It’s been a lot of time since last posted on MazCAN Project blog, since September 15th lots of things had happened.
I think the most important is that we’re moving from Arduino(atmega) to ARM Cortex-M3, a platform plenty of features and power, that will be a leap in terms of transfer rate. As we recognized that the arduino platform in his vanilla form will not give us enough power to communicate all the messages from the ArCan Shield to the PC.

LandTiger Dev Board

This is the new development platform I chose, it’s a LandTiger from PowerAVR chinese seller with a 3,2″ 320x240TFT, it sports a NXP LPC1768

LandTiger LPC1768

So no more FTDI RS232-USB conversors and almost no hardware limits (on its class) but a new challenges approach as I need to learn everything on USB device-to-host communications to develop the firmware, find new base code for the development board and a comfortable IDE.
