Embedded Linux System Overview Training by TONEX

Embedded Linux System Overview training course gives you a solid understanding of Linux kernel and libraries and utilities for embedded applications. Learn about tools and techniques to develop an embedded Linux device.  The use of Linux in embedded products has increased in recent years, with Linux now being used in many consumer electronic devices, medical devices, wearable gadgets and military applications.

Upon completion of the course the attendees will have a good understanding of:

  • Explore the Linux kernel architecture
  • Increase your understanding of real-time and embedded systems
  • Gain essential knowledge of Linux embedded systems design and programming
  • Gain practical knowledge of how to adapt the kernel to a custom embedded application
  • Understand the concepts of task scheduling and synchronization, resource management, inter-task communications, and interrupt handlers.
  • Learn how to populate libraries and application user-spaces for embedded systems
  • Learn how to program a Linux embedded device
  • Learn about HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer)
  • Gain practical knowledge of how to write MIPI-based embedded Linux device drivers for camera (CSI-2) and display (DSI)
