 '''Mentors:''' Past, Present, and Potential Mentors

 '''Students:''' Past, Present, and Potential Students

 '''Status:''' Never-ending.

 '''Introduction:''' RTEMS can always use more BSPs for simulators.

 '''WARNING:''' Please ask for detailed information on the particular
 BSP/simulator combination you are interested in.  There are lots of
 combinations available and the status changes frequently.

 See the [wiki:Open_Projects#Automated_GNU_Tools_Testing  GNU Tools
 Testing] project for information on which targets need simulator BSPs to
 aid in tool testing.

 There are a variety of potential projects listed on the [wiki:Emulator
 Emulator] and [wiki:Developer/Simulators/SkyEye SkyEye] pages.  Some of
 these involve addressing issues in the simulator itself.  Others involve
 developing BSPs for specific simulators. This is an important area of work
 since any target that can be tested easily and in an automated fashion on
 a simulator is always in better shape.  Here is a list of BSPs on
 simulators that are currently thought to be of high interest because they
 would add significantly to our testing infrastructure:

  *  a BSP for the ARM Beagle Board as simulated by QEMU (cheap board)
  *  a BSP for a QEMU SuperH target
  *  a BSP for a QEMU Coldfire target
   *  uc5282 support exists but needs to be merged into QEMU main source
   *  make a mc5206 configuration work with our BSP
  *  a BSP for [wiki:Developer/Simulators/SkyEye SkyEye] edp9312 target
 configured to match the < USD200 Olimex board.

 The [http://gavare.se/gxemul/GXEmul SkyEye] project emulates a number of
 ARM-, PPC-, MIPS-, and SH4- based platforms, including
 "test-machines" SkyEye] which may be good targets for RTEMS.

 Where available please include support for networking and graphics.  The
 RTEMS Project uses simulators for automated testing as well as for manual
 testing of features like graphics and network application behavior.  Full
 featured simulator BSPs make this much easier.  It also provides more BSPs
 which anyone on the project has access to free with no need for special
 hardware to be purchased.

 [wiki:TBR/User/JoelSherrill JoelSherrill] hopes someone will tackle RTEMS
 support for the ARM A8 and A9 CPU models and the edp9312 as supported by
 [wiki:Developer/Simulators/SkyEye SkyEye].  This would benefit RTEMS
 testing a lot.

 '''Goal:''' Concise statement of the overall goal of the project. Refine
 this initial statement to include: project deliverables (code, docs,
 testing), required/suggested methodology, standards of quality, possible
 goal extensions beyond the main objective.

 '''Requirements:''' List the requirements and level of expertise you
 estimate are required by the developer tackling this project will have to
 have: Required level of programming language(s), specific areas of RTEMS
 or tools, level of familiarity with RTEMS, cross-development, GNU/Linux,
 etx., development/documentation/testing tools, mathematical/algorithmic
 background, other desirable skills.

 '''Resources:''' Current RTEMS developers, papers, etc that may help you
 in this project.

 = Miscellaneous Sections =

 As the project progresses, you will need to add build instructions, etc
 and this page will evolve from a project description into a HOWTO.

 = References =
  *  TBD

 '''Other sections:''' If you have more to say about the project that
 doesn't fit in the proposed sections of this template, feel free to add
 other sections at will.
