Developing Reusable Device Drivers for Microcontrollers

Jacob Beningo  (President/Embedded Software Consultant, Beningo Embedded Group)

Location: Room 210

Date: Thursday, August 29

Time: 9:00am - 9:45am

Track: ESC - Focus on Fundamentals

Format: Technical Session

Vault Recording: TBD

The speed at which a developer is expected to write software often results in device drivers that are difficult to understand and hard to maintain. This session describes methods and techniques that can be used to develop re-usable abstracted device drivers that are easy to maintain and speed up software development. A method for driver abstraction is examined in addition to a brief look at key C language features. A layered approach to software design will be explored with common driver design patterns for I/O, SPI, and EEPROM being presented.
