17:41:35 From Jim Kresse : Will the slides be available? 17:42:58 From Phil Kasiecki : Thank you Frida! 17:43:24 From Piotr Kasprzyk, IETU, Poland : Is it possible to correct errors? 17:43:34 From Gabriel Aguilar Lemus : Thanks Frida! 17:44:19 From Jim Kresse : Will the slides be available? 17:44:55 From Enrico : Is there an optimal polynomial ? 17:46:06 From Stephane to Jim Kresse(Direct Message) : Hey Jim, yes we will try to make the slides available - but it could take a few days 17:46:26 From Steve Wheeler : I’ve used CRCs in embedded applications since the 1990s. About 25 years ago, I went through a couple pages of step-by-step CRC calculations to work out the shifts and logical operations to calculate byte-by-byte CRCs using only one 16-bit variable and about 18 machine instructions. 17:46:28 From Jacob Beningo : Yes, we will get the slides and post them 17:46:30 From Jim Kresse to Stephane(Direct Message) : I understand. Thanks! 17:46:53 From Jay Cosper : how do you decide the size/value of the polynominal? 17:50:30 From Enrico : cool - thanks guys! 17:50:34 From Gillian Minnehan : Thank you Frida! Great talk 17:50:42 From Glenn Kirilow : Thanks Frida, nicely done! 17:50:43 From Jay Cosper : thank you ! 18:06:32 From Stephane : Max went a bit over the 10 minutes limit ? 18:06:54 From Max Maxfield : Sneak!!! 18:15:12 From Glenn Kirilow : Haha, good thing you didn't run it as Just In Time. 18:21:35 From Michael Kirkhart : Actually, large consumer electronics companies are at the top of the food chain. The automotive companies got to learn this the hard way. 18:22:12 From Glenn Kirilow : Correct, it is just the current reality. 18:28:56 From Jay Cosper : I would think the toolchain differences are a huge hurdle. What do you think? 18:31:15 From Cole Wyant : FPGA tools are generally made with non software oriented EE's in mind. They all typically have a green play button at the top that do a standard build. 18:31:56 From Jay Cosper : Like popular SW tools IAR, Segger? 18:32:32 From Robert Hancock : It also depends on how many vendor-specific logic cores you are using. If you switch vendors, those won't come with you. 18:33:48 From Jay Cosper : open source FPGA tools are a ways away still 18:34:54 From Stephane : Thank you Glenn for waking so early for being with us 18:35:45 From Glenn Kirilow : You're welcome :) 18:46:30 From Piotr Kasprzyk, IETU, Poland : Are there special CPUs for Real time systems? 18:47:40 From Cole Wyant : What kind of resource impact does a real time database have? I have never heard of these before 18:53:19 From Leandro Pérez to Stephane(Direct Message) : Thanks Stephane… Today I have had many internet outages… And the page doesn't permit enter again 18:53:50 From Stephane to Leandro Pérez(Direct Message) : You can usually enter again but only for the first 30 minutes or so 18:54:06 From Frida Rojas : Thank you all \o/! Great discussion. 18:54:14 From Glenn Kirilow : Thanks all! 18:54:59 From Stephane to Leandro Pérez(Direct Message) : Thank you all!
