Google Summer of Code 2014 Intern at Linaro

Posted by – October 8, 2014

Gaurav Minocha, a GSOC’14 student intern at Linaro, completed the project Linux Flattened Device Tree Selfchecking, under the guidance of Grant Likely, CTO office.

He was invited to give a talk on his work at LCU14

Linux Flattened Device Tree Selfchecking is a test suite to test the OF device tree interface used in device driver development. Traditionally, following input data was configured for the successful execution of Selfchecking tests.
– Append the testcase data to the current device tree (i.e. add a #include testcases.dtsi to the board .dts file to add in the
testcase data)
– Enable the testcase driver (i.e. enable OF_SELFTEST symbol in kernel config)

What was the problem above? – All the platforms had their custom device tree file so to execute the Selfchecking tests, and before enabling the DT self test the testcase data had to be manually appended to the device tree file (as mentioned above)

As a GSOC’2014 student intern, Gaurav Minocha removed the manual process of appending the testcase data to the board_specific .dts files, that is the input for the selftests. So, he has designed and improved the current code to automate the addition of the test data to the current device tree, if OF_SELFTEST symbol is enabled. In simple words, now user just needs to enable the appropriate config symbol to run the self tests.

LiveU LU200 compact Network Bonding Device for Live Broadcasting

Posted by – October 8, 2014

LiveU presents their new LU200 at a lower price point and more compact, easier to use for every broadcaster camera, integrates with LiveU’s cloud-based platform, the idea is to be small and portable enough to enable every field camera to be equipped with a bonding uplink unit for live broadcasting from anywhere. It weighs just over 500 grams, the LU200 is available in a pouch or camera-mount configuration, LiveU LU200 supports two 4G LTE/3G modems together with Wi-Fi and LAN connections and includes LiveU’s proprietary antenna modules for extra resiliency. The flexible LU200 can also serve as a stand-alone video encoder with satellite integration functionality, or be used as a LiveU DataBridge mobile hotspot for all IP applications in the field. LiveU makes live video broadcasting possible anywhere, in any situation, even when there is a lot of interference it can still get a live streaming video upload signal through from the camera by bonding all of these networks together in one box.

Cholesteric LCD from Kent Displays for writing applications and accessories

Posted by – October 8, 2014

When I was traveling in the USA last week, I had the chance to catch up with Sri who gave me a detailed description of what Kent Displays is doing with its latest Cholesteric LCD for writing applications. Kent Displays is famous for its Boogie Board which he said was being shipped in millions of units and they are now using the same technology to build mobile phone accessories where you can eWrite on the cover, this technology can be used to create electronic writing surfaces on laptops, tablets, appliances, educational toys etc. This LCD technology is well proven, they make them in a roll to roll coating factory in Ohio, the displays are very thin, flexible, light, very nicely visible in bright sunlight as you can see here filmed near the San Francisco bay (sorry about the wind), the writing is similar to paper, the 8” display with a small battery works for an impressive 7 years, means charging isn’t even required.
