This kit provides full courseware on developing embedded Linux products, including Linux kernel configuration and custom peripheral driver development, using newly built ARM-based single-board computers.
The courseware is highly modular and includes a rich set of lecture slides with notes, as well as lab manuals with solutions, covering fundamental theoretical concepts coupled with a hands-on approach that includes real Linux implementations on an ARM Cortex-A9 based i.MX 6Solo SoC, available on the UDOO NEO board (retailing at USD $49.90).
The processor IP company worked in partnership with both academia and industry to develop the ARM University Program Embedded Linux Education Kit.
From academia, Professor Massimo Violante of Politecnico di Torino, Italy, led the academic development of the courseware. On the industry side, ARM worked with AIDILAB srl and SECO USA Inc, who collaborated under the UDOO project to produce the ARM Cortex-A9 based UDOO NEO single board computer, the target of the Embedded Linux Education Kit labs.
To offer customers complete solutions, including convenient access to hardware platforms, ARM has partnered with Mouser to distribute the UDOO NEO boards to academic institutions worldwide.
The Embedded Linux Education Kit teaching materials are available free of charge to qualified academics from universities worldwide. In addition to providing technical support for courseware development, the UDOO project is also supporting this Embedded Linux Education Kit with seed hardware, to be donated to selected academic adopters from universities worldwide.
Donation requests should be made to the ARM University Program.
