Hi! I'm Aki, a Software Engineer
I deal mainly with low-level and systems programming on Unix and Unix-like platforms with a bit of embedded and HDL thrown in the mix. The tools of choice being chiefly
Python for the majority of my work, but I also use
Rust, and the assembly language of choice for the platform as well. In HDL land for FPGAs and the like I mainly use nmigen, but I can also handle Verilog if I must.
I also like to dabble with hardware design, one of my larger projects is lethallink, a PCIe based DMA platform for use in whole-system and stop-the-world debugging. I'm also looking into ASIC tapeout and hope to get on a skywater shuttle if those stick around.
On the side I tend to read a lot of manga and do some hardware and software reverse engineering for fun. The largest of my RE projects is Nox, a collection of FOSS tools to target the Agilent PCIe analyzers. I also keep a bit of a lab notebook/blog with various musings that you can check out, and my equipment list which I try to keep updated with my current lab setup.
