TimVideos.us and Google Summer of Code 2016!
The TimVideos.us project is happy to announce that it has been selected to participate in the Google Summer of Code for 2016 (GSoC). GSoC is a program where students are paid to contribute to selected open source projects over the northern hemisphere summer, flip bits not burgers!
The application period is now open and students have until 25 March 19:00 UTC to apply to work with the TimVideos.us project. The list of proposal ideas includes contributing to the HDMI2USB and things related to the Numato Opsis.
Due to the focus on hardware, we are very interested in students who are interested in things like VHDL/Verilog and other HDLs, embedded C programming and operating systems and electronic circuit/PCB design. Some possible ideas include;
Working on USB 3.0 support for ultra high speed video capture.
Porting a real operating system such as Linux or RTEMS to our SoC to allow easier development of new features.
Making use of the Ethernet interface for connecting multiple devices together and alternative capture interfaces.
Creating new expansion board and supporting the professional SDI standard.
If you are interested in applying, your first point of call should be our Google Summer of Code page. Even if you can’t apply to GSoC, you can also help us by forwarding this message to anyone you might think who is interested!
