Managing Devices with Linux Device Drivers

FREE 1 hour webinar! Friday August 23, 2019 Register now below

Webinar Overview:

In this webinar we investigate the why and how of managing peripheral devices in an Arm-based embedded Linux system. Although this is a huge and complex subject area, we can still introduce some of the key concepts and start to appreciate the steps involved in writing a device driver.

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
  • 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 has been produced using iMX SoCs from NXP - however the concepts are fully SoC independent.

Simon GodaDoulos Senior Member Technical Staff and Linux expert Simon Goda will present this training webinar, which will consist of a one-hour session, and will be interactive with Q&A participation from attendees.
