Learn how to develop/enhance power efficient device drivers for Linux systems.

Course Description

Linux Foundation Trainer Jan-Simon Möller talks about our optimizing device drivers course.

Optimizing Linux Device Drivers for Power Efficiency is designed to show experienced programmers how to develop/enhance power efficient device drivers for Linux systems.

Upon mastering this material, you will be familiar with the power management infrastructure and code used under Linux, and know the appropriate APIs.

Students are expected to provide their own computers for the class.

Course Materials

Besides all necessary materials to do the lab exercises (embedded board, needed cabling, card readers etc.) you will receive a printed copy of the very detailed course manual.

For more details view the Course Outline.

Audience

LInux developers interested in learning how to write Linux device drivers with robust power management features. This course will ease your path and perhaps shorten the amount of time it takes to create drivers encapsulating efficient and modern power management..

Prerequisites

You should:
  • Be proficient in the C programming language.
  • Be familiar with the basic Linux kernel development environment and have some knowledge of kernel internals.
  • Have an understanding of Linux device drivers and experience in developing them, equivalent to have already taken LFD331, Developing Linux Device Drivers.
  • Know the basics of compiling and linking programs, constructing Makefiles, etc.; i.e. be comfortable doing application developing in a Linux or UNIX environment.
  • Experience with any major Linux distribution is helpful but not strictly required.
