Embedded Linux

When facing the task of assembling an embedded Linux system, one may easily feel overwhelmed by the multitude of possible variants and available packets. But what do I really need in order to fulfill my set of requirements? And how can I achieve these requirements by means of open source software?

On the one hand, this training course aims at providing a guideline for a first draft and the design of a specific target system. On the other hand, it presents available tools and their target-oriented application in the context of an embedded Linux system.

During this training course, you will acquire practical skills by building an embedded Linux system, starting with the JTAG-connection and continuing from the bootloader to the kernel including a root file system. A complete embedded Linux system will be built from bare-bone hardware, an industry-standard ARM-based motherboard provided by Wiesemann und Theis Ltd.

Each participant will have a dedicated board at his disposal. The exercises are designed platform independently, thus enabling the easy transfer of acquired skills to the context of your own projects. Only open source components available across all established architectures will be used.

The training course is structured into four parts:

The participant will acquire the necessary skills required to indepentently create an embedded Linux system. The tools shown are of exemplary nature and knowledge acquired can be transferred easily to other tools.
