Project: MMC and DMA Linux performance

MMC and DMA Linux performance

Improving performance of MMC driver by understanding issues, improving MMC, DMA drivers and eliminating bottlenecks. A good amount of performance improvement in these drivers of Linux Kernel is possible just by identifying what's going on in hot paths and how things can be done more simply, without breaking anything else. Intelligent buffer allocation and reducing overhead where possible in dependent components such as DMA would be involved.

Project: PyBBIO


Developing the PyBBIO library to include an SPI Library, Library for interfacing a camera and various sensors such as pressure sensor etc. Adding C extension to Python system calls to make the code run faster. Interfacing a BLE module and an example code to but sensor values on Xively's feed.

Project: BotSpeak PRU Firmware


Developing a remoteproc firmware which will allow high level languages to access PRU (programmable real time unit) functionality on the Beaglebone Black via remote procedure calls. The firmware on the PRU will support a small interpreter which can receive code fragments from the client language and execute them in a loop. The scripting language is similar to Chris Rogers' BotSpeak. Developing this library will allow language independent runtime control over the PRU.
