subinpthomas: Beginner in VxWorks Driver Development

I am a beginner in VxWorks and I am trying to implement a driver for the D-Link Fast Ethernet Card DFE 530TX which uses the VT86C100A chip as part of my Academic Career. I couldn't find any helpful information on this yet. Can anyone give me some help?

icis_machine: She's Geeky: A women in technology (un)conference

Friday January 30, 2009 - Saturday January 31, 2009 from 8:00am - 5:00pm
Computer History Museum
1401 N Shoreline Blvd.
Mountain View, California 94043 Get Directions
Please also see our website www.shesgeeky.org

She’s Geeky is a neutral, face-to-face forum for women who like to geek out about all kinds of things: computers, science, math, design, robotics, web 2.0, .etc.

The purpose is to bring women from a diversity of technical sectors together to:

1. Connect women in technology, computing, entrepreneurship, funding, hardware, open source, nonprofit and any other technical or "geeky" field.
2. Connect the generations of women working in or interested in technology, from those in middle school to the pioneers of the industry in their 70's.
3. Provide a forum for discussion of issues affecting women in technical fields.
4. Support the exchange of skills and learning among women in different technical fields.

We are actually not a women in technology organization rather we work with and promote existing ones including The Anita Borg Institute, DevChix, LinuxChix, Digital Sista's Women who Tech among others.

The unconference format is unique. Kaliya Hamlin, IdentityWoman.net, founder of She's Geeky and the facilitator for this event, has designed and facilitated over 60 "unconferences" and will guide the whole group through the process. Beginning at 9 AM each day, we start with a blank wall and, in less than an hour, through a highly participative process, create a full day, multi-track conference agenda that is relevant and inspiring to everyone there.

When you come to She’s Geeky, you benefit from the opportunity to:

1. Build relationships and even partnerships across disciplines.
2. Learn something new from other geeky women.
3. Find answers to the questions that matter to you.
4. Consider business issues related to the technology industry.
5. Be exposed to new ideas for making and keeping technology relevant.

You can find the list of topics that women have proposed here.

We hope you will consider joining us in creating a fabulous She’s Geeky!

icis_machine: Tools to help you look more professional

I was tired of doing timing diagrams by hand, so I found this piece of SW.

I have also used this for graphing functions and comparing files/folder/etc...

What other tools have you found that are useful in your work, especially if they are free or near free?

lesh11: Fuel injection control

Does anyone here have knowledge about fuel injection.
I have a project and would like to know some things like injector pulse width timing and resolution.
Also if anyone knows of any other online resources for that type of information, let me know.

Here is some more on my cry for help unusual fascination with small display devices - a teardown of a cheap, undocumented LCD to figure out how to make it work, and document it for everyone else out there on teh internets who wants to use this display in some project. If nothing else, it features some pretty pictures of a colorful semiconductor die under glass, taken with Kick @ss Camera macro focus.

katerinka_l: NV cache feature

Hi to all!

I have some question regarding NV cache feature, which was recently added to ATA-8 and SATA protocols. Motivation for this was Windows Vista. Already exist hybrid HDDs, which support this feature.
My question is what is a trigger for sending NV cache commands from host to device?
From what I saw via analyzer, when Vista is coming up, host sends remove LBAs command for all the LBAs in NV cache pinned set, and then add LBAs command of 1 sector data, where all the data are zeros.

Please, help.
Thanks in advance
