Linux and Open Source Software Engineer

I’m (The) Kieran Bingham.

A software engineer with an interest (perhaps lets call this a bias) towards Linux and Open Source software, and I have been working on consumer grade products in the industry for more than 8 years professionally.

I like to think of myself as an “Embedded Software Engineer” as I really like to have my hands on a dev-board of some sort. ( That way you can see the lights flash :D )

I’ve worked on ARM, SH, and MIPS architectures, creating BSPs and device drivers for customers through the services company MPC-Data (since purchased by BSquare).

For the past 3 years, I have worked directly for ST Microelectronics in the R+D office here in Bristol.

I have in depth knowledge of the HAVANA and ST SDK2 development suites, and in particular the Streaming Engine, and Player2 framework. It was here that I wrote the Encoder framework inside the Streaming Engine to provide encode and transcode capabilities for our Set Top Box software stack.
