The objective of the workshop is to provide better understanding of
the Linux device model, the device tree, and the changes required to
port the kernel to a new board. This workshop deals with Board Level
Porting. To understand terminologies associated with porting, please
read our article titled Linux Kernel Porting, Jargon Buster
Target audience include
Embedded Linux BSP Engineers:
The kernel is a fast moving target, and engineers need to catch-up
with kernel improvements from time to time.
This workshop will help engineers to migrate from pre-DT kernels to
the current Device Tree based kernels.
Linux Device Driver Developers:
Device detection and handling in embedded systems is tricky, when
compared to traditional busses like PCI and USB.
The workshop will help developers who have worked on hot-plugable
busses like PCI and USB, to get up to speed with device tree and how
devices are handled in embedded systems.
SoC VLSI Engineers:
SoC engineers generally make customizations to existing SoCs.
The workshop enables engineers to make corresponding modifications to
the kernel, and test their hardware changes on FPGAs and other
Hardware Board Designers:
Hardware designers create a new board designs based on reference board designs.
The workshop enables hardware engineers to work in tandem with
software engineers during board bring-up, by suggesting required
modifications to the device tree and the kernel.
