The objective of this project is to develop a piece of client software to work with out Atmel AVR32 (AP7000) Linux based hardware that communicates to a server via TCP/IP.
We have the foundations of the program already built, using directFB(With an XML frontend) for the GUI, and basic commands already in place, source code will be provided upon request.
The Hardware utilizes the following components that interact with each other:
Colour LCD Touch Screen, COM/Serial Port, Ethernet/Network Port, Atmel AP7000 Processor, Omron magnetic card reader(Serial/RS232).
Sample code is provided as a starting point for functionality, which includes everything needed to complete functionality of the project. The sample code does some of the key tasks specified in this project ( i.e. read card data, read the serial port, display images/movies etc) so developing the final project should be trouble free.
Experience with directfb and AVR32 Linux development however is a must.
Please note also, you won't have hardware to test on, if you have your own AVR32 kit it will be beneficial however we are expecting due to the nature of the project a bit of self testing and providing feedback accordingly. With that said the project should be straight forward enough to be able to primarily debug on the development system.
Specific project requirements are attached.
