Team Vision for Detailed Design Phase
Detailed block diagrams of each sub system were created. Analysis and prototyping were performed where necessary to gain insight on the best solution. The team worked on completing schematics for all of the boards in the system.
DACQ/CBOB Detailed Design
The block diagram for the Data Acquisition Board (DACQ) is shown below.
The block diagram for the Cluster Breakout Board (CBOB) is shown below.

Bill of Material (BOM)
The budget we breakdown of the team that we are sticking to going forward is shown below:
The category "Other" is set aside for any unforseen costs going forward, and has been allocated to be ~20% of our total budget.
A portion of the high level BOM that contains most of the parts from the various subsystems is shown below.

The testplans that were created last phase were expanded upon for this phase. A document listing the test plans that will address all of the engineering requirements of the entire system can be found here. Test Plans
Design and Flowcharts
A block diagram of the entire system is shown below.
For the most part, there were no new risks identified for the project. The main thing we are keeping in mind going forward is making sure there is enough time set aside to writing and debugging the software.

Plans for next phase
We will test out fabricated boards. And get the hardware of the whole system working. Then, we will get the software working for the system.
A Gantt chart describing the schedule for the next phase of MSDI is included here: SF1 Schedule
Three-week plans for individual team members:
