Hi Jeremy882,

I can understand your concerns. You are right, with groves modules we can extend the functionality. I am eager to use this board. When can we expect this board in the production?
Thanks for your understanding. We will have the samples in Middle July, and if everything goes well, it will be released in early September.

Great!

I'm happy to see the comments here.

Well, I think it's possible to "route" pins in the SoC GPIO between the A7 and the M4, right?
So, based on that, the 40-pin Raspberry Pi connectors should not be a problem.

Exposing the SWD is excellent to use it with the ST-Link V2 (or equivalent).

Thanks for the reply about the USB-Serial and display.

So, the focus of this SBC, for now, is to use it with display or "headless", right?

Hi Yokonav,

Thanks for the following up. We will get the first batch of sample this week. Will update the photos here once we get the samples.

Hi!

This is a great initiative!

Which port the Grove connector provides? I hope I²C.

Which SDK (or SDKs) do you plan to use for the Cortex-M4 core? Apart from STM32Cube, do you plan to consider the Wiring/Arduino framework!

Good luck with the development!

It is probably too late. But the Arduino mega 2560 form factor would be nice.

Many people(me included) use a RaspberryPi with an Arduino mega2560 and Ramps board for 3d printing. With a meaga2560 form factor and a 3.3V Ramps board this board could be a much better solution for 3d printing. It would be better because it would replace the Arduino and the Raspberry. And it would also have much more performance on the real time part. That would help with complicated movement especially with Delta printers. Octoprint could run in the Linux section, Marlin 2.0 could run on the M4 section.

The 40-pin connector, if RaspberryPi compatible does have less than 40 GPIO and it would not be enough to drive a printer. Therefore as said in a much earlier post. More GPIO would be better !!!

From the performance point of view the most recent RaspberryPis will be much better on CPU power. So the real benefit of this CPU is the integrated Cortex-M4. And that is best for real time control stuff. And therefore the M4 needs as many Pins as possible! (GPIO, SPI, I2C, UART)

Hi reivillo,

The Grove port is I2C :D

I am sorry that for now we are not considering the Wiring/Arduino framework.

Hi Yokonav,

The name is decided already.
For the SoM, it is Seeed SOM-STM32MP157C. This is the most understandable name for our users, and we will have more SOM in the future us SOM+IC Name.

For the SoM+Based Board, we call it the NPi-STM32MP157C. "NPi" looks simple and easy to remember, the word "NPI" also means "New Product Introduction" in the product development process, which means a good start. Also, we hope our users don't consider this product as Pi, "NPi" also means "Not Pi".

Hope you like the idea :D
