* Gavin showed off the sleek new tm3k refactor, now known as tm4k. * Andrew mounted jGPSv3 to the flight stack for more real-world testing. * Kenny replaced the LTC Alpha WiFi with a "red card" like we use everywhere else. (And blew up a spare with reverse voltage. Ooops.) * Devin and Glenn tested a bunch of our RF cables with the VNA. * Glenn painstakingly polished the flight stack rail end-caps which create RF shielding for the GPS and WiFi sections. Rust is bad, Glenn is good. * Tm4k WiFi amp was sent home with Devin for diagnosis. * Theo and Nathan schemed, hacked and conspired on all manner of interesting things, including COTS GPS streaming and visualization. * We watched in awe as video streaming came up with ease and has shockingly low latency across tm4k link. Nice work on the scripts Chuck! * Full network path testing in the rocket room with tm4k and LTC updates went smoothly after appropriate WiFi kernel modules were auto-loaded.
Near-future work: * FDT polishing to make it travel-ready will begin Sunday. * Do something cool with the Vector Signal Generator while we have it. * Remaining jGPSv3 boards will be built after Venus 8 chips arrive next week. As usual, there was cool stuff happening while I was zoning out, so the above list is incomplete. Please add your cool projects and accomplishments. -- Kenny -+---+++-++-++++--+------+-+-++--++--+-+-++--+++-++----+-++-+++---+----+--+----+ On Fri, 2015-06-12 at 12:51 -0700, Andrew Greenberg wrote: > Hey!
