Thank you, Tom.

Notes from PSWS / TangerineSDR call of 09-06-2021
1. Tom has been working on finding a FPGA runtime package for the MAX10 development board. Many of the packages have dead links to the source. Tom was able to (apparently / hopefully) find all the software for the Rocketboards package, and will try to get the binaries working on the Altera/Intel MAX10 development kit. There is one missing package for building embedded Linux, but it looks like GCC may have evolved enough in the intervening 5-8 years to perhaps be able to do this. If the binaries work well, then the effort can switch to extending the Verilog and embedded software as needed.
Two skillsets are probably needed: embedded Linux, and Verilog. This likely needs two different people. This package would then be ported to the Data Engine Ver. 1 when ready.
2. Scotty and Dave are working on test fixtures and software for the magnetometer production boards.
3. TAPR Digital Communication Conference (DCC) is in a week and a half - September 17 and 18.
