Content Summary:

  • How devices are represented in the device-tree description
  • The basic framework used for a Linux kernel device driver
  • Fundamentals of device driver programming, including interrupt handling and memory allocation
  • How devices can be managed from user-space and a comparison with kernel-based management
  • Some of the tools and techniques available for debugging device drivers.

The webinar will feature examples using Xilinx® SoCs.
