Great Cow BASIC is an open-source BASIC compiler for 8 bit Microchip PIC and Atmel AVR microcontrollers. Also included in the project is Great Cow Graphical BASIC, an icon based editor for GCBASIC programs. The latest release is September 2017. We are even closer to v1.00 release!! Please see the download section for your options. We have a Graphical IDE and textual IDE, we have just the compiler and we have a minimal install - it is your choice. Please see the homepage here: http://gcbasic.sourceforge.net and also see http://gcbasic.sourceforge.net/download.html for other Great Cow Basic download options.
Simple and intuitive 2D vector drawing for electronics and not only.
A multiplatform vector drawing program with a complete library of electronic symbols. Schematics and drawings are stored in a very compact text format. There is no netlist concept behind the drawings (so no simulation, and this is a choice) but this allows a great graphical flexibility and ease of use, making FidoCadJ the perfect tool for exchange sketches in forum and newsgroup discussions with a few clicks. Drawings can be exported in several graphic formats, such as pdf. Follow the development live on Twitter: https://twitter.com/davbucci
Client software for users of the Automatic Packet Reporting System amateur radio network.
Amide's a Medical Image Data Examiner: Amide is a tool for viewing, registering, and analyzing anatomical and functional volumetric medical imaging data sets.
Modular CNC software for Arduino controller
The goal of the project is the realization of a modular firmware that allows to control a CNC machine with different utensils. For instance, a CNC with a drill, with few changes can become a plotter with a pen or cutting machine to cut cardboard or stickers. In order to do that, we want project a CNC router with a mechanism that allows a fast utensil change and a controlling firmware which can use different utensils changing some configuration parameters.
GridLAB-D is a new power system simulation tool that provides valuable information to users who design and operate electric power transmission and distribution systems, and to utilities that wish to take advantage of the latest smart grid technology. It incorporates advanced modeling techniques with high-performance algorithms to deliver the latest in end-use load modeling technology integrated with three-phase unbalanced power flow, and retail market systems. Historically, the inability to effectively model and evaluate smart grid technologies has been a barrier to adoption; GridLAB-D is designed to address this problem. User documentation can be found at: http://gridlab-d.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Quick_links The source code is available from GitHub. See https://github.com/gridlab-d/gridlab-d. Issue tracking is handled by GitHub. See https://github.com/gridlab-d/gridlab-d/issues.
Open Source CFD Toolbox
The foam-extend project is a fork of the OpenFOAM® open source library for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The goal of this project is to integrate community contributions to the foam-extend CFD simulation toolbox. It is an open project welcoming and integrating contributions from all users and developers.
