fpgasm creates bare-metal FPGA designs without Verilog or VHDL. Traditionally, FPGAs are built using proprietary Verilog or VHDL language implementations provided by the vendor. fpgasm is to Verilog and VHDL as assembly language is to C++. It takes you all the way to the netlist, and is not just a translator to Verilog. Because of that, the total "make" time to a working fpga is seconds, not minutes. With fewer than ten reserved words, fpgasm syntax can be mastered in a few minutes. With FPGA assembler, you can focus on understanding the FPGA substrate and how your design should map onto it (instead of figuring out large and complicated tools).
hwmultd is a daemon which, when run in server mode, periodically polls some hardware device, like an entropy source, and multicasts that information. Alternatively, hwmultd can run in client mode, listening for multicasted information and then acting accordingly, like adding gathered entropy to the local pool. Its simple plugin system allows hwmultd to be agnostic with respect to the hardware, which could include devices such as temperature probes or time sources.
OpenSCB is a hardware and software solution for controlling servos over USB. The hardware is designed to interface with classic RC servos, AX-12/AX-18 servos, OpenServo, and more using a powerful 32-bit microcontroller with a USB port for programming and control with a PC. The schematic and layout will be available and can be customized. A graphical interface is also provided for your computer to configure, calibrate, and control the board.
Likwid is a set of easy to use command line tools for Linux. It supports programmers in developing high performance multi-threaded programs. "Likwid" stands for "Like I knew what I am doing". It contains the following tools: likwid-topology, which shows thread and cache topology; likwid-perfctr, which measures hardware performance counters on Intel and AMD processors; likwid-features, which shows and toggles hardware prefetch control bits on Intel Core 2 processors; likwid-pin, which pins a threaded application without touching its code (it supports pthreads, Intel OpenMP, and gcc OpenMP), likwid-powermeter which prints the Turbo mode steps and measures energy consumption on supported Intel processors, and likwid-bench, a low level benchmarking framework. It works with any standard Linux kernel. Likwid is lightweight and adds no overhead during measurements.
Ejecter is a little tool that makes it possible to unmount external devices and eject CD-ROMs without having to right-click on the device icon (either on the desktop or in Nautilus). It sits in the background and shows an icon in the system tray when one or more peripherals are connected to your PC: once clicked, a window appears with the list of the devices (volume name and device type, and much clearer than the similar thing available on Windows) and the related eject button. Being written in Vala, it is translated into C code and then compiled. This means that it's lightweight and consumes little memory, does not require a full VM like Python, and has no strange requirements to run (just GLib/GTK).
Open-BLDC is firmware for STM32 microcontroller based brushless motor controllers. The goal of the project is to support active freewheeling, active break, adjustable timings, rotation speed and power controllers, and many more. Support for multiple interfaces like PPM, RS232, I2C, and CAN is planned.
