This page is work in progress, I will remove this message when done. Then you can start working on tasks
These tasks are for you to get familiar with the IIO subsystem.
Experimenting with IIO subsystem
For this we will use two kernel modules found in drivers/staging/iio:
iio_dummy_evgen.ko - generates fake events interrupts to be used by the iio_dummy example driver
implementation for this module is in iio_dummy_evgen.c
iio_dummy.ko - example IIO driver to demonstrate existing functionality
core implementation can be found in iio_simple_dummy.c
buffer functionality is implemented in iio_simple_dummy_buffer.c
events functionality is implemented in iio_simple_dummy_events.c
Dummy modules compilation
You need to select the following config options:
CONFIG_IIO_DUMMY_EVGEN - for building iio_dummy_evgen kernel module
CONFIG_IIO_SIMPLE_DUMMY - for building iio_dummy kernel module
CONFIG_IIO_SIMPLE_DUMMY_EVENTS, CONFIG_IIO_SIMPLE_DUMMY_BUFFER should be selected for events and buffer functionality.
Use the following commands for modules compilation:
$ make drivers/staging/iio/iio_dummy_evgen.ko
$ make drivers/staging/iio/iio_dummy.ko
Use the following commands for module loading:
$ insmod iio_dummy_evgen.ko
$ insmod iio_dummy.ko
- Show that the modules were successfully loaded.
- ls -l /sys/bus/iio/devices/
- ls -l /sys/bus/iio/devices/iio:device0/
- ls -l /sys/bus/iio/devices/iio_evgen/
IIO event monitor
IIO event monitor is an user space example application which reads events from IIO layer and pretty prints the results. Implementation can be found in iio_event_monitor.c under tools/iio/. BR
compile iio_event_monitor.c to obtain an executable called iio_event_monitor.
