Linux is a 32-bit multitasking and multimedia operating system that enables applications to access the devices on a system to perform specific functions. It supports a wide range of software from TEX to the C/C++ compiler and TCP/IP. The Linux system provides a complete Unix programming environment which includes standard libraries, programming tools, compilers and debuggers. You can understand the terms like cross platform, target hardware and know how to rebuild Linux to target hardware. We offer training course for students as well as professionals who want to learn about Linux, porting of Linux on ARM9, device driver development, system programming and ARM9 and kernel configuration.
