XtratuM for LEON3: an Open Source Hypervisor for High Integrity Systems ERTSS-2010

This paper addresses the current status of the XtratuM open-source hypervisor for LEON3. In addition an early evaluation of it is also sketched.

Partitioned Embedded Architecture based on Hypervisor: the XtratuM approach EDCC-8 2010

This paper describes the main design criteria used to achieve temporal and spatial partition isolation and an approach to extend the trusted environment from the hardware level to the hypervisor level.

Configuration and scheduling tools for TSP systems based on XtratuM DASIA-2010

This paper discusses the roles and functions when using XtratuM as virtualisation platform and the guest operating systems available to develop the applications.

Xoncrete: a scheduling tool for partitioned real-time systems ERTSS-2010

The paper presents brief survey of the existing scheduling tools. Also, an overview of the Xoncrete system model and main characteristics is outlined.

LithOS: a ARINC-653 guest operating for XtratuM 12th Real-Time Linux Workshop

This paper presents the architecture of LithOS, a new real-time operating system for developing partition applications on top of XtratuM, which provides an Application Interface(API) compliant with the ARINC-653 specification.

XtratuM: An open source hypervisor for TSP embedded systems in aerospace DASIA-2009

In this paper, the main design aspects are discussed and the internal architecture described. An initial evaluation of the most significant metrics is also provided.

XtratuM: a Hypervisor for Safety Critical Embedded Systems 11th Real-Time Linux Workshop

In this paper, the main design aspects are discussed and the internal architecture described. An evaluation of the most significant metrics is also provided. This evaluation permits to affirm that the overhead of a hypervisor is lower than 3% if the slot duration is higher than 1 millisecond.
