Just a note to let you know that after many weeks of work I have finally
managed to get the DVB-S encoding moved into the FPGA. This offloads
about 60% of the processing from the host to the FPGA and will allow
me to use a Raspberry PI with Express.
I am hoping to have a demonstration transceiver based on the PI and Express
ready in time for CAT14 in September. The system will use MPEG4 video.
The video will be captured with the PI's webcam and the audio with a
Wolfson sound board. For receive I plan to use a USB DVB-S dongle.
In the process I will also provide a module to allow Express to be used
with the MK808 standalone system pioneered by Rob M0DTS.
I was going to post something about MyriadRF but I had a problem with
the batteries in my camera so that will have to wait until another day.
