I.C. Tester

This was on HAD, and reminded me of a similar gadget I had years ago (which came as a DIY kit for an ISA card for a Windows 95 PC from memory).

I wonder how easy it would be to port to the STM32F103XX

Re: "WAVGAT" black pill pull up resistor

On the plus side, the delivery was reasonably quick, and they look well made, and very cheap. :D I might order a couple.

Re: STM32F1/F4 3d Printer board. Worth a kickstarter?

I can't think of any reason why a better faster processor on machines with six or more dimensions of freedom (X, Y, Z, Extrusion or cutting rate, Time, Temperature at the bare minimum) would not benefit from a more capable processor, so the basic idea of using an STM32FXXX is sound. Adding more vari...

Re: STM32F1/F4 3d Printer board. Worth a kickstarter?

If you get the right supplier, then in theory you can build it for the same or less than the cost price (as opposed to the approx $20 retail price) of those melzi clones. If we assume the cheap Melzi clone is making someone between 20 and 50%, then back of a fag packet calculations suggests build co...

Re: STM32F1/F4 3d Printer board. Worth a kickstarter?

Also worth bearing in mind is the bottom line. What could you realistically expect to make per board. You are competing against the likes of the cheap $25 Melzi clones for peoples attention. You either need to beat them on price, or add some extra magic to stand out from the crowd. Faster, more accu...

Re: Alvin: 'stm32flash' is not recognized..

Once upon a time a long time ago, I discovered norton antivirus Windows to be so intrusive that I'd consider it as almost a virus.
Subsequently I decided I'd treat it as such,usually a full re-install I replace it with Linux.

;) Sorry... couldn't resist.
