Morning Bertl

Bertl
hey Rex0r! how's going?
12:09
Rex0r
Not bad, I've got about two hours left in me.
12:10
Rex0r
Any good contacts at Linuxwochen?
12:10
Rex0r
What you up to, working?
12:10
Bertl
Linuxwochen was nice, we got a bunch of new fans I guess
12:11

What's the story with Anthony May?
12:15
Bertl
no idea
12:17
Rex0r
You know what I'm referring to yeah?

ah, it looks like the AXIOM Beta adaptation John_K did
12:21
Bertl
on the left, there is the 'original' AXIOM Beta, although not completely populated
12:21
Rex0r
He's Australian living in the states
12:21
Rex0r
Yep
12:22
Bertl
the right one looks like the one John_K did
12:22
Rex0r
Ah
12:23
Bertl
i.e. Main, Interface and Sensor board have been merged into one board (with more layers)
12:23
Bertl
no actually only main and interface board
12:23
Bertl
the sensor board is still there, it is just turned 90 deg
12:23
Rex0r
I thought the confirmation looked a bit odd aye.
12:23

Spirit532
why are people so rich ;-;
16:10
Spirit532
this Anthony May has THREE cmv12k sensors, as well as three microzeds and a copious amount of prototypes
16:11
Spirit532
that's like, 5 more things than I can afford
16:13
Rex0r
Plus the kit in the background.
16:14
Spirit532
I wish angel investors gave money away for free, and to people instead of companies
16:14
Spirit532
not in this universe though
16:14
Spirit532
I'm not sure what he is going for with those boards though
16:14
Spirit532
It looks like he just consolidated the componentry into a smaller size, at least on the middle prototype
16:15
Rex0r
I've told you man, hire a boat, grass skirt, row to necker island
16:15
Spirit532
who needs that
16:15
Spirit532
I'd buy myself a panel of CMV12k sensors and a bunch of gear
16:15
Spirit532
or upgrade my machine shop

@Bertl_oO @Rex0r Anthony is working with me
19:31
Bertl_oO
Thanks for clarifying, although we expected that from the design
19:31
Bertl_oO
nice housing btw, is it 3D printed?
19:32
John_K
Yep
19:32
John_K
I forget the model of 3D printer we have in house
19:34
John_K
ah, it is a Printrbot
19:34
John_K
Bertl_oO: did you end up writing scripts for the FTDI I2C interface?
19:35
Bertl_oO
I did a test run yes, but nothing which would actually use it
19:36
John_K
I was just about to start writing it, we have a bunch of power boards here to test
19:36
John_K
would you mind sharing what you have?
19:36
Bertl_oO
sure, just let me dig it out ...
19:36
John_K
wonderful, thank you
19:38
John_K
we're discussing writing an article for the website about our experiences adapting the HW to our uses - probably won't happen for a few weeks yet as we're pretty busy getting units assembled
19:42
Bertl_oO

19:44
John_K
thanks!
19:44
John_K
I'll add to it and contribute back
19:44
Bertl_oO
appreciated!
19:45
Bertl_oO
I had a few ideas how to handle the next steps, as this only toggles the I2C pins
19:45
Bertl_oO
one was to utilize the kernel I2C driver, which also supports I2C via GPIO
19:45
John_K
would be glad to hear them if you have time
19:46
John_K
makes sense
19:46
Bertl_oO
i.e. basically write a simple GPIO driver for the FTDI
19:46
John_K
ok
19:46
John_K
that would work for a linux host at least
19:47
Bertl_oO
the nice part is that it would instantly allow to use the I2C scripts we already have
19:47
Bertl_oO
for reading voltages and similar
19:48
John_K
right, that was my goal with this - turn on regulators and measure with the PACs without having to attach to a microZed
19:51
Bertl_oO
another idea was to create an userspace device (fuse or similar) which acts like the i2c device driver in the kernel, thus allowing the tools and scripts to use it similar to i2c-dev

hello :)
20:38
se6astian
hi there
20:40
techydude
so yes, JohnK & I are working on our thing at Mavrx.co. I did pop in here briefly a couple of months ago to say hi & interrogate Bertl on something, but it was a brief visit.
20:43
Bertl_oO
I hope you got the information you needed back then :)
20:44
techydude
my question was about your highly optimised _P/_N pin allocations that made the PCB layout geometry and 4-layer stackup work so... perfectly. which was precisely what we don't have with our 90-degree rotated sensor at the end of the 'Main' PCB, it competely ruined all your good work ;)
20:45
Bertl_oO
what a shame! :)
20:57
techydude
thankfully it still works ;), and any LVDS pair length diffrences were a non-issue with your training script :p
21:01
Bertl_oO
great! :)

I'm off for a nap ... bbl

Spirit532
techydude, what did you make a custom version of the camera for?
21:30
Spirit532
is it the mavrx project?
21:34
techydude
yes, we needed that form-factor to be able to fit enough of them into our airborn pod.
