STM32F4 debug board v1.0 Rev2

TitanMKD posted an update to his STM32F4 based debug board we covered previously:  This board is intended to be used as a portable multi-purpose debug/hack tool with very fast peripherals and MCU and use standard Dangerous Prototypes Sick Of Beige DP6037 case format A full open source firmware is planned using chibios and like Bus Pirate […]

PICShift programmable monostable multivibrator

Have a race car that needs a monostable multivibrator (one shot pulse) to control the pneumatic gear change actuators? Use a 555 timer, you say? Unfortunately, due to vibrations accompanying race cars a 555 controlled through a potentiometer is out of the question. A solution proposed by the Ohio State University’s formula team is to […]

Raspberry Pi sandwich plate inspired by Sick of Beige

Boisblas tweeted a picture of his Raspberry Pi setup, inspired by our Sick of Beige case. The Pi is mounted on a plastic plate with hex standoffs. Like our cases it’s not fully enclosed, but it does provide some protection from those pesky shorts when the board is placed on conductive materials. Raspi sandwitch plate […]

Home soldered Sick of Beige compliant Bus Pirate v4

Some time ago Schazamp made a community order of Sick of Beige compliant Bus Pirate v4. Presslab received his and soldered it up. All that’s left is to wait for his Sick of Beige acrylic panels to arrive and assemble the case. I built mine, they look really great. Thanks again schazamp. Now I am […]
