rjeffriesno, wpwrak I have not research the license. ;)00:20
kristianpaulrjeffries: sure we can run linux on that board, but will be cool on the milkymist soc00:27
wpwrakit's also microblaze, i.e., non-free.00:28
kristianpaulyeap00:28
kristianpauls/on/use00:28
kristianpaulwpwrak: do you know any sofyware for designing antennas?00:31
kristianpaulof course free :)00:31
wpwraknothing useful :-( there's some FORTRAN-era stuff out there. don't quite remember what it is called. but i think it's more for questions like "where do i put the antenna mast on my battlecruiser"00:33
qi-bot[commit] Xiangfu Liu: new pakcage: csound (BROKEN) (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/openwrt-packages/f500fb200:59
xiangfuwpwrak, I am try to merge all atben code to next release. the mmc driver and atben driver have to build as module. right?02:40
rejonwpwrak, can we get ben-wpan to read rfid/nfc?05:30

wpwraknice :)11:04
wpwrakrejon:  (rfid, etc.) naw, they all use different frequencies/modulations. a "universal" rf system would be kinda hard to make. even the USRP needs a set of frequency-specific daughterboards to cover most of the "interesting" range. and antennas would be even worse ... 11:06
rejonok, just checking11:06
rejoni'm meeting with a friend who makes rfid/nfc machines tomorrow in singapore11:07
rejonwill demo stuff11:07
wpwrakah, cool11:16
wpwraksome more RF expertise would always be good :)11:16
