Developing Linux Device Drivers
Implementing Linux on custom hardware will, in most cases, require you to write device drivers. This course demonstrates how to write code that runs within the Linux kernel to handle hardware events and present a standard interface to applications.
This course presents a detailed view of Linux device drivers with an emphasis on topics specific to embedded environments: cross compilation; remote debugging and real-time. It uses a combination of theory and practice, using a development board with an ARM core and a recent version of Linux 3.2.
No prior knowledge of Linux device drivers is assumed, making it ideal for engineers porting from code from an RTOS to Linux.
