Mikrochip objavio da je spreman da da 1000dol onome ko prvi razvije open source tcpip ili usb stack za pic 32 mikrokontrolere tj za arduino clon chipkit32.
pazite ljudi soma dolara nije malo, a verujem da ovde ima gomila studenata/znanaca kojima je ovo u domenu mogucnosti, realno isplati se. malo upozorenje USB je vec napravio pre par meseci tim is dangerus Prototipa tako da je to verovatno nemoguca misija, ali koliko mi je poznato niko jos nije ni poceo da radi na TCP IP stacku
Contest rules and legal mumbo jumbo:
· Each stack will receive a bounty of $1000 for the contributor who comes in with the best workable solution. We mean $1000 in your pocket, so we will gross up to cover your taxes!
· We will take the 1st 5 working solutions for the USB and the 1st 5 working solutions for the TCP /IP stack based on the criteria below. One winner will be chosen for each stack. Please submit to ChipKit.Contest@microchip.com and we will judge with Digilent which one is the best of the 5 that we see.
· Criterion for Ethernet Stack:
A port of an existing open-source Ethernet stack (e.g. Contiki) for the chipKIT Max32 with the following requirements:
o Functionality with the current chipKIT Ethernet Library
§ i.e. Can run current examples
§ DHCP and DNS must be supported
o All device specific code must be restricted to a single source file.
· Criterion for USB Stack:
A port of the LUFA or other existing stack to the chipKIT MAX32 with the following requirements:
o All demos/class driver work without any API changes
o Examples must pass the USB Chapter 9 command verification program
o All device specific code must be restricted to a single source file
o This will imply device support only at this time
o USB Device Examples must work with current examples.
§ Although identical classes are not needed, sketches must function with the existing PC side code and LED behavior must be the same.
· In the event of a tie, ROM, RAM and Interrupt optimization techniques will be used to determine a winner.
· Winning submission for each stack will be posted to github taking advantage of features such as issue tracking. We expect that the winning developer will assist with reference resources to be created and added to the www.chipkit.cc/wiki. A stack specific section will be created on the www.chipkit.cc/forum to ensure end-user support.
· Send your submission to ChipKit.Contest@microchip.com. Your submission must be your own development and may be based on existing open source software (as defined by www.opensource.org ). All portions of your submission must be subject to a valid OSI-approved license. Void where prohibited by law. Winner agrees to take possession of the prize in the manner directed by Microchip and to promptly provide information and documents requested by Microchip for tax and eligibility purposes.
