[14:19] <G8TMV> DanielRichman: congrats!
[14:20] <Randomskk> DanielRichman: nice going, when's your full test? :P
[14:20] <G8TMV> let him get the new one wet first
[14:22] <DanielRichman> Randomskk, I reckon that if I can find a centre I can do the August one
[14:23] <Randomskk> nice nice :D
[14:24] <DanielRichman> G8TMV, I'm not allowing myself to operate until exams finish in 3 weeks; but then this 2m jpole is going on the roof
[14:25] <Randomskk> that's some excellent self restraint
[14:25] <DanielRichman> nah it means I get distracted by SC2 rather than a Ham radio rig
[14:25] <Randomskk> hehe
[14:25] <Randomskk> that's more like it
[14:26] <Randomskk> I only have four exams, the first in six days, and they finish in less than two weeks
[14:26] <Randomskk> however each is three hours of hell
[14:26] <DanielRichman> oooh lovely
[14:26] <Randomskk> but I can't effectively just work flat out all day long
[14:27] <Randomskk> which means mostly it's a few hours each day of doing past papers and that's pretty much it
[14:27] <Randomskk> there's so much other fun stuff to do
[14:27] Jasperw (~jasperw@93.89.81.29) joined #highaltitude.
[14:27] <DanielRichman> :P
[14:28] <Randomskk> by the end of the week I'll have twenty water guns
[14:28] <DanielRichman> RADARC have asked us to do a talk in February :)
[14:28] <DanielRichman> ha
[14:28] <Randomskk> I've almost finished a schematic for an ethernet enabled weather station
[14:28] <Randomskk> ethernet is loads of fun
[14:28] <Randomskk> jon and I are playing with the predictor code and web interface stuff, too
[14:28] <Randomskk> more urgently I found one of my lipos had buldged a whole lot
[14:28] <DanielRichman> oh? I would have expected ethernet to be a pain :P
[14:29] <Randomskk> "loads of fun"
[14:29] <Randomskk> http://github.com/randomskk/SelWX/raw/master/pcb/selwx_r1/selwx_r1_schematic.png
[14:30] <Randomskk> 17 control lines :P
[14:30] <Randomskk> and we're even using an RJ45 jack with embedded magnetics
[14:30] <Randomskk> normally you'd have to have transformers too
[14:30] <DanielRichman> ahh, 'spose that's something
[14:31] <Randomskk> it helps a little
[14:31] <Randomskk> there are still like 11 capacitors and loads of other shit
[14:31] <DanielRichman> what's the STM 32 like?
[14:31] <Randomskk> and that's just the hardware, the software is going to be equally "fun"
[14:31] <Randomskk> I really like them, generally
[14:31] <Randomskk> they are powerful and pretty cheap and fairly easy to use and have loads and loads of features
[14:31] <Randomskk> their peripherals are awesome
[14:31] <DanielRichman> stm32 vs atxmegas?
[14:32] <Randomskk> haven't had enough experience with atxmega to say, but I'd go with the stm32 personally from what I have seen
[14:33] <DanielRichman> What's the software/compiler like?
[14:33] <Randomskk> AVRs are nice though, I'm a little tempted to play with the new ones
[14:33] <Randomskk> GCC supports the STM32
[14:33] <Randomskk> so, easy
[14:33] <DanielRichman> ah, great
[14:33] <Randomskk> there are IDEs available but I just use vim and gcc and make
[14:33] <Randomskk> they provide C libraries that are fairly good
[14:33] <DanielRichman> yeah, I agree there
[14:33] <Randomskk> not fantastic but decent
[14:35] <Randomskk> this weather station should be fun
[14:35] <Randomskk> but really I should be doing work :P
[14:35] <DanielRichman> Where will you get the board made?
[14:36] <Randomskk> depends on size, probably seeed
[14:36] <DanielRichman> mmm OK
[14:37] <DanielRichman> are the stm built in DACs any good?
[14:37] <Randomskk> never used them
[14:37] <DanielRichman> OK. I'll let you get on with your work :P
[14:37] <Randomskk> two of them
[14:37] <Randomskk> 12bit each
[14:37] <Randomskk> buffered
[14:37] <Randomskk> resistor strings and an amplifier apparently
[14:38] <DanielRichman> R2R?
[14:38] <Randomskk> I imagine so.
[14:38] <Randomskk> they can DMA too
[14:38] <DanielRichman> which STM is that? the one you're using?
[14:38] <DanielRichman> DMA is nice
[14:38] <Randomskk> I'm using an STM32F107 which is the connectivity line one, one of the higher end parts
[14:38] <Randomskk> the F107 are the ones with ethernet basically
[14:39] <DanielRichman> ahh
[14:40] <DanielRichman> :o free samples!?
[14:40] <Randomskk> oh, yea
[14:40] <Randomskk> they are awesome
[14:40] <DanielRichman> right that seals it
[14:40] <Randomskk> I got two free stm32f103s before
[14:40] <Randomskk> they have a serial bootloader builtin
[14:40] <Randomskk> so all you need is a usb-serial to program them
[14:41] <DanielRichman> nice
[14:41] <Randomskk> https://randomskk.net/projects/stm32_dev_board/stm32db_r2.png is my breakout board for them
[14:41] <Randomskk> breaks out two SPI, two I²C, two serial including one in a 6pin FTDI style, JTAG and power
[14:41] <Randomskk> has onboard lipo charging, USB
[14:42] <Randomskk> USB is slightly faulty, it needs a pullup I forgot about
[14:42] juxta_ (~blah@203.122.223.121) joined #highaltitude.
[14:42] <DanielRichman> nice; I like the built in usb
[14:43] <Randomskk> wait hmm
[14:43] <Randomskk> that is revision 2
[14:44] <DanielRichman> is there voltage regulation on that board?
[14:45] <DanielRichman> or is built into the STM?
[14:45] <Randomskk> onboard
[14:45] <Randomskk> 3v3
[14:45] <Randomskk> https://randomskk.net/projects/stm32_dev_board/stm32db_r3.png
[14:45] <Randomskk> that's the latest version
[14:45] <Randomskk> still has the USB pullup issue
[14:46] <Randomskk> but adds lipo charging and fixes a few other things
[14:46] <Randomskk> also uses a 20pin jtag instead of the silly little one
[14:47] <DanielRichman> I see
[14:48] <Randomskk> I think all that was wrong with that was that USBD+ needs a pullup
[14:48] <Randomskk> but yea, it's a fun little breakout board
[14:48] <Randomskk> I have a load of spare PCBs for them if you want one
[14:48] <Randomskk> (they are white pcbs!)
[14:50] <DanielRichman> :P maybe later. DO you think that the 12bit DAC would be good enough to produce NiM2 dominoex?
[14:50] <DanielRichman> (the 12bit DAC built into some of the other models)
[14:50] <Randomskk> no idea
[14:50] <Randomskk> wouldn't surprise me
[14:50] <Randomskk> I imagine it could, but I don't know for sure.
[14:53] <Randomskk> anyway bbl, supervision
[14:53] <DanielRichman> have fun :)
