Online Interview with RVspace Open Source Award 2021 – 2022 Winner Kamil Kubacki



The RVspace Open Source Award Winner Kamil Kubacki has successfully ported NVDLA driver to Linux 5.15. Kamil is an energetic open source developer. In the year 2021, he got chance to work with the pre-production version of BeagleV board, and have chosen to port the NVDLA to a newer version of the kernel.

The nice thing is that there is also an option for customizations or modifications.“ Recently, he will go deep to the audio and video processing pipeline of RISC-V boards. For example, creating a streaming device which converts A/V input (from camera or DVB-T device) to one of the adaptive streaming technologies like HLS. He thinks that for open-source hardware and software, one of the most important things is to open clear documentation for devices and components.
