOS and GOP?
A2: Video BIOS is for legacy BIOS and GOP is for UEFI BIOS.
 
Q3: What’s the overall boot flow sequence of SOS, GVT-g, OVMF, UOS?
A3: SOS booting -> SOS loading GVT-g -> VM setup by hypervisor -> vGPU created by GVT-g -> OVMF loaded in VM -> OVMF loads UOS bootloader -> UOS booting.
 
Q4: Can current GOP driver design support pass-throughed GPU device besides GVT-g?
A4: No. We may support it in the future if there’s such requirement.
 
Q5: What’s development environment of GOP driver? In OVMF?
A5: GOP driver is inside of OVMF (actually in EDK2). And it supports development in both Windows and Linux environment.
 
Q6: Can GOP driver support other Guest OS beyond Windows?
A6: Yes. GOP driver is OS independent.
 
Q7: Can GOP driver feature co-exist with KVM’s QEMU’s video driver? Any conflict between GOP’s local display and VNC remote display after GOP driver changes upstreamed?
A7: The driver binary can exist in the OVMF of KVM qemu. But they cannot work at the same time. KVM qemu must set up to use either GVT-g’s vGPU or, the Qemu’s emulated video.

Re: Dropping Service OS Image from CL

Xie, Nanlin
 

Thanks Miguel for heads up. From ACRN Getting Started Guide, we didn't use "clear-30310-service-os.img.xz" image. It has no impact for ACRN.

DevOps is planning to no longer produce the UEFI-based Service OS image in a week's time by next Thursday 7/18. We are not seeing a good interest in this image anymore. The content will still be provided in Clear and may continue to be installed via the "service-os" bundle with swupd after the image is no longer produced.

DevOps is planning to no longer produce the UEFI-based Service OS image in a week's time by next Thursday 7/18. We are not seeing a good interest in this image anymore. The content will still be provided in Clear and may continue to be installed via the "service-os" bundle with swupd after the image is no longer produced.

ACRN Project Technical Community Meeting (2018/11-2019-07): @ Weekly Wednesday 11AM (China-Shanghai), Tuesday 7PM (US-West Coast), Wednesday 3AM (Europe-London)

Wang, Hongbo
 

Topic of WW28.3’19 (7/10 PRC time): ACRN 2.0 New Architecture Brief and Review
Description: ACRN 2.0 will support multiple usages, such as SDC, Industry, which brings new architecture and feature updates. In this talk, we’ll review those changes.
P.S. ACRN 2.0 has been discussed in ACRN Meetup on 6/12, but we’d like to repeat this discussion to get more inputs.

Re: Hardware Support (serial port for debugging)

Wang, Hongbo
 

  1. About hardware platform with serial port: We don’t try every off-the-shelf hardware for Apollo Lake and Kabylake CPU. UP2 and NUC7i7DN are just ones we use in our lab, which have serial port jumpers from motherboard. I believe there’re other machines which have RS232 jumper. For example, Dell desktop machine, Internal evaluation boards from Intel, etc.
  2. Without serial port, it’s very difficult to debug ACRN boot phase code. After ACRN successfully boot, you can use “printf” to output debug messages to screen without serial port.

 

There may be other hardware workaround to support serial port. For specific NUC models, it’s possible to solder down 2 jumpers on motherboard by extending RX/TX singles from M.2 adapter’s pins. But finding a machine with vanilla serial port is always first option.

 

 

Best regards.

Hi, all. 

I was wondering that 'UP2' and NUC7i7DN' are only devices supporting serial port to debug ACRN hypervisor?
How can you develop ACRN on the devices without serial port? (like 'NUC7i7BNH')

Thanks.
