gsoc article was a great success last week

was picked up by oshpark blog for example

and well shared on twitter for example
16:04

in other news the PCB panel is advancing, after BAndiT1983 fixed various issues with the gerber files we generated I contacted several manufacturers
16:05
se6ast1an
we did not get all quotes back yet but there is a suspicion that the Rogers 4350B material might be a very expensive choice
16:05

16:05
Osqar
Hi!
16:05
BAndiT1983
hi Osqar
16:05
se6ast1an
details will follow and I had a long chat with Bertl about exploring if FR4 (cheap standard material) might be "good enough" and how we can evaluate potential problems in certain areas
16:06
se6ast1an
hi oscar, great to have you here
16:07
se6ast1an
if the material choice and panel order will take more time (likely) we will just order a set of mixed subpanels from oshpark in the meantime
16:07
se6ast1an
to build a few betas
16:07
se6ast1an
my next big topic and likely that closes this chapter is that the PCB prober development is finished
16:07
se6ast1an
I successfully probed two powerboards
16:07
se6ast1an
it worked pretty reliably
16:08
se6ast1an
I did a few last changes that improve GUI layout and add convenience features but overall I think there isn't much that can be added/improved anymore for this hardware
16:09
se6ast1an
what I still want to do is capture pictures and videos so we can properly demostrate what it does
16:09
Bertl
well, there is a lot of space for improvement on the probe side as well as the pizero integration
16:09
se6ast1an
and with that I want to hand over to BAndiT1983 who is working on the visualization of the probing results currently
16:09
se6ast1an
BAndiT1983: go ahead please
16:10
BAndiT1983
alright
16:10
se6ast1an
<Bertl> well, there is a lot of space for improvement on the probe side as well as the pizero integration <- sure, but that is more your area of expertise
16:10
BAndiT1983
after the first probe runs were done, i was wondering if we can get a visualization for quick preview of results, by re-using the pad extractor script code
16:10
BAndiT1983
this is current "work in progress" -> https://pasteboard.co/JvjHKgg.png
16:11
BAndiT1983
the resistive and capacitive values of pads are encoded in RGB values of the pad area rectangles
16:11
BAndiT1983
the brightness of each color channen is representing certain value of measurement, but we are still checking which ranges are required
16:12
BAndiT1983
additionally some small tasks were done regarding the AXIOM Remote, like fixing the build and also started to check on the parameter DB feature from panintended
16:12
BAndiT1983
one of the next steps will be incorporation of the GSoC code which was created by metal_dent[m], also virtual camera for the remote visualiser is on the list
16:12
BAndiT1983
that would be it
16:13
se6ast1an
great, thanks!
16:13
se6ast1an
I remembered two more small topics:
16:13
se6ast1an
Google Summerof Code mentor summit will happen this thursday
16:13
panintended
BAndiT1983: I'm listening in. Let me know if you need help. I've got some time on my hands these days!
16:13
se6ast1an
normally its an event hosted by google in Silicon Valley but this year due to covid will be an all online event
16:14
BAndiT1983
hi panintended, that's good, we should check on your code and how to proceed, was occupied by my job and some side-projects
16:14
se6ast1an
and we received small 10x10mm optical low pass filter samples from Sunex
16:14
se6ast1an
and I designed a 3d print holder part so we can place it in a beta prototype
16:15
se6ast1an
will print soon, but currently do not have a beta at the office or here
16:15
se6ast1an
maybe Bertl doesn't need one anymore now that gsoc is over?
16:15
se6ast1an
two topics done!
16:15
se6ast1an
panintended: great, help would be much appreciated
16:16
se6ast1an
Osqar: any news on your side?
16:17
Bertl
the printholder is for the case I presume?
16:17
Bertl
*3d print holder
16:17
Osqar
No, just finishing the bookkeeping for last qurter. Please send me any invoices that you think I could be missing.
16:18
se6ast1an
its a filter holder that replaces on metal optical filter holder in the CP stack
16:18
Bertl
as far as I know, I do not have any CP enclosure parts here
16:18
se6ast1an
Osqar: will do
16:18
se6ast1an
have one invoice for ultra96 dev board
16:19
se6ast1an
Bertl: correct but you have the beta internals, I have the enclosure
16:19
Bertl
so you need the internals to check the filter which goes onto the enclosure?
16:19
se6ast1an
correct
16:20
Bertl
interesting ... well, I will need the 'original' hub beta for a little longer, as it is the only model with a sensor to test with at the moment
16:21
Bertl
but I'm sure we can find some 'internals' for your test
16:22
se6ast1an
I guess I can return the hardware again after a few days
16:22
se6ast1an
will want to capture a few snapshots of fine details to evaluate
16:22
se6ast1an
thats it then
16:23
se6ast1an
any news on your front Bertl?
16:24
Bertl
well, I have been mostly busy configuring the backup server and repairing the Beta at the observatory after the SD card got 'destroyed'
16:25
Bertl
I also started populating the new powerboard prototype and preparing the associated tests
16:25
Bertl
other than that, not much happened this week
16:28
se6ast1an
ok, anything else or anyone else with topics?
16:29
Bertl
nothing from my side

se6ast1an
ok then, many thanks everyone who participated! MEETING CONCLUDED
16:31
Osqar
Well, Raphaëlle can already say 'hello' at nine weeks, so I hope she can assemble PCBs in a few months.
16:32
se6ast1an
hopefully we will have replaced all babies with robots by then :P
16:32
Osqar
:D
16:32
se6ast1an
hardware assembly robots that is
16:33
Osqar
Well, then she can do some testing for sure.
16:34
Osqar
See you guys soon!
16:36
se6ast1an
all the best!

greetings! just testing the new 5.9 kernel ... it seems that my LXC userspace is not happy with that ... any suggestions what to check/look for? (lxc_spawn: 1182 Failed to set up id mapping.)

sorry, wrong channel ...
