got yesterday my STM32F103C8T6 (earlier post)->diy-stm32f103c8t6-blue-pill-oled-tft-display/
1,55€ (inkl.shipping)->Aliexpress -> Link
first->its smaller than i expected (see 2.picture) and its very „friggling“..
i thought, no problem, i use my Pi, wire it up like in some Youtube-Videos, use the Arduino IDE and begin to upload a sketch etc..
but:„Wasn´t“ ; )..got always a „STM32flash -> „Device init failed„
(use btw. first my USB-serial adapter with RX,TX and ground->Arduino said:“Device not recognized“)..
googled through a thousand STM32-Arduino-forum/threads, millions of hours, and the final conclusion is:
Buy a ST-Link V2 !! -> 1,68€ Aliexpress -> Link
directly from the beginning (with a STM32F103C8T6)->strongly adviced/recommended from my side here too !! 😉
(hope this will do the trick !! (toi,toi,toi->german phrase)) 😉
here´s another, fresh, ES9038Q2M-forum-link: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/digital-line-level/314935-es9038q2m-board.html
by that i´ve found some further, interesting pictures concerning the „targeted“ DIY-DAC !! 😉
first, i´ve found another ES9038Q2M-chinese-board with a 15V (DC)-plug->
second here´s also again a little „picture“-description“ how to connect a „DSD„-Led to a XMOS-Usb-Bridge.. 😉
and third, heres a picture how to connect a bluetooth-receiver-modul (CSR-8670/8675) directly to an ES9028Q2M (in this case) via I2S..
according to their marketing, the M8A with one ES9028Q2M and a XMOS XU208 inside, is, as per their description, absolute DSD512/768khz-capable:
they say its primarily „solved“ by their custom-made/specialized XMOS XU208-firmware..
so if someone gets a hand on this firmware, rewrite it a little bit, everybody with a XMOS XU208-USB-bridge could eventually benefit from this and everyone with such a USB-Bridge could get DSD512/768khz..(with an ES9028Q2M).
but i guess we have to wait for that/its just only an idea 😉
