Hacking the Raspberry Pi’s VideoCore IV GPU for Fun, but Definitely Not for Profit (7:00-7:30 PM)

Let’s delve into the murky, semi-open-source guts of the Pi’s GPU! We’ll explore its architecture, check out some sweet hacks and reverse-engineering efforts, and live-code a bare-metal QPU app in assembly. Whether you’re on a mission for open hardware or just morbidly curious, come for a discussion of why anyone would spend their time digging into a closed firmware blob, as well as some speculation about the future of low-power hardware accelerators like the VideoCore.

Louis Howe is an embedded software consultant, architecture enthusiast/Turing machinist, and new Portland transplant.
