Boot/reboot time of embedded system is very critical for some applications. As you know, default boot of DaVinci Demo EVM and IPNC (IP Network Camera) is about 15-20 seconds. We designed fast boot for functional DaVinci network camera. Gross reboot time takes 3.2 seconds. (measured on network) Firmware boot time is 2.5 seconds. (measured on serial console) Please see explanations and logs below.
Summary of boot process:Please see serial boot log with timestamps for details.

Network dump to measure gross reboot time (3.24 sec)
Encoded data is streamed over TCP and UDP. We will capture data stream and reset board to measure reboot/recovery time. First column is delta time between current and previous line on each dump line. Gap in UDP data stream lasts 3.24 seconds.
# tcpdump -ttt -n udp port 12345

You said that source code will be available as product. We had bought two IPNC camera (One DM365 and one DM368) from APPRO.
If we want to get the source code, must we contact with APPRO?
Thanks a lot!
In reply to gomo:
IPNC menas Internet Protocol Network Camera. It is not related to Appro implementation.Contact me about the source.
In reply to Constantine:
Thanks you for reply!
How can I contact you about the source? E-mail? or other way?
BTW, is it free and open source?
IPNC, is it free and open source?It free or open source how can I get the source or url? My email is email@example.com.
Which CE Linux Patch from http://tree.celinuxforum.org/CelfPubWiki/PatchArchive to your Linux Kernel ?
Just do it.
In reply to Samyam He:
It is based on linux-2.6.32 from dvsdk_3_10_00_12
Gross boot time improved in 1 sec from 4.25 to 3.24
can you give me the source code?my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
My email is email@example.com
We bought a dm368ipnc , Could you give me the source code ,or tell me how to get the source code . My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
In reply to shuang yuan:
We also bought a DM368 IPNC, Could you give me the source code, or tell me how to get the source code.
