Bosch ST-VS/ETW department 編輯

Forming of ST-VS/ETW 編輯

The ST-VS/ETW department was officially established on September 3, 2007. However, The ST-VS division of Bosch began to recruit for the ETW department in Taipei since May 2007. The employees aboard in July and August 2007 were: Keith Chen (System Architect), Senlin Chen (Hardware Engineer), Alvin Pan (Software Engineer), Clack Lien (Mechanical Engineer) and Bruce Ying (Firmware Engineer), and two new associates joined ETW on September 3, 2007: Michael Fang (Project Manager, left on Sept 7, 2007) and Grifi Huang (Product Manager, officially aboard on Oct. 1, 2007)

The saga of ETW's software team 編輯

Although the focus of ETW's development was set on the hardware components, that include both electrical and mechanical portions, after February 2008, the initial growth of hiring had been in the software team (this team was formally dismissed in August 2009) between September 2007 and January 2008, because Bruce Ying, who was the acting software lead and the primary recruiter of software engineers during that period, was falsely told that the software team would be responsible for developing their own firmware on the basis of the embedded Linux system for ETW's IP cameras.

It had not been clearly stated until January 29, 2008 when Keith Chen, who was the system architect of ST-VS/ETW at that time, led three software/firmware engineers of ST-VS/ETW to visit the Bosch ST-VS department (its department name was abbreviated to STVC before year 2010) in Nuremberg, Germany, that the IP cameras developed by ETW have to run the RTOS firmware which STVC has been developing.

ST-VS/ETW's access to the Linux BSP (or Linux SDK referred to by some SoC makers like Ambarella) was further restricted by Bosch's STVC department in Nuremberg, Germany in June 2008, when Dieter Joecker, the senior product manager of Bosch's ST-VS division at that time, visited ST-VS/ETW in Taipei, Taiwan. Dieter Joecker alleged -- to both ST-VS/ETW and ST-VS's head office in Eindhoven, Netherlands, as well as the SoC maker whose video encoding chip was adopted by ST-VS for the Bosch IP video encoders to be developed from 2008 to 2010 -- that STVC is the only department in Bosch ST-VS to have direct technical contact with that SoC maker.

In spite of the difficulty in getting timely support for the Linux BSP/SDK from the SoC maker, ST-VS/ETW had striven to verify the hardware designs by using embedded Linux until March 2009. However, in the mean time the software engineers of ETW were told to shift their efforts from firmware development to software and firmware testing. Finally in August 2009, the software team was dismissed within the ETW organization.

  • Steps to set up a ULA (Unique Local Address) for a network interface on a PC running Windows XP with SP2/SP3:
 1. Click Start/Run and enter 'cmd' in the command box;
 2. Enter below command lines:
    ipv6 install
    netsh interface ipv6 add address interface=NN address=fc00::1234:5678 unicast
    (NN is the name of the network interface of the PC for connection to the
     camera under test; 
     the last 8 hex digits of the IPv6 may be arbitrarily chosen.)
