Guest lecture on real-time linux

Jouko Haapaluoma and Sami Pietikäinen from Wapice gave a guest lecture on real-time linux and driver development in TIE-50506 System Design on Mar 5 2018. The lecture covered the basics of building the kernel and kernel modules (drivers), and the recommended approaches for debugging with typical problems. The main challenge is the combination of real-time responsiveness and concurrency, which is by no means eased by code execution on different contexts the developer might not be well aware. Said that, the poor documentation of the kernel APIs leads to a practice in which nobody starts the driver development from scratch but customize some existing one. Maybe some university (us?) starts working on an open RT Linux driver development framework, which seems to be missing. The guest lecture notes and video recording are available in Moodle for TUT’s staff and students.
