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
- 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 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.
Developing DVB-S Satellite, DVB-C Cable and DVB-T Terrestrial open, interoperable, and market driven Broadcasting standards for the world to use, The DVB Project is an Alliance of about 200 companies, originally of European origin but now worldwide. Its objective is to agree on specifications for digital media delivery systems, including broadcasting. It is an open, private sector initiative with an annual membership fee, governed by a Memorandum of Understanding.

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.
I met Novasentis in the Silicon Valley, they showed me their ultra thin keyboard powered by their actuators with actual haptic feedback, and its not just sensory but also audible and they can customize both the feeling and the sounds. They refer to their space as the Neo-Sensory Age and they are leading the market in creating actuators that are a fraction of the size of todays incumbent devices. I picked up one of their actual devices, it was thin like paper, weightless, yet the performance was very good because they are not vibrating the entire keyboard or the entire phone, they can localize the vibrations which makes for a better human interface. The products are made from Electro-mechanical Polymer (EMP) technology. This material is comprised of randomly aligned molecules that align in one direction and elongate when electricity is applied. When the EMP material is bonded to a substrate/keyboard, the result is an actuator which provides high definition haptics, audio, or physical morphing feedback yet thinner than a human hair. Novasentis is focused on providing ultra-thin haptic keyboards for the consumer electronics space, but is a platform technology with a variety of innovative uses in industries including mobile devices, wearable, automotive and medical industries. The material is thin, light, flexible and can be the leading contender in the future as major OEMs launch flexible and wearable devices.
