  • @Austin Patel update on hardware assembly

    • progress on assembling the small boards

    • 50 big boards arrived (with popcorn!)

    • step 1: silver epoxy SCuM to board

    • step 2: heat to cure for 15 min at 120C

    • discussion about wire bonding procedure

    • @Jackson Paddock is free to help out

    • Alex and I (and Jackson) are going into lab today to do more assembly

  • @Jackson Paddock

    • presents slides on First process corner simulation

    • initial draft of thesis outline, to be discussion 1:1 with @Kristofer PISTER

  • @Fil Maksimovic

    • SCuM, using one of the Q board

    • wasn’t able to program using optical, will try with 3-wire bus

    • will try lighthouse v2 with SCuM

    • enjoying the reverse engineering thread on lighthouse v2, similar functionality to GPS (https://github.com/cnlohr/esptracker/issues/1 )

      • SCuM cannot receive the bit (FSK modulated signal), but maybe can do energy detect

      • discussion about the nRF52840 DK as a programmer (https://www.nordicsemi.com/Software-and-Tools/Development-Kits/nRF52840-DK). @Kristofer PISTER to send e-mail. No update from @Said Alvarado-Marin

      • nRF52840

      • @Fil Maksimovic and @Thomas Watteyne to test at the lab tomorrow.

      • Information regarding the supply voltage registers of the nRF52840 https://crystalfree.atlassian.net/l/c/NR69mmu1

  • @Said Alvarado-Marin

  • @Razanne Abu-Aisheh

    • simulation

  • @Thomas Watteyne

    • hiring 1/2 interns for building 1,000 swarm over the summer, down to shortlist

    • SmartMesh kits for @David Burnett , and/or Falco boards

  • @David Burnett

    • Repeater node proposal, hybrid acoustic/RF for extra-terrestial planet exploration

    • exciting proposal writing
