Bertl: I honestly considered that for my "clone", but it would have meant a custom board froom Avnet for ~700â¬. To be fair, that customization would have been to get 10/40G (Q)SFP+ out, but stil. 30x40mm were intrieguing. It was designed to get full 300fps from the CMV12000... Now I need a softcore ;)

Morning everyone!
16:39
jhlink_
Hey Bertl, I've been thinking of what I can do next, and I can't help but reach the conclusion that I just need experience with the MicroZed board.
16:39
jhlink_
Working on the build system is great, but it's hard without understand how anything works.
16:40
jhlink_
That said, without having a physical microzed board, what do you think about using qemu to emulate a zync-7k board?
16:41
jhlink_
To gain better understanding about how the axiom software works?
16:45
Bertl
there have been some QEMU tests and the arm side should be covered by now
16:45
Bertl
of course, QEMU doesn't emulate the FPGA side, so most of the functionality is not there
16:47
jhlink_
Oh. So, at the end of the day, if I want to contribute a lot to the axiom code base, I'd pretty much have to get the microzed board, right?
16:47
jhlink_
It doesn't seem like there's any other way around it. hahaha
16:49
Bertl
yeah, looks like it :)
16:49
jhlink_
hahahaha, well alrighty then.
16:50
jhlink_
Is there some kind of discount available to axiom for purchasing a microzed board?
16:56
Bertl
there are student discounts IIRC, but otherwise not that I'd know of
17:01
jhlink_
So, not sure if this is a relevant question, but where does axiom source their boards?
17:01
jhlink_
AVnet is out of stock. Newark has a couple in their inventory. Is there a possibility that this dev board is facing End-of-Life?
17:02
jhlink_
ERr, apertus labs source their boards*
17:07
jhlink_
Sorry. The specific board mentioned doesn't seem available.

17:08
Bertl
I don't think they are EoL, but we get them from AVnet
17:10
jhlink_
So, is this board ver. AES-Z7MB-7Z020-SOM-G the only compatible version?
17:10
Bertl
we currently have Revision F
17:11
jhlink_
Do you have a link where I can purchase the dev board?
17:11
jhlink_
It seems like the board itself is either on backorder until next year, or a different board version is availble.

jhlink_
Thanks!!
17:13
Bertl
says 363 in stock
17:14
jhlink_
Weird... I literally just checked that.
17:15
jhlink_
Okay. I was linked to a different part on the MicroZed board web page.

Oh my god, I thought I would never have to worry about tariffs, but good lord.
18:32
jhlink_
There's a 25% tariff on my microzed order
18:32
jhlink_
Good lord!!
