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.
- Current issues with driver development
- Methodologies to improve driver development
- Methods for abstracting device drivers
- Key C language features that can improve drivers and code readability
- Understanding of layered software development and the importance of interface control documents
- Examples of properly designed I/O, SPI and EEPROM drivers
- Methods of code organization
