-A successfully presentation

I would have to say that the presentations went well. The module worked flawlessly as we thought it would. The only down side is that we felt that our presentation was not flashy enough. It did however show the purpose well (even though no one seemed to know what a valve block was).

-Jon's streak of all nighters

In order to create a PCB in time for alberta printed circuits to make it Jon worked really hard. About 4 in the morning on the thursday before the presentation we got our gerber files out the door and the PCB was on its way. Now the day before the presentation we have a nice fully operational Prototype on a PCB. This project is COMPLETE!

-Firmware and Software Progress

Well as they say "When it rains it pours". After a couple weeks of worrying about being able to get the project done because of the firmware, driver and ultimately API problems, we have got all of it mostly done. It's now a mad rush to create a PCB and touch up the firmware. As for what we did to make our project work? Well we found some better example software and switched to using a generic HID driver that comes with windows. Currently a basic system runs and runs well. Touch ups on the firmware include making sure the power requirements are met and adding some additional functionality.

-Driver Development

Currently I am working on the driver. This is not as easy as I had hoped. Most of the documentation and examples are for bulk and isocronous transfer types. Currently I am using a software suit by a company called B-squared. The driver development kit helps you in allot of areas but it also comes with some good documentation so that you can learn more about general driver creation.

-Web site

I have Just updated the web site so that it looks nice and so that we can post our documents and schedule. I hope to be posing news here as often as I can through the creation of the USB modules.
