Embedded designs have to start up quickly, and those based on Linux and Android must overcome challenges of initializing many peripherals and complex applications. Many designs today rely on a sleep or hibernate solution. What are the risks of these options and is there a better alternative? This session will examine strategies to optimize boot time including a detailed discussion of trade-offs to consider when working to perfect your users’ experience. Bill of materials costs, power budgets, and required development team expertise will be examined.
