  • Why not on other board ?:
    • Hawkboard is a open community platform
    • My contributions will be leveraged by global open community
    • My efforts will be recognized and appreciated by world wide hawk, beagle, OMAP, Davinci communities.
  • Duration: 3 months
  • Expected results:
    • VGA and Composite drivers will be implemented and submitted to davinci mailing list for kernel.org submissions.
    • Wiki page to describe the entire development method here ...
  • Contact: khasim[at]beagleboard[.]org

SIP client demo

  • Title  : SIP client on hawkboard
  • Short project description:
    • Get a SIP client working (linphone), maybe use DSP to off-load audio processing.
      • Use audio, network and DSP.
      • Maybe use video later-on.
  • Why not on other board ?:
    • Have some experience with beagleboard, but hawkboard seems to have more complete interfaces.
    • Cheap platform, DSP.
  • Duration: maybe one to three month, depending on scope (DSP, video).
  • Expected results:
    • Audio and network working.
    • Maybe extend user-interface later-on using VGA, video in.
  • Contact: pmeerw@pmeerw.net
  • Will you support hawkboard.org initiative ? How :
    • Contribute as open source. Provide demonstration image.
  • One thing you like about this platform or initiative:
    • Seems promising given beagleboard's success; visibility.

Hawk Media Server

  • Title  : Hawk Media Server
  • Short project description: This project aims at achieving the following:
    • A media server for homes, that will be a central repository for all media - video/ audio/ pictures and documents
    • Long term goals:

      • A video surveillance application in conjunction with leopard board, where the media server can be used for recording surveillance videos.
  • Why not on other board ?:
    • Hawk has a SATA interface, ideal to interface with internal hard disks.
    • Cheaper than Beagleboard
  • Duration: Three months
  • Expected results:
    • A ready to install image that others can use to configure Hawk as a media server
    • All details shared up on a wiki
  • Contact: sradhakrishna@firstpenugin.org
