This is one of the few courses around which will introduce you to embedded Linux development using ARM based processors and the ARM DS-5 IDE.
Linux is an Open source operating system and is maintained by a very active community. At the end of the course, you will be provided with the best resources for furthering your knowledge and expertise.

This course introduces embedded Linux development to existing embedded system-on-chip developers. It focuses on ARM based processors and the ARM DS-5 IDE. Little or no experience of embedded Linux or Linux application development is assumed. This course takes advantage of the DS-5 package to help speed up the learning process and remove impediments, whilst focusing on the requirements of embedded applications (such as low level hardware access & TCP/IP socket communication).
For the embedded software engineer, starting embedded Linux application development can present a major hurdle. Conceptually, things are very different to development using an RTOS or bare metal programming… Linux shows its mainframe heritage. To further complicate matters, embedded Linux application development normally requires development tools that run under Linux. The learner therefore needs to first install and learn the basics of desktop Linux. Once this hurdle has been surmounted, there are then various choices for open source development tools: both command line and IDE-based. Although this wide choice is very powerful, it represents a fierce challenge as one attempts to find a learning path. The purpose of this Course is to provide a unified, coordinated path for embedded developers starting out in embedded Linux programming. There are actually very few books which focus on embedded Linux programming. Once you have a working Linux platform the newbie developer is faced with the question ‘What do I do Next?’ This course is designed to answer that question.
