HKG18-120 – Structured Documentation and Validation for Device Tree

Session ID: HKG18-120
Session Name: HKG18-120 – Structured Documentation and Validation for Device Tree
Speaker: Grant Likely
Track: Kernel

★ Session Summary ★
Devicetree has become the dominant hardware configuration language used when building embedded systems. Projects using Devicetree now include Linux, U-Boot, Android, FreeBSD, and Zephyr. However, it is notoriously difficult to write correct Devicetree data files. The dtc tools perform limited tests for valid data, and there there is not yet a way to add validity test for specific hardware descriptions. Neither is there a good way to document requirements for specific bindings. Work is underway to solve these problems. This session will present a proposal for adding Devicetree schema files to the Devicetree toolchain that can be used to both validate data and produce usable documentation.
