Scanning Probe Microscopy Controller and Data Visualization Software
GXSM -- Gnome X Scanning Microscopy: A multi-channel image and vector-probe data acquisition and visualization system designed for SPM techniques (STM,AFM..), but also SPA-LEED/LEED/LEEM data analysis. A plug-in interface allows any user add-on data-processing and special hardware and instrument support. Latest: NC-AFM simulation support via math-plugin. Based on several hardware options it supports a commercially available DSP hardware and provided also Open Source Code for all the low level signal processing tasks and instrument controls in a most flexible and adaptable manner. All latest software is available via CVS only or Live Demo/Install CD: http://www.ventiotec.de/linux/GXSM-Linux.iso

Python GUI program to work with Geiger counters like GMC-300/320/500
GeigerLog is a Python based GUI program to work with GQ Electronic's GMC-300 / 320 and now also GMC-500 Geiger counters. Available as "scripts" to run where a proper Python environment exists, or as "bundle", which brings its own Python environment (but currently runs on Linux only). GeigerLog allows reading of Geiger counter data, logging to file, printing to screen and plotting as graph, showing Count Rate vs. Time, both in various, selectable units. The history stored on the Geiger counter's internal memory can be extracted, analyzed and graphed in the same way. The graph is live auto-updated and allows various customization. Time ranges for analysis can be set manually or per left/right mouse click. GeigerLog can control some functions of a connected counter (limited to GMC-3xx counters!). Advanced analysis of the data now permits count rate histograms with Poisson fit for quality control of data, and FFT analysis for any periodic signal hidden within the data.

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.
A project for a highly scalable protocol and framework and a collection of software tools for m2m (machine to machine communication) and IoT Internet of Things.

Service and handler code for a power/reset button
This project includes a spin/wait handler for processing reset/shutdown behavior from a button, configuration files for setting this up as a service, and instructions for placing the files and enabling the service.
Simple graphical usb reset tool
USB resetting is the closest equivalent to physically unplugging and re-plugging a USB device. you might ask , How is that useful ? well the use cases will be different from user to another. In my case, it helps with accessing my slightly damaged old USB external hard drive after a mount in unix-like OSes without any i/o issues. Another one is, loop resetting my USB headset solves some weird glitching sound i constantly have while using them. Those are my special use cases. There most be more, that it can help with.
The Open IPMI project aims to develop an open code base to allow access to platform information using Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI).
Infineon e-bike controller setup tool
XPD (stands for "eXtended Parameter Designer") is an alternative to "KeyWin e-Bike Lab Parameter Designer" software used to program the so-called "Infineon" e-bike controllers. * It provides some additional features missing in the original program, and is generally easier to use. * It is opensource so you can learn how it works and add unique features to it or customize to suit your own needs. * It is cross-platform: works on Linux, Windows and Android.

A keyboard layout that's worth learning.
Qwpr (pronounced "qwipper", named for the first four keys) is a keyboard layout that's easy to learn (only 11 keys move from their qwerty positions), easy to type (32% better by the Carpalx metric), practical (programmer's punctuation, arrow keys, and all major accented characters easily accessed without moving your hands off the three main rows), and very complete (over 1000 unicode characters and combinations available). The project also includes the tools I used to translate this layout from OSX to Windows format; linux tools pending.

Control your Linux PC with a standard foot pedal
This python utility allows users on Linux to control their PC using a foot pedal. The foot pedal becomes an extra mouse or mini keyboard but footcontroller allows you to define multiple pedal sets which you can activate at the click of a button. It uses xdotool to provide you with the ability to assign commands to each pedal. Many foot pedals come with software, often MS Windows only, which allows you to program the pedals to perform some function or other, Footcontroller does away with the proprietary software and allows you to define multiple sets of commands that can be swapped in or out at the click of a button. The advantage is that now, your foot pedal can perform different tasks in multiple situations simply by selecting the appropriate pedal set, rather than having to re-program the foot pedal from scratch.
Allows Linux users to use a standard foot pedal as a mouse
The foot pedal emulates a mouse in conjunction with up to 4 modifier keys, ALT, CONTROL, SHIFT and ESCAPE. Functions available are Left Click, Double Click, Right Click, Cursor Up, Cursor Down, Cursor Left, Cursor Right, Wheel Scroll Up, Wheel Scroll Down, Middle Click, Page Up, Page Down, Window Select, Close window, Minimise window and Null (define an option that does nothing) - Many foot pedals come with software, often MS Windows only, which allows you to program the pedals to perform some function or other, Footmouse does away with the proprietary software and allows you to assign Mouse commands to a pedal or a pedal with a modifier key. All functions can be assigned as you require. Designed principally to help people who have difficulty operating a Mouse but able to operate a foot pedal. By its very nature, moving about the screen is slow compared with using a mouse but it does the job, if you can't use a mouse.
An object-oriented framework for the development of instrument drivers
pyhard2 is an object-oriented framework to help in the development of instrument drivers. pyhard2 is proposed as an alternative to LabVIEW. Emphasis is given on serial drivers but the framework can be used with any socket. The source also contains the implementation of a PID controller and a setpoint ramp generator. The instrument drivers may further be incorporated in a GUI, using, e.g. PyQt or PySide. Threading is automatically taken care of. Furthermore, generic GUI (called controllers) are provided and can be extended.
PyUSB provides USB access on the Python language.
