lekerneli've been also working on http://www.ohwr.org/attachments/714/tdc_v2.pdf lately13:15
mwalleno more verilog? :)13:24
mwalleand what input signals are you measuring?13:25
lekernelwell, they wanted VHDL13:27
lekernelif they asked me, I'd probably have given MyHDL a try13:27
lekernelwell, probably some particle accelerator related signal :-) but you can do anything, LIDARs for example are cool13:29
mwalleah cool :)13:31
lekernelit was a project contract from them; and they will release it under LGPL13:31

wpwrakhmm, so that's code and data to generate the video clip ? (i don't know the video)20:10
lekernelwhat makes it more interesting is they have used this thing to acquire the data http://www.velodyne.com/lidar/hdlproducts/hdl64e.aspx20:14
wpwrak"The HDL-64E's patented one-piece design" sigh.20:15
lekernelyeah well20:21
lekernelmore often than not, new technology isn't open20:22
wpwrakthat's one deplorable thing. the other is that "patented" is used as if it conveyed a positive connotation.20:24
wpwrakwell, there were probably times when it was quite fashionable to praise the large quantity of slaves a business possessed, so ...20:24
lekernellinux is a copy of unix, git is a copy of bitkeeper, etc. and outside the little world of software, the situation is so awful rms does not want to look20:25
lekernelI tend to send this link http://totallyabsurd.com/ to people who believe 'patented' means 'good' :-)20:25
lekernelall the patents on this site that I checked are real :)20:26
wpwrak... you're (physically) a copy of your parents, ... without copying, there's no life. kinda weakens the whole "copying is evil" argument :)20:26
wpwrak(totallyabsurd) the ads on the page add a bit of a surreal touch :)20:28
wpwrakwell, a patent on a device of dubious utility. i'm somehow not very worried about these :)20:29
wpwrakof course, the inventor of the wheel may have been ridiculed quite a bit, too ... ;-)20:30
