hi John-K
11:09
John-K
hey se6astian
11:10
se6astian
did you get my pm from a few days back?
11:10
John-K
I did not yet
11:11
John-K
I haven't booted up that computer since I returned from a short vacation
11:11
John-K
resend to this nick?
11:11
Bertl
you are still hoping it will arrive? :)
11:13
John-K
hehehe
11:14
John-K
hey Bertl, when you have a moment, could you post up the latest sourcecode for snap3/train3 et al?
11:14
John-K
I think the source version that I have is very old and doesn't seem to function like the binaries on the image you gave me some time ago
11:15
Bertl
sure, no problem
11:16
John-K
se6astian: just logged into my BNC and read your PM. Will ask the procurement folks here and will let you know very soon
11:18
John-K
Bertl: BTW, I'm not sure that the FTDI I2C stuff will work without bitbanging it
11:19
John-K
the FTDI docs say to connect two IO pins to SDA so that you can send and sense the return value without changing the IO direction
11:20
John-K
I've been working mostly on getting our software daemon up and running in preparation for testing our equipment this week
11:21
John-K
hopefully some people will find parts of it useful (network daemon, allows for power on/off, sensor init, capture frame, etc..)
11:21
Bertl
John-K: that is only in case you want to use the MPSSE
11:21
John-K
Bertl: correct
11:21
Bertl
which we can't do anyway, otherwise we lose the JTAG
11:22
Bertl
but the example code I wrote shows how to bit-bang efficiently
11:22
John-K
well depending on which pins of the MPSSE you end up using, I guess
11:22
Bertl
it is either JTAG or I2C/SPI
11:22
Bertl
and as we have only one port on that FTDI, no option to have both
11:23
John-K
sure
11:24
Bertl
anyway, the bit-banging should be rather efficient, given that we have high speed USB and 'low' speed I2C
11:24
Bertl
and we can send byte streams out most (all?) of the time for controlling the I2C slaves
11:28
Bertl
John-K: http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/BETA/JOHN-K/
11:28
John-K
perfect, thanks
11:29
Bertl
you're welcome!
11:29
Bertl
how is the routing fabric interface going? any progress there?
11:30
John-K
slowly, the contractor is currently working through a few issues
11:30
Bertl
how so?
11:31
Bertl
I mean, Beta related or something else?
11:31
John-K
GPIO, I2C master and SPI master are implemented as well as a wishbone address decoder
11:31
John-K
not beta related
11:31
John-K
related to the vhdl for the CPLD
11:31
Bertl
problems with diamond?
11:32
John-K
bugs in the VHDL that he wrote I believe
11:32
John-K
he's simulating some things to try and figure it out
11:32
Bertl
ouch ... okay
11:32
John-K
I don't think he has enough room left on the machx02 for chipscope
11:33
John-K
(we're using the 1200 now)
11:33
Bertl
yeah, we kind of decided to go with the 1200 as well
11:33
John-K
I think it will be sufficient
11:34
Bertl
I still have a board with the 2000 and we thought about going cheap with the 640, but the middle seemed a good choice
12:08
Bertl
off for a nap ... bbl

evening toxitobi!

Do you know which kind of thread pins are used to allign those pcbs to each other?
18:53
Bertl
we use M3 alu threads for attaching the mount base
18:53
Bertl
they go all way through the PCB stack on the Beta (if that's what you mean)
18:55
toxitobi
yeah exactly the long ones, that helps me thx
