first we started to write (me and apurvanandan) to write the first code on RFW and its done
16:07
aSobhy
second i start my first week implementation it was link training between ZYNQ and MachXO2
16:08
Bertl
sounds good, anything to look at?
16:09
aSobhy
I didn't complete it l write the PRNG and working on 8b/10b from the zynq side
16:10
aSobhy
Bertl which one ?
16:10
Bertl
both, the test code and the link training stuff
16:12
aSobhy
here is the github link of link training https://github.com/aabdosobhy/Bi-Direction-packet-protocol?files=1
16:13
aSobhy
its not the last version i didnt push the PRNG yet
16:14
se6astian
thanks aSobhy, anything else?
16:15
aSobhy
and for the test code I'll upload after docummentation
16:15
aSobhy
no thats all thanks se6astian
16:15
se6astian
great, thanks
16:16
se6astian
Nira, your turn
16:16
Nira
hi!
16:17
Nira
on this week I have set up my pc for everything to work on it, the hardware has arrived, so I have been trying it and checking if I could do everything work as expected
16:17
Nira
I have been changing some things for testing myself, checking if I could do it do what I wanted and so
16:17
Nira
and that's basically what I have been doing
16:18
se6astian
have you successfully compiled and flashed the remote hardware with the latest github source already?
16:19
Nira
yes! I did
16:20
se6astian
wonderful, thanks for the report
16:20
se6astian
Fares: your turn
16:21
Fares
Hi all!
16:21
Fares
I was working last week on completing and testing an early version of the encoder on the fpga.
16:22
Fares
I completed some code and test cases, fixed few bugs and wrote a code to test the encoder. and so far it is working correctly.
16:23
Fares
I also started to refactor the code to support for different number of pixels per cycle to make two different configurations for the micro and the beta.
16:25
Fares
all the fpga code and test cases on github now, I will document and push the test I did on the fpga later and all its related files
16:25
Fares
that would be all. thank you
16:25
se6astian
great, thanks for the report
16:25
se6astian
dev__: your up
16:26
dev__
hello everyone
16:26
dev__
last week, Problems related to simple playback of MLV was rectified in OC.
16:27
dev__
now , it can support some specific MLV files
16:27
dev__
This week, I am trying to implement Pool allocator for optimization purpose, so that can be used for handling mulitple frames. I will start this by making a diagram for structure of allocator, so mentors can check the process.
16:27
dev__
Thank you !
16:29
se6astian
dev__: is it planned to write individual preview frames to disk or RAM when preparing real time playback?
16:29
se6astian
or how is the pool allocator envisioned exactly?
16:30
dev__
I was trying make ring like custom memory allocator , which can be contain those frames which need to be rendered on screen
16:31
dev__
it would have functionalities by which we can free old frames and allocate new frames
16:31
BAndiT1983|away
changed nick to: BAndiT1983
16:31
se6astian
right so in RAM
16:32
dev__
Yes
16:32
se6astian
understood, thanks
16:32
dev__
But not all frames at once
16:32
se6astian
Y_G: your turn
16:33
Y_G
Hi All,
16:33
Y_G
This week most of my work was to understand how I2C communication works, and create I2CAdapter which would replicate the functions defined in `i2c.func` in the scripts.
16:33
Y_G
I have the base functionality ready ,but need to test it on beta rn to make sure it's working .
16:34
Y_G
Planning on doing this in the initial part of this week .
16:34
Y_G
That would be it from my side
16:35
BAndiT1983
Y_G, trying to check who can update firmware at the hub
16:35
BAndiT1983
still had no time to update my sensorless one to try your changes locally
16:36
se6astian
thanks Y_G, its great to see you at the meetings here as you missed some of the previous ones IIRC
16:36
se6astian
RexOrCine|away: should be at the hub soon if I understood his messages correctly
16:36
se6astian
please contact him for making local adjustments
16:36
se6astian
apurvanandan[m]: your turn
16:36
BAndiT1983
se6astian, please notify him about updating the beta to latest firmware, thanks in advance
16:36
BAndiT1983
ah ok
16:36
apurvanandan[m]
Hi everybody
16:37
apurvanandan[m]
This week I have been writing the code for FT601 controller for the MachXO2 fpga on usb plugin module
16:39
apurvanandan[m]
For first test, I am presently not using random number generator and using just a counter. I successfully removed the usage of EBR SRAM primitive which was consuming lot of memory. Currently a register file is used for approx 0.5KB fifos
16:40
apurvanandan[m]
Pre fetch and data generation written, currently working on FSM
16:41
apurvanandan[m]
But anyways the code is ready to test the plugin ft601 of the plugin I got delivered today
16:41
apurvanandan[m]
Bertl, the jtag worked. I successfully read the idcode of LCMXO2-2000HC
16:41
Bertl
excellent!
16:42
Bertl
so we will soon get some reports of counter data via USB 3 :)
16:42
apurvanandan[m]
By this week I think majority of ft601 controller would be complete and working on hardware.
16:42
apurvanandan[m]
That was all from my side in this week
16:42
apurvanandan[m]
Bertl: surely
16:43
se6astian
great, thanks!
16:43
se6astian
quick update from my side and then Bertl might want to have some closing words as well
16:45
se6astian
as you probably have heard MAKE USA is bankrupt which leaves the maker faire events and magazines, etc in limbo for the near future
16:45
se6astian
they say they want to continue but its unclear how it will be funded for now
16:46
se6astian
this does not affect any maker faires in central europe though as they are not run by Make USA but local sublicensors
16:46
se6astian
we are considering going to maker faire hannover in august to showcase the AXIOM project
16:46
se6astian
another topic regards the AXIOM Beta remote setup: https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/AXIOM_Beta_Remote_Access
16:47
se6astian
small changes have been made as you have probably seen in emails already: remote.apertus.org is now the primary entrace to work with this setup
16:48
se6astian
and as already mentioned some time ago we plan to shoot a new team talk soon and would ask gsoc students to provide video footage or photographs or you working on your project so we can show it when we talk about your individual projects during the team talk
16:49
se6astian
these can be shot with smartphones or any other camera
16:49
Bertl
(best with hardware visible/present :)
16:49
se6astian
if you have any questions about this feel free to contact me anytime about the details
16:50
se6astian
yes, we want to see you, your hardware, you working, anything that might be interesting to our viewers
16:50
se6astian
ok thats it from me this week
16:50
se6astian
Bertl: anything from you?
16:51
Bertl
well, besides finishing and testing a Beta, I spent most of my time with mentoring
16:51
se6astian
very good :)
16:51
Bertl
after the students received their hardware, wiring stuff up and getting it running was the goal
16:51
Bertl
and I guess we succeeded there so far :)
16:52
se6astian
did you do any tests with the laser cutter you planned on the weekend?
16:52
Bertl
nope
16:53
se6astian
ok
16:53
Bertl
that's it from my side
16:54
se6astian
thanks
16:55
se6astian
anyone else want to share/discuss anything?
16:59
se6astian
ok then, thanks everyone for attending and happy hacking :)
16:59
se6astian
we see each other next week same time same place if not before that
