DrDAQ-SIMPL Framework

Welcome to the home of the DrDAQ-SIMPL Framework project: a subproject of OPNDRS.

Please feel free to visit the  opndrs project on Sourceforge.net also.
2012Apr24 Some research into Windows based USB Sniffers.
2012Apr20 We are underway with the initial design discussions.

Our mission

We intend to build a framework for the DrDAQ device using the SIMPL project softwareICs components and the libusb-1.0 library. This framework could be used to wrap all the DrDAQ software calls into a SIMPL Send/Receive/Reply package.

The intent is wherever possible to divide our application into:

The framework portions will be the common code and will be licenced under the LGPL licence.

The plugin portions will encapsulate the sensor specific code and will have no obligatory licence requirements.

What have we done thus far?

The change log for the current released version is here.

The vision statement for the first milestone release is here.

This project makes heavy use of the LGPL'd  SIMPL toolset.

The current system picture for this project is presented below.


How do I get involved?

Certainly we encourage you to download the source and play with it (and you are completely free to use it in your projects and products).

Contact and use our mailing list.

As it is with any Open Source project,  the DrDAQ-SIMPL project can only grow and prosper if the people using the code give something back in return.

If you are an experienced LINUX developer or kernel hacker we certainly could use your contributions.

Our code is written with the KISS philosphy in mind. As such even a novice C programmer could study and understand the code. So even if you are just starting out as a LINUX developer your contribution to this effort is welcome. We will make every reasonable effort to help you get going and support you along the way.

What sort of things are being worked on (or need to be done)?

As with any Open Source project, our success ultimately depends on the participation rate of its volunteer developers. We encourage you to get involved and help grow the code base in new and different directions. There is ample work for developers of all skill levels from new C programmers to seasoned veterans.

This project is being coordinated by iCanProgram Inc.
