SmartQ V5 - upgrade to V5 Android V3.0

  View Printable Version 
HardwareI upgraded Android on my SmartQ V5 to "V5 Android V3.0". After the upgrade, the language was Chinese again. To fix, start settings (press the menu (middle) button once, then select the icon to the right), scroll to the bottom of the list, then select the second-lowest (second last) item, on the next menu, select the first (upper) item, then select the language you want. Phew. Well, the "about phone" still says that it is Android 1.6 with kernel 2.6.29 on it after the upgrade.

TEMPer - USB Digital Thermometer Dongle

  View Printable Version 
HardwareThe TEMPer is a low cost temperature probe. The deice consists of a usb-serial chip (WinChipHead, a 24xx02 serial EEPROM LM75 temperature sensor CH341) and a LED (the LED is connected to the thermostat output of the LM75). While the software that comes with the device is only for Windows, other solutions do exist. The first one I found was from Tollef Fog Heen's blog, then from Levien van Zon, and finally Stefan Boethke's TEMPer wiki page. The last one works nicely on FreeBSD 8.0-stable, using the uchcom(4) driver.

HardwarePetabytes on a budget: How to build cheap cloud storage explain how you can build network storage cheaper than most commercial alternatives. And the design is freely available. They even explain what software they are using. Very cool!

The Fabulous Logic Analyzer

  View Printable Version 
HardwareHere is another interesting project: The Fabulous Logic Analyzer is a simple logic analyzer for the PC. This one consists of a simple schematic which is attached on the PCs parallel port (a real parallel port is highly recommended, not a USB adapter) and which can analyze H and L levels of 8 inputs. On the PC, there's running a graphical program which displays the contents. Supported platforms: FreeBSD / i386, OpenBSD / i386, Linux, Solaris / x86, Windows.

Zet - x86 compatible soft processor

  View Printable Version 
HardwareSince I got myself an Altera DE1 board, I have been trying out as many FPGA implementations of hardware as I can find time to. Zet processor is an open implementation of the so widely used IA-32 architecture (generally called x86). Currently, only the 16-bit 8086/80186 work. But still it can boot MS-DOS 6.22 and FreeDOS 1.1. I testet Zet version 0.6.1 and followed the Altera DE1 Installation guide, booting from A: in flash. It was very retro to see MS-DOS booting from A: again. except for om screen misalignment, and a noise in the speaker, it worked fine.
