We don’t want to just make more things. We want to enable individuals to make the things that dominate their lives, rather than leaving it up to someone else. Google Summer of a Code with BeagleBoard.org is a great way to learn skills highly in demand while making a difference in the world.
How to build an embedded system?
An embedded system is built using a computer dedicated to a specific purpose, like a toaster, coffee machine, dish washer, thermostat or anti-lock brakes. You can think of an embedded system as a computer designed to not look like a computer and to automate things in the physical world. The BeagleBoard.org community is loaded with experts on building open source embedded systems, join our forum to connect.
Summary: Building a AVB node the stream reservation protocol and the precision time protocol are to be built in the linux kernel. A demo application will be included for a stereo speaker system with two individual beagle boards.
Summary: The task is to create software support for FPGA cape (based on iCE40 device). The completed project will provide the BeagleBoard.org community with easy to implement and powerful tools for realization of projects based on Programmable Logic Device(FPGA), which will surely increase the number of applications based on it.
Summary: Most of existing PRU applications utilize (waste) one PRU core for data transfer. The goal of this project is to enable usage of EDMA controller for copying of data to and from main memory (DDR), which would allow applications to use both cores for computation.
