12:11 PM Tom_itx is now known as Tom_L
03:37 PM skunkworks: pcw_home: could you make or do you have a mx3660 config for the 7i92 that just uses the a channel?
04:00 PM pcw_home: "A" channel of encoder?
05:07 PM skunkworks: pcw_home: yes - I just need it as a counter
05:31 PM skunkworks: for velocity - spindle signal
05:49 PM pcw_home: do you want index?
05:53 PM skunkworks: no.
05:54 PM pcw_home: ok guessed as much, building now
05:55 PM Tom_L: nothin like on demand bit files.... bet mach doesn't do that :)
05:57 PM skunkworks: it is pretty awesome
05:58 PM skunkworks: I am short on i/o with this thing and was wondering why the counter was counting up and down.. (home swith on and off) ;)
05:59 PM skunkworks: b channel
05:59 PM Tom_L: heh
05:59 PM pcw_home: http://freeby.mesanet.com/7i92_mx3660x2aod.bit
06:00 PM pcw_home: ultimately I should probably get the spindle encoder supported
06:00 PM pcw_home: it would solve this issue also
06:01 PM pcw_home: (full encoder on the second connector)
06:04 PM skunkworks: awesome - thanks

06:18 PM skunkworks: hm2/hm2_7i92.0: IO Pin 013 (P2-10): Encoder #0, pin A (Input)
06:18 PM skunkworks: hm2/hm2_7i92.0: IO Pin 014 (P2-11): IOPort
06:18 PM skunkworks: hm2/hm2_7i92.0: IO Pin 015 (P2-12): IOPort
06:19 PM skunkworks: hm2/hm2_7i92.0: IO Pin 016 (P2-13): IOPort
06:19 PM skunkworks: perfect!
06:43 PM andypugh: I had this idea for an Amazon AWS with a web interface and the build tools that would make any bitfile on-demand. I even set up the build environment on an AWS and then, well, got distracted by actual metal things.
06:43 PM andypugh: Like a Robo-Pete :)
06:44 PM Tom_L: aww, we don't want to make him obsolete :(
07:54 PM pcw_home: Ha! I think I'm already there...
