The Linux Driver and API for Datel PC-462 project aims to produce a Linux driver and API for the Datel PC-462 Data Acquisition Card/Power Supply. From correspondence with Datel, there is no other Linux driver/API for this board. This software will allow developers and engineers to write test software that runs on Linux and incorporates the Datel hardware.
DirectFB is a thin library that provides developers with hardware graphics acceleration, input device handling and abstraction, an integrated windowing system with support for translucent windows and multiple display layers on top of the Linux framebuffer device. It is a complete hardware abstraction layer with software fallbacks for every graphics operation that is not supported by the underlying hardware.
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.
parapin makes it easy to write C code under Linux that controls individual pins on a PC parallel port. This kind of control is very useful for electronics projects that use the PC's parallel port as a generic digital I/O interface. Parapin goes to great lengths to insulate the programmer from the somewhat complex parallel port programming interface provided by the PC hardware, and comes as a user-space C library, or linked as part of a Linux kernel module.
TurboPrint is a comfortable high-quality printer driver system for Linux. It is designed to produce maximum quality photo printouts as well as high-speed text documents. It provides printer drivers for almost every inkjet printer, e.g. Canon PIXMA, Epson Stylus Color and Photo, and HP DeskJet, DesignJet, and PhotoSmart. All printer features are supported. TurboPrint has a real color management system. High quality color profiles ensure optimum color reproduction on all print media. A comfortable GUI configuration menu and a printer toolbox (head cleaning, alignment, ink quantity) are included. TurboPrint can be easily integrated into the CUPS printing system.
rioutil is a utility designed for the use of interfacing with Sonic Blue/dnna's third, fourth, and fifth generations of flash MP3 players (Rio 600/800/900/S-Series/Riot/Cali/Chiba/Fuse and Nike psa[play). On many players, it goes beyond the packaged software by providing downloading.
Hwclock is a program that runs under Linux and sets and queries the Hardware Clock, which is often called the Real Time Clock, RTC, or CMOS clock. This is the program that most Linux systems use to get the time from the Hardware Clock and set the System Time at boot time. This program works on ISA (Intel), Alpha, SPARC, and M68K systems with or without /dev/rtc.
