    Nowadays, mobile devices engage in meeting the requirement of a set of challenging constraints. Besides typical power, reliability and cost constraints, modern devices are built upon large amount of third party applications and at the same time provide a closed and secure environment for system functionality.  Virtualization technology is a promising solution to safely merge conflicting subsystems on a single processor which leads to huge cost benefits and higher flexibility.

    This session will talk about the evaluation of introducing a specialized hypervisor for embedded real-time systems such as mobile phones, and ARM architecture is selected as the major virtualization evaluation platform.  In addition to software approaches to virtualize typical hardware, this session will discuss about the state-of-the-art hardware facilities such as ARM Cortex-A15.
