RDK-B components are designed to avoid platform or silicon dependencies. Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) defines a standard interface for hardware vendors to implement. The HAL layer abstracts the underlying hardware like MOCA, Wi-Fi, etc. through a standard set of APIs defined as part of RDK-B HAL for the respective components. This HAL layer is implemented per platform and the rest of the components can be compiled to run on the new platform without major modifications.
