Lightbulb Designing a PCIe driver...


My masters project (through the University of Cape Town) was to design and build a low cost PCIe digitizer card under the GPL (x4 lane PCIe, with a dual channel 500MSPS National ADC). There has been much interest in the card and there has now been an allocation of funds for the development of a Linux driver for my card. The ultimate goal it to integrate the card into the GNU radio project.

I am a newbie to Linux drivers. Does anyone know of any resources that I could tap into or a piece of code that I can use as a template?

Not to be sarcastic but the linux kernel is full of driver code that you can use as a template. The Documentation directory that comes with the kernel has lots of great information.
