It’s that time again, time to start gathering project ideas and possible mentors for Google Summer of Code. This year, you can be a student even if you aren’t enrolled in school! That’s got me thinking about the key areas we need to help advance education around open source embedded systems. One of the early Beagle community development focuses was software defined radio (SDR). With updates to available CBRS bands, enabling personally unlicensed 5G small cell creation, and unlicensed radio frequency (sub-GHz) low-power wireless networks like IEEE 802.15.4, LoRa, and Wi-SUN, and many new silicon solutions, there are many opportunities … Continue reading Call for topics for open-source embedded systems education projects

We are getting great interest from students this year for Google Summer of Code, but we could use a bit of help from our community getting a great feedback on their proposals. I encourage you to engage with them on #beagle-gsoc and the beagleboard-gsoc mailing list even if you don’t plan to be a mentor, simply to make the proposals better for the community. If you do plan to be a mentor, you are required to sign-up on Melange and make a connection to the BeagleBoard.org group. I will be contacting prospective mentors to verify their commitment and history of … Continue reading Calling all BeagleBoard.org GSoC Mentors
I’m feeling pretty happy and excited today looking at the patches Linus Torvalds has recently merged into the Linux kernel mainline, such as a huge patch set from Tony Lindgren. I’m particularly happy to see that DSS2 is there, so there shouldn’t be any more confusion about what display driver to use on OMAP. The USB EHCI (host port) driver also finally got merged. I also see a large number of power management patches being included. Baseline support for several OMAP3 systems has also been included, including the Always Innovating Touch Book, AM3517 EVM, IGEPv2, CM-T35, OMAP3630 Zoom-3 and some … Continue reading Several OMAP/Beagle patches land upstream for Linux 2.6.33
See the full list of movies in the YouTube playlist. They include OMAP3-based open platforms like the Always Innovating Touch Book and the Oregon State ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) OSWALD, software frameworks running on OMAP3 like Gnome, Ubuntu, GStreamer, and QNX Neutrino, projects for open software defined radio (SDR), hardware projects to expand Beagle with LCDs and Ethernet, the DM355-based open camera project LeopardBoard.org, and new applications like the PicoFlamingo presentation system.
