Managing Devices with Linux Device Drivers

The webinar has ended - sorry you missed it! To keep up to date with the latest training webinars sign up for Doulos emails

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.

Webinar contents:

  • 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.

Attendance is free of charge.
