So had a few teething problems again due to dropping frames and internet connection, but eventually got the stream going properly, I think I need to make sure I not only reset my system but also the internet connection prior to streaming in good time before hand..
Thanks to all those that hung on for the later start, for those that couldn't hang around you can catch up on Twitch
On the Stream I showed the ordered board layouts including an expansion board to help with testing both of which are currently in manufacture. I also talked about my development setup in preparation for the boards. The development setup includes a Kaluga development kit which I have made minor modifications to which was also discussed. I mentioned that we would be focusing the development effort initially on a python strategy fusing together nmigen and Circuit Python (CM) over straight micropython initially due to better ESP32-S2 support, catch the stream for details on this discussion. I have also promised to look into a specific issue around CM that @lawrie pointed out, I will investigate this further, I am sure we can overcome this limitation.
Here is a peek at the new layout I am working on for the new myStorm Alloy board, the naming is to hint at is nature of fusion of different elements (Von Neumann and Gateware) unified in an alloy.
Please let me know your thoughts..
Oh nearly forgot, currently this has a regular micro Usb what do folks think about this vs a USB-C?
