GetData is a library that provides an API to interface with dirfile databases. The dirfile database format is designed to provide a fast, scalable format for storing and reading binary, synchronously-sampled, time-ordered data. GetData was originally written for the BOOMERanG and BLAST experiments as a data format suitable for use for both quick-look and data reduction. It is now used by many other cosmological and astrophysical experiments including ACT, Planck, Spider, Keck, as well as other projects.
Forban is a P2P file sharing application for link-local and local area networks. Forban works independently from the Internet and uses only the local area capabilities to announce, discover, search, or share files. Forban relies on HTTP and is opportunistic, meaning that it replicates any files of interest seen in its proximity. The Forban protocols are minimalistic to ease the production of other implementations.
Ardpicprog is an Arduino-based solution for programming PIC microcontrollers from Microchip Technology Inc, such as the PIC16F84, PIC16F628A, PIC12F675, etc. The solution consists of a circuit that is built on one or more shields, a sketch that runs on the Arduino to directly interface to the PIC, and a host program to control the HEX file reading and writing process.
