5 Architektur und Programmierung Inhaltsverzeichnis (Inhaltsverzeichnis) (Sprachauswahl)

TitanNit is currently coded by a group of talented developers from the AAF digital Forums and is released for several different Receiver models and brands/reseller models.

This section explains the architecture and programming imformation that titannit is engineered on and information of the dev team and its helpers in the present and in the past.

5.1 Architecture (Inhaltsverzeichnis) (Sprachauswahl)

Currently the only supported architecture is the Super-H (sh4), The chipset is a biendian 32bit RISC chipset originally developed for multimedia devices, gaming consoles and set top boxes and was used in the Sega's Dreamcast. it has proved popular because of its low cost and high performance and has found use in many low power embedded devices because of it low power consumption.

Titannit is linux based and is based on ST micro electronics opensource linux project made for the Super-H chipset called (STLinux).

The sh4 chipset has been popular with the satellite community because of the quality of the display output and the open source nature of the linux system that runs on it, since its introduction has had many third party firmwares developed for it from different development teams.

TitanNit is Team AAF's sucessor to the AAF enigma 2 based firmware, aaf enigma is currently not developed and support has ended. To further develop TitanNit we recommend that if current AAF Enigma users update to TitanNit for future support.

Note: There is a possibility that development may spread to other Receiver models and other architectures such as the Broadcom MIPS architecture. Future development to support more Receivers is at the mercy of the developers and also the Hardware manufacturers.

5.2 Programming Language (Inhaltsverzeichnis) (Sprachauswahl)

For performance reasons we have opted to use C programming language wiki

In other DBox derived products such as the dream box and VU+ they have opted for a python layer to operate on top of the operating system. python is a higher level scripting language used to define and setup elements in the gui and for an intrim language between the OS that is easlly programmable. This was done so that so that users can easilly develop and minipulate the system and intergrate plugins skins etc... into the system but this has a proformance hit on these system and can cause them to become slow and laggy and bloated but has the benifit of being easy for the community to develop for with out knowing much about the underlying system.

TitanNit adresses these key conserns and has developed as much as possible br programming in C to increase the proformance of the system but still alowing ease of intergration of plugins and skins using basic scripts.

5.3 Source Control (Inhaltsverzeichnis) (Sprachauswahl)

TitanNit is a semi closed source project based on the SH4 open duckbox project and contains open source elements released as required by the licences of those projects.

5.4 The Dev team (Inhaltsverzeichnis) (Sprachauswahl)

The TitanNit project is proudly produced by the AAF Dev team and other loyal members and helpers. development is importand aswell as the work they do to help out with such things as skin's, channel logo's and setups, translations, supplemental programs and tools, and plugins and this is a place for them to be recgonised.

Note: currently this section is blank as i will leave it up to the developers and other loyal team members to place their mark
