Bertl, its Akhilesch who recently sent us his CV for electronics development
18:52
Bertl
yup, talking with him right now
18:52
se6astian
I am cooking currently, could you be so kind to introduce him ;)
18:52
se6astian
perfect, thanks !
18:55
Bertl
welcome akhilesh! please introduce yourself for the folks hanging around here.
18:57
akhilesh
having 6 years of exp as a hardware design engineer specifically in the filed of Analog circuit design and High speed Interface design
18:57
akhilesh
Ethernet, SRIO and Hyperlink Interface
18:58
akhilesh
Worked on FPGA and DSP based board design and I can do VHDL code as well.
18:58
Bertl
so you are basically the perfect candidate for axiom :)
18:59
akhilesh
Currently working for Texas Instruments Inc
18:59
Bertl
what brought you to the project and what kind of contributions do you envision in the near future?
19:00
Bertl
(i.e. where do you think you can contribute most and how?)
19:01
akhilesh
I am deeply interested in Cinema industry and how technology can bring next gen movies for masses.. That thought brought me into this.....
19:01
akhilesh
I can contribute on the board design as well as signal integrity part... Also if you need some help on the signal processing side
19:02
Bertl
did you work on an open source or open hardware project before?
19:03
akhilesh
I contributed for the Pandaboard hardware design......
19:03
akhilesh
that was on the audio part....
19:04
Bertl
ah, great!
19:04
Bertl
so did you already find some time to look at the axiom alpha prototype?
19:04
Bertl
i.e. ZedBoard and CMV12K Adapter
19:05
akhilesh
yep...
19:06
Bertl
what's your opinion on the adapter? did you have a look at the schematic and layout?
19:06
akhilesh
i believe the proto is complete and you were able to get the HDMI test pattern on the Zed board
19:06
akhilesh
Schematics I didnt download.. need to do that...
19:07
Bertl
okay, no problem
19:07
Bertl
how's your time-plan for the weekend?
19:07
akhilesh
pretty much free as of now....
19:09
Bertl
great! so I'd suggest you take a quick look at the adapter board and let me know what you think of it
19:10
akhilesh
there is no pdf version of it right?
19:10
akhilesh
which cad tool used for the work, so that I can install the same
19:10
Bertl
there is, but I think it would be simpler to check with the eagle files or gerbers
19:10
akhilesh
and view the schematic and layout
19:10
akhilesh
eagle/
19:11
Bertl
you can grab the eagle tools (for Linux, Windows, MacOS) for free
19:11
Bertl
http://www.cadsoftusa.com/
19:12
akhilesh
will do the same
19:12
Bertl
please don't hold back on comments and critisism, we are interested in improving our work whenever and wherever we can
19:13
akhilesh
also i want to know where you guys are located so that I can come online and chat with
19:13
Bertl
se6astian and I are located in Austria/Europe, but our time schedule is quite different
19:14
Bertl
se6astian will probably go to bed in a few hours where I
19:14
Bertl
will be working for some time tonight
19:15
akhilesh
ok.. me based out in India
19:15
Bertl
akhilesh: do you have access to a zedboard (not right now but in general)?
19:15
akhilesh
no.....
19:15
akhilesh
I have other open source boards with me beagleboard and pandaboard
19:15
Bertl
okay, no problem
19:17
Bertl
so, please feel free to hang around and if you want to know something about us, about axiom, about the prototype or whatever, just ask
19:17
akhilesh
also I tried to download the schematic from github.. couldnt
19:17
akhilesh
i can see the files over there....
19:17
Bertl
http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/
19:18
Bertl
you should find a lot of stuff there
19:18
Bertl
http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/cmv12k-adapter-v1.0.pdf for example is the schematic as pdf
19:18
akhilesh
ok.. thanks.. let me go through the adapter board and give the comments
19:18
Bertl
http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/cmv12k-adapter-v1.0.zip contains the layers as pdfs
19:19
Bertl
http://vserver.13thfloor.at/Stuff/AXIOM/cmv12k-adapter-v1.0.{sch,brd} are schematic and board
19:20
akhilesh
ok..
19:23
akhilesh
are you deriving the clock to CMV12000 from the Zedaboard/
19:24
Bertl
yes, both the LVDS clock and the normal command clock
19:25
akhilesh
whats the freq?
19:26
Bertl
LVDS is 300MHz, the command clock is around 60MHz
19:26
akhilesh
CMV12000 datasheet is there on the link you send/
19:27
Bertl
the datasheet is actually on github
19:27
Bertl
se6astian can provide an url
19:27
akhilesh
ok.. no probs.. i will get it....
19:28
akhilesh
