Using Linux for the Internet of Things (e2i)(SFC) 

Introduction

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. 

Objectives

The objective of the Embedded Linux course is to equip participants with sufficient knowledge and confidence to carry out an embedded Linux project. The course provides the participants with an understanding of how to configure and install the Linux kernel for use in embedded systems. Hands-on practice will be given to the participants in a step by step manner to implement Linux on an embedded platform. 

Outline

Day 1
Introduction to Linux open source kernel, understanding the embedded systems platform requirements for Linux, the Linux boot process, Linux utilities for embedded applications, kernel configuration and compilation

Day 2
Debugging techniques for embedded Linux, Adding applications, setting up and configuring network for networked Linux applications, device driver model for embedded Linux

Day 3
Setting up Linux for MMU-less systems, porting Linux across processors, GUI for linux applications


** Hands-on exercises will be conducted during the class. Each participant will be given an embedded Linux hardware board to work on, and will be able to bring it home after the course. **
