mithromorning Bertl :)05:13
Bertlthanks! how's going?05:47
mithroBertl: writing PR announcements at the moment :(05:47
Bertlah, that surely is fun ...05:48
mithroBertl: unsure how my hobby became a job? :-P05:48
mithroBertl: but we reached our first stretch goal on the crowd funding campaign, so that is pretty awesome!05:57
Bertlcongratulations! for sure it is awesome! glad we are part of it!06:04
mithroBertl: did you find a 12V power supply?06:28
Bertlas I said, I have a bunch of bench top supplies, so no worries there06:41

mithro_florent_: ping? When you get a moment, I'd like to flash the EEPROM on your board so that it comes up as a Numato Opsis board09:49
_florent_Hi Tim09:50
_florent_what do I need to do for that?09:51
mithro_florent_: Your on Linux right?09:52
_florent_ISE is installed on a windows machine...09:52
_florent_but I can use a Linux machine for flashing09:53
_florent_unrelated, but is it possible now to use the Cypress FX2 as a UART bridge?09:54
mithro_florent_: yes09:55
_florent_I can use the firmware in firmware/fx2 for that?09:55
mithro_florent_: switching between the different modes is not as reliable as I would like yet, I need to fix that09:55
Bertlbtw, why was the Cypress FX2 chosen (instead for example a two or four port FTDI)?09:59
mithroBertl: it was on the Atlys board we were using for development and can appear as almost any device under the sun (including as the two or four port FTDI devices)10:00
Bertlwell, then I suggest to simply configure it as four port FTDI and you don't need any mode switching10:01
mithroBertl: in HDMI2USB mode it appears as a USB WebCam and a CDC-Serial port10:03
Bertlfair enough, I forgot about the WebCam part10:22

*** omega_red has quit IRC10:29
mithroBertl: yeah - eventually the board should boot in JTAG+Serial mode if you hold down the switch while booting, otherwise boot up in WebCam+Serial mode if you don't11:03
mithroBut that requires someone (probably me) to finish a bunch of things11:04
mithrohey xfxf11:04
mithroGot a moment to chat?11:04
mithro_florent_: btw did you see my "opsis-fixes" branch?11:09
mithroxfxf: You see the private message?11:23
mithroBertl / seaLne: I'm slowly getting more information about the design up in the manual at
tpbTitle: Numato Opsis : Numato Opsis Developer Manual (at
Bertlmithro: okay11:25
mithroBertl: please do report if you find bugs / incorrect information / etc11:25
mithroBertl: or submit pull requests :)11:25
Bertlmithro: personal request (as last time), please add PDFs for schematics11:26
mithroBertl: can you log an issue on the repo at otherwise I'm going to keep forgetting11:28

mithroHi G33KatWork!11:46
mithroI assume you Andreas from the C3VOC?11:46
G33KatWorknot exactly C3VOC, but yes11:46
Bertlmithro: done11:47
G33KatWorkmithro: i'm not part of the VOC itself, but I know most of the guys personally11:47
mithroG33KatWork: the other people in this room who has Opsis boards are _florent_, seaLne, Bertl and myself IIRC11:47
mithroG33KatWork: derpter said you had some FPGA experiance?11:49
G33KatWorkyes, i doo11:49
mithroG33KatWork: cool!11:49
G33KatWorki'm not a super pro, but i'm getting better11:49
mithroG33KatWork: there are setup instructions for the HDMI2USB firmware at but they assume you have an Atlys board11:50
tpbTitle: HDMI2USB-misoc-firmware/scripts at master · timvideos/HDMI2USB-misoc-firmware · GitHub (at
G33KatWorkmithro: i'll be able to adapt there, no worries11:50
BertlG33KatWork: hello from the apertus AXIOM project here :)11:51
G33KatWorkBertl: heh, hi! that stuff is also lying around. :( need to kick darthrake to allocate a few more weekends to make the sensor finally talk to our zynq board properly ;)11:52
mithroG33KatWork: Bertl is working on apertus which is an open source video camera, I won't be surprised if you guys end up using them for your events eventually11:52
mithroG33KatWork: ahh - you are already familiar with them :)11:52
G33KatWorkyeah, a friend of mine had the idea to build a stereo cam using a zynq and the cmosis 2k chip11:53
G33KatWorkwe have an fmc-card and a pcb with the sensor on a zedboard11:53
Bertlthis idea was born after we spent some time at EHSM presenting "our" projects11:54
G33KatWorkbut no working fpga core yet to get pixel data out of the chip, darthrake tried to adapt the axiom-core and eventually gave up and the effort died down a bit. we agreed on the camp to try again soon, but didn't get around to do it yet11:55
Bertlwe should have a cmv2k frontend soon (the first early betas are getting ready)11:56
Bertlthat might make it simpler for you folks ...11:56
G33KatWorkoh, nice11:57

G33KatWorkdo you guys already have passive adapter-boards from displayport to pcie? i suppose that's something that needs to be custom, because it most certainly violates the pcie- as well as the displayport-spec :D20:10
