se6ast1an
hi bluez_[m], great!
17:02
se6ast1an
bluez_[m]: do you want to start?
17:02
bluez_[m]
okay!
17:02
bluez_[m]
nothing much this week though, just made some more improvements on the driver
17:03
bluez_[m]
for instance, the "name" sysfs entry for the fpgas are now set through devicetree entries rather than hardcoding them
17:03
bluez_[m]
and so on
17:04
bluez_[m]
also I am done with the article entry!
17:04
Bertl
woohoo!
17:04
se6ast1an
great!, looking forward to it, please email, or did you do it in a google doc?
17:05

Had some confusion with the picture to send... bertl suggested I try to take a picture of mine working on the betas... I tried but as of now couldn't get a decent picture ':D... so I have a screenshot which could also be work..
17:05
se6ast1an
fine :)
17:06
bluez_[m]
<se6ast1an "great!, looking forward to it, p"> Not in google doc but I can do that... guess it would be easier to make some changes that way..
17:06
se6ast1an
yes, sounds good
17:06
se6ast1an
anything else bluez_[m]?
17:06
bluez_[m]
so thats it from me...
17:06
se6ast1an
great, thanks!
17:06
se6ast1an
metal_dent[m]: do you want to go next?
17:07
metal_dent[m]
sure
17:07
metal_dent[m]
i have also completed the article and will share it in google doc
17:07
metal_dent[m]
but haven't decided on the photo yet (still confused ':D )
17:08
metal_dent[m]
that's all from me..
17:08
Bertl

17:08
se6ast1an

17:08
metal_dent[m]

17:09
se6ast1an

17:09
Bertl
metal_dent[m]: looking forward to it!

bluez_[m]
metal_dent: have the same issue xD
17:09
se6ast1an
quick updates from me:
17:10
se6ast1an
I continue working on the prober software, now the focus is on increasing accuracy, or rather reducing inaccuracy
17:10
se6ast1an
dug into open CV for that today
17:10
se6ast1an
improved fiducial recognition: https://cloud.apertus.org/index.php/apps/gallery/#pcb%20prober/irc-meeting-14-09-2020/Screenshot%20at%202020-09-14%2018-03-44.png
17:11
se6ast1an
also added switchable analysis display modes to see whats going on in the different "layers" (HSV), etc.
17:11
Bertl
(that's a link which requires a login)
17:11
se6ast1an
ah sorry

se6ast1an
now working on pad recognition, already with not too bad results: https://cloud.apertus.org/index.php/apps/gallery/s/bPExRjeXZGqDwbW#irc-meeting-14-09-2020/Screenshot%20at%202020-09-14%2018-03-30.png
17:14
se6ast1an
minor misc stuff: I cut out rubber feet for the beta and discussed with other people at the factory hub how we could manufacture those DIY after alser cutting didnt work out too well and creating a custom stamping tool is an overkill for a prototype
17:14
se6ast1an
milling and drag knife cutting were interesting ideas to explore
17:15
se6ast1an
where the drag knife could be utilized in the CNC mill as tool
17:15
se6ast1an
and milling possibly with the rubber in a sandwich between wood plates for example
17:16
se6ast1an
for hardware manufacturing I sent a combined BOM to tele last week containing parts from all 4 boards in one mixed panel
17:16
se6ast1an
thats it from my side
17:16
se6ast1an
Bertl, your turn
17:16
Bertl
thanks!
17:16
Bertl
well, besides helping out (a little) with the prober and checking the transformation math as well as our options there
17:17
Bertl
I spent most of my time testing KiCad 5.1.6, getting used to the workflow, designing new symbols and footprints
17:18
Bertl
working with hierarchical sheets (to some extend) and figuring out work arounds for existing bugs and missing features
17:19
Bertl
the results are quite promising, so I'm positive that we can switch to KiCad very soon
17:20
Bertl
I also investigated 'new' features like circuit simulation via ngspice (which is in the early stages) and 3D rendering for visualization, which seems to work reasonably well but missed 3D models for many parts
17:20
Bertl
that's it from my side for this week
17:21
se6ast1an
great, will you design the ultra96 to beta interface board in kicad?
17:21
Bertl
very likely
17:21
se6ast1an
nice
17:22
se6ast1an
ok, anybody else here?
17:22
bluez_[m]
do checkout my blog entry -> https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_PKsSKHkGRIUN7wOeRmOWtRXzGtcp1Q7XuVk4l958oQ/edit?usp=sharing
17:22
Bertl
I plan to work on Eagle to KiCad conversion this week, so if that goes reasonably well, I do not see a problem with doing the ultra96 interface in KiCad
17:25
bluez_[m]
also the picture looks good? -> https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VEDucovKrjAaMrxeS4sQ05pPqHAH1k_Z/view?usp=sharing
17:25
bluez_[m]
(in case I wont be able to get a decent picture of myself still)
17:29
Bertl
well, the 'blog entry' seems a little short, given that 90% is links :)
17:29
Bertl
anyway, not up to me to decide here ...
17:31
bluez_[m]
sebastian mentioned it should be around 600 characters (including spaces)... and i guess it is...
17:31
bluez_[m]
excluding the links ofc..
17:39
metal_dent[m]
yeah mine is also short as i tried to fit into 600 characters
17:42
Bertl
so be it ...
18:54
anuejn
