Vacation over, new boards on the way

The project moves forward. For the last couple of months we’ve kept busy finalizing the design of the instrument, trying to minimize noise and pickup of unwanted signals. We currently have two sets of boards being manufactured, which should hopefully arrive fully assembled in about a month. We’ve also had a much-needed vacation right in the middle of the current heat wave 😅

One of the boards currently being manufactured. Rendered via KiCAD.

Next up is providing more accurate mass, center-of-mass and moment of inertia measurements to PTScientists. We’re also working on finalizing the data format, since that decides how much bandwidth we need. So far it’s looking like around 200 B/s while the instrument is running. We can probably cut that down with some compression, at the cost of increased latency. Possibly more on that in a future post.
