FreeRTOS is a real-time operating system distributed freely under the MIT license with a growing set of IoT libraries for embedded devices and has been ported to 35 microcontroller platforms. Included with release 0.9.3 of px-lib is a complete FreeRTOS blinking LED example for the PX-HER0 board. Read the full update.
By now everyone should have received their orders and I hope that you are all happy and satisfied with your purchase. Discussions have started to trickle in on the Piconomix Forum and I can't wait to hear what you are up to and how the PX-HER0 board is being used! You can also file a Crowd Supply field report for a bit of fame and fortune. Read the full update.
We have a brief update regarding orders that included the 'PX-HER0 Board with STLINK-V3MINI' product. Read the full update.
A big thank you for your trust and patience! Please check if your delivery address is still correct and update if needed in the next 48 hours. You can check these details in your Crowd Supply account. Read the full update.
The boards are finished and they look great! The next leg is shipping from Elecrow (China) to Crowd Supply (USA). I have also created a dedicated PX-HER0 Board User Manual. Read the full update.
I hope you are all well and staying strong (physically and mentally)! The sample has passed all of the quality checks and Elecrow has started with mass production. Read the full update.
Elecrow has received all of the components and PCBs and is now in the process of building a sample to verify that the parts, PCB, and programming & test software is good before moving to mass production. Read the full update.
We have created an alternative bootloader to load apps stored on an SD card. Check out this update for documentation and a short video demo. Read the full update.
Good news! We have been able to lower the funding goal to $2,200 USD, and gotten a lowered production quote from our manufacturer. If you want to order a PX-HER0 board before the campaign ends today, there is still time! Read the full update.
Thanks to everyone that has supported this campaign so far! We’ve decided to extend the campaign for a week while we review our financial situation and determine if there is a way that we can still move ahead with production of the board. Read the full update.
If the initial delivery date has caused you to sit on the fence, here is the updated schedule. With less than a week left in the campaign, there's still time to back this great project! Read the full update.
Have you seen the movie Ford v Ferrari? If you want to make a race car really fast, you've got to shed dead weight. I recently tried to figure out why the STM32 took so long to read the interrupt flags of an RF transceiver on the SPI bus. I used the vendor library to communicate with their RF transceiver.

It all started way back in 1983 when I got a second-hand 8-bit Sinclair ZX Spectrum 16K when I was 9. The detailed story is here, but the short version is that I taught myself to modify obfuscated machine code to turn my puny 16K into a 128K machine and it turned out to be an April fool's joke.
