Extend the Xilinx branch of QEMU to support AXIOM Beta hardware and setup in a way which allows to run and test the existing Kernel and Userspace without AXIOM Beta hardware.

Goals:

  • Boot unmodified Beta firmware image (Arch Linux with a custom kernel)
  • Emulate the hardware devices required for initialization
  • Emulate image capture (memory mapping)
  • Emulate HDMI output(s) (memory mapping)
  • Emulate some sort of user interface?
  • Other hardware devices worth emulating?

Prerequisites:

  • C and ARM assembler
  • Ability to modify QEMU (large C codebase, but pretty well organized)

Difficulty: Hard
