Any news on the:
Arduino PortentaH7 Carrier Board ???
I have not heard anything yet. Here is the post by an open source option
I am prototyping an open source development board for the future Arduino Pro (https://store.arduino.cc/portenta-h7 (https://store.arduino.cc/portenta-h7))
With this board, you can:
- Access all pins of the 2 high density 80 pins connectors
- Use a standard Arduino UNO shield
This board is more simple and cheaper than the official carrier board.
Do not hesitate to suggest improvements or report a bug :)
Project on Github : https://github.com/Rufus31415/arduino-pro-portenta-h7-carrier-board (https://github.com/Rufus31415/arduino-pro-portenta-h7-carrier-board)
I think the biggest problem for makers would be soldering the 2 x 80 pin connectors to the board.
Wondering if Rufus or anyone else wants to make this board with the 2 connectors attached and nothing else. The board has everything all planned. Most of us could solder whatever other components we need. Just an idea. Any idea of a cost for that?
Yes - saw that - but I'm specifically asking about this:
There is a BOM estimation here : https://github.com/Rufus31415/arduino-pro-portenta-h7-carrier-board
The most difficult part is to solder the two connectors, if a lot of people are interested, I could make more than one with my oven.
I would be interested in this alternative carrier board!
Until the SWD debugging pins on the Portenta is made available easily, I don't think it will gain traction despite its bells and whistles.
