Re: Search for power supply chip

I though I had the path set as a project specific variable and have been saving everything in the one folder but maybe not properly... will research what I have done wrong... I haven't contacted infineon about the eval board but probably should. L1 is based on the recommended starting point for indu...

Re: Search for power supply chip

Will sort out the BOM later today. Caveats and disclamers before you order... I have used small footprints with the intention that this will be assembled and reflowed in a skillet or oven. Not really sure how this would be integrated into an ecu so all the pin headers might not suit you. Would be be...

Re: 20x4 LCD usefulness ideas?

RadMx5 these are amazing proposals and how did you make these cool pictures? :) Would like to know this also... I have previously made an arduino based dash using the same 20x4 display taking data from a Wolf ECU via the serial port. It had a few buttons so you could scroll pages and do a few other...

Re: Search for power supply chip

Re: Search for power supply chip

Kicad files for this can be found here https://github.com/kneelo/rusefi/tree/master/hardware/TLF35584%20breakout At the moment its a partially completed schematic. Footprints are associated but may not be correct. I think the pins on the symbol for the main chip are identified incorrectly as I get a...

Re: Search for power supply chip

Yep kicad 5.0.2 as you worked out. Made the switch recently when i had some eagle files i had to work with... that bit works great and nothing else appears to have broken so happy with it so far. It would appear the wake/enable signals control it primarily but i need to have another look at the data...

Re: Search for power supply chip

I like the features of the TLF35584 chip so have added it to my hardware (third major power supply change so far before finishing the draft). I have put the draft of the power supply on github (hopefully)... feedback welcome. I have borrowed the protection arrangement from frankenso and added it to ...

Re: rusEfi Use Scenarios for Next Hardware Iteration

I think the PnP solution using the factory connector is too hard to achieve for a broad range of cars and would detract from effort that could be used improving or upgrading the base hardware. To my mind having a universal ecu with flexibility in term of features that can be populated and using an u...

Re: 22mm Manhattan

What is the ACTUAL use case for having on-board modularity? Once the main board has a standard set of functionality to run a fuel injected, spark ignition engine (not DI, not diesel), I don't see a need for additional hardware outside of us (developers) prototyping new features. Agree with this... ...

Re: let's choose an enclosure

Not sure about enclosures but the connectors should be superseal 1.0 as used by motec, haltech and probably other aftermarket ECUs . They are compact, robust and easy to repin.

MC33810 Injector and Ignition driver

Any thoughts on use of a MC33810 IC to driver the injectors ignition outputs. These chips drive 4 high impedance injectors directly and are a pre-driver for IGBT's to drive 4 ignition coils. I like the idea of this as it provides protection to these outputs as well as fault feedback useful for diagn...

Hi from Southwest Western Australia... I'm very keen to get involved and have a go at building a new ECU and dash for my track car using RusEFI when i get some time. I have done a bit of PCB design so am thinking about jumping in at the deep end and having a go at designing something like the Promet...

Re: Prometheus - NEW compact ECU shield!

Would also be very keen to get a hold of the schematic and pcb files for this. Tried to import the pcad schematic into kicad but no luck.

Very nice work by the way...
