Easy way to use the 1-wire sensors like temperature, voltage and more.
OWFS -- 1-Wire file system. Use the Dallas 1-Wire and iButton chips with standard filesystem commands. Create temperature loggers. Monitor everything. OWHTTPD -- same system, only used as a light weight web server. OWFS is also ported to embedded routers, Mac OSX and Windows. Basically you can use these inexpensive little sensors and other chips with very simple wiring to sense and control the physical environment. The interface is very flexible -- everything from a web browser, to read and writing directly to the chip's "file" to integrating with your programs -- even over the internet. There is a growing number of 1-wire sensors: temperature, voltage, humidity, light, ultraviolet, pressure, thermisters, thermocouples, programmable microcontrollers, relays, lights, LCD panels, etc.

Scientific/engineering firmware repurposing HP business calculators!
This project has created scientific firmware for the HP-20b and HP-30b business calculators. The WP 34S turns either of these calculators into a powerful keystroke programmable scientific device. According to our customers, it's the most powerful and fastest RPN scientific pocket calculator ever built. The WP 34S is alive and stable since 2011. We have succeeded in satisfying the most picky users - read about their experiences on http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/forum-8.html. Find the Owner's Manual v3.2 at https://www.createspace.com/4106229 In 2014, we've updated the WP 34S to version 3.3. Our customers confirm its documentation is excellent and comprehensive (see feedback); an updated printed edition is available from https://www.createspace.com/6329314 since June 2016. We have also produced the WP 31S which is derived from the WP 34S source code. This is an entry-level scientific calculator. Its printed manual is available from https://www.createspace.com/4773370

An Open Source POWERLINK Stack
openPOWERLINK is an Open Source Industrial Ethernet stack for communication in hard real-time. It can be operated as both, Managing Node (master) and Controlled Node (slave). With version 2.0, the source code has been cleanly split into an application-oriented user library and a time-critical stack driver. The latter may be moved to a dedicated communication processor or into a kernel module to deliver enhanced performance while still keeping the API in user space. A full documentation of the stack is available on the web site:
