Sorry got a little waylaid in Linux stickiness. Also a little busy in personal, and business projects!
I am checking with Eric1 to see if we can expand the number of poll choices on the forum so we can have a Vote on the name for this project/group.
We seem to have lost the steam, and need to get it back up so we can chug!
I do know from listening to Teamspeak that the Janus project that Bill and Phil are working on is still making admirable progress. Even the repartee is fun to listen to!
I guess the Atlas and Lionheart are stalled at the moment.
Can you give us an update on the status of the Lionheart?
The Atlas is the glue piece, which make these and future projects with an FPGA heart really ‘run’. Since we have decided to build this buss card from scratch, how should we proceed? We have decided that it will be powered by an ATX power supply with a 24 pin (we have the connector). We have decided the general 100 mm form factor. We have decided 4 slots, which can be expanded at either end with right angle 96 pin connectors. We decided on 4 Layers. (Compromise in cost)
I’m really dying on the Atlas otherwise. How do we get from A to B with the current project boards and their needs? What information do we need to design the Atlas? What tools do we need?
