Blue Pill with nicer silk screen PCB

Post by Kenjutsu » Mon Jan 09, 2017 4:57 pm

I ordered 5 of these Blue Pills: Free Shipping STM32F103C8T6 ARM STM32 Minimum System Development Board Module Forarduino and the silk screen on the PCB is more "readable" than the other ones I've seen. boot 0/1 clearly marked as well as SWD connectors at bottom.

I haven't tested the boards, except for applying power and see the green LED blink :lol:

Does it have the correct 1.5 kohm D+ pullup?

nice
btw, another small question on ordering these. For me starting at 3 boards, the shipping is no longer free as they switch to another shipping method. What do you guys do? just go with it, or make multiple small orders? (i've been testing out the latter, seems to work XD)
You can do it pretty quickly by just ordering it, and when you have to pay, don't pay yet, but make some more of those orders :). In the end you can go to your order list, see all the orders that haven't been paid yet, and pay them all at once :).
It quickly adds to the price of these little boards.

I make multiple small orders. At the end I became the goods all in one packet :)

Does it really have a 2 wing usb connector and no notch in the board or is the picture not accurate?

Yup, just like in the picture. When I ordered them, I didn't pay close attention to the pictures. :?

When you make a single order greater then $5 (I think) AliExpress requires that the postage method must be tracked, which is more expensive. Many listings request that you make multiple small orders instead of one large order for this reason.
