Python is generally considered a high level language a long way from hardware, this very fact actually makes it an awesome tool for helping out with the design and creation of hardware!
This talk will hopefully cover;
- Python hardware description languages (HDLs) for creating "gateware" for FPGA chips or even real IC design.
- Python scripting for hardware schematic layout and design rule checking.
- Python tools for deploying, programming and debugging embedded systems.
- Some cool projects like the HDMI2USB.tv (open source hardware for video capture) which use many of the above parts.
This talk will focus on open source tools.
