Subject: Stochmon? 

It turns out that we don't have all the parts I would need to do a full prototype of the precision temperature controller. I am guessing that we won't want to sit around and wait for the parts given the upcoming TAC meeting, so I'll do the next best thing:

  • Standard DC temperature readout using an AD590.
  • More-or-less complete heater driver

Does anyone have a suggestion for how this thing will be packaged? I.e., should it be in a box or should it be mounted in a rack, etc. In the end, a real board will be printed and stuffed, so this need not be a really professional job in the short term.



Is there an update on Stochmon?  Are the signals acquired somewhere already?  What's the current deal-io?  The new EOM mount should be here later today, and I'm jazzed to start checking how my EOM box helps (hopefully) the amount of RFAM we see. 

I'll start making the adapter plate while I wait...
