Course Description

The ever-growing demand for connectivity and multimedia applications is resulting in embedded Linux systems driving increasingly complex devices. Developing custom device drivers for the Linux kernel can be a complex and difficult task, with an array of implementation choices available.
This course aims to reduce development time by demonstrating how the range of helper functions and mechanisms provided by the kernel can make custom device driver creation easier. Attendees should come away from the course with a clear understanding of how to go about designing their device driver and what kernel mechanisms they can make use of.
All the main kernel interfaces and structural elements are covered in the course, allowing attendees to gain a sound understanding of the overall framework. This ensures that this training will continue to be useful and valid for future device driver projects.
