ECE 471 16-CSkill-5 Application Layer Definition : The programs that are specific to the application but independent of computer platforms and communication protocols. The application layer may not be reusable. Why use application layer : Enable the application program to use different hardware and use different communication protocols What knowledge is needed to design the application layer a clear understanding of the particular application, and the functionality and information provided by the hardware abstraction layer and driver layer.

ECE 471 16-CSkill-6 Definition : The software that provides the hardware configuration, signal handshaking, packing of bits and bytes into abstracted messages and unpacking messages into bit/byte strings. Why use driver layer : The code is independent of application programs. The code may be reused in different applications. Isolates application programs from performing detailed hardware configuration, communication interfaces, and message formatting . Driver Layer

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
