Linux

Installing, programming and writing drivers

Industrial applications are more and more often performed using an embedded version of Linux. In addition, the very specific environment in which run these systems sometimes make it necessary to adapt the Linux installation to the hardware environment.

Ac6-training trainings not only teach you how to build applications on embedded Linux, but also how to adapt the operating system to your hardware or environment when the need arises.

All our Linux trainings are using the integrated development environment System for Workbech Linux - Basic Edition, which is provided for free to all our students to enable them to continue, after the training, to work in a friendly, efficient and mastered environment.

We also offer (see the "SysAdmin" tab) a range of training to help you set up and administer a Linux infrastructure of workstations and servers.

You can see detailed course descriptions of the various trainings by using the above navigation bar. You can also click on course identifiers in the following course briefs hereafter.

Main Courses

D0 - Programmation Linux   La programmation utilisateur sur Linux
D1 - Embedded Linux   Building and installing an embedded and real-time Linux platform
Installing Linux on an embedded system is a common yet often difficult task. Many Open Source tools are supposed to make things easier, but must be properly controlled to obtain satisfactory results. This training presents you the most common of these tools (crosstool-NG, buildroot, OpenEmbedded, Yocto, System Workbench for Linux ...) and how to use them. The problems due to porting the u-boot bootloader and implementing a Linux BSP are also discussed as well as a porting methodology.

D1S - Embedded Linux with Ac6 System Workbench   Implementing Linux on Embedded Systems

Installing Linux on an embedded system is a common yet often difficult task. Ac6 System Workbench was designedis to make things easier and to be easily extended. This training presents you the architecture and needs of an Embedded Linux platform and explains how to build it using Sysetm Workbench for Linux. The problems due to porting the u-boot bootloader and implementing a Linux BSP are also discussed as well as a porting methodology.

D1Y - Embedded Linux with Yocto   Building embedded Linux platforms using Yocto

Installing Linux on an embedded system is a common yet often difficult task. The Yocto project is meant to make things easier, but must be properly controlled to obtain satisfactory results. This training presents you the architecture and needs of an Embedded Linux platform and explains how to build it using Yocto. The problems due to porting the u-boot bootloader and implementing a Linux BSP are also discussed as well as a porting methodology.

D3 - Linux Drivers   Writing Linux Drivers

This course covers the various techniques needed to write Linux (2.6 and 3.x) drivers, bus management (PCI. ..), hot-plug and auto-configuration of devices as well as the specific problems due to multi-core and advanced processors.

D4 - Real-time Linux   Real-time Linux with RT-Preempt patch and Xenomai

This course presents the various solutions for a real-time Linux and the tools to measure real-time performances

D5 - Embedded GUI   Graphical User Interfaces for Embedded Linux
D7 - Linux drivers hotplug and power management   Writing drivers with hot-plug and power management support

This course delves into the concepts of generic devices/drivers for Linux, the management of hotplug, as well as writing drivers for USB host and gadget. It also covers the whole issue of power management in recent versions of the 2.6 Linux kernel.

D8 - USB Linux Drivers   Writing USB-2.0 and USB-3.0 host and gadget drivers on Linux

This course details the Linux driver model, the USB hotplug and power management architecture to write USB host (client) drivers as well as gadget drivers.

Q1 - Embedded GUIs with Qt   Embedded GUIs with Qt

This course covers the installation and use of Qt to make embedded GUIs

Y1 - Yocto   Building Linux using Yocto

Installing Linux on an embedded system is a common yet often difficult task. The Yocto project is meant to make things easier, but must be properly controlled to obtain satisfactory results. This training presents you the architecture of Yocto and how to parameterize it to fit your needs.

Additional Courses

G1 - Android Installation   Android installation on a hardware platform
Installing Android on a new platform is a complex process; you need to port first the Linux kernel then install the Android platform. Even if using an existing Android Open Source Platform, the process to create an usable image is quite complex. This course will explain all the required steps, from building the kernel and the platform from source code to tailoring the boot process and creating test applications.

G2 - Android Programming   Programming applications for the Android platform

Android was designed to allow quickly creating powerful and ergonomic interfaces for embedded, resource constrained, systems; however, due to th elimitations of the underlying hardware, Android applications are totally different from standard applications. This course will explain how they are structured and how Android allows to combine portability and performance in applications.

G3 - Android Internals   Android Frameworks and HAL Implementation

Installing Android on a new platform is a complex process requiring a deep understanding of the internals of the Android frameworks and the Hardware Abstraction Layer. This course explains how the frameworks are structured and can be adapted to a platform on which a basic Android port already exist.

G5 - Android for Industrial System Control   Building friendly interfaces for industrial systems with Android

New industrial systems need sophisticated and ergonomic user interfaces. Building these with traditional GUI toolkits may be cumbersome and difficult. Android may simplify these tasks, allowing industrial application developers to benefit from the tools developped for consumer electronics devices.

N3I - IPV6   Architecture et programmation d'un réseau IPV6

Maîtriser la mise en place du nouveau protocole réseau IPV6 et savoir programmer une application utilisant IPV6

RT1 - Real Time and Multi-Core programming   Programming Linux real-time and multi-core systems, avoiding common pitfalls

Real-time and embedded code, especially targetting multicore processors, cannot be effectively tested; it must be validated before coding. This training help you master mutitask and real-time programming of multi-core processors, understanding how to effectively solve problems using the primitives provided by the underlying Operating System.

SW1 - System Workbench for Linux   Building embedded Linux systems using System Workbench

Installing Linux on an embedded system is a common yet often difficult task. Ac6 System Workbench was designedis to make things easier and to be easily extended. This training presents you the architecture of Ac6 System Workbench and how to parameterize it to fit your needs.
