Where: At Andrew's house
Who: Andrew, Michael
- Andrew put together a postable version of PicCore - now CAN node firmware people can begin real coding with the routines in PicCore. Hooray.
- Michael soldered up the ATV distribution board that Nate planned and started. Andrew followed up on the system throughout sunday and now the system, with the exception of the ATV transmitter, is working (and tested!). See AmateurTelevision for some cool pictures.
Where: PSU FAB CS Lab
Who: James, Larry, Jamey
- Last Tuesday, James and Jamey debugged James' slap-together rocket code, fixed logic problems, and James wrote a simple "dump the packet" telemetry client that runs on the laptop.
- Today, James upgraded the telemetry client with an eye for helping debug CAN firmware integration, especially for high-data-rate devices like the IMU. It now uses curses and provides a sorted display of recent message ids. What we need next is real CAN nodes blurting out messages.
- James helped to get the sound card working on Larry's notebook computer.
- Larry got his DTMF dialing code and simple menu interface to produce speaker output with the desired tones for the RF backup uplink.
- Jamey assisted Larry and came up with a directory plan for the new CVS repository -- which will be hosted at cvs.psas.pdx.edu, and will include directories for all kinds of ground control, tower, flight computer, and can node software. It will have a hierarchy to easily find, compile, and access code modules written in PIC, C, Java, common libraries and common includes.
