Bertl
hey cod! how are you!
12:31
cod
I'm fine and you?
12:32
Bertl
I'm fine too. so you're interested in the AXIOM project?
12:32
cod
Yes, tell me how?
12:34
Bertl
well, it is an open source/ open hardware project, so you can simply start to work on something :)
12:34
Bertl
what areas are you interested in?
12:34
cod
hardware
12:35
cod
hardware and programming
12:36
Bertl
okay, what kind of programming?
12:36
cod
embedded c, python and arduino
12:37
Bertl
sounds good.
12:37
Bertl
have you checked out the hardware designs we already have?
12:38
cod
No
12:38
Bertl
that would probably be a good start to get comfortable with the AXIOM Beta
12:39
cod
okay, I will analyze it
12:39
Bertl
if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask
12:41
cod
haha, what are things I need to know before doing tasks
12:43
Bertl
well, as I said, you can start anytime, but it helps to know what you're doing :)
12:44
Bertl
for example on the hardware side, we have plugin modules and shields with a now fixed interface
12:44
Bertl
we already have plugin modules for HDMI and PMOD
12:46
cod
Got it, how it benefits me (I'm a student)?
12:47
Bertl
first and foremost, you are going to learn a lot, trust me on that :)
12:48
Bertl
then, maybe you can use one or the other "project" for your studies, maybe even write a thesis about it?
12:48
cod
yeah, that's helpful
12:49
Bertl
and finally, there is the rewarding knowledge that you have been part of something big ,,, also makes a good line on the CV
12:50
cod
could you give me a simpler task that you did before, to check myself whether I'm capable of doing things
12:51
Bertl
sure, why not. hardware design?
12:51
Bertl
or rather on the software side?
12:52
cod
both combination(embedded)
12:53
Bertl
okay, what about an HDMI input module?
12:54
cod
okay
12:55
Bertl
first, check out the plugin interface
12:55
Bertl
basically up to 6 LVDS channels
12:56
Bertl
then, find a way to convert CML (HDMI) to LVDS
12:56
Bertl
make sure that the input is properly protected (ESD)
12:56
cod
any tips/
12:57
Bertl
well, check out the HDMI specification
12:58
cod
okay
12:58
Bertl
search for other FOSS/OH projects doing HDMI in
12:58
Bertl
you can also learn from application notes for specific chips
12:59
Bertl
google helps a lot when e.g. searching for CML to LVDS
13:01
cod
ok, I will do it.
13:01
cod
bye,then.
