40-Pin Boosterpack for 3D Printer Control

Description

This design is a 40-pin boosterpack which incorporates all of the necessary components for 3D printer operation. Convenient location of all I/O headers and inclusion of firmware allows developers to immediately start creating their own cost-effective 3D printers.  Although the original intent is to be used as a low-cost solution for 3D printer control: at its core are four DRV8825 stepper motor drivers that allow the boosterpack to also operate in any application where multiple stepper motors are needed.

Features
  • Four on-board DRV8825 stepper motor drivers for extruder and X:Y: and Z motor controlCurrent limiting technology incorporation for motor overcurrent conditionsThree CSD18534KCS N-channel MOSFETs for voltage boost of extruder resistors: heated bed: and fansSupport tested with multiple software programs including Pronterface and RepetierµSD card slot included for printing without the need for a host computerCircuit design tested with firmware: User's Guide: and design files included
