Slightly offtopic, what's the max speed at which you overclocked the i2c interface?
I was just testing and I can go up to 1.3Mhz. Over that either it slows down, or directly stops working.
i got up to 1.2Mhz, and then it stopped working for me (not sure if the stm32 or the DAC was the issue)

Re: RGB lightsaber

currently both will be a bit underwhelming XD. the current source code is just setting up everything and doing basic tests (playing some music, using the motion sensor to light the led when the board moves, doing a test pattern on a few leds). This is enough to know it all works, but not much of a p...

Re: SMD hot tweezers (AOYUE T004)

have also looked into them, but the ones fitting on my aoyue station seem to be hard to find >_<

Re: Kicad

This week i have been working in KiCad (making new revision of my saber board ^^. hopefully the final one :) ). And i may be starting to feel the opensource side of KiCad a bit >_<. I used to work in 4.04, had 4.06 now. What i'm not so sure about is if anything changed in switching between tools in ...

Re: SPI Query about PA4, real or a non-issue

iirc, it's if you use it via the SPI peripheral, it supports managing its own SS pin, but that is bugged. But if you declare it as a normal output, and just toggle it yourself, it's ofcourse no problem at all.

Re: STM32F103CBT6 BOOT Problem

If i read his schematic correctly, doesn't he pull boot0 down? so shouldn't it just work? (as the state of boot1 doesn't matter when boot0 is pulled down)

Re: SD / Memory bottleneck, any ideas?

I thought SDIO was the best way to improve performance, but its not available on the Blue pill , and libmaple does not have a built in library for it. Though I thought there was at least one thread on SDIO There is one SDIO for F4. I have looked at it and should be faily straight forward to convert...
