Anatomy of a Linux Device Driver

In this webinar our partner, Doulos will examine the role and structure of a Linux device driver and how it interacts with existing frameworks and subsystems within the Linux kernel.

Doulos will also:
  • Look at how these frameworks are used in a consistent way, providing a basic structure which is common to most Linux device drivers.
  • Show how the interfaces to user space applications fit into the same basic structure.
  • Discuss some issues about the development process for Linux device drivers such as licensing and mainlining.

This webinar includes examples using an NXP® i.MX 8X based Toradex Colibri iMX8X System on Module.
