Embedded Sparks 2010 Summer update

Also for this contest edition I had not enough free time during the summer to develop the second round device. I just started to build and test some software module prototypes, in order to validate the designed architecture and verify that the Spark Kit performances were enough to support my idea. Sadly and unfortunately, the hardware seemed not enough powerful to handle both DVB-T TV decoding (via an external Avermedia USB DVB-T receiver) and rich WPF graphics, so I decided to stop the development.

Here there are some photos I took while assembling the device:


Now the contest has entered its final round and the three finalists have been announced earlier this week. Good luck to everyone!
