Hey great pics. FYI I am in the process of developing a FC using the Atmel/Microship SAM E70, and it is always helpful to see how people wire up their flight stacks. Thanks again!
Interesting how Holybro is using HOT-MELT glue on the row of…"
"Here is something you might find interesting. As a software/hardware engineer I know it is bad practice to mount lots of ceramic caps in parallel right next to each other due to possible cracking from thermal stress. This usage seems to be…"
"Hate to be a pest, but could you please take a closeup or two perhaps from each side. When I zoom in on this pic it is pretty much pixelated obscuring detail...
Just curious; where is the battery going to go?
"Comparable to the Crius all-in-one vs the APM except without connectors. You saved about SIX ounces! You have a controller with soldered on (by you) wires; time IS money. What happens when it fails? You will have to re-do the soldering; the wires.…"
"@Derek, Well I have some good news for you on that. The ICP10-100 (baro from Invensense/TDK) is the pressure sensor used in the ICM20789 (gyro/accel/baro from Invensense/TDK). The ICM20789 is already implemented in Arduxxxx. See the…"
"The ICP10-100 barometer is waterproof. There is a code sampe and breakout board here. on Github Another ready-made here. Unfortunately, you will have to mod Arduxxxx to make it work. Since it is I2C, it can be on a wire.…"
"The Pixhawk uses the STM32F4xx CPU/microcontroller by ST. See info on the 12 bit ADC in the datasheet here. The ADC input voltage is up to VREF which is typically 3.3V. There is also the air pressure ADC at 6.6V max. Just Google Pixhawk ADC,…"
"@Tom, I think I can speak for everyone listening in and commenting on this thread that your participation is excellent. It is rare that a person working at a component manufacturer ever gets involved in this sort of dialog. Thanks for being in the…"
"@Chris, while I have your attention, how about upgrading this arcane forum software used by DIYDrones. At least, add the ability to print ALL of the posts for a thread (very common on the majority of forums today) so we don;t have to wade through…"
"@Tom HW specifies at room temperature too as do most vendors, and most vendors (Invensense,et al) have a "percent sensitivity change vs temperature" error correction; same difference as HW's stated value at operating…"
"@Rafael, The difference is one is an AHRS IMU and the other are discrete sensors.. Regarding Pixhawk vs HGxxxx the difference is one is a purpose built AHRS IMU device; the Honeywell IMU, The other (Pixhawk,et al) is a controller that does its own…"
