Low budget plasma setup,going with 7i96
Also, the video seems to suggest an awful lot of backlash.
On reflection, a 3D printed Harmonic reducer is a much more interesting idea...

No. I was thinking about 120:1 for robots.
Already been done, it seems.

Contains the correct bitfile (8 stepgens, 2 PWM gens and 2 "A" pin only encoders on I/O 0..23)
The one in the dist is broken, will fix tomorrow
Peter, can you help me and add code for one 7i37 as I need some inputs. That would be much appreciated.

Does the firmware have any smart-serial channels? That might be a more efficient way to add GPIO pins.
But that would need another board and I have the 7i37 already.

OK, yes it could work but again that would be something I´d have to buy = I will have to make do with what I have at hand.
