DMX library for maple mini clone ?

Post by timmead » Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:07 pm

Just wondering if anyone has successfully implemented a DMX slave using a Maple Mini clone ? I have used Conceptinetics library on a Nano, but the project needs more pins and processor speed to be able to run smooth stepper motion with small microsteps on multiple steppers.

I've seen various threads about needing to delve into the the 'core'. Being somewhat of a novice, this is a little scary, as all of my coding to data has been using Nano and Mega boards to control simple test instruments, gather data and communicate over RS232 / RS485 / USB using my own code and libraries such as the great Accelstepper.

It appears that the DMX libraries I've found all rely on features of the 328p to function, and at least one uses the internal eeprom, which the Maple doesnt have. The DMX slave implementation is not complex, once I've actually managed to read the data !
