What you will learn in this course

1
Preparing
Preparing and setting up a Linux virtual computer with everything you need for compilation. Download YOCTO and create uBoot, Kernel, Device Tree and Filesystem for the reference board. What Linux to install. Installing and configuring TFTP. How to create images for the reference board.
2
Starting
Compiling YOCTO for a custom board. Creating an SD Card needed to boot up a custom board. Boot up your board to try the generated software. How to try new uBoot, Kernel, Device Tree, and Filesystem. Setting up a new repository using GitHub to store the source code. Start adding support for your custom boards into uBoot.
3
Starting with uBoot
Create initial uBoot files with support for your custom hardware. Which files are important to create and edit. What commands you need to run to compile uBoot and compile uBoot for your custom board. How to run DDR3 calibration to get values for the memory controller and how to get DDR3 controller register values.
4
Working with uBoot
Uploading and starting uBoot directly from the CPU without any firmware. Editing uBoot files to add custom board support, including finding the important files. Configuring pins of the CPU in uBoot. Setting up the proper pin function and pin properties. Working with repositories and how to upload code changes to GitHub.
5
Linux Kernel
Which files are important to create and edit files in the Kernel source code to support custom hardware. Compiling Linux for your custom board. Finally, learn what commands will compile Kernel. How to use uBoot to download and test the new Kernel and Device tree by learning the necessary commands for file transfer.
6
Starting with YOCTO
Create a new meta-layer for a custom board in YOCTO, which will allow you to tell YOCTO about your new board. Adding support for your custom board into YOCTO uBoot and Kernel by telling YOCTO to compile your uBoot and Kernel source code.
7
Working with YOCTO
Compile and generate images for your custom hardware using YOCTO. Creating an SD card with the newly generated custom images which will boot up to Linux. Rebuilding your YOCTO project from scratch and test how your clients and customers will be rebuilding your custom source code.
8
Variant in uBoot
Adding variant support into uBoot for your custom board with different CPU and memory size. Methods of flashing uBoot on new boards or updating it on running boards. Additionally, you will learn about FUSES, eFUSES, and Bootstrap options, and how to use them to tell the CPU from which peripheral it should boot up.
9
Variant in Kernel
Adding variant support into Kernel for a custom board variant with different CPU and memory size. Procedure of updating Kernel on SD card for an existing board and how to prepare an SD card with a downloaded file system. About uBoot environment variables and Kernel command line, including how to update them. Apt-get command in a filesystem.
10
Variant in YOCTO
In this lesson, you will learn how to add variant support into YOCTO for a custom board with a different CPU and memory size. You will also learn how to show other people, clients, and customers how they can compile your YOCTO source code for your boards.
