This week started with the midpoint demo, which worked relatively well, showing mainly the real-time visualization shown in one of the previous updates. During the remainder of the week significant progress was made in several areas, particularly the network driver, which was previously impeding progress on the processing software.
Some progress on the hardware was also made (see John’s update), with the first board getting several microphones populated, tested, and hooked up to the FPGA. With this, we have finally moved from proof-of-concept tools, and started using the final hardware-firmware-software stack. Though these parts will of course be modified, at this point, there is no longer anything entirely new to be added.
