Hello Cakeslob,
Will DMAstepgen work with your static branch, are you planning to implement it.
Will definitely boost performance I guess.

Hey Viren, 

yes, it would be nice, but Im under the impression that we are not able to do it.

Unfortunately no, I had the original concept "working" on the STMF407 but it was just not fast enough to get the calculations done for all 6 axes within the servo thread period. The RT1052 is heaps faster.

Hello Dev,
In my running RPI Linuxcnc setup, I have Phase A and index only. I am not using full quadrature encoder mode.
So when I set in Remora config "setp encoder.0.counter-mode 1".(QEI encoder)
LinuxCNC throughs error pin setp encoder.0.counter-mode 1 not found.
How easy would it be to omit Phase B from the static branch 446

Hi,

This is not something that can be configured with the QEI driver. You would need to compile your own version.

In qeiDriver.cpp you would need to change the encoder mode configuration.

Line 55: Change to TIM_ENCODERMODE_TI1 or TIM_ENCODERMODE_TI2 to count only on one input.

See section 17.3.16 in the SMT32F4 manual.

Yes to bluepill, no to usb. You need to use a raspberry pi SPI

In the future it is possible, but I have not been able to get it working yet with other boards
