    Abstract :

    A design method of ARM, Embedded Linux based multi-channel data acquisition, control and analysis system for Ion Mobility Spectrometer with user friendly GUI is presented in this work. Hardware is designed using ARM SBC, ADC & Ion Mobility Spectrometer. To fulfill the software requirements, embedded software platform is built based on Linux kernel 2.6.32 to improve reliability, memory protection, cost effectiveness, real-time and multi-task processing capability. Device drivers for ADC, Keypad, LCD and other peripherals are developed. Embedded processor is transplanted with cross compiled Linux operating system as well as Qt GUI program to capture IMS data from the respective device, process, store & display data on touch screen LCD. The article gives detailed description of the above design, including transplantation of Linux kernel, Qt, Qwt, touch screen sources and device drivers and the compilation process.
