Managing Devices with Linux Device Drivers
✅ indicates CONFIRMED TO RUN
- Date: Wednesday March 17, 2021
- Duration: 1 hour (with live Q&A)
- Time: 11am – 12pm (CEST)
- Presenter: Simon Goda
- Cost: Free!
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.
- 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 has been produced using NXP based iMX SoCs – however the concepts are fully SoC independent.
Simon Goda is a Doulos Senior Member Technical Staff and Linux expert. Simon will present this training webinar, which will consist of a one-hour session, and will be interactive with Q&A participation from attendees.
