Hey, that's very understandable. I'm btw often direct myself, and can at times come across as blunt too - no time for bullshit, eh?AndreyB wrote: ↑Fri Aug 14, 2020 3:36 pmThis is a very worrisome statement.
My preference is to be blunt here: this concludes my availability for guidance for this this project. I have very limited resources and a large new board would not help me in any way while drain too much of those limited resources. I am happy to join the party once the party would be adding something on top of the existing foundation. See you on Slack!
I glanced rather quickly over the Proteus sch and STM32 datasheet, so i found out about the Native USB at a later point after spilling the beans, lol. Direct USB is already implemented into the design. I guess it was too quick to assume the FTDI alternative given the TS support through the D2XX driver option..
I completely understand, but hopefully I won't require much of the communitys (or your) time/effort while doing the actual board design.
I would probably ask for a few nudges in the right direction once I'm ready to upload the firmware for the first time though, unless I'm able to execute based on the info that's already on this forum in various threads - I'll sure give it a try. Hopefully, it wont be more complicated than using the already existing Proteus firmware package and adhere to procedure on the first revision due to the fact that I'm going for the same MCU pinout.
The only new stuff I'm adding to "our" table is the non-CJ125 WBO2 controller which might be beneficial for some to incorporate into the RusEFi firmware and in time their own designs. I'll start wrapping my head around that once the hardware is done and ready for testing/tweaking.
I'm also planning on doing a separate thread on that with schematics and maybe a "how to"-kinda' approach implementing the firmware side of things. Hopefully that could be a team effort with someone in the community who's up to speed with coding on this plattform, and might also be of help for those like me that have some experience in general coding, but lack the specific skills and find it a bit daunting to start coding on a new plattform. After all, that's one of my goals for this project; to make the step from 8-bit C on Microchip MCUs to the 32-bit C/C++ STM plattform.
If such threads already exist, I'm happy for a heads-up.
I'll keep things to this thread onwards, but might make another one once the hardware is finished and ready.
Hopefully, someone can chime in along the way with some quick hints if I have questions or get stuck.
Thanks for the feedback
