Raffaella Radogna

Saad Shaikh

  • Successfully ported FPGA design to Nexys video.
    • Immediate minor improvement through built-in dedicated UART port on board, PMOD-USB adaptor no longer needed.
    • Will investigate ways to remotely set FSR and integration time without reconfiguration, latter will be more tricky.
  • Started investigating full USB 2.0 interface.
    • Using this tutorial.
    • Tutorial works but speed is slow – currently in touch with author who has suggested next steps.
  • Will visit UCL on 23/10/20 for further photodiode testing with Raffy.
  • Will be on holiday week of 26th Oct.

Fern Pannell

  • Meeting with Raffy earlier in the week to discuss the MSci project and literature review.
  • Currently writing the literature review.
    • First draft will be sent to Ruben, Raffy and Saad for some general feedback soon.
    • Will inform Simon of the progress once the first draft is complete.
  • Trouble with Student Finance and University fees currently (MSci/MSc conflict). Faculty and Department involved but prioritising efforts to resolve this right now.
