New graph viewer features, a video demonstration of curve tracing with MicroPython, thoughts on support for various BB3 models, and post-campaign availability. Read the full update.
Martin and I want to thank all of the backers who have helped us reach our funding goal. We believe that BB3 will meet your expectations. In this update we’d like to present various protection mechanisms that are important for every sourcing instrument, including EEZ BB3 when it's equipped with power modules. Read the full update.
EEZ BB3's IoT functionality began with SCPI support. We then gave EEZ Studio the ability to serve as a cross-platform automation hub for SCPI-enabled instruments connected over Ethernet or through serial-over-USB. Finally, to round out this IoT feature set, we have added MQTT support. Finally, we are happy to announce that EEZ BB3 is now OSHWA-certified as open hardware. Read the full update.
We now have a functional implementation of MicroPython running on the STM32F7 MCU at the heart of BB3. This update describes how you can run MicroPython on your BB3 and includes a video demonstration of a basic diode tester. Read the full update.
The EEZ BB3 chassis comes with a backplane that distributes data and control signals. That backplane also provides four relays that support easy, firmware-level coupling of power outputs without the need for external wiring. This update includes a video that describes BB3's power output coupling functionality. It also announce our campaign's first stretch goal! Read the full update.
This update includes a short video that introduces advanced features of the DCP405 module that are not present in the basic DCP405B. That include remote sense, a down-programmer, remote programming, and fast OVP. Read the full update.
Support for this campaign has been incredible. Thank you! Keep reading to learn more about, and to see a demonstration of, EEZ BB3's data logging features. Read the full update.
It's been a long time since we decided to make the H24005 more flexible and more powerful by giving it a larger screen, an upgraded MCU, and a modular design built around a DIB v1.0 backplane capable of receiving up to three DC power source modules. We are confident that BB3 will live up to that promise. Read the full update.
The EEZ BB3 campaign is set to launch tomorrow, November 19th, at 3pm PST. And we will be offering an Early Bird discount on Two-Channel BB3s with advanced power features, so come have a look! Read the full update.
