What Happiness Sounds Like…

My work on the passive buzzer had entered its 4th week. I did not like that 4 weeks means a month. When days become weeks, and weeks become…

Sending & Writing The Bitstream

Eighth week. Slow. I did not manage to implement HOTP nor SSL. My cryptography knowledge is weak. I had a ton of studying to do and even more still. As for…

Time is Never Enough

I thought taking few days off the week would leave me regretting for my work productivity as the time spent would not be enough. However, this week went…

The Light That Lights My World

On Monday, I was almost done with the design code for my first module, a 7 colour auto flash LED. I chose this module to start with as…

The Board Works

I was stucked with my work when I could not program the board as I wanted. I made a program of LED blinking and LED being turned on…

It Has Arrived

This week the board finally arrived and immediately I noticed that the ethernet jack was missing after notifying Dr. Shawn I then started testing the board with an…

Schematics Completed

This week I spent most of my time finishing up the schematics. The updated board will have 2 complete SPI and 1 complete UART connection, between the PIC32…

Power Supply & Clocking

I started the week by looking at alternative power supply designs. The problem with the current design is that it utilizes 2 bulky linear voltage regulators. There are…

Start PCB Design

This week, after some more reading about the board and the connections and also some more reading on PCB design, I started using Kicad. Which is a very…

Third Week

This week which is my third, here at Aeste, was more about reading and understanding the current board. I started the week by redoing the Board Architecture that…

SDCard Working and Integration

By SD card working as stated in the title, I actually meant that it has only successfully established a connection to the SD card, and is far from being…

Proceeding to SD card

After successfully integrating the FPGA code with ethernet and USB serial, I proceeded to create a test firmware to establish and verify a connection with a micro SD…

Successful integration of FPGA project

The FPGA project has been succesfully integrated into the current project containing the usbcdc and ethernet. Now the test firmware has working ethernet, usb serial port, and also…

Integrating the Projects

This week I started by trying to modify the FPGA code so that it would transfer in chunks of data rather than all in one go. Turns out…

FPGA now working

The FPGA is now configurable using the pic32mz. The cause of the problem was identified as being the clock to the FPGA not being set, and also the ucf…
