After my B.E. degree is from CEC Bantwal. I joined Emertxe in my final semester. It is a fantastic platform to launch our embedded careers. The faculty here are exceptionally well-trained, and they assisted me in learning about the embedded domain. I received a significant number of opportunities from Emertxe, which really helped me land a job at one of the major core corporations. I'm now delighted to report that I was hired by l&t technology services, and I just wanted to thank all of the Emertxe faculty for their assistance.

I completed my M.Tech from Gauhati University in the year 2018. I joined emertxe to undergo training in Embedded system online in the month of February,2022.Recently,I cleared interview with Maxvega Networks.Before joining emertxe,I was underconfindent regarding my programming skills.After joining emertxe, I started to feel confident regarding my coding skills.They conduct regular class tests and module tests which help in having an idea about what kind of questions are asked in recruitment tests by the companies.The mentors,besides teaching,also made us aware of probable interview questions,from every topic.During training,Emertxe believes that no question is stupid. Regarding placement ,they have a very dedicated team for it.Overall ,it was a very good experience with Emertxe.

Short term Courses in Embedded Systems Programming

Co-created with top notch companies

Emertxe training programs are co-created with companies who are building real-time solutions. Our tightly integrated model with companies ensure we teach what companies actually want. Have a look into what some of them have to say. Such backward integration approach makes us as best institute for Linux device drivers courses and workshops.

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.

USB Mass Storage Driver

USB Mass Storage (MMC) Driver

Project brief

Universal Serial Bus (USB) is one of the most versatile and popular interface that exists in any computing device today. The goal of this project is to get a hands-on experience in implementing a USB mass storage driver by understanding Linux block driver interface.

 

This involves understanding the USB mass storage specification and implementing a block driver for a USB storage device. Familiarity with Linux USB subsystem and Linux block driver interface is essential for this project. By the end of this project you would have gained real-time exposure in building driver for USB device and do successful data-transfer.

Technologies used
  • USB Protocol
  • Linux USB Subsystem
  • Linux Block driver Interface
  • SCSI Commands

USB to serial converter

USB to Serial Converter

Project brief

Implement a USB to Serial driver for Linux.
