Yesterday some new items have arrived, including the MIO-2260 Board, a small embedded computer which will be used as our Core System. Since today was the last exam for this semester, we’re looking forward to start implementing a first prototype of our operating system in the next few days, even if a few thermal and vacuum tests are still need to be done!
At our last meeting Piotr Lewkowicz from BEXUS project FREDE visited us to give some advice concerning mechanical and optical stuff, since we are thinking about using a “window” for the lens, to prevent hot gas inrush. This question will be discussed the next few days, so stay tuned for more information!
