    the chineese new year has come and olimex throws out one new board after another! The revenge of the bulgarians ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Keep it up!

    P.S. Happy sheep year

    PIC32MZ2048EHC144 – did you mean PIC32MZ2048ECH144 ? [Typo]

    Lurch asked — did you mean PIC32MZ2048ECH144 ? Mine arrived with an xxxECG144 which means no CAN, fewer DMA channels, but otherwise the same. No problem in my case but I suppose the product description should be corrected.

    Hi Dear Guys,

    I got one of these board and the pic are ECG not ECH, the problem was we need to work on CANBUS, pls update the product specs or change the MCU on the board,

    This is an open question here to Tsevan or other guys that can deliver insteresting opinions about that matter.

    I see also the errata on MZ devices, pull-ups on OSC2, etc…. only certified 12 or 8Mhz… etc….

    I think the MEBII board uses MEMS OSC and we are developing custom hardware now, based on these device series MZ.

    It’s the first time we will go to implemment MEMS OSC type instead of crystals, the costs are near the same but what are real differences between the two systems??

    We are from old school and know crystals working from years, but on this case seems the OSC circuit implementation on MZ series are on the errata and will go to try to implement MEMS to avoid issues.

    What do you think about these type of oscillators ?? seems are replacing quartz, on some designs…..

    The ppm’s seems less stable….

    Maybe another option will be to generate OSC1 signal with small microcontroller stable circuit, to the MZ……
