RHEED for Linux is designed to aquire data from RHEED (Reflection High Energy Electron Diffraction) images in Molecular Beam Epitaxy and for controlling an electron beam gun. It is possible to determine growth rate of a semiconductor crystal from RHEED-Oscillations, to aquire Lines Of Interest (LOIs) in realtime, and develop incident angle dependent intensity curves. The Electron Beam Gun EK35BR from Staib Instruments is supported.
The Entitlement Based Scheduler (EBS) is a modification of the Linux O(1) CPU scheduler that introduces entitlement based scheduling for SCHED_NORMAL tasks in Linux 2.6 kernels. The design features of the O(1) scheduler that address the issues of scalability and efficiency are retained. Entitlement based sharing means that each task has its own variable entitlement to CPU resources, and the scheduler allocates more CPU time to tasks with greater entitlement. The priority of each task is continually adjusted to achieve this aim.
The Platonos Projects are a group of sub projects aimed to provide Java developers with a stand-alone plugin engine as well as a pluggable Swing application framework similar to other RCP (Rich Client Platforms) available. The goal is to have an out-of-the-box runnable Swing application with the more common pieces applications contain, such as preferences, help, file I/O choosers, configuration, and more all via plugins which can be left out if not needed. Building upon the shell is very easy by simply adding plugins that provide extended behavior for existing plugins, or adding new plugins that will then be extended by other plugins.
