MotorFader NG with Core32 STM32F4

3 posts in this topic

Another question about the MBHP NG platform:
How to connect the Motorfader NG to new core32 without using MIDI (STM32F4)?
Wich best way and protocol to use? (as well as MIDI I/OS on new core are already quite "pin-loaded")

thanks in advance,
Jerome

The Motorfader is connected to the MF_NG board and the MF_NG board is controlled by the core. Why should that not be midi? Especialy as you may whant to conntroll some software (?) over midi anyway... What are you thinking to build?

Hi novski !
This time i am not going on a new build , but just filling the wiki :)
The STM32F4 Core has an issue with midi outputs:
From Ucapps page :

  • Pin mapping suboptimal in some cases. E.g., the outputs of the integrated DAC (not the on-board Audio-DAC) overlay SPI1 pins. However, one DAC channel has been freed up with the small drawback that SPI1 can't be used in slave mode.
    The IO pins of the SDIO peripheral (high speed SD Card access) conflicts with the on-board Audio DAC, so that it can't be used.
    Although the chip contains 6 UARTs, only 4 RX and TX pins could be found for MIDI IN/OUT. IN3/OUT3 even have to use two different UARTs.

so that's why i asked for another way to connect it =) ,that's all .
Thought about I2C as well as from my researches it seems to be the best way to communicate with a PIC ?
Edit : I2C also conflicts with MIDI I/Os, i forgot about it....


best regards ,

Jerome
