Linux Drivers

Building the ADI Linux kernel

Common elements for all kernel builds:

  • make sure you have make installed on your system, but we generally recommend installing the build-essentials tools for your Linux distribution
  • some builds will require you to have u-boot-tools installed, to have the mkimage utilities available, so it's good to have them available/installed

Target specific details:

The rapid increase in use of free and open-source software (FOSS), in particular Linux, represents the most significant, all-encompassing, and long-term trend that the embedded industry has seen since the early 1980s.1) Like many, Analog Devices creates and maintains Linux Drivers for various Analog Devices products.

Analog Devices uses six designations to inform our customers where a semiconductor product is in its life cycle. From emerging innovations to products which have been in production for twenty years, we understand that insight into life cycle status is important. Device life cycles are tracked on their individual product pages on, and should always be consulted before making any design decisions. Drivers for obsolete devices are still tracked/maintained/supported on a best effort basis, since we understand the life cycle of end products that ADI's devices are designed into can be longer than the life cycle of the semiconductor product itself.
