      Containerization as a means of extending the lifetime of HDL development tools 25m

      This presentation will discuss the challenges posed by the fact that most HDL development tools only support a few fixed, selected version of OSes, effectively tying their end-of-life with theirs.
      Porting the design to newer versions of the tool may not always be the best option as it may require significant time and resources, as well as extensive testing, especially in reliability-critical scenarios.
      Staying on outdated distributions is not advisable either, as it may leave the system vulnerable to security threats, and prevent access to newer features and software that may be useful for development.
      To address this challenge, the presentation proposes containerization using distrobox, which allows any HDL tool to run inside an officially supported distribution and enables easy integration onto the developer's host OS, transparently decoupling the host's OS from the tool's one.
      The presentation will provide an overview on how to use distrobox to containerize any software, with an emphasis on HDL tools, making this presentation relevant to anyone working with HDL development tools wishing to use their tools for longer or on a different OS, and particularly to those impacted by the end of life of CC7.

      X2O ATCA IPMC and control solution: an update 25m

      The presentation will discuss the latest updates of X2O platform for the upcoming Phase-2 upgrade. X2O platform is a modular system in ATCA standard that includes hardware, firmware and software solutions.
      Main updates of X2O platform include:
      Migration to the KRIA SoM (Ultrascale+ family) as a system controller and IPMC host within the power module (rev.3).
      Adaptations for VU13P FPGA module and 30-cage QSFP optical module.
      New features in firmware and software such as 10G Ethernet, fast custom JTAG-DMA core, custom IPMC slaves.
      New IPMC version that is running as an application on SoM KRIA within CentOS 8.
      Initial version of X2O board plugin as a control software solution based on SWATCH framework.
      The X2O platform will be used for L1 Trigger subsystems: EMTF, OMTF, GEM, GMT and also in the DAQ upgrade of the CSC subsystem.
