@Austin Patel has finals but reports both revised McCoy and Spock boards are back. One McCoy has been wirebonded and SMT assembled, to be tested later this week.
Goal to contribute to ADC & power on next SCuM tapeout in August
Nearly finished with thesis, soliciting feedback
Successfully taped out BLE & RISC-V IC as part of EE290c
Laser cutting more robots and adding magnetic assembly
Learning more about BLE for the dotbot using the nRF52840-DK
Lighthouse 2D is working, needs some calibration, works with the nRF w/ SPI trick. Sends result wirelessly to another nRF to be plotted in Matlab
Got a proposal funded! FPGA + ADI software-defined radio running on battery power.
Discussed difficulty of adding Lydia's new optical receiver to facilitate better lighthouse receive. Optical receiver is yet to be tested.
