    Dear all,

    Can anybody suggest me a project (open source or part-time job or
    intern)?I need a project to develop my skills.

    I am targeting at embedded system sofware or firmware for wireless
    multimedia application, such as device driver, assembly programming,
    DSP programming, RTOS porting and so on.

    My skills:
    1. I am excellent in C++ programming and have working experiences in
    compiler design and multimedia processing. I am also good at wireless
    protocol design.

    2. I am good at verilog programming and IC design for multimedia
    application by using Synopsys and Cadence. Currently I am focusing on
    FPGA prototyping.

    3. I have a little working experiences in device drivers for WinNT and
    MCU based board design.

    4. I am firmiliar with DSP programming, ucLinux and ARM based embedded
    system. But no working experiences. I am interested in them and need

    I can do the project(no paid). Any suggestion is welcome.

    How about an internet video phone.

    A small LCD screen, USB camera, microphone and speaker.

    Modem or broadband interface.

    Not entry level, but interesting.

    There maybe enough open source software out there to make this easy.


    PS: maybe a product in it !!!

  3. (A) Pick up a target system with an USB slave connection, or add the
    USB connectivity to a target system.

    (B) Add GDB (GNU debugger) USB connectivity to the GDB remote protocol

    USB connection debugging with GDB is a most wanted addition to GDB, as
    I understand it.

    It is already configured as a JTAG host. The USB connection uses an
    FTDI chip, so drivers are readily available for common OSes. Our ARM
    JTAG debugger is scheduled for Q4/2004 providing that we don't get too
    much additional work.
