LVC21F-304 ACPI overlays for embedded devices

Session Abstract

Level: Intermediate ACPI SSDT overlays is quite useful for embedded devices when one may change device configuration at runtime, while being advertised as a debug mechanism in such case. The goal is to show how to create an overlay for most used peripheral (usually I²C or SPI connected) and manage it at runtime.
