Good news from PCBWay, the two pre-production boards with the new silkscreen layer are on its way. Hopefully next week I can share some images. In the meantime, let’s have a look at the AS5048 rotary encoder, one of many choices for having a closed loop BLDC motor implementation. Read the full update.
In this update, we show you the basics of setting up peer-to-peer communication between SwarmDrives. Read the full update for all the details and code samples. Read the full update.
This week I would like to show how you could lay the foundation for remote control of a SwarmDrive with the onboard ESP32, and, while awaiting the outcome of this campaign with excitement, I decided to start a small preliminary production run. This is needed to verify a few minor changes, one of them being the addition of the SwarmDrive logo to the silkscreen, but also some minor adjustments of some tracks. Read the full update.
First of all, thank you for your interest in SwarmDrive. I hope it will enable you to enter the fascinating world of BLDC motors what I like to call "The Easy Way". For me it did! As you might have read on the SwarmDrive website, I started this project because I felt that there should be a better way to get going with this interesting technology. Read the full update.
