Understanding and Using the No-OS and Platform Drivers

Understanding and Using the No-OS and Platform DriversThis article describes the use of No-OS (No Operating System) Drivers and Platform Drivers for building an application firmware with ADIs Precision A/D Converters and D/A Converters, which offer a high level of performance in speed, power, size and resolution. Rapidly advancing technologies need software support (firmware drivers and example code) to simplify the design in process. Embedded firmware examples based on No-OS drivers are provided to support Precision Converters. No-OS drivers are responsible for device configuration, data capture from a converter, and to perform the calibration, etc., while firmware examples based on the No-OS drivers facilitate transfer of data to a host PC for display, storage, and further processing.
