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
