After another round of bridged traces, the stereo cameras finally returned video. The target output is only a single LED at 70fps instead of greyscale at 5fps, but greyscale is useful for testing.
Those last bridged traces were fiendish, with pressure on the board & flux remover causing some shorts above the resistance threshold of the continuity tester. The SPI cam has an excessively high error rate. It's independent of clockspeed or cable losses. What a rough design, compared to an FPGA.
In other news, got some shuttle footage.
Didn't know if the bridge would be fogged in, so shot video of it flying over M.M.'s former territory. The bridge ended up being the premier location & this ended up being almost the worst location. We had an F-15 escort, while LA had some F-18's.
