Kubos HAL Documentation

The Kubos HAL module provides a hardware abstraction layer for the common hardware interfaces found on cubesats. The interfaces provided span across the different hardware platforms support by KubOS.

Currently there is a HAL implemented for KubOS RT on the STM32F4 and MSP430F5529 platforms. Each platform-specific HAL implements the same set of functions provided by the top-level Kubos-HAL.

For KubOS Linux devices, the Linux sysfs interface already provides some abstraction away from the hardware interface. In this instance, the Kubos HAL creates further abstraction, removing the need for the user to learn the intricacies of Linux system calls.


The KubOS Linux HAL is a work in progress. Not all functionality has been implemented yet.
