Embedded Linux Device Drivers

by Aleksandar Pejić, Andrija Prčić

Purpose-built operating systems based on the Linux kernel are widely used in embedded system applications such as consumer electronics, networking equipment and industrial automation. Hardware for embedded systems is different from hardware for classical PC systems. While the general rules for Linux device drivers programming still apply, the hardware specifics of the embedded systems have to be taken into account.

In this workshop we'll present how to write a Linux device driver for the Raspberry Pi embedded computer and explain the specifics of Linux driver programming for the embedded platform in general.
