Embedded Linux on ARM is an intensive professional training program. During this training the trainees will learn about ARM embedded Processors Architecture and assiciated boards. Linux internals will be covered intensively and the trainees will configure their own embedded Linux operating system. The Embedded operating system will then be ported onto the ARM based embedded board. The trainees will get additional support for preparing the required toolchain, configuring arm-gcc cross compiler.
Training Topics in brief:
Salient Features of Training Program
Embedded Linux on ARM is the use of Linux in embedded computer systems. Linux has been ported to a variety of CPUs which are not only primarily used as the processor of a desktop or server computer, but also ARM, AVR32, ETRAX CRIS, FR-V, H8300, IP7000, m68k, MIPS, mn10300, SuperH, and Xtensa processors, It is also used as an alternative to using a proprietary operating system and toolchain. Linux is an open source operating system. It enjoys support by a large group of engineers contributing back into the open source (similar process to the FSF's GNU tools).This makes Linux a very dynamic and fast moving operating system.
An Embedded Linux on ARM Cortex A8 using Storage Based Project
Linux is gaining in popularity in embedded systems. Many commercial vendors specialize in porting Linux to embedded systems. This project involved developing the tool-chain cross platform devlopment environment on host and porting Linux to a specific embedded system(ARM cortex A-8 based system ) using MMC storage.
Until now, most embedded operating systems have been proprietary. If a new processor was designed and developed by a semiconductor company, they had to depend on an operating system company to port their operating system to the new processor. The other issue was with the development tools (compiler, debugger, simulator, and so on) for the given processor. Usually the operating system company also provided these tools. In addition, the peripherals around the processor required drivers that had to be developed for the specific operating system. With the introduction of Linux into the embedded sphere, it has become possible for the semiconductor company itself to port an operating system to a new processor, since the source code for the Linux kernel is available as open source. The GNU project provides a wealth of development tools that support Linux and are also open source. In addition, many device drivers are available for Linux, which could be used directly or as a starting point for your target devices.
