morning everyone!
10:24
Sasha_C
Hello there Bertl :)
10:29
Bertl
hey, do you have a ZedBoard available?
10:30
Sasha_C
Unfortunately, I don't
10:30
Sasha_C
Why do you ask?
10:30
Bertl
just checking who is able to test code/early releases
10:37
Sasha_C
What other hardware would be required for testing code/early releases?
10:38
Bertl
for the prototype, the zedboard and the sensor frontend should suffice
10:39
Bertl
the zedboard is probably enough if the sensor is emulated
10:39
Sasha_C
the sensor would be emulated from another computer then?
10:40
Bertl
well, depends, in the simplest case, it is emulated by code running in the FPGA/PL
10:43
Sasha_C
ok then. I'll have to consider whether I can get one (I just purchased a medium format film camera, so I have to weigh up where I spend my money for the next couple of months...)
10:49
Bertl
fair enough ... if you decide to get one, please let me know
10:50
Sasha_C
Will definitely do so
10:51
Sasha_C
Just confirming that this is what you are referring to (ZedBoard Zynqâ¢-7000 Development Board (Zedboard Zynq): http://www.blackboxconsulting.com.au/product-details/ZedBoard-Zynq-xilinx.html
10:54
Bertl
yep, that's it
10:54
Sasha_C
cool
11:12
Bertl
IMHO it's a fair price for what that board can do
11:13
Sasha_C
I agree, but I'm also trying to figure out what else I might be able to use the board for (to justify the purchase).
11:35
Bertl
yes, sure, it is a development board so it might not be that useable for anything else

wb se6astian!
19:21
se6astian
Thanks, I dont have much time this evening but already started extending the wiki
19:22
se6astian
now: dhcp server setup currently
19:32
Bertl
btw, the hardcoded MAC is from my bootloader :)
19:34
Bertl
I've put the configureable MAC per zedboard on my todo list, but for now it is more an advantage than a disadvantage unless you have two boards in the same net
19:36
se6astian
interessting ;), agreed its rather useful indeed
19:50
se6astian
ok massive wiki update for dhcp and tftp setup done
19:51
se6astian
the hdmi test SD card image I will document/try tomorrow evening
19:51
Bertl
