SAV MkI - 3D printer electronics



This 3D printer board electronics has been designed and developed using all the great contributions and feedback from the RepRap CloneWars group in Spain. All shortcomings from other similar boards have been addressed providing an affordable yet feature rich 3D printer electronics. The result, the SAV MkI.
We have addressed the main problems and functionality limitations that equivalent electronics have:
  • No more heat sinks or fans to keep the hotend and heatbed FETs cold.
  • High speed native USB connectivity going up to 8Mbps
  • Builtin uSD reader for autonomous printing
  • Bluetooth dongle interface (dongle not provided, tested with HC-05 and HC-06) with level adapter built in for wireless operation.
  • Designed and Made in Europe.
This is your one stop electronics to get your 3D printer up and running; simply connect and you are ready to print. Small, high performance, feature rich and affordable.

ELFSHL1 - Stepper shield



Product retired
The ELFSHL1 is compact carrier board/shield and when connected to 3 ELFDRV3 makes it the most compact and cost effective solution to drive a CNC machine. Its modular design makes it a versatile, flexible and maintainable solution that can discreetly drive any entry level and semi-professional 3 axis CNC machine. The whole driving solution (controller, shield and driver) will fit in a 60mm x 60mm x 60mm cube.

Features
  • Capable of driving up to 3 ELFDRV1s,  ELFDRV2s or ELFDRV3s micro-stepper drivers with indexer.
  • On board thermistor based on the LM75B for active thermal control.
  • 2.5 A fan driver.
  • I2C expansion bus interface to chain other devices such as IO expansion boards, additional thermistors for off board temperature monitoring, LCDs, LED drivers, etc.
  • 3 broken out general purpose IOs or analog inputs, user defined.
  • +12 V input supply that can power both the mother board/shield and micro-controller.
  • Compatible with the vinciDuino, Arduino UNO Rev3 and Arduino Leonardo.
  • Breadboard friendly.
The ELFSHL1 ships with all SMD components soldered on board, tested and with all the pin headers soldered ready to use.
Combined with the vinciDuino or any compatible Arduino makes it an ideal and compact solution for driving a CNC machine in a 53mm x 53mm footprint.

ELFDRV3 - stepper driver


Product retired

The ELFDRV3 stepper motor driver carrier is an easy-to-use performant bipolar micro-stepping motor driver. The driver features adjustable current limiting, over current protection, and 4 different configurable micro-step resolutions. It operates from 8 V – 16 V and can deliver up to 2.5 A per coil. Its compact and small but boast as high performance as its bigger brother the ELFDRV1. An ideal companion for the ELFSHL1 CNC shield for vertical mount.

vinciDuino evo uSD

The vinciDuino evo uSD is here. Is a clean room implementation of the Arduino Leonardo platform with a twist, and a complete USB-based microcontoller development system and on-board micro SD card reader. Throw away that FTDI cable and go native-USB and get rid of that SD card adapter module. Plug it in, connect a mini-B USB cable and you can start writing code immediately. With the built-in AVR bootloader or with FLIP you don't even need an AVR programmer.

The board is compatible with current Arduino boards and shields like the vinciDuino. It has the same form factor of the Arduino Pro with the same pinout mapping as any Arduino. Programming couldn't be easier, it is fully compatible with Arduino's IDE when choosing Leonardo as your board.

The board has the same features as the vinciDuino but with a nice uSD connector at the back ready to use. 

THEY ARE HERE: 
Orders will start to ship as early as January.

Board Ideas and history
This board was designed by enthusiasts of the Spanish Arduino forum (link) being electroFUN one of its main creators. If you like the link or the board don't hesitate in supporting us by buying one or dropping us a line in the forum link.

SR LCD


Need more pins on your project to control your LCD? Do you need more MIPs on your LCD project too?
The ShiftRegister LCD (SR LCD) is fast, reliable and saves pins on your projects.

With the SR LCD you can control standard character LCDs using just 2 pins, and you can do that almost 5 times faster than what you would with standard LiquidCrystal library.
We agree that LCDs look great on projects, they are very common, and fantastic at reporting back visually. However, they need a large amount of pins to control them, plus an additional pin for the backlight. Why sacrifice their usage on your next or existing project?

vinciDuino evo Proto


The vinciDuino is evolving! If you liked the vinciDuino why not try out the evo Proto. It is a clean room implementation of the Arduino Leonardo platform, and a complete USB-based microcontoller development system.

The board is compatible with current Arduino boards and shields; it has the same pinout mapping as any Arduino. So dive into the Arduino Leonardo and start prototyping your projects with the vinciDuino evo Proto.

The board is compatible with current Arduino boards and shields. It has the same form factor of the Arduino Pro with the same pinout mapping as any Arduino. So dive into the Arduino Leonardo and get a head start with the vinciDuino. Programming couldn't be easier, it is fully compatible with Arduino's IDE when choosing Leonardo as your board. We have put the Arduino Leonardo bootloader in there and it works just great.

I2C LCD extra IO


Need more pins to control your LCD? Does your project need some extra IOs? The I2CLCDextraIO can control standard character LCDs using just 2 pins through a standard I2C bus. This board has been developed with character LCDs in mind as a means to reduce the pin count required to drive them.
We agree that LCDs are a great for projects, they are very common, and fantastic at reporting back visually. However, they need 6, 7 or 10, 11 pins to control them, plus an additional pin for the backlight. For some applications it is not easy to find those additional pins and hence they are never fitted in.  We developed this backpack (I2CLCDextraIO) for such projects.

arduSTICK

The arduSTICK is a small compact breadboard-friendly board based on the ATmega328P. It has the same functionality and pin-out asthe Arduino Nano but the USB interface can be detached from the board to suit application needs that need no permanent USB serial connectivity, thus making it a very cost effective and versatile solution. It has an internal voltage regulator, and works with a Mini-B USB. The board is fully compatible with the Arduino software development environment. An pin to pin compatible with the Arduino Nano.
An additional filter stage has been added to the power supply of the AVR to improve analog readings and overall performance.
