Bertl, what protocol can be used to send the 4k data to the modules?
01:29
apurvanandan[m]
We won't be sending TMDS encoded data to these modules as you said
01:44
Bertl
just to sync the nomenclature here, the 'modules' are 'plugins'
01:45
Bertl
the protocol between Zynq and Artix/MachXO2 will be on top of LVDS
01:45
Bertl
TMDS would be one option, 'normal' 8/10 encoding another
01:46
Bertl
some kind of ECC or redundancy would be good for higher speeds as we can't simply retransmit incorrect data
02:10
apurvanandan[m]
What pixel depth is desired here
02:11
apurvanandan[m]
I mean number of bits per pixel?
02:13
Bertl
typically 8 - 12 bit
02:14
apurvanandan[m]
Can this be done by TMDS over 1ghz LVDS in 4k 25 fps?
02:14
apurvanandan[m]
Considering 6 TMDS pins
02:17
Bertl
no idea, probably not
02:24
apurvanandan[m]
If we want to use suppose 2 TMDS pin pairs for single color channel, that would make it 2Ghz of data and according to my calculation we require atleast 2.2GHz for this amount of data.
02:24
apurvanandan[m]
I guess we will need to lower the fps?
02:28
Bertl
we have a total of 12 LVDS pairs for a dual plugin module
02:31
apurvanandan[m]
But the isn't the USB 3.0 module mono/single plugin type?
02:34
Bertl
so what plugin are we talking about now?
02:35
Bertl
on the USB 3.x module, we have a limit of 400Mbyte/s throughput from the FT60x
02:35
Bertl
so there is no point in transfering more data to the plugin
02:35
apurvanandan[m]
Ok ok I got my mistake
02:36
apurvanandan[m]
Sorry
02:36
Bertl
no problem
02:38
apurvanandan[m]
One request, You said to put some link about MGTs on T721?
02:39
Bertl
yes, I said I'll do that
02:39
apurvanandan[m]
Ok :)

Bertl, In the AXIOM beta manual it is mentioned that USB 3.0 will be used to stream 4k 12 bit video at 25 fps, that turns out to be 4096216012325= 8 Gbit/s
03:05
apurvanandan[m]
This exceeds the ftdi limit?
03:05
apurvanandan[m]
4096x2160x12x3x25=8Gbit/s
03:07
Bertl
4096*3072*12*25 = 3774873600 = 4.7 Gbit/s
03:07
Bertl
*3.7 Gbit/s
03:11
apurvanandan[m]
Isn't the resolution to be streamed equal 4096x2160? as mentioned in manual.
03:20
Bertl
the the sensor can do 4096x3072 sensel
03:21
Bertl
but reducing the area to 4096x2160 would reduce the required bandwidth even more
03:34
Bertl
the reason for 4096x2160 is that even at full speed the FT60x can 'only' do 100Mhz clock on the parallel side, which in turn results in the 400MByte/s or 3.2Gbit/s datarate
03:35
Bertl
4096x2160x12*30 = 3185049600 which is just below the limit
03:36
Bertl
but with a little lossless compression (green channels will be quite similar), I'm optimistic that we can also fit the full sensor data even at 30FPS

greetings!
05:21

hey GC! how's it going?
05:22
GC
doing well! how are you?
05:23
Bertl
fine, tx!
05:24
GC
I believe I got the USB working again. Previously on the new nightly firmware lsusb showed nothing
05:24
GC
I looked at the old firmware I had from a while back and used the device tree usb settings from that and now it detects my wifi usb stick.
05:25
Bertl
ah, excellent! IIRC vup2/anuejn had problems with USB as well
05:25
GC
yeah. their is an open issue for it.

05:25
shivamgoyal
joined the channel
05:26
Bertl
so would be a good idea to upload a diff of your changes
05:26
GC
yeah. Interestingly the kernel on my old SD card is 4.4, and the nightly build is 4.2 it seems
05:28
Bertl
might be related to xilinx vs. mainline, but 4.2 sounds old to me
05:28
GC
yeah
05:28
GC
Can you tell me the difference between the "beta" and "micro" firmware builds?
05:29
Bertl
the micro is based on a different development board
05:30
GC
ok. so I should stick with the beta I assume
05:30
Bertl
yep
05:33
GC
What's the preferred method to submit my device tree changes for review? Submit a pull request? I've been out of the loop so not sure what the current practices are development and review
05:34
Bertl
a pull request is certainly fine I'd say
05:34
GC
sounds good
05:34
Bertl
alternatively a patch (diff) for review ... whatever is simpler for you
05:35
GC
where would the diff be put for review? just in the issue notes?
05:35
Bertl
somewhere online or sent via e-mail or something like that

Hello there

do you know if the intention is to have wifi tools included in the base image? iwlist and wpa_supplicant aren't installed, although they are used in the AXIOM Beta Manual for wifi...

Hi motoflare, I'm just getting back up to speed on the project. If you don't find the write person around on IRC you might try emailing someone on the apertus team familiar with the GSOC.

10:55

the plan is to install wifi tools, and craete a hotspot as a default
10:56
anuejn
it might make sense to add some option to act as a client too
10:56
anuejn
maybe a config file in the boot partition?

vup2
anuejn: why would you put the config file in the boot partition?
12:00
vup2
i would just do systemd / runit units
12:01
vup2
and per default enable the one that creates a hotspot and make one that just connects as a client which can replace the hotspot one
12:02
anuejn
bc. the boot partition is fat32 and therefore editable with windows / mac computers easily
12:02
anuejn
similiar to what the rpi folks do
12:03
vup2
if the default is creating a hotspot i don't really see a need to be able do edit it with windows / mac
12:03
anuejn
yeah well
12:03
anuejn
you are probably right
12:03
vup2
the main issue i see with putting it in /boot is that it makes recovery harder
12:03
anuejn
recovery?
12:04
vup2
if we do the btrfs "golden" snapshot just mounting that one instead of the normal snapshot makes the whole camera stock again
12:04
anuejn
yup
12:04
anuejn
mounting boot rw would probably be not too geat
12:04
vup2
but if we start to put stuff into /boot and for example you fuck up your hotspot config there is no easy way to get that into factory state again
12:05
vup2
(we would have to figure out a recovery solution for /boot then too)
12:05
vup2
btw can you test GC's patch on the beta, i will test it on the micro...
12:07
anuejn
yup i am on it :)
12:08

Dev_, you should really stick to C++ notation also in your proposal -> methods Start with upper-case and use camel-case, variables/attributes start with lower-case and use camel-case
13:48
BAndiT1983
classes start also with upper-case
13:48
BAndiT1983
this is what i see as one of problems in your challenge code: inconsistency

hi, I'm Nira and I'm a telecommunications engineering student, I would like to apply for the GSoC but I'm doubting when choosing a project
20:20

hey
20:21
nira
I'm interested in Live histogram, waveform, vectorscope or AXIOM Remote: miscellaneous drawing and management tasks
20:22
Bertl
great! be quick, finish the challenge task, write an application proposal and submit it together with your CV before Tuesday evening
20:26
nira
I've completed the C challenge and I've done audiovisual processing with Matlab at the university, I've never worked with PIC but I've used Arduino, I wonder if you could help me on choosing one of this both (T734 or T1126) as I'm interested on both of them
20:27
nira
thanks! I'm working on it
20:28
BAndiT1983
i would suggest AXIOM remote task, rather interesting and there are no proposals till now, if i'm not mistaken
20:37
nira
ok, thank you! I will finish my application and submit it, I'm excited in all this and a little nervous
