I am working on a related project for my Bachelor's
thesis and would really appreciate any help that I can get in this regard. I
am supposed to develop a device driver for the IEEE 802.15.4 nanoLOC
transceiver (for Linux boards) and I have a few questions about how exactly to
go about it.
As far as I understand it, I first need a kernel stack for IEEE 802.15.4 (as
far as I understand mac80211 is the kernel stack for the IEEE 802.11 and I
would need something similar). This Kernel stack, as I understand it, would
then provide a common API for driver development.
So, I would really appreciate if some one could inform me as to what exactly
does programming this stack incorporate? Do I need to implement the PHY and
the MAC layers, and if yes, how do I go about that?
