- 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 will feature examples using Xilinx® SoCs.
