Linux is becoming a popular operating system for embedded systems like media players, set-top boxes and other consumer electronics. Unlike desktop and server versions of Linux, embedded versions of Linux are designed for devices with limited resources and using different processor architectures.
The objective of this Embedded Linux Device Driver course is to equip participants with sufficient knowledge and confidence to develop device driver for the board support package of the embedded platform. This course provides the participants with an understanding of different classes of devices and how the device driver is written and integrated into the Linux kernel. Hands-on practice will be given to the participants in a step by step manner - to implement Linux device driver on an embedded platform.
Course Pre-requisite: Linux for Embedded Systems course or equivalent experience in setting up the Linux kernel for embedded systems. br>Fee with NEW SkillsFuture Series subsidy: S$346.68 (inclusive of GST). *conditions apply
To be eligible for SF Series subsidy, participants:
- must be Singaporeans or Permanent Residents of Singapore
*Participants who do not fulfill the above criteria are not eligible for SF Series funding, and are required to pay the course fee in full.
*Union members may also apply for UTAP to offset the course fee.
This course is recommended for embedded system engineers who wish to learn how to implement Linux device driver on an embedded Linux platform.
