Current State:

  • Network:
    • one broken CX4 10GbE (from PDFB3 to switch)
    • vagaries of networking table sorted out with ping
  • DFB3:
    • 512/256 MHz divided into 16 x 32/16MHz
    • 4-bit sampling
    • polyphase filterbank getting better
    • automatic gain control communication channel tested
