Linux Device Drivers Development

Key FeaturesLearn to develop customized Linux device driversLearn the core concepts of device drivers such as memory management, kernel caching, advanced IRQ management, and so on.Practical experience on the embedded side of LinuxBook DescriptionLinux kernel is a complex, portable, modular and widely used piece of software, running on around 80% of servers and embedded systems in more than half of devices throughout the World. Device drivers play a critical role in how well a Linux system performs. As Linux has turned out to be one of the most popular operating systems used, the interest in developing proprietary device drivers is also increasing steadily.This book will initially help you understand the basics of drivers as well as prepare for the long journey through the Linux Kernel. This book then covers drivers development based on various Linux subsystems such as memory management, PWM, RTC, IIO, IRQ management, and so on. The book also offers a practical approach on direct memory access and network device drivers.By the end of this book, you will be comfortable with the concept of device driver development and will be in a position to write any device driver from scratch using the latest kernel version (v4.13 at the time of writing this book).What you will learnUse kernel facilities to develop powerful driversDevelop drivers for widely used I2C and SPI devices and use the regmap APIWrite and support devicetree from within your driversProgram advanced drivers for network and frame buffer devicesDelve into the Linux irqdomain API and write interrupt controller driversEnhance your skills
