This is a really cool board I found:
It's intended for use in musical instruments / effects processors, and
is a completely open design, with full schematics and all source code
available on github.
It has an STM32H7 (single core Cortex-M7 _at_ 480MHz), 64MB off-chip DRAM,
8MB off-chip QSPI flash, and an WM8731 audio codec (24bit _at_ 96KHz) with
line in & out brought to a header.
It lacks a SD card slot, display, audio jacks, buttons, and any sort of
battery/power management (It can run on 4-17V though). The codec
includes a headphone amp but those pins aren't connected.
There's plenty of available I/O left for buttons and hooking up a
As well as the off-chip ram & flash, the processor likely has >512K of
fast onboard SRAM and >1MB flash. So this thing has plenty of oomph and
is easily capable of running fully-featured, no-compromise Rockbox, and
at $30 in single-unit quantities is pretty cheap for what it is.
Anyone interested in a cool HW project? :D
