The presentation will talk about debugging various problems a kernel developer can face when working with power management. These include hardware related issues (IC / HW layout bugs, bad documentation) and software related (kernel bugs, driver problems, adding new kernel features, bad userspace behavior.) Along with presenting some of these problems, I will discuss about ways to debug these... power management typically requires specific tools to be used. I will base the discussion on my first hand experience from working with Linux PM. Target audience is (kernel) software developers interested in power management.
Texas Instruments / LDC / PM
I am a Master of Science having approximately 15 years of embedded software experience, on various platforms. With Linux I have been working since 2005, and have been working with Linux Power Management from the beginning of 2008. I started the PM work within Nokia using OMAP3, but left the company in 2011 and joined Texas Instruments where I work nowadays with OMAP3/4/5 platforms. I don't have that much speaking experience as that has not typically been needed in my work.
