  • Ticket #650 – Description

    v2 v3  
    33 Details::
    44  !RouterBoard RB435G is an extensible board that can serve as a single-board router and be a central part of your home network. It features MIPS single-core CPU, 256MB of RAM, micro-SD card slot and 3 ethernet ports. The machine is well documented and can be used as a model hardware for the network usability of HelenOS. Basic support for RB435G is within the reach of a single trimester work.
     5
     6  HelenOS supports the mips32 architecture, but so far has been ported only to MIPS R4000 and MIPS 4Kc CPUs. The !RouterBoard has a MIPS 24K processor so this project will require some kernel code modifications.

    68 What Gains and Benefits will this bring?::
     
    1113
    1214 Required skills::
    13   A successful applicant will need to have very good skills in programming in the C language and the ability to learn how to drive hardware based on various information sources (official documentation, source code of other operating system projects).
     15  A successful applicant will need to have very good skills in programming in the C language and the ability to learn how to drive hardware based on various information sources (official documentation, source code of other operating system projects). Low-level kernel programming experience is a plus.
