Managing Devices with Linux Device Drivers

In this webinar, Toradex partner, Doulos, investigates the why and how of managing peripheral devices in an Arm®-based embedded Linux system. Although this is a huge and complex subject area, one can still introduce some of the key concepts and thereby start to appreciate the steps involved in writing a device driver.

Key takeaways:
    • 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

While the webinar has been produced using NXP® based iMX SoCs, the concepts are fully SoC-independent.
