@Menga i would opt for the 'less waste' and cheaper cells option ;)
do you think that using 16 cells instead of 8 would be also possible with the same pcb?

We would like to experiment with DIY carbon fiber casting, the process is highly manual and requires a cast negative first (which could be CNC milled or maybe even 3d printed). If someone is interested in pursuing these tests we should have a chat.

We cannot mill magnesium in our CNC as it is highly flammable. So its not just the cost of the material but having production outsourced entirely. Combine that with low volume manufacturing and you will find prices to be totally astronomically I am afraid... :)

There is still airflow if the fan is on, it circulates internally. Magasinating, or loading, whatever thermal capacity there is there.
If the dissapation air-alu-air is good enough, then maybe.

Did you think it possible to add a "weatherproof membrane" at the top of the fan. The idea is to protect a minimum from rain, dust or snow (or coffee) but in the same time keep the camera can breathable.

The problem is that the Zynq overheats before anything else in the camera even gets warm if there is no airflow or circulation.

Well not if you use it as a still camera for just a quick image. Or if you are outside in cold weather.
But yes, so if you "always" have to remove the lens, is it still not a better solution?

Menga added a comment to T736: Battery System.

One question though is if voltage measurement alone is enough to evaluate battery capacity/health.
I know laptop batteries for example monitor all currents going in and out over the entire battery lifetime and account for any aging phenomenons of the cells.

Laptop batteries don't actually do that, they have something that is almost planned obsolecence. For example, Dell uses a microcontroller that counts cycles anr/or usage hours, but not for each charger, they count the entire life of the cells as a whole (all of them in the pack). When a certain prefix limit is reach, the micro tells the computer, and the computer refuses to charger the battery.
So is a "safe life" protection. The battery may be fine, but because they want to avoid a lawsuit if something happens they just block the battery after a a few cycles/hours.

Mon, Sep 25, 1:04 PM · AXIOM Beta Hardware
sebastian added a comment to T736: Battery System.

+1 from me for moving the entire logic, DC/DC conversion and measurement electronics into a separate module and the cells with minimal protection-only circuit to another separate module.

Menga added a comment to T736: Battery System.

Well, you can make a led status without a PIC or any microcontroller. we could desing a status around a vumeter IC, like the LM3915., with the press of a button it will tell you the state of charge.
The advantage of an analog state will be 0 current drain. Because you only read the battery when you press the button.

christophvarga added a comment to T736: Battery System.

@Menga i like your design approach. does the hight and width (-the space for the hdmi/sdi connectors) match exactly to the backside of the beta enclosure? what about separating the cells in two groups and have one or two screws in the middle instead of having them on the sides. in that case we could also allow the package to be mounted under the camera and still be abel to mount it on a tripod. does 21700 cells also fit inside?

Does it need a 'PIC' to have status LED's directly on the battery? that is something which is really useful (checking batteries when they are somewhere in the pocket..)
What are the extra costs going for the more complex battery design? We can have different battery capacities so that you won't need to own more than two batteries.
