RTEMS Workout at FOSS.IN

This is the standard workout proposal template provided by the FOSS.IN team.


Aanjhan Ranganathan and Santosh G. Vattam.

Aanjhan Ranganathan is a Masters Student at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne(EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland. He worked on RTEMS as part of Google Summer of Code 2009. His project was MMU Support for RTEMS and he was mentored by Thomas Doerfler. He has been a part of FOSS.IN since 2005 and presented a talk at FOSS.IN last year as well.

Santosh G. Vattam worked on RTEMS Testing as part of Google Summer of Code 2009. His project was Coverage Analysis for RTEMS and he was mentored by Joel Sherrill. He has been a part of FOSS.IN since 2008.




Languages, tools to be known

Programming Language: C

For coverage runs, someone should have m68k/uC5282 or i386/pc386.

For testing purposes, it is easier to debug on sparc/sis. But everyone could use the same target and run their own coverage reports.

You just need to settle on what is easiest and fastest.

Getting and compiling the code

Read Access to RTEMS CVS Repository? ? GSoC Hello instructions might be good ?

Links to overall design/architecture

Pre-event planning

Can document this here and/or add some links to Bugzilla, ML threads, other wiki pages


  • Improving code coverage on sparc BSPs with libcsupport included.
  • Some basic UI stuff - E.g.: Some improvements to Roxana's work.
  • Clean ups and documentation.
  • Maybe writing a device driver.
  • Writing a UI in python for Coverage analysis.
