Re: STM32F3 Discovery board support

I need a hardware audio DAC. Don't know if any F1 chip has it, but certainly no F1 mini-board that I've seen. There is a dozen of 103s having dual channel 12bit DAC, from RC up and with larger packages.. Even the old F1VLDiscovery got a dual channel 12bit DAC. Is that the "audio DAC" you ...

Re: STM32F3 Discovery board support

FYI - in addition to a typical 72MHz F4: Ultra-fast comparators (25 ns) Op-amp with programmable gain 12-bit DACs Ultra-fast 12-bit ADCs with 5 MSPS (Million Samples Per Second) per channel (up to 18 MSPS in Interleaved mode) Precise 16-bit sigma-delta ADCs (21 channels) Core Coupled Memory SRAM (Ro...

IoT and Sigfox

Hi, is there any practical experience with Sigfox and related hw (ie modems, etc.)?

Re: Need advise on logic analyser

FYI - the OLSniffer started 2009 or 2010, with a firmware for the pic (the communication between FPGA and PC), with initial version of the bitstream for FPGA (Sump protocol?), and an SUMP client (I never used it). Then, a group of enthusiastic experts, started to develop a new FPGA bitstream, and a ...

Re: Need advise on logic analyser

The FPGA based LAs work fine. All >50Msps LAs today work FPGA-way. See my post above - Logic Sniffer (OLS) - that is an FPGA 200Msps based LA. Important part of an FPGA based LA is the verilog/vhdl FPGA frontend ("FPGA bitstream") and the PC backend ("client sw"). They are openso...

Re: HELP - STM32F103 board as simple interface ?

Or to measure the input voltage with the ADC and then a PWM driven mosfet transistor, acting as V->R converter. Calibrated via stm32 code. Three lines of code :) .. v = analogRead(ANx); r = convert_v_to_r(v); // left to the reader as an exercise analogWrite(PBx, r); .. Example only: PWM to R convert...

Re: Need advise on logic analyser

Try to watch the 18MHz SPI transactions with a 24MHz sampling rate.. Or 36MHz SPI.. ;)
Of course, for watching 115k2 uart or 400kHz I2C the 24MHz sampling is ok.

Re: Need advise on logic analyser

24MHz is quite a low sampling rate. Today 100MHz is a minimum.
This could be an interesting option (around $67 at aliexpress).

Not tested, however.

Re: Update program with SD card

In case you run the programs off the sram or off the external sram it works (see my topic).
Otherwise you need a bootloader with a built-in functionality of reading the sdcard and flashing the new code into the flash.

Re: Need advise on logic analyser

FYI: I am using the rather old, simple, but cheapest $50 (16ch, 200MSps)
https://www.seeedstudio.com/preorder-op ... l?cPath=75
with
https://github.com/jawi/ols
PC front end.

You must update firmware (pic and fpga to the latest), needs some effort, however.
