hi, board is STM32F103C8T6 from ebay... I bought it and i must say : "it is piece of crap". Errata sheet is long as toilet paper. I spend a few days trying ADC manage to work but, no... simply no.... internal capacitor from AD integrator inject huuuuge amount of noise to ADC input (ADC1,ADC2, all channels !!! ) and it cause 1,6V offset (with 100k load on inputs drop to 0,6V). I2C is almost unusable. And so on...
latest firmware has in menu "Tools settings" function called "temp levels set". You can set up a three different (common used ) temperatures and fast switch between them... The response of tip is almost instant
Hey are good enough for their price. And because original JBC is way better than original HAKKO, better get a JBC C245 instead. Or PACE TD100 - the tips are cheap - 11EUR per piece, more powerfull and more compact than HAKKO, but the iron handle is expensive - around 100EUR.
I am using C245 most of the time, and I am VERY happy with it.[/quote]
after a few weeks of using C245 i must say...last sentence is absolutely true... it is a absolutely brilliant handle, much much better than any HAKKO (maybe original the new one but it cost 4 times more)...
it worth any peny
you can see how fast is and how good is power transmission from handle to object here :
sparky can you tell me please, is it possible replace in your controler PIC18F24K22 to PIC18F25K22 or 18F26K22 without any changes in software ? It seems to be one family but 25 and 26 has more memory.
i suspect the PIC is damaged, unfortunately only suplier is farnell, i go on vacation so when i come back i order and replace PIC. Meanwhile i drawn my own controller, this version is with MSP430F5310 but i work on stm32F051 version, is cheaper (2€ against 5€) and more powerfull and i can do direct phase regulation. It will be fun :)
