Simple open hardware platforms, such as the Arduino, have reignited interest in electronic systems design as a hobby, accessible to those outside the industry. While the Arduino platform has given us a model of simplicity that enables novices to build their own inventions with components as complex as a microcontroller, even greater simplicity and collaboration are possible by utilizing the full capabilities of Linux and such familiar technologies as building web pages.
An introduction to the reasoning behind building Bonescript is given along with a brief tutorial on the environment and API. The basics behind building add-on hardware is also covered along with concepts that will result in minimal software development.
Jason Kridner is the chief software architect for the Sitara ARM microprocessor business at Texas Instruments (TI) and the director of community development. Jason is the former chief technologist for TI’s portable audio and video business and began in DSP applications as a hardware developer, working on board, FPGA, and ASIC designs. Using his software experience prior to TI, Jason transitioned to lead software development of low-power media software, audio processing, file systems, USB drivers, digital rights management, and video codecs. As one of the founders of the BeagleBoard.org project, Jason is seeking to make web appliances something that electronics hobbyists can put together on their own and customize however they desire. Jason has presented at CES, ELC, multiple ARM developer conferences, numerous ESC events, MontaVista Vision, LugRadio Live, and in on-line and community developer events.
