BeagleV is the first affordable RISC-V development board capable of running Linux distributions. RISC-V is a new computer architecture with an open instruction set which creates multiple new opportunities.
In this talk we will explore a beta version of BeagleV and learn how to get started with it. Using the Yocto Project, OpenEmbedded and appropriate board support package (BSP) we will build a simple Linux distribution from scratch and boot it on the device. The presentation will provide exact steps and quick introduction to Yocto and OpenEmbedded.
The talk is appropriate for anyone, including beginners. No previous experience is required. Hopefully, it will encourage more developers and engineers to support and build open source hardware devices and CPU based on an open instruction.
