WIP: Tools of the Embedded Trade

Embedded systems are built upon a careful layering of many technologies. Here are some tools of the trade when working on embedded.


  • dtc for device tree compiling and decompiling
  • powerdebug for clocks and regulators
  • memtool for memory mapping registers


  • drm_info for showing drm capabilities


  • v4l2-ctl for showing v4l2 device features
  • vainfo for showing va compatible devices
  • gstreamer (gst123) for testing video and audio playback
