Ciao to everyone!

First of all I wish introduce me.

I'm Francesco Alessi, and I'm the main developer of Arduino STAR OTTO. I have to say thanks to Roger for his work on maple, I started the development from his repo. I have also to say thanks to some ST guys, that supported (and still supporting) me during the development.
To reply to someone, not all of ST people know about OTTO, because this board is not a ST board (was developed with the support of ST), but is a pure Arduino.org board, designed, produced and developed in Italy ;) .

The code of OTTO is on the Arduino.org repository, in STM32F4 branch: https://github.com/arduino-org/Arduino/tree/stm32f4

I'm writing for two reason:
1) I wish to develop the code of OTTO with yours suggestion, because my idea is to have realy one board developed together, looking in the direction that you suggest, hoping to develop the code in the best way, and if you want with yours contributions.

2) If for you is a good idea, I will ask to my colleagues to open a specific section of Arduino Forum, to have an official place to gather all comments and suggestion (of course without leaving this beautiful place to discuss, which is a reference for all community of developers STM32). I wish to open the forum section because I'm able (I hope) to reply to your technical question, but not for other questions, and the forum is readed also from other guys that may know other answers.

I'm ready to reply to all of your questions!

Ciao to all!

Francesco.

Francesco

Is Arduino.org intending to make other STM32 boards?

I wonder if the best way to structure the forum is to Merge the Maple and Maple mini sections onto "Maple boards (and clones)" and add "Arduino.org boards" as a new section

Where are the replies then...?

Getting fed up with waiting for Arduino x or y to get their act together. The Chinese may have crap documentation and support, but at least they ship stuff without all the vaporware and general dicking about.

I am concerned that the history is repeating itself. Many moons ago, the Arduino Tre (from CC) was a similar board with a lot of features and high performance. This new Arduino Otto requires a huge software development before it is ready for prime time. In that sense I can understand the delay. What I don't like is the lack of communication. For example, I want to know

- when it will be available
- what will be the price
- what are the libraries

In this board, I like the F469. The ESP8266 is ok, but ESP8285 would have been better. If the design would start now, the ESP32 could be a viable alternative.

Cheers, Ollie

Hi All!
Sorry for silence, but I was really busy on Hardware revision of OTTO.
About some question you posted:

Price: I have no precise information

Availability: as soon as possible, I'm working Hard!

libraries: some code is on Arduino.org GitHub repository, is not a definitive code, but if you want you can give a look inside the code. Notes, suggestions and contributions are welcome!

The choice about ESP8266, is related to the fact we use the same chip in several boards like UNO WiFi and Primo.

for further information, please refer to Arduino.org web site.

Ciao.
Francesco.

Thanks Francesco

Did you manage to finish the SDIO library. I know some people were interested in your progress with this.

Thanks

Roger

How did you get it? looks like they are not for sale.

Did you test some sketches on it?
