Asterisk is a hybrid TDM and packet voice PBX (Private Branch eXchange) and IVR platform with ACD functionality. It acts as middleware between the Internet (IAX, SIP, MGCP, Skinny, H.323), telephony channels (like Zaptel, T1, PRI, E1, FXO, FXS, VoIP, VoFR, ISDN, modems, Internet Phone Jack, etc.), and applications (like voice-mail, conferencing, directories, MP3 players, intercoms, etc.). It has many advanced features such as a codec translation API. The base distribution includes several channel backends, as well as applications. However, the beauty of Asterisk is its ability to be extended using its APIs, dynamic module loader, and AGI scripting interface. End users can even write their own applications that run on the system in C or any scripting language of their choice.
This package contains generic Linux drivers for the Conexant HCF (controllerless) modem family used by many modem and computer system manufacturers. They should work on most current Linux distributions, based on the 2.4.x kernels. Some systems may require kernel recompilation with special ACPI patches.
This package contains generic Linux drivers for the Conexant (formerly Rockwell) Softmodem HSF modem family, which are used by many modem and computer system manufacturers. They should work on most current Linux distributions, based on the 2.4.x kernels. A Pentium processor with the MMX enhancements is required. Some systems may require kernel recompilation with special ACPI patches. Preemptible kernels are not yet supported.
picocom is a minimal dumb-terminal emulation program. It is ideal for embedded systems since its memory footprint is minimal (less than 20K, when stripped). Apart from being a handy little tool, the source distribution includes a simple, easy to use, and thoroughly documented terminal-management library.
LinCAN is a Linux kernel module which implements a CAN driver capable of working with multiple cards, even with different chips and IO methods. Each communication object can be accessed from multiple applications concurrently. The driver supports Linux 2.4.x, 2.6.x, and 3.x kernels and implements select, poll, fasync, O_NONBLOCK, and O_SYNC semantics and multithreaded read/write capabilities. It works with the common Intel i82527, Philips 82c200, and Philips SJA1000 (in standard and PeliCAN mode) CAN controllers. It is part of a set of CAN/CANopen-related components developed as one of the OrtCAN project components.
