A development board for the STM32F042

powerup

Andy Brown designed a development board for the STM32F042 in the TSSOP20 package:

This project came about because I’m using the STM32F042F6P6 (32Kb flash, 6Kb SRAM) in another project where I’m creating a USB device and the first thing I did is try to obtain a development board for it. I was hopeful that ST would have created one of their ‘discovery’ boards but no, there was only a ‘nucleo’ board available and that had one of the QFP packages on it.

Fraunhofer TechBridge, Greentown Labs launch program to accelerate energy innovations’ path to market

Boston, MA – April 16, 2015 – Access to external feedback early in the development process is critical for building successful innovative products. For large companies, such access is easily obtained; for startup companies, however, industry feedback is hard to come by. To assist entrepreneurs in that effort, Fraunhofer TechBridge (a program of Fraunhofer CSE) and Greentown Labs have teamed up to launch PROPEL, a six-month program for startups to refine their prototypes, obtain customer feedback, and develop their businesses for success in the market.

With the vision of a smarter, interconnected world, PROPEL is seeking complementary innovations in self-powered Wireless Sensor-Actuator Networks that can radically change how we interact with our surroundings. The program, sponsored by Shell GameChanger, is seeking startups that are:

  • Creating technologies for distributed sensing and actuation networks;
  • Developing prototypes and/or integrated systems for customer validation;
  • Looking to develop strategic partnerships with industry as a potential go-to-market strategy;
  • Interested and able to relocate to Greentown Labs in Somerville, MA for the duration of the program.

DIY AVR Development Board with Atmega128

by Radu Motisan @ pocketmagic.net:

For many of my previous projects I used AVR Microcontrollers extensively. I started with the Atmega8 and moved to superior AVR variants depending on the application complexity and requirements. Before designing any particular application, I usually do my research on a development board. It is a PCB featuring the target microcontroller and minimal support logic that usually covers a regulated power supply, pin headers to connect peripherals and/or a few LEDs used for basic debugging.

Such boards are available in many shapes and colours, from simple to complex and most of the times they are affordable (after all we’re talking about a minimal PCB with a microcontroller and a few, mostly passive, components).
