Unix Device Driver online training

Unix Device Driver


Implementing Linux on custom hardware will, in most cases, require you to write device drivers. This course demonstrates how to write code that runs within the Linux kernel to handle hardware events and present a standard interface to applications.This course presents a detailed view of Linux device drivers with an emphasis on topics specific to embedded environments: cross compilation; remote debugging and real-time.


  • Good 'C' programming skills
  • General knowledge of an RTOS or embedded operating systems
  • Knowledge of Linux or Unix is useful, but not essential


  • It is a 12 days program and extends up to 2hrs each.
  • The format is 40% theory, 60% Hands-on.

  • It is a 3 days program and extends up to 8hrs each.
  • The format is 40% theory, 60% Hands-on.
    Private Classroom arranged on request and minimum attendies for batch is 4.
