Projects


  • IO daughter card for a DSK6713 evaluation board to a host PC over a native high speed USB link (2010).
    Built a daughter board to create a high speed USB 2.0 link between the PC and the evaluation board to offload DSP intensive calculations to the development board and to use the data acquisition capabilities of the development board to capture and send data to the PC. All of these were done using LabView and DSPBIOS.
  • Interfaced Garmin USB GPS receiver in LabView (2009)
    Developed a dll library to read GPS data from a Garmin USB GPS Receiver and a LabView Wrapper around the DLL to bring in and display structured GPS Data into LabView in a beautiful VI.
  • Findmaan
    Developed a Web Crawler and indexing system based on PHP & MySQL with context based advertising for web pages, documents and music. (2002)
  • Dynamic DNS Update System (2012, 2013)
    Developed a dynamic DNS update system using Apache, PHP, named and bash scripts to periodically update IP addresses of hosts. Also implemented a memory based file system to minimize disk IO per update with write to disk fallback and a salted cryptographic scheme to prevent unauthorized updates and replay attacks.
  • RAW to Bitmap Batch Convertor (2014)
    Developed a multithreaded Camera RAW to bitmap converter using libRAW library and extract EXIF in a separate CSV file.
