Fast boot time is critical for certain machine control functions, in some cases it is used by the operator to securely start the machine itself, or for sensitive machines it is required to actively monitor and control machine systems to ensure safe operation and vehicle health.
In cases like these, delays caused due to a lengthy boot sequence can have costly consequences either in time loss, maintenance costs or health risks.
For our new iMX8-based displays with Linux we have been working to trim down the boot time. The modern architecture used in the device allows for a variety of approaches in reducing boot time depending on user requirements.
For our new iMX8-based displays with Linux we have created a package with an optimised boot time. The modern architecture used in the device allows for a variety of approaches in reducing boot time depending on user requirements. Booting from cold to the Linux OS with an application running can be reduced to 3 seconds. By utilising the built-in co-processor to manage graphics and CAN communication a boot time of less than a second is achieved.
By utilising suspend mode, rather than full system shutdown, it is possible to ensure even faster boot times to further reduce any delays and ensure full operation as quickly as possible.
