DMA - Dynamic machine allocation | Sharing embedded system DUTs

Presentation abstract

The SPIF organization at Intel is developing the Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) – a hardware and firmware technology for remote out-of-band management of personal computers, in order to monitor, maintain, update, upgrade, and repair them. ... AMT is part of the Intel Management Engine, which is built into PCs with Intel vPro technology. For many years, testers working on AMT were given their own CPU board which they used in testing. The board was sitting on their personal lab bench and engineers got used to have their “own” hardware. Since these development boards cost a lot of money, we were looking for ways to share the HW between engineers. That is, move from a “personal” DUT, to shared DUT pool. This paper covers two aspects of this Project: The technical: How sharing is done and what features the system has. The personal (and probably the more interesting…): How we overcame the reluctance of engineers to surender their personal machines and got them used to test a remote DUT they can’t even see.
