hi metal_dent[m], how is it going?
07:23
metal_dent[m]
hi, morning!
07:24
metal_dent[m]
yesterday I installed mplab xc32 also and tried to open the bootloader files as you told but I think xc32 is not installed properly so will try again today
07:24
metal_dent[m]
do you use any vs plugin for that?
07:30
BAndiT1983
am not aware of any plugin
07:30
BAndiT1983
just using vscode and terminal for builds, which are simple like make and make clean
07:30
BAndiT1983
have you set the path in the makefile correctly?
07:40
apoorva_arora
Thank you apertus for giving this opportunity! Congrats to other GSOC participants.
07:44
metal_dent[m]
the problem is with xc compiler as it crashed, building it again

metal_dent[m]: how exactly did you instal the xc compiler?
08:05
se6ast1an
what is your operating system?
08:05
metal_dent[m]
using this -> https://microchipdeveloper.com/xc32:installation
08:05
metal_dent[m]
os is manjaro
08:10
se6ast1an
and you got 2.40 ?
08:10
se6ast1an
from https://www.microchip.com/mplabxc32linux ?
08:10
metal_dent[m]
yes
08:10
BAndiT1983
using manjaro here, just installing like normal, but in my home dir and adjusting the path, hand no problems ever since
08:11
BAndiT1983
where to install is not important, but makefile path
08:11
se6ast1an
perfect, than I did it exactly the same way as you :)
08:11
metal_dent[m]
let me try again
08:22
metal_dent[m]
it worked, as you said my path was wrong ':D
08:23
BAndiT1983
have README open at the moment, will check if we have a note there
08:23
BAndiT1983
have to reorder it also a bit, as build status should be at the top
08:24
metal_dent[m]
yes, the BL readme is a little chaotic
08:25
se6ast1an
vup, anuejn: added a new image sensor to https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14S7S2OonbVUPZ7ohBFis1h70eb71PDRVX7uAd5ARei0/edit#gid=0 after reading this announcement http://image-sensors-world.blogspot.com/2020/05/on-semi-demos-120db-hdr-imaging-platform.html
08:26

morning folks!
10:13
BAndiT1983
hi
10:18
se6ast1an
good day
10:24
BAndiT1983
se6ast1an: looked at the settings menu, i think it would be good to have pale orange highlighting for the read-only and disabled items, as disabled ones are only making text brighter, which could be overlooked and read-only shows just some rather slim lines
10:55
se6ast1an
agreed, sounds good
10:55
se6ast1an
off to shoot parts of a documentary again today, film life is slowly resuming
10:56
metal_dent[m]
wow, what kind of documentary are you working on?
10:57
se6ast1an
trailer (sorry german): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbnq7Bot-0I
11:01
BAndiT1983
argh, just the pictures are already enough, but when you understand what is said...
11:01
BAndiT1983
metal_dent[m]: it's about micro plastic particles
11:01
BAndiT1983
se6ast1an: do you know the plastic planet documentary?
11:04
metal_dent[m]
yes, got the gist of it ; se6ast1an do share the documentary when it's finished :)
11:09
se6ast1an
will do
11:10
se6ast1an
<BAndiT1983> se6ast1an: do you know the plastic planet documentary? <- sure, werner bootes editor is a good friend and ex colleague
11:12
se6ast1an
off now
11:12
se6ast1an
see you
11:12
BAndiT1983
ah, nice
11:12
BAndiT1983
have fun
11:41
vup
se6ast1an: nice
13:08
vup
Bertl: looking at the IRPS5401M again, I actually think I looked at it before, but ruled it out because it needs 6V for VSUPPLY if you used the internal LDO's for VDRV and VCC and I didn't realize it also allowed to just directly use a external 5V source for them
13:09
vup
so yeah, were swapping the tps65400's for it
13:15
anuejn
se6ast1an: looks nice AND available :)
13:16
anuejn
and ... really cheap
13:18
anuejn
vincentlenoir: I think, that the main idea of that task is to develop synthesizable gateware so that one can develop with an fpga board but without an image sensor
13:18
anuejn
doing a full cosimulation of tha gateware (including that model) and qemu is also desirable but i would consider it is a mostly seperate task
13:19
anuejn
a nice approach to that would imo be the write_cxxrtl path of yosys, which is kind of what verilator does but a bit different
13:20
anuejn
we could develop a "blackbox" (cxxrtl terminology) for the xilinx ps7 primitive that then talks to qemu
13:55
Bertl
vup: glad I could provide some input
13:55
Bertl
vup: regarding the axi writer(s), I forgot on monday ...
13:56
Bertl
It would make sense to test the 'load' on the DDR memory a full burst writer has compared to the in-flight version
13:57
Bertl
I've written a tool (kernel module) to test bandwidth (for similar hardware) so it would be possible to run that on the CPU(s)
14:02
vup
Bertl: ah yeah
14:02
vup
we tried to look at the effect just reading the ram from "/dev/mem" to "/dev/null" using dd had
14:03
Bertl
yeah, forget that :)
14:03
vup
but it was rather minimal if i recall correctly
14:03
Bertl
I'll dig it out and give it a spin on the Beta, then upload it
14:04
Bertl
just have to finish the remote workplace first
14:04
vup
sounds good
15:41
anuejn
nice :r
