GitHub Repo, Wiki, and Mattermost Channel

by Florian Eich

Getting started can be hard. We’re here to help - on GitHub and Mattermost!

The GitHub repository

Chances are you’ve already found the GitHub repository for this project. That said, it is worth subscribing there as well - we are working on updates to the repo all the time now, so there is going to be a lot of progress as we upload more and more examples and documentation! To do so, you’ll need a GitHub account and you’ll need to click Watch. Also hit that Star button while you’re at it - and if you like what we’re doing with the repo and you want us to put more resources on it, consider becoming a sponsor!

The Wiki

The Wiki is part of the GitHub repository, so the above also applies here… :)

For now, we’ve added the guides we believe will be useful to the biggest group of users:

As stated in the Wiki as well - feel free to file an issue on the repo if you find mistakes, things missing, anything else you found lacking. In any case, the Wiki is evolving now and will keep evolving in the future as we add more material to it. Upcoming updates will shed some more light onto that too.

The Mattermost channel

In the box of the board, you will find an invitation code to a Mattermost channel where you will find us directly and in person!

We will do our best to help you solve your issues there, and we hope to build a community together with you there. We’re big believers in the power of cooperation and continuous improvement, and we want to make the bmc::board project something all of you can feel involved in.

Early Bird board::mini Starter Bundle

Everything you need to get started with the board::mini ecosystem, including one mini::base, one mini::out breakout board, and one out::cable for connecting the latter to an ST-Link/V2 adapter (not included).


$49

Early Bird mini::base

An STM32F103 microcontroller board featuring a CAN transceiver with a hardware filter and ESD protection, a microSD card slot, a 24 V power supply, an atmospheric conditions sensor, a USB Type-C port, and much more. Ready to be combined with one of our expansion boards.


$19

mini::out

A simple breakout board for the mini::base. It includes two 12-pin headers for IO access, a JTAG connector and a reset button for flashing the firmware, and a spring loaded clamp that provides CAN bus connectivity and up to 24 V of power. Comes with a custom out::cable programming cable for connecting your mini::out to an ST-Link/V2 adapter (not included).


$35

Early Bird mini::grid

Supports GPS L1 C/A code and quad-band GSM connectivity. Antennas can be connected via U.FL connectors, and a nano-SIM-card slot is located on the back. A pair of Binder subminiature connectors carries power and data to and from mini::grid.


$25

Early Bird mini::pit

Based around the ESP32-WROOM-U, which supports both WLAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth LE, base::pit also adds a second CAN bus with transceiver, filter, and ESD protection. A pair of Binder subminiature connectors carries power and data to and from mini::pit.
