se6astian: the modules in the resized enclosure pics, that's for SSDs?
10:24
Bertl
off for a nap ... bbl

se6astian
dmj_nova, for example, it has sdi connectors atm but it could be whatever you need
10:25
dmj_nova
oh, I see those now
10:26
dmj_nova
I like the idea of PCIe as a connector, standard and high bandwidth.
10:27
se6astian
yes, and cheap :)
10:27
dmj_nova
Less keen on the specific connection setup though
10:27
dmj_nova
would mean a set number of modules
10:29
dmj_nova
se6astian: btw, there are flexible pcie risers
10:32
dmj_nova
se6astian: One thought that suggests would be how possible would a daisy chain of pcie be?
10:33
dmj_nova
I suspect quite difficult, so might not be worth it.
10:39
se6astian
its a point to point connection, no daisy chaining
10:39
dmj_nova
se6astian: hmm
10:41
dmj_nova
So the big difference I see here is a mainboard has a fixed number of connectable modules rather than an extensible n-module system
10:47
se6astian
correct
10:52
dmj_nova
did we find the n-module system unfeasible?
10:56
se6astian
the finite number of slots approach has some advantages resulting in lower cost and simpler development but has the drawback that not an unlimited number of modules can be attached together (not a very likely scenario anyway)
10:57
se6astian
the available bandwith gets lower the further you go away from the core/front
10:57
se6astian
so its not like you can stack SSD drives forever anyway
