Bertl
hey niculescu_vlad! nice to hear from you :)
17:05
intracube
hi
17:05
niculescu_vlad
Sorry for being quite absent. It was a very rough faculty end
17:05
niculescu_vlad
But tomorrow I have the last exam (fortunately)
17:06
anuditverma
same goes for me I have mine on 24th, finally :P
17:07
champika
I'm having exam on this days. from 22nd to 31st may
17:08
Bertl
niculescu_vlad: good!
17:09
se6astian
right so again please pm me now if you have progress to report I will then moderate and sort the reports
17:09
Rex0r
Well hood lick everyone.
17:09
Rex0r
Good luck*
17:14
se6astian
ok lets start
17:14
se6astian
niculescu_vlad please share your report
17:15
Bertl
Rex0r: and I thought we would get ice cream :)
17:15
niculescu_vlad
Ok. So, despite the fact I had to learn for final exams, I managed to do some research for my project (The BUCK converter). I have bought the parts, and I have done some simulations.
17:15
niculescu_vlad
And also designed a test board
17:15

17:15
Bertl
nice
17:16
Rex0r
I can't i'm on a starvation diet.
17:16
niculescu_vlad
I know it doesn't look very good, but building a PCB would have required much more time
17:16
niculescu_vlad
So, I will do one that will include the gate drivers
17:16
niculescu_vlad
Now I am working at the final PCB, which is almost done
17:17
Bertl
well, looks okay for a test to me
17:17
se6astian
sounds good
17:17
niculescu_vlad
It will be designed as a plug in module for the Nexys Video FPGA board
17:18

17:18
niculescu_vlad
this is the board I have. The switching converter will be introduced directly in a PMOD connector
17:18
niemand
joined the channel
17:18
niculescu_vlad
in order to avoid a lot of wires
17:19
niculescu_vlad
I did the schematic and PCB will be ready by the end of this week.
17:19
Bertl
PMOD is a good choice, many FPGA boards feature those
17:20
niculescu_vlad
Yes, and it deals quite good with high frequency ( once I managed to output a 50MHZ squarewave through PMOD)
17:21
niculescu_vlad
That is all I want to report. I will send a BOM and the PCB files to Bertl until Friday.
17:21
se6astian
thanks, very good!
17:21
se6astian
champika: please go ahead, your turn
17:22
champika
So, from 22nd May to 31st May I have my end of semester examination of 7th semester
17:22
champika
on last two weeks, I was very busy with learning to my exam and while discussing with Bertl about the project
17:23
champika
I have went through with the PIC code and the state machine mechanism of the JTAG
17:24
champika
Then I made a google doc, about the details of the project, so I can make a wiki page about the project details
17:25
champika
Thats it I have done regarding the project for this week, because I was busy with my final exam
17:25
Bertl
well done, tx
17:25
se6astian
thanks
17:25
se6astian
anuditverma: please share your report
17:26
anuditverma
So last week I started working on the client App, https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema/axiom-beta-rest-interface/blob/develop/API/client.go
17:26
champika
I'm sorry, I have to leave, I have next exam after 9:30 hours from now, I will read the IRC log later..
17:26
anuditverma
I have pushed some initial updates to github (this time to develop branch :) )
17:26
se6astian
thanks, champika, all the best for the exam, bye!
17:27
anuditverma
So I got little busy with my exams last weekend and also during this time I also attended Airtel hackthon (to which I applied months ago and got shortlisted) and I am glad that our team came 1st :D
17:27
se6astian
congrats :D
17:28
anuditverma
So after 24th I will be free to work completely on my tasks assigned to me, that's all from my side.
17:28
anuditverma
Thanks ! :)
17:28
Rex0r
Good stuff.

the last weeks we mostly spent on preparing for the maker faires, and then actually visiting them :)
17:30
niculescu_vlad_m
I am mobile
17:30
Bertl
nevertheless, there has been some development on the AXIOM Beta side as well
17:31
niculescu_vlad
joined the channel
17:31
Bertl
we finished the hardware for a smart power adapter (the small part connecting the Beta to power)
17:31
champika
left the channel
17:31
Bertl
which, if everything goes as planned, should allow to finally have some smart power on/off
17:32
Bertl
that's basically it from my side for today
17:33
se6astian
thanks!
17:33
se6astian
short report from my side
17:33
se6astian
also about maker faire
17:33
se6astian

17:34
se6astian
and the visitor count for vienna hit 9200 in two days according to the organizers
17:34
se6astian
new record :D
17:34
Bertl
ah yes, I forgot to mention, the SMT Workshop was very successful
17:34
se6astian
but it indeed felt very crowded :D
17:35
se6astian
another project we did last week
17:35
se6astian
was shooting a short documentary film with the AXIOM Beta for a museum exhibitin
17:35

17:36
se6astian
its about metal smelting/recycling
17:37
se6astian
I wanted to write an article about the 3 gsoc projects but didnt get to do that yet
17:37
se6astian
will focus on that soon now
17:37
se6astian
thats it also from my side
17:38
se6astian
Rex0r: do you also want to give a brief update
17:38
se6astian
I see a lot is happening on the website/social media front
17:40
niculescu_vlad
joined the channel
17:40
Rex0r
Yeah the website is being redesigned. Look and feel is reasonably clear and implementation is at about the 15% mark I'd say. ETA unclear.
17:41
Rex0r
apertus and Social Media 2017 Brief - https://mega.nz/#!MJJQWKYZ!DocWq9vOVDXZMfJ2vpW6mKS_f5LcfFreADpDEAU_ttI ... if anyone's interested.
17:43
se6astian
is it for the general public?
17:46
Rex0r
I don't see why not. They're open questions I suppose. The theme is our being conscious of how platforms are behaving and how that behaviour conflicts with our mission statement.
17:47
se6astian
great, thanks
17:47
se6astian
ok, that are the topics/reports for today
17:48
se6astian
anything else to add or discuss from anyone?
17:48
se6astian
and we need to set the next meeting date
17:48
se6astian
in 2 weeks again same time/place?
17:48
se6astian
june 5th
17:48
Rex0r
Sure.
17:48
se6astian
a holiday in austria at least...
