Week Seven

This is my seventh week as an intern at Aeste Works. This week was about figuring out which part of my USB CDC ECM code interfaces between the host and device in sending and receiving network packets so that I could integrate the lwIP TCP/IP stack later on. There are Read more…

Week Six

This is week six of my internship at Aeste Works. After configuring the company’s board to enumerate successfully on a Windows environment, it was time to configure it on Linux. On Windows, the usb drivers loads according to the Vendor ID and Product ID which was for Microchip’s USB CDC Read more…

Week Five

This is week five of my internship at Aeste Works. To move forward to what I have to do to implement USB CDC ECM class for ethernet over usb, I’d have to first migrate the USB CDC ACM demo from the PIC32MX which I had been working on last week Read more…

Week Four

This is my fourth week as an Intern at Aeste Works. My main target this week was to configure the PIC32MX microcontroller as a Universal Serial Bus Communications Class Device that utilizes theĀ Ethernet Networking Control Model (ECM) in allowing the exchange of Ethernet-framed data between device and host. The first Read more…

Week Three

This is week three of my internship at Aeste Works. Three main tasks were assigned to me this week. First was to study on the programming & configuration protocols of three different FPGA’s namely Xilinx’s Spartan-6, Intel’s Cyclone and Lattice’s iCE40. Currently, the company’s own board incorporates the Xilinx Spartan Read more…

RNG & Hid_Key

This week I finished the HOTP function which uses MD5 hashing to generate a 6 digit code. The secret key used for the HOTP is generated in a separate function, using the MPLAB X built in TRNG (true random number generator) library. As for the configuration bitstream, it will be Read more…

NAS4Free on the RC111

At our office, we use the Acer RC111 as a Network Attached Storage device. It has been running a Debian installation all this while but we felt the need to upgrade it to a proper NAS OS instead. Comparing between NAS4Free or FreeNAS, we went with the former as it Read more…
