Designing a Business Card that Runs DOOM - Exploring Low-Cost ARM Architecture - Ethan Sayre, Plano East High School
This talk discusses the exciting world of low-cost ARM processors and PCB design. How does one stand out in job interviews and networking events? By giving out business cards that run DOOM, of course! Ethan became interested in Embedded Systems after reading a blog post by George Hilliard, in which he describes the design and implementation processes of running Linux on a business card. This talk builds upon this idea, by explaining how anyone can build these barebones devices for themselves. In this talk, you'll learn about the criteria in selecting low-cost (

Ready to Switch to Open Hardware GNU/Linux PowerPC Laptop? - Roberto Innocenti, Not Profit Power Progress Community
Why today is possible to switch to a Open Hardware GNU/Linux PowerPC Laptop? As not profit association based only on volunteers I share the steps of our experience on design the eletrical schematics and the PCB of the Open Hardware PowerPC Notebook. Why we have choose the CERN Source Hardware License, and why we are ready for the OSHWA Certification process. How we have solved the problem to have the body of the laptop even for a small production in a non standardized and non-modular world of Notebook Chassis. Why thanks to FOSS its possible ( but not necessary simple) to have an OS and applications run in a today less Common Architecture in Consumer market, like Power Architecture ( PPC64) Big Endian. Good practice of writing open source codes not Endian Dependent its important to run GNU/Linux applications on every CPU Architecture. Our experience finding code written only for little-endian that we need that run on big-endian CPU.
