I apologize for having gone dark for a while. Two reasons. First, I was wallowing in despair over the chip shortage. Second, I ported all the Stratify Toolbox applications to LVGL, which did cheer me up. Read the full update.
I am getting ready to send a prototype to Crowd Supply. This is an exciting step! Crowd Supply requires all projects to send them a prototype before they launch. This gives them a chance to kick the tires and ensure backers will get what they pledge for. While writing up a how-to guide for the prototype, it occurred to me that I might as well share it with all of you. So here you go! Read the full update.
Ease-of-use is one of our top design priorities for the Toolbox. This obsession with usability can be seen in the lengths to which we've gone to ensure that you have complete control, right out of the box. No drivers. No downloads. No installs. No configuration. Read the full update.
In this update, you can learn more about our open source, embedded C++ framework by taking a look at how to do bus scanning with Stratify Toolbox. Read the full update.
This update includes a breakdown of how Stratify Toolbox accesses the Internet. Read the full update.
I have recently made some major progress on designing and implementing the hardware and software systems that power Stratify Toolbox. This was no easy task. The Toolbox is powered by the STM32H750 microcontroller and Stratify OS. The STM32H750 is an ARM Cortex M7 with an L1 cache and up to a 480 MHz CPU, which is a major workhorse. Stratify OS is a microcontroller RTOS that I have spent the last decade building specifically for ARM cortex chips. Bringing it all together required quite a bit of system integration. This update breaks it down for you. Read the full update.
Please join me at 1 PM tomorrow, Wednesday April 22nd, for an Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Crowd Supply's Discord. This update includes an invitation to that AMA, information about a Coronavirus-related side project, and an interesting tidbit from our survey of potential Stratify Toolbox users.
