A cross-platform library that gives apps easy access to USB devices
Library to enable user space application programs to communicate with USB devices
Disk Inspection and Monitoring
smartmontools contains utility programs (smartctl, smartd) to control/monitor storage systems using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology System (S.M.A.R.T.) built into most modern ATA and SCSI disks. It is derived from smartsuite.
Open Source Solid Modeling CAD
BRL-CAD is a powerful cross-platform constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing for rendering & geometric analyses, network distributed framebuffer support, image & signal-processing tools.
System Stability Tester is a multi platform open source clone of SuperPI and comes with a GUI and a CLI. It can be used for CPU and RAM burning, stressing and benchmarking.
Wintel based platform system power management and analysis utilities.
Server benchmark and burn in software.
Server Benchmark [s.b] allows server engineers and administrators to quickly complete the "burn in" phase of your server and VDI provisioning process. The software also allows users to benchmark processing and memory utilization by dynamically adding threads and building arrays to test memory capacity. Server Benchmark is also a great way to maximize capacity and test response from within your existing Citrix XenApp farm, and VDI infrastructure. Source code is attached to the "Source" folder.
uLan is message oriented multi-master communication protocol for microcontrollers. It uses 9-bit character format for addressing and link control and RS-485 physical layer. More RS-485 cards, converters for PC RS-232 ports and embedded MCUs are supported
Identify electronic resistor values
This HTML utility allows the user to select standard color codes or surface mount numbers, then it identifies the resistor value. There is no need to memorize color codes or multipliers. An online working example of this program can be used at ZoomAviation.com/programs.
50 most common transistor specs
The specifications and information for the 50 most common transistors used in small electronic circuits, robots, and prototyping.
KAR Energy Software is the software which drastically reduces the power consumption of your computer, laptop or server until 48% in 4 different ways: *By reducing the consumption of RAM *CPU cooling (electronic) *By reducing the frequency of the processor (has nothing to do with the CPU cooling) *By putting the computer into standby (still putting the PC to sleep when a program prevents it)
Disk Geometry for Windows
get a report of a list of physical disk numbers' disk geometries: - tracks - heads - cylinders - sectors per track - sector size - total number of sectors - disk size in SI units - total number of bytes runs on WINE if you fix the launcher string and use double quotes around the last string and replace all the backspash spaces with spaces. WINE in mint 10.x has a conversion bug.
The dynax driver framework provides common C++ driver and device classes for platform independent kernel driver development. The framework is based on interface implementations for KMDF (Windows), IOKit (OSX) and Linux (planned).
