archimedesmp: Hello from Saarland

Post by archimedesmp » Mon Jan 15, 2018 6:57 pm

Hi, okay, so, I'm a C.S. student. My first two blue pills are on their way from China to my place.
One will go into a DAC controller (based on what Dimitri did with his akduino firmware) which should also drive the VFD of the DACs enclosure (which is currently still a AM/FM tuner). PCB is designed, but probably needs some adaption to the actual MCU board.

The other is just for playing around, but since I'm thinking about building a 3D printer (+ UV laser module for PCB exposure) maybe that's going there to drive the whole thing. The other STM32 boards are just too expensive compared to a blue pill + motherboard (for RAMPS style drivers, SD card and some FETs) :/

archimedesmp, welcome! We have several German members in the forum.

The blue board is fairly well represented, second only to the Maple Mini ... well, it could actually be the #1 population at this time.

Good luck,
