Are you a Uni student who is interested hardware, FPGAs or embedded programming? You could get paid to hack by applying to the TimVideos.us organisation for Google Summer of Code!

Not a student? You can help us by sharing this post! -- https://hdmi2usb.tv/gsoc/fpga/hardware/python/linux/2017/03/15/gsoc-announcement/

The TimVideos.us project is happy to announce that it is participating in Google Summer of Code 2017 (GSoC2017) and is looking for students to hack on the hardware used to record many open source conferences - including; Linux.conf.au, many PyCons around the world and DebConf!

Due to the focus on hardware, we are very interested in students who are interested in things like FPGAs, VHDL/Verilog and other HDLs, embedded C programming and operating systems and electronic circuit/PCB design!

Some examples of projects that TimVideos.us is looking for students to contribute too are;
* Porting a real operating system such as Linux or NuttX to our System On Chip to allow easier development of new features.
* Porting MicroPython to our FPGA SoC to allow both hardware and firmware be developed in Python together!
* Improving simulation of our SoC using QEmu.
* Improving the debug interface for the soft-CPU cores in our SoC (In collaboration with lowRISC)
* Creation of an open source 4K HDMI output HDL Gearwork Logic / IP Core (In collaboration with apertus)
* Making use of the Ethernet interface for connecting multiple devices together and alternative capture interfaces.
* and many, many more. -- https://github.com/timvideos/getting-started/issues

The TimVideos.us project is happy to announce that it has been selected to participate in the Google Summer of Code for 2016 (https://developers.google.com/open-source/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  (https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/timeline) to apply to work with the TimVideos.us project. The list of proposal ideas (https://github.com/timvideos/getting-started/issues) includes contributing to the HDMI2USB.tv 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. (https://github.com/timvideos/getting-started/issues/5)

 * Porting a real operating system such as Linux (https://github.com/timvideos/getting-started/issues/30) or RTEMS to our SoC (https://m-labs.hk/gateware.html) to allow easier development of new features (https://github.com/timvideos/getting-started/issues/33).

 * Making use of the Ethernet interface for connecting multiple devices together and alternative capture interfaces. (https://github.com/timvideos/getting-started/issues/32)

 * Creating new expansion board and supporting the professional SDI standard. (https://github.com/timvideos/getting-started/issues/2)

 * and many, many more. (https://github.com/timvideos/getting-started/issues)

If you are interested in applying, your first point of call should be our
Google Summer of Code page -- https://code.timvideos.us/summer-of-code/ . 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!

4k video output using an FOSS DisplayPort core and the Numato Opsis!
https://www.crowdsupply.com/numato-lab/opsis/updates/1870

Last weekend, our friend Mike "Hamster" Field from HamsterWorks[1], was successful in demonstrating what we believe is a FOSS world first! As the pictures show, Mike has working on 4k video output (3840×2160p30)[2] via DisplayPort[3] using an open source FPGA core on a Numato Opsis which is open hardware[4].

Mike has been hard at work implementing a fully open source DisplayPort core[5], so we were keen to get him an Numato Opsis board[4] (we shipped him the third board ever made). Currently his implementation is only using 2 of the 4 high speed transceiver lanes on the Opsis but he is working on getting the other two lanes working to effectively double the bandwidth and enabling full 3840×2160p60 (although Mike's monitor doesn't go that high, guess he needs a new one :-). It has been awesome to be working with Mike and getting the Opsis fully supported with his work.

Over the next couple of weeks we should have some cool demos (plus less blurry videos / screenshots!) and code samples[6][7] which show how to make use of this type of functionality as it can be tricky.

The Numato Opsis is currently crowdfunding on CrowdSupply[9] at https://www.crowdsupply.com/numato-lab/opsis

Announcing the Numato Opsis Champion Program
---

With the campaign already over 120%, we know that some of you are super impatient to get your hands on an Opsis board and might be happy to live on the bleeding edge. We have a limited number of “pre-production” boards left over from the prototyping run and rather than having them sit around collecting dust, would like to send them to people who will do cool things with them! Hence we are happy to announce the “Numato Opsis Champion” program.

Order a Numato Opsis board at CrowdSupply.com (https://www.crowdsupply.com/numato-lab/opsis), then tell us about your project and why you can’t wait by filling out this Google Form (https://docs.google.com/a/mithis.com/forms/d/1gt6ZKw6CgtVWSvxZXw4ge9V1E58OUiKtlQLrKHmdLWk/viewform) before *Friday, 2nd October ends AoE*. The form has only 3 short questions for you to fill out! For the best entries, we will ship a pre-production board for free. As these boards are already manufactured, they will ship well before the campaign ends! Winners will of course also receive their ordered production board like every other backer.

We don’t have any set criteria for evaluating the entries but are looking for people who are going to do something awesome or something which helps the community. Anything from helping write sample code, porting existing projects to the board, using the board for event capture or in some type of artwork or performance, to even just plugging the board into everything you can find are all potential winners. We are sure we haven’t even imagined some of the cool things you will come up with.

As you will be receiving a pre-production Opsis, well before our planned shipping date, you need to be prepared to deal with things like incomplete documentation, missing or incomplete tooling and sample code, things which just plain don’t work. Please understand the ride will be bumpier than what people will get when receiving the production boards. These prototyping boards are functional but did require some small manual fix ups to work correctly (which have already been done by us) and are a bit rougher than the final boards.

Look forward to hearing about all the cool things you want to do!

We use MiSoC in our new HDMI2USB firmware at https://github.com/timvideos/HDMI2USB-misoc-firmware
Woah...
"Traditional gateware design with Verilog and VHDL is well known to be tedious and inefficient. M-Labs have developed Migen, a Python-based HDL and toolbox that addresses many of their issues and makes gateware design more productive.

Built on Migen, MiSoC provides a high performance, flexible and lightweight solution to build system-on-chips for various applications."
