STM32F103VE/CT6 in black pill format?

Post by aroldorosenberg » Wed Jan 30, 2019 4:30 am

It seems like there are a dozen more boards from the same manufacturer as that pretty STM32 board with the empty pads for EEPROM/FLASH/SD Card slot. This is one that I found interesting, and there's also another one with a big TFT display with a flat cable. I'd guess they're actually made for the chinese market, probably for the people programming fridges and microwave ovens, and only a few oddballs manage to sneak into the west via Aliexpress/Banggood listings

They're only on Taobao. I asked a seller on Aliexpress if he could get this board.

EDIT: I found this one on Aliexpress: https://pt.aliexpress.com/item/Placa-de ... 91033.html

Also this one, which is smaller and comes with a LCD:

Its not in the pill format as the MCU its self is far big to fit between the rows of pins on a BluePill size board

You can get this board cheaper and it is smaller form factor and it is a STM32F407 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/IRS2092 ... 07693.html

Here is comparison to a blue pill

That's the FK407M1, I made a variant for the STM core which should be in 1.5.0 release.

That looks like a nice little board as well. I think it could be used as-is as a "CPU" in a 3d printer controller. Hmmm, now I want to get one just for that. It will be even nicer if I can find a proper PCB drawing for it

EDIT: yes, there's a proper PCB for it, but it's in Altium format. It's the 1.AD(random hanzi).zip file in this folder:
