Greetings from the Pacific Northwest (USA)

Post by sbigelow900 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 7:19 pm

Hi All,

I'm going through a mid-life crisis. Instead of buying a new Camaro, I'm buying Arduino stuff! I'm EE trained and work for a major computer/printer company. I mainly stick to LED projects. I'm intrigued with the power of the STM modules. Bought a couple of Maple Mini clones off of Ebay (Baite clones) for about $3.50 and with Roger's awesome instructions, was able to get it running the first time I plugged it in! I hope to learn a lot here and contribute in time.

Welcome Scott,

Buying STM32 boards is going ti be a lot cheaper than a Camaro ;-)

I am not sure what sort of LED projects you are thinking of, but there are a few different libraries to drive addressable LED strips aka NeoPixels, includig one I wrote, however I dont think any of them are perfect.

Anyway, if you have an EE backrgound, I dont think you should have any problems, especially as you can already uoload to your Maole Mini boards
