Again it’s time to say thank you to the VSCP project sponsors. Your support has been of more value for the project then I can express. This month there was some extra money in the sponsor transfer (I don’t know the origin for this money), a very generous amount. I will use this money for components for the new projects coming up after the the summer vacation. All free and open as always.
Thanks to the VSCP project sponsors (and partly (20%) an understanding wife) I was able to buy a new oscilloscope today. I have been without for many years now being more or less blinded electronically. So now I can see again. A big thank you to the VSCP project sponsors.
My goal has been to pickup and start to make the modules I sold before as soon as I can (people are actually still asking for them!). But at the moment it looks like I am the only one having IC’s and to few to do any larger “production” effort. Hopefully the chip shortage situation will be over soon so that this can be resolved.
btw the oscilloscope I bough was the 100MHz Hantek DSO20C10. This scope is available also as Hantek DSO20D15 which is 150MHz and have a waveform generator on board. Luckily my scope turned into a 150 MHz with a waveform generator after a little software hack. Same hardware apparently. Saving some (of my sponsors) money. Hurrah!
It has been a splendid week here. Most of the code for the level II node is in place, Next week I will take up where I left of with the VSCP Works qt work.
Have a nice weekend all of you out there, well at least those of you that read this… Well, everyone should of course.
Sometimes you walk and walk and still never seem to arrive at the destination. The development of the new VSCP Works is like that sometimes. It takes time.
There is working session handling and working configuration handling and almost working discovery. Next up is the bootloading.
So one day I will announce a release… maybe…
I currently work with some demo code that uses the VSCP tcp/ip link protocol on embedded hardware. I do an implementation of the level II protocol handling with it so there is a lib to use if someone wants to implement it. This work is needed for me to test full level II functionality in VSCP works . For me, to work on the low-level hardware again, is a real treat. Love it! That is the place where I enjoy life the most.
Summer is coming and I will be out of the office for vacation for most of Juli. I hope all of you reading this will have a very nice summer.
