Embedded systems are dedicated computers that have fixed functions. Although they have been around for sometime, they have explosive growth recently due to the ability of making smaller and faster semiconductor chips. Embedded systems can be divided into two categories. One has the operating system, the other one is without the operating system. When the functions of embedded systems are getting more and more sophisticated, especially when networking is involved, the operating system is needed to make the embedded system design easier. Although there are several embedded operating systems available, the embedded Linux has gained wide popularity. This paper is about the curriculum design of how to teach an embedded Linux system course. It also gives several references which are helpful for the course.
