About this project
Device Tree Evolution was proposed as LBI-20. A vote to approve the DTE Lead Project was completed in Aug 2019.
Multiple pieces of work in the DeviceTree space:
System DT definition to describe a complete SoC including all processors views (Cortex-A, Cortex-M, Cortex-R, DSP, …)
Description language change or evolution needed ?
Content definition: source DT, bindings, build and verification tools , ….
How to use by the different software components (Linux, Zephyr, Uboot, TF-A, opTEE, …)
DeviceTree identification at run time
Common DTS storage for all software components using DT
Add external DTS support for all software components
How to generalize DT verification tool delivered in the latest DTC for all software components using DT
Deliverables (not in priority):
System Device Tree tools
Device Tree Technical Report
Device Tree authentication and versioning capabilities
White Paper: Why Device Tree Needs to Evolve
Governance: Linaro Technical Steering Committee (MEMBERS ONLY)
