Device Driving ISRs in a System

Writing Device Driving ISRs in a System

  1. A device has three sets of device registers
    1. Data Register
    2. Control Register
    3. Status register
  2. A device initializes by setting the control register bit and the device closes b y resetting the control register bits.
  3. There may be more than one device register at a device address.
  4. Control register bits controls all the action of the device.
  5. Status register bits reflects flags for the status of the device at an instant and changes after performing the actions as per device driver
  6. ISRs can be called either by setting the status flag or a hardware call by a signal to initiate.
  7. The status and control registers should be available at the same address, since the processor reads the status from the address during read operation and writes at the same address during the write operation.

    Parallel Port Device driver in a System

Step A – Device Initialisation Program

Step B – Device Driver Program

Step 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 – Interrupt Service Routine for PORTA.


Serial Device driver in a System

It uses UART 8250 with Intel 80x86 Processor

Steps for Serial Port Device Driver Program

  1. Device initialization codes for UART 8250. Define input and output port Addresses (0x2F8 for serial port address in x86 processors)
  2. Set control bits for interrupt mask and allocate interrupt vector address for device interrupts. (Interrupt vector is a memory address where the driver ISR is located).
  3. Enable all Interrupts in the system.
  4. Enable serial line interrupt.
  5. Set Baud Rate.
  6. Initialize normal serial data output.
  7. Enable interrupt controller as initialization of device is finished in the above steps

Transfer character to serial line device by writing it to port at 0x2F8.

Installing ns-3.34 in Ubuntu 20.04

This post shows how to install ns 3.34 in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Prerequisites: Fresh installation of Ubuntu Version 20.04 LTS  ns3.34 can be downloaded from here Follow the video link for complete step by step instructions on the installation.  This version fixes the compilation issues of vanet-routing-compare.cc (bug in ns3.33)  Issue the following commands after opening a terminal  $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install g++ python3 python3-dev python-dev pkg-config sqlite3 python3-setuptools git qt5-default gir1.2-goocanvas-2.0 python3-gi python3-gi-cairo python3-pygraphviz gir1.2-gtk-3.0 ipython3 openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev autoconf cvs bzr unrar openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev tcpdump wireshark libxml2 libxml2-dev Unzip or untar the ns-allinone-3.34.tar.bz2 in the home folder (in my case its /home/pradeepkumar) $ cd ns-allinone-3.34/ $ ./build.py --enable-examples --enable-tests  Once the installation is completed, you may get an output show

Installation of ns3 in Windows 10 and Windows 11 OS using WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

This post shows how to install ns-3.33 in Windows 10 through WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) This posts works for Windows 11 also (I have tested it on a Windows 11 ISO and it works the Same way as mentioned in the following post.) This post will work for ns-3.3x version. Prerequisites : Install Windows Subsystem for Linux with GUI: Please refer the following video  System Information: OS used: Windows 10 and WSL (Ubuntu 20.04) GUI: XServer for Windows NS3 Version: ns-3.33 See the following complete video on how to install ns3 in Windows 10 Step 0 : Open XLaunch Step 1 :  Open WSL using PowerShell and open it as Administrator Command:/  wsl $ xfce4-session The GUI of Ubuntu Opens within Windows 10 OS. Step 2 : Download ns3 from nsnam.org website through Mozilla Firefox browser Step 3: Open a Terminal  $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev python3-pygraphviz cvs mercurial bzr git cmake p7zip-full python3-matplotlib python-tk python3-dev qt5-q

Installing NS-3.32 in Ubuntu 20.04

This is about installing ns version 3.32 in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. #ns3 #ns3 .32 #networksimulation The commands used in the video are given here. $] sudo apt update $] sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev python3-pygraphviz cvs mercurial bzr git cmake p7zip-full python3-matplotlib python-tk python3-dev qt5-qmake qt5-default gnuplot-x11 wireshark Download the ns-allinone-3.32.tar.bz2 package from nsnam.org and copy it to /home/ folder See the full video for detailed instructions Extract it either in GUI or using command $] tar jxvf ns-allinone-3.32.tar.bz2 $] cd ns-allinone-3.32/ $] ./build.py --enable-examples --enable-tests The above command will take some time to install all the packages  You can see the output as shown below ns3 To check whether ns3 installed successfully, use the following commands. $] cd ns-3.32/ $] ./waf --run hello-simulator You should get the output as Hello Simulator $] ./waf --run first This is the example from the ns-3.32/exa
