First of all, a huge bunch of thanks to the Emertxe Information Technology.I'm from Davangere, Karnataka and I did my Engineering at UBDT College of Engineering, Davangere, in the year 2021.I wanted to pursue my career in the Embedded field, and so I came to know about this institute.I contacted them via phone calls, and just after my 8th sem results are out, I joined the online batch in August 2021.The teaching of the concepts was very good and all the trainers, lab mentors were very helpful throughout the period.The placement is also very supportive and they'll give us a lot of opportunities, as a result, now within 5 months from joining, I got placed at Cientra Tech Solutions.Here I'm writing this feedback with my whole heart & again thanks to all the administrative & teaching departments of Emertxe. 🙂

What placement companies say about our trainings?

Emertxe advanced embedded systems course is designed in-sync with industry requirements. Our years of experience and fine-tuning the course contents ensures success of our students. Placement companies gain benefit in terms of better hiring ratio, faster deployment into project and lower cost benefits by hiring our Advanced embedded systems course trained students. Here is a snapshot of what they have to say.

Emertxe student performance was Excellent

Our interview rounds were extremely rigorous. Emertxe students performance was excellent during all 3 rounds of F2F interviews. Though they have 6 months training background, interviewers mentioned that their performance was equivalent to 30 months experienced engineers. This immensely saved ramp up time of the team. Emertxe approach of focusing on the core knowledge along with the attitude-transformation is commendable. Looking forward for long term association with Emertxe.

Have Good grasp over the subjects

Our company SHARP Software Development India Pvt Ltd. is a division of SHARP Corporation, Japan and a CMMI Level 5 organization. We are front-runners in the printer products and hence strongly rely on embedded programming. We had some fresher openings in Embedded Systems. Thus, during research we came across Emertxe institute and it proved to be very fruitful as we hired candidates from here. These candidates had a good grasp over the subject expertise they underwent during their course under Emertxe and are proving to be a valuable asset till date. We wish this institute to keep evolving and adapting to the future technological trend and be producing good candidates like always, every year. This immensely saved ramp up time of the team. Emertxe approach of focusing on the core knowledge along with the attitude-transformation is commendable. Looking forward for long term association with Emertxe.

FAQ – Linux Device Drivers – Advanced

We are pretty sure you will have lot of questions before joining our Advanced Linux device drivers course. Here are the frequently asked questions for your reference. In case you still have anything specific write to us at training@emertxe.com

Course FAQ

What is the difference between this and Linux device drivers?
The Linux device drivers (intermediate) course is to provide developers a kick-start with device drivers. It covers essential parts of driver development, but it doesn’t talk about advanced aspects like network drivers, platform drivers, file-systems drivers etc. In the advanced course it covers such topics to provide you with a complete device driver development exposure. By taking up advanced course you will get comprehensive knowledge about device drivers. Such approach makes us the best institute in India to learn advanced Linux device drivers course.
Who should take up this course?
This course is ideal for anyone interested in writing Linux device drivers. Working professionals looking to gain knowledge in this domain. Having some background in Linux is necessary as Linux device drivers workshop is an advanced course.
Why debugging techniques are highlighted in this course?
Given the fact that Linux Kernel is a complex piece of code and most of the driver development happens inside the Kernel, doing effective debugging plays a crucial part. Sine we are introducing advanced topics of device drivers in the course, it will remain incomplete if developers are not aware how to troubleshoot / fix issues. Hence a variety of hands-on topics introduced under the debugging techniques (Querying, Printing, Watching, Tracing etc…) which in combination provides power tools & techniques that will help you in real time problem solving.
What benefits I can get by taking up this workshop?
Technically you will be able to write Linux device drivers on your own by the end of the workshop. With Emertxe Linux Device Drivers learning kit SDK you will be able to develop many interesting drivers all on your own. Key benefits are summarized as follows:

  • Gain edge at your workplace as Linux Device Driver is a hot skill in industry
  • Create some cool products using our self-learning kits
  • Get a real feel of ‘idea-to-realization’ by becoming a maker of things
  • Interact with our expert mentors (even after the workshop)
I am a working professional. How this course will help me?
Compared to other topics, Linux device driver is a technically advanced topic as it requires deeper Linux kernel knowledge. As a working professional by acquiring this knowledge & working on some project will enhance your probability of moving onto internal job change in your current organization or apply for a technically higher profile job outside. With devices becoming more diverse, Linux device drivers skill has become one of the hot and most sought after skill in embedded industry today. By riding this trend you can advance your career.
I already have idea about device drivers. How will this help me?
We understand target audience will have different level of understanding about Linux drivers. It is our best interest to deliver the workshop where the whole class can benefit. If you already have some idea, it will be an added advantage to grasp workshop contents better. During hands-on session we will specifically provide some advanced aspects of drivers (ex: USB) for you to practice and build deeper skills. I already have some idea about device drivers.

Projects & Trainer FAQ

What projects can I work on after course completion?
There are many projects that you can work on based on the course learning. A sample list of projects are provided below.

  • USB Mass Storage (MMC) driver
  • USB to Serial converter
  • Complex matrix keypad driver using interrupts and synchronization
  • Ethernet based network drivers
  • File system drivers
  • Platform drivers

Such comprehensive list of project based learning makes us the best Institute in India to learn advanced linux device drivers course.

How working on these projects enhance my technical profile?
Our projects are designed based on practical industrial use-case, thereby you will be able to apply them in real time projects. On the other hand these projects are scoped well to be executed independently in a relatively shorter duration of time considering your other commitment. After working on them will give you necessary technical depth and application aspects thereby it will definitely enhance your technical profile.
Who are the trainers for Linux device drivers workshop?

What do you mean by one month of lab assistance?
Linux device drivers workshop is conducted on two consecutive weekends. Contents are delivered in a workshop manner, which is power packed. However to realize the real benefit of this workshop, participants need to work on some real time projects / assignments to make the learning effective. In order to support this need, we provide one month lab assistance after the course. During this period our mentors will be providing you support when you are facing difficulty in building device drivers. This includes debugging issues in pair or clarifying your doubts using our online ecosystem. This way your learning will be complete & effective.
I am interested in buying kits. Will you help me?
Sure. Please get in touch with our mentors or admin team. We will do the needful.
I could see we use BeagleBone also in this course. Why so?
In order to provide enriched learning experience, we would like to have diversified set of hardware in our courses. In the similar lines BeagleBone is introduced to demonstrate network debugging & platform driver development.
