New controller board for CNC applications

Post by T-Bone » Sun Mar 23, 2014 12:52 pm

We just created a new controller board for CNC applications. The so-called T-Bone is a cape the BeagleBone Black and has a lot of unique features. Here some basic facts:
  • 5 stepper motor driver (run syncronized, 3 x up to 4 A, 2 x up to 1.5 A)
  • 10 inputs for end switches (two for each axis)
  • 3 inputs for incremental encoders (3 axis supporting closed loop control)
  • 3 inputs for thermistors
  • 1-wire interface for digital temp and other sensors
  • 2 high power outputs (for extruder and heatbed, up to 12 A)
  • 1 mid power output (for fans, LEDs, ..., also expandable)
  • Power supply for BeagleBone (5 V, 1.2A)
  • Input voltage 12 - 24 V
We also planning to release direct software support for the Shapeoko.

For more details see our project page:

We are currently running a crowdfundinhg campaign on Indiegogo to produce the first batch of hardware:

All hard- and software components of the project will be released as open source.
