Re: ST-Link Vs Jlink

maybe also interesting for this topic: the ST-Link has less capabilities, but is there anything you miss out on by not going for a J-Link? i'm currently using an ST-Link for debugging etc... and can't imagine what another device could offer extra. so i think part of the answer is: go for whichever o...

Re: RGB lightsaber

Well done! thanks :) now back to improving my software for the board :) did some test in mixing multiple soundchannels, and it was a bit slow. So now rewriting that part (now working with the i2s in a circular dma loop, and using the xfer half complete & xfer complete interrupts to fill in parts of...

Re: F405 & F411 versions of the BluePill

btw, concerning the buttons Squonk, i like the small buttons you linked... but can't find them anywhere on aliexpress or ebay (okay, i could find them from 1 seller at a ridiculously high price more than 1€ a piece) Can we maybe find some buttons that are small enough and that can easily be sourced...

Re: F405 & F411 versions of the BluePill

what i also like about the overhang is an easy place to route the 5v around the entire board, and it's easy having these edges where the fill zones can easily go to, when designing the board it made getting the planes get everywhere on the board a lot easier. i was also doubting keeping them, but bo...

Concerning the dual supply: if we don't go for a dual supply, can someone draw me a schematic of what we would replace it by?

Re: F405 & F411 versions of the BluePill

Re: 50 mm long board and components in bottom of board I think with too many constraints, the board is going to take months to design and may never get produced. Perhaps move as many as possible to the top without wasting hours of time and potentially adding conflicts to the PCB tbh, personally i s...

Re: RGB lightsaber

found some time to assemble the above boards :) looking pretty good :). when doing a full test however i had to put an extra capacitor on the 3v3 rail since the sd card managed to pull enough current to restart the stm32 >_< besides that, everything seems to be working (i still have to test usb, but...

Re: F405 & F411 versions of the BluePill

So, current things we haven't fully figured out yet if i'm following the thread correctly (must admit i currently am not reading every post in the greatest detail ^^'): - try to make the pcb with all components on 1 side (even though i haven't got confirmation yet that it will make a worthwhile pric...
