Hacker Spaces


FPGA Workshop 4: Behind the Scenes (November 8)

DESCRIPTION In the previous workshops, we have seen that FPGAs can emulate any logic circuit without moving (mechanical) parts. FPGAs are however not magic nor mystical devices and this workshop will shed light on how they work internally. After theoretical explanations on their functioning, we will program them very close to the “bare silicon” by configuring manually each logic element on the chip, without any Verilog or schematics. This will

FPGA Workshop #3: Computer Architecture, August 29th

Computer architecture is the science and art of selecting and interconnecting hardware components to create computers that meet functional, performance and cost goals (Wikipedia). With the invasion of digital devices during the last decade (cellphones, wireless routers, digital TV…), it has become more than ever ubiquitous. However, it is still a poorly known subject for most people. Even among the self-proclaimed hardware hacking community, most fanatics of the Arduino development

Distributed Crypto SAT Solving workshop, Sept 10th

In this workshop led by Mate Soos (PhD in INRIA Rhone-Alpes) we will take a distributed SAT solver design that works similar to SETI@Home and hack it until it works faster, gives better results. The results will be public and the solver downloadable, along with the server to enable anyone to crack much-hyped but useless crypto-systems using collaborative effort. SAT solvers are mathematical tools that solve problems given in the

OpenWrt Workshop

Samedi 4 avril 2009 au /tmp/lab, de 14h30 à 20h30. Voici les différents points qui seront abordés : Sur OpenWrt : de comprendre la structure générale d’OpenWrt ; de construire votre propre image du firmware pour votre cible matérielle ; de porter un logiciel de votre choix et de le tester ; de le flasher depuis le firmware original ou depuis une ancienne version d’OpenWrt. Sur le Wi-Fi : de faire

Workshop FPGA : la suite

Merci à tous d’être venus si nombreux au premier workshop 🙂 Pour la suite, un deuxième workshop se tiendra au lab le samedi 28 mars de 9h à 15h30. Au programme : – Utilisation des outils en ligne de commande – Introduction à Verilog – Hands-on: à peu près les memes + réalisation d’un petit synthétiseur audio. S’il reste du temps : – Simulation – Survol de VHDL Pour plus

/tmp/lab @ wintercamp, Amsterdam, NL

This week is the wintercamp, and a few members of /tmp/lab and Art Sensitif are going there, along with Jaromil for Dyne, meeting 160 participants for a networked experience in order to create, cross-breed and develop what the collectives are doing. Very different than the traditionnal approach to CodeCamps or Hack Conference, wintercamp is organized by some great dutch organization giving it a very different flavor, at least in the

BattleWirelessMesh2009 – April 11-12 @ TmpLab – Sponsors Update

SPONSORS updates The TmpLab is pleased to announce the support of two first sponsors for the BattleWirelessMesh to help this event to be the one occasion a have a real case mesh test-bed. Wireless-fr (http://wireless-fr.org)  will be providing 8 nodes (Buffalo) FON (http://fon.com) will be providing 25 nodes (WRT54G) We are still looking for more supports from the community and from the vendors to complete our architecture. DEVELOPERS updates Already

Workshop introduction aux FPGA Samedi 21 Mars 14h30-23h30

Venez vous initier à l’utilisation et à la programmation de FPGA le samedi 21 mars au /tmp/lab. Les débutant(e)s sont les bienvenu(e)s, y compris les gens qui ne savent pas ce qu’est un FPGA.

First TMPLAB Wireless Battle Mesh – April 11-12th 2009 @ tmplab

We are pleased to announce that the /tmp/lab  will be organizing a Spring Wireless OpenWRT Mesh Contest called “Wireless Battle Mesh” during 2 days (April 11-12th) with the goal of building 3 wireless mesh networks based on embedded hardware running OpenWRT and different concurrent mesh routing protocols. The targeted architecture will be 3 networks of 25nodes + 1 wireless managment networks (10-20 nodes) to achieve realistic size of nodes number,

First OneDayBlast at /tmp/lab on SS7

We will be doing a Signal System 7 workshop this thursday at the Lab, so if you are interested, come there ! See the outline below. It will be taking place as a One Day Blast : a free day during which you can promote your own project and/or participate to any ongoing project. It is free, free of charge and anyone can come !
