Howdy!

Postby Bianco » Sat Dec 12, 2009 4:29 pm

Hello,

I'm Bianco, a 22 year old computer engineering student from the Netherlands.
My formerly username on Xlinkers was Sphere. I consider myself as 75% software developer and 25% hardware developer (only digital though, analog is scary).

I'm currently working on some code to interface the XMOS processor with the FTDI Vinculum chip. I've rarely seen such a bad product on the market. The firmware contains bugs, the documentation lacks detail en contains bugs. There is no sillicon errata, it is problably not possible to find bugs in the sillicon due to the above reasons anyway ;). This is a big contrast compared to their USB->UART en USB->FIFO chips which are the best in their class and extentively used by XMOS.

If everything goes according plan i'll be residing at the XMOS HQ for a few months doing an internship!

Welcome!

As I may have said somewhere else, it is good to see more software devs having a go at this type of thing. My background is Computer Science.

Great to hear about the internship! Hopefully will see you around the office! When are you due to start?
