  • STM32F407-DISCOVERY SDIO tests.

    • Started a new project (includes StdPeriph 1.3.0). Repository can be found  here.
    • First commit makes it simply output a “Init” text on the debug console (i.e. on USART1).
    • Browsing StdPeriph. Seems that stm32f4xx_sdio.[ch] are very low level (I’ve read SD card spec version 2.0).
    • Higher level stuff seems to be in StdPeriph here:

  • A chaotic post on HID keyboard. STM32F407 success, STM32F105 fail

    This is a quick dev-log post on my latest design, which was only partially successful. I have STM32F407-DISCOVERY board on which I successfully implemented a HID keyboard with only one keyboard. At first it reported that ‘a’ key was pressed every time user pressed the blue button, then, according to my plan I changed this to play/pause button, which can turn music on and of. It works under Linux and Windows (only ‘a’ version tested under win though). Then I decided to make a board for this and, since F407 is quite expensive, in fact too expensive for simple one-key keyboard, I decided to use something simpler. The slowest and cheapest µcros that support STM32_USB-Host-Device_Lib are those labeled as “connectivity line” i.e. STM32F105 and STM32F107. I’ve got myself two STM32F105R8T6 and made a board, which fits into a case I also bought. The case is labeled as “XB2-ES542”  :

  • Motorcycle black box. A quick update.

    Just a quick update for those who are interested if this project is still alive. It is. Above you can find an early test video from the application which runs on a PC and does post processing of the data collected by raspberry pi. More details to come in next post. All source code for this project is here (work in progress). First post here.
