Todayâ€'s small form factor devices are facing challenges on thermal dissipation aspect. In extreme use cases which stress the system, despite a good hardware design, ergonomic thermal limits are breached. Since in such devices active cooling (e.g., fan) is not feasible, we must look for passive thermal solution. The thermal solution needs to work beyond just CPU frequency throttling owing to the growing usecases which stress components like GPU, Modem etc. We are enhancing the existing Linux thermal framework, to achieve these. Apart from these aspects this talk will also cover the concept of "zones as virtual sensors"€™, differentiating trip points and thresholds, thermal governors, the need and modality to customize platform data etc. The target audience would be OEMs/developers who are trying to address thermal issues.
