Describes how to get started with the Interrupt platform service.

Getting started


The following diagram shows the architecture of the Interrupt platform service:

Figure: Interrupt platform service architecture

The Interrupt platform service provides an interface between the interrupt controller in the hardware and device drivers in the kernel-side. The Interrupt platform service is implemented in the ASSP/Variant module.

Key users

  • Device driver developers – to bind and unbind interrupts.

  • Hardware implementers and base port developers - to implement an interrupt dispatcher to manage interrupts.
