Touch, ready for components tests !

In order to start testing our components (Hall effect sensors and coils), we needed to decide which board and which OS we will use.

The Board:

Our project will not need to run any complex computation nor doing complex network communications. So almost all processors we checked could be used. We decided that it was better to take a controller little endian based on an ARM processor (because we are more familiar with arm’s instructions). We also wanted it to be low power and not too expensive. With those considerations, we went toward the STM32L475VGT6 because we already had boards at school with it.… Read more
