OpenBTS and Asterisk allow enthusiasts to deploy homebrew yet Commercial Grade GSM cellular networks with affordable Open Hardware such as the Range Networks SDR. We’ll cover the hardware and software required to make your own cellular network and demonstrate the Range Networks SDR and OpenBTS at work.
See how the Yocto Project is able to deliver quality builds for embedded
Linux with buildbot, automated sanity testing, license collection and
auditing, and build statistics and history tracking.
Always wanted to create hardware devices that can interact with the real world? Heard about the Arduino electronics prototyping platform but not sure how to get started? When you attend this workshop you will: set up an Arduino board & software; learn how the Arduino fits into the field of physical computing; and make your Arduino respond to button presses and blink lights. Hardware is fun!
Pandaboard is the Goliath of Open Hardware Embedded Platforms. A Dual-core Arm Cortex A9 processor aND 1GB of DDR2 RAM make it ideal for a myraid of use scenarios. Pandaboard touts an HDMI interface, Hardware accelerated 1080p HD video playback, 802.11n Wifi, Bluetooth, and USB OTG all on an Omap 4 platform.
Have fun exploring this amazing Open Hardware platform up close and personal.
You can now easily place a trivially sized computing device anywhere a power plug is present. This fast paced session will provide a complete, hands-on review of the currently available Plug format devices, their capabilities, advantages and pitfalls. We will demonstrate development and debugging on the most recent Sheevaplug-class device as a hands-on introduction to embedded Linux environments.
