* Embedded Systems Development of a DSL Modem/Router
Systems development using Redhat 7.3 on an Intel StrongARM processor. Development of embedded (client) portion of the SNMP based ILMI protocol. (See Intel below)
* Embedded Wireless Applications on Stargate (Intel PXA255 XScale (ARM))
Redhat 9 applications development on Intel Stargate processor for remote sensor (mote) network. Sensor mote communication via Zigbee protocol. Zigbee is IEEE 802.15.4 standard.
* GUI Debugger for Embedded SIMD parallel multiprocessor
GUI debugger for minimal debug core resident in programming in SIMD parallel processor. Interface allowed a breakpoint and examination/setting of memories and registers.
Client / Server Software
Network Protocols / SNMP
* Auto-configuration Protocols for DSL Modems
Eliminated need for DSLAM during initial development of embedded (client) portion of ILMI protocol through implementation of Interface Management Entity (IME) server portion of Integrated Local Management Interface (ILMI) protocol (af-ilmi-0065). Server IME enabled testing and development of Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) half of ILMI protocol over TCP-IP vs ATM.
Remote Debugging /Multiple GUI's
* Remote GUI Debugger Design and Development
Developed and maintained two remote GUI debuggers for CNAPS/NT device architecture. GUIs used were MFC and Visix. Enabled debug of routines in SIMD parallel multi-processor accelerator for signal, image, forms processing, and neural nets.
* X11 server on Windows.
X11-AT server, which was one of the first X-servers available under windows. Created Windows to X11 font converter to support X-server. Windows 3.1 implementation was especially challenging.
Compilers / Interpreters / Run Time
* Commercialized C Compiler
Commercialized C compiler and runtime for the AMOS operating system in spite of absence of memory map and required generation of relocateable and reentrant code. Stabilized, improved error recovery, and optimized code output by 27%, execution by 39%.
* Ported Compiler and Interpreters to New Operating Systems and Processors
Successfully ported 2 COBOL, 1 Pascal compiler/interpreters to new operating systems and processors. Maintained BASIC compiler / interpreters on several differing operating systems.
* Supported BASIC Compiler/Interpreters on 3 Differing OS's and Processors
Supported BASIC on MAI Basic Four OS, Point 4 IRIS OS and AlphaMicro AMOS OS
OS / Kernel / Drivers / File Systems
* File Systems
Existing IRIS operating system file system file size was maxed out for many applications. Designed and implemented new ISAM file system that required spanning spindles, key balancing and implementation in limited size system assembler overlays.
* Device Drivers
Designed and wrote device drivers for both serial & DMA devices, some with extended diagnostic capabilities.
* Authored Configuration and Installation Scripts
Generated configuration and installation scripts for both drivers and entire subsystems.
* Microcode for a System Bootstrap and Loader
Wrote Basic 4 encrypted system bootstrap/loader microcode for security from reverse engineering
* Voice Messaging and Time Tracking (Telephony)
Automated time tracking data collection with voice messaging. Streamlined the payroll in a nation-wide system for Coca Cola Enterprises Inc. Data routed to company's AS400 payroll system generating subsequent cost savings. Messaging and system reports supported better management of field personnel.
* Call Queuing Application (Telephony)
Dropped source code line count 50% to ~65,000 lines of a extremely bloated phone call queue application. 80% reduction in Oracle DB space utilization cutting needed tech support by over half.
* Direct Readout Gauging System.
Real-time thickness gage software for measuring thickness of continuous coating in mill. Gage provided "immediate" and continuing thickness readouts for the coating operator allowing coating thickness to be set at just over specifications. Significant cost savings in coating materials since previously coatings were typically run at 150%-200% of specification.
* Assemblers, Linkers and Debuggers
Developed / supported multiple assemblers, linkers and debuggers under Unix, NT and proprietary OS's. Debugger development for SIMD parallel processor.
