Coming back from RMLL2011

Posted on Tue 19 July 2011 in General by xcarcelle

We had the last slot of the day after the lacie-nas.org talk (excellent presentation and demonstration from Thomas Monjalon and Simon Guinot) where it was discussed the idea of opening hardware products and the relation between hardware manufacturers and embedded software developers. It becomes clearer and clearer that the OpenSource community is pushing the hardware manufacturers to open-up their specifications (UART, GPIOs, JTAG) and allow firmware hackings and add-ons developments.
In our case, the hardware will be fully open and documented to allow community contributions and we have several questions about TDM extensions of our appliances with other interfaces (analog, wireless, soundcards ...)
