WinDriver automates and simplifies the development of user-mode Linux device drivers for PCI, CardBus, ISA, PMC, PCI-X, PCI-EXPRESS, and CompactPCI as well as USB 1.1/2.0. No internal OS knowledge or kernel level programming is required. It supports kernel 2.0.31 and above, including embedded Linux, x86 and PowerPC processors, and any 32-bit development environment supporting C or Delphi. Applications are source code compatible across Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/XP Embedded/Server 2003/CE, Linux, Solaris, and VxWorks.
Hardware Debugger is a graphical tool for detecting, diagnosing, and testing custom hardware. It is designed to meet the needs of the hardware developer by enabling quick and easy testing of hardware without writing any code. Hardware Debugger runs under Linux, Solaris, and Windows.
JTAG Tools is a software package which enables working with JTAG-aware (IEEE 1149.1) hardware devices and boards through a JTAG adapter. This package has an open and modular architecture with the ability to write miscellaneous extensions like board testers, flash memory programmers, and so on.
Nonpareil is a microcode-level simulator for HP calculators introduced between 1972 and 1982, including the HP-35, HP-45, HP-55, HP-25, HP-34C, HP-38C, HP-41CV, HP-11C, HP-12C, HP-15C, HP-16C, and other models. The necessary microcode is included, as is a microcode assembler. The GTK+ toolkit is used for the user interface.
The goal of this project is to extend an existing open source IDE (KDevelop) with support for compiling, debugging, and executing of parallel MPI programs. Supported MPI implementations are LAM, MPICH, and MVAPICH. The current plugin version runs under Linux on KDE 3.3 with KDevelop 3.1.1. The integration of gdb in KDevelop as an MPI debugger is in progress.
Java PathFinder is a system to verify executable Java bytecode programs. In its basic form, it is a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that is used as an explicit state software model checker, systematically exploring all potential execution paths of a program to find violations of properties like deadlocks or unhandled exceptions. Unlike traditional debuggers, it reports the whole execution path that leads to a defect. It is especially suitable to find hard-to-test concurrency defects in multithreaded programs. The system is unique in terms of its configurability, enabling adaptation to the needs of specific test applications with respect to the properties to check, and with respect to abstraction mechanisms that can be used to improve scalability.
The RDVIS tool helps programmers pin-point the sources of cache misses and poor temporal locality in their source code. The visualization often directs the experienced programmer towards the necessary program transformations within a few minutes. The tool consists of two parts: a GUI that visualizes the low temporal locality patterns, and a patched GCC compiler to extract the low-locality patterns from programs.
