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.
Linice is a source-level kernel debugger for x86 systems with the look and feel of SoftIce for MS Windows. It is designed for people who are already familiar with SoftIce, but anyone can quickly get used to it. It can break into a running kernel at any time using a hotkey and supports breakpoints and single step on modules, the kernel, or user programs. It supports the VGA frame buffer, the X Window System, serial connections, and monochrome adapters.
Kernel Analyzer monitors system activity by recording information about task preemptions and interruptions. The data generated is intended for real-time developers and is useful for analyzing driver timing issues and scheduling efficiency. It can also help by giving an overview of a system.
SMATCH is a neat program designed to locate programming errors in any open source software project. Right now it is actively used to screen out errors inside the Linux kernel. There are two main parts to Smatch. The first is a patch to the gcc sources to screen out a lot of useful information. The second part is a collection of Perl scripts and libraries to analyze the information and report the findings.
KernelDriver automates your Windows 2000/NT, Windows Me/98/95 and Linux device driver development by providing you with powerful tools for hardware debugging, driver code generation, and driver debugging. KernelDriver supports PCI / USB / ISA and EISA drivers. KernelDriver for Windows and Linux includes the powerful Driver Wizard. Using the Driver Wizard you can graphically debug your hardware by "peeking" and "poking" at it without writing a single line of code. After your hardware is diagnosed, use the Driver Wizard to generate a complete kernel mode device driver which will drive your hardware.
Sirid is a Web-based tool for managing software projects. The main features of Sirid are assigning tasks between the personnel, reporting bugs, managing specifications, and recording feature requests. The program also sends notifications of new bugs and tasks to people who have been set responsible for them, and notifies the responsible people when the deadline of some bug or task is approaching. It features graphical presentations for tracking the progress of your project. Sirid keeps you informed of the status of each of your projects, and allows you to take action if difficulties arise.
