Gravity sucks :)
timecop, is your i2c converter (firmware) upgrade-able by the user?

Yes. Standard avr isp.
I'll have links to hex and perhaps sores in 1st post soon.

Cool Now that's a proper i2c converter, unlike the other one that has to be send to the maker just to do an upgrade.

AfroI2C 8ch hardware PWM success (1 min 7 sec)


Looks like I just have to make boards for this new chip and jitter-free solution is ready to go. However, atmel-based stuff should be kept as well for those who don't care? With latest firmware I've tested for the last few days, the jitter is barely there (well, as good as its gonna be with software PWM on atmega).

Hey, that's awesome!!

Count me in for two of them the moment they are done! I know - I have an addiction to i2c converters. I suppose there are worse addictions.

Gents,
I just today received the first I2c version I purchased from Timecop. I ordered it on 2 March! That is a +1 especially considering it was from Japan I just looked it over with a bright light, my readers and a magnifying lens hood and it passed my test for quality. More tests to follow.
Cheers,
Jim

Hmmm, maybe he's moving ahead in time to ship them, so they just look like they arrive quickly

Standing by for the new and improved version

Pants first, then shoes
ok dumb question here but.... If a control board uses i2c esc's does it mean they have to stay with i2c's or is it possible to swap them for regular esc's?
