The Smart Card Detective (SCD) is a general framework for research on smart cards. It allows you to monitor any smart card application (including Chip and PIN / EMV transactions) and create your custom applications. The software is completely open source, and the hardware can be bought from Smart Architects. The device has a smart card interface as well as a terminal/reader interface, allowing the SCD to act as a passive/active monitor between a card and a reader or emulate a card or a terminal. Using the Python command line interface, you can interact with the SCD using a PC. This allows more flexible operation, although the SCD also features many stand-alone applications and a battery so that you can also use it without a PC.
HelenOS is a microkernel-based multiserver operating system designed from scratch. By decomposing the operating system functionality into tens of isolated but intensively communicating userspace servers, it provides a computing environment that has several virtues such as flexibility, increased robustness, well defined explicit interfaces, and smaller complexity of individual components. HelenOS does not aim to be another clone of Unix or some other legacy system and is not POSIX-compliant (even though it may seem POSIX-similar at times). Instead, the goal has been to design it according to what is the most elegant and right thing to do. What makes HelenOS unique among the other multiserver operating systems is its multiplatform and multiprocessor microkernel. It will run on seven different processor architectures ranging from a 32-bit uniprocessor little-endian ARMv4 to a 64-bit multicore big-endian UltraSPARC T1.
SLOCCount is a suite of programs for counting physical source lines of code (SLOC) in possibly large software systems. It can count physical SLOC for a wide number of languages. It can take a large set of files and automatically categorize their types using a number of different heuristics, and also comes with analysis tools.
YASP is a simple and open protocol for building networks with small microcontrollers. It is designed to have a small footprint for easy implementation with minimal hardware resources, but without sacrifice advanced features and future growth. The protocol scalability is implemented using variable length fields. The physical layer use the NRZ encoding as in RS-232, but using dominant and recessive bus states to provide a reliable way to detect collisions.
The rcpod (Remote Controlled PIC of Doom) project is based on firmware for the PIC16C745 or PIC16C765 microcontrollers that executes I/O operations on behalf of the USB host. Included are libraries for C and Python programs to access the rcpod device, PCB layouts for rcpod devices, and example programs. It currently supports basic general-purpose I/O, pulse-width modulation, synchronous and asynchronous serial, and RS-485.
Charm++ is a portable adaptive runtime system for parallel applications. Application developers create an object-based decomposition of the problem of interest, and the runtime system manages issues of communication, mapping, load balancing, fault tolerance, and more. Sequential code implementing the methods of these parallel objects is written in C++. Calls to libraries in C++, C, and Fortran are common and straightforward. Charm++ is portable across individual workstations, clusters, accelerators (Cell SPEs and GPUs), and supercomputers such as those sold by IBM (Blue Gene, POWER) and Cray (XT3/4/5/6). Applications based on Charm++ are used on at least 5 of the 20 most powerful computers in the world.
