Welcome to CHZ-Soft
CHZ-Soft, that's me, Christian Zietz. I write software for Windows, Linux, DOS etc. Most of this software is in German and because of that it is of little use to someone who doesn't speak said language. However, there are some exceptions:
- CHZ SD Card Information Tool 1.0
CHZ SD Card Information Tool reads out and decodes information about a Secure Digital (SD) card, such as size, manufacturer and speed class.
NOTE: It only supports internal SD card readers, no external USB readers.
Freeware for Windows - 620 kiB
- 855patch, 855wrap, 845patch, 865patch
These are utilites to work around problems that occur running XFree86 on some computers with Intel 845/855/865 graphic chipsets.
- SHA-1 and HMAC-SHA-1 implementations in C
A GPLed implementation of the Secure Hash Algorithm and of the HMAC message authentication suitable for microcontrollers like the Atmel AVR. English documentation included.
GNU General Public License (GPL) - 15kiB
- libbasiccard 0.2.5
libbasiccard is an open source implementation of the BasicCard (a smartcard) APIs for Linux and other OS. You'll find more information on this page.
- Delphi Class Interface 1.0
The Delphi Class Interface is an object oriented interface to the BasicCard API. English documentation included.
Open Source (read license.txt) - 240 kiB
Then there are some articles related to retro-computing and electronics:
- Connecting the Atari ST to the Internet
- Preserving a floppy disk with a logic analyzer and a serial cable
- Reverse-engineering a Wifi microscope
- Detecting a 2.4 GHz transmission for under 1 EUR
- Wifi/SNTP Clock for the Atari ST/TT/Falcon
I'm 40 years old, I live in Lippstadt in Northern Germany. I like to develop software and to dabble in electronics. I studied electrical engineering before working as research assistant at the Institute of Radiofrequency and Microwave Engineering at Leibniz Universität Hannover. There I designed a time domain measurement system for RF voltages and currents which found its first commercial application in the field of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). Currently, I'm employed as an expert for radar sensors in the automotive industry.
