You know how it can be sometimes. You’re working on one project, then it gets bumped by another. Sometimes that one gets bumped by a higher priority one. Your life is like a nested interrupt handler.
My latest project is moving my MSP430-based NFC reader over to the CC1310. It’s been competing with converting a garage into the noisy, smelly power tools and CNC side of my workshop setup.
I’m very pleased to tell you than something more urgent had come up that has stalled these two. Rohde & Schwarz have asked me (via Element14) to road test one of their latest oscilloscopes – the incredible RTM3004. Even better, I get to keep it afterwards. This is a high end 1GHz 4 channel ‘scope with a 16 channel logic analyser, signal and pattern generator, spectrum analyser and loads of other features.
As you can imagine I feel obliged to put a reasonable amount of effort into this, although to do it in a fair and unbiased way. I’ve already started but I expect to spend at least another month of my free time on it. Stay tuned for the results which will appear on full over on Element14 but have a summary and link here too.
