STREAM Core
« on: October 27, 2018, 12:24:15 PM »
It's here.

The two Arduino saber originals have teamed up to bring you the STREAM Core™ RGB Version 1 featuring hardware by Prowerkstatt and the S.T.R.E.A.M. software system developed by JakeSoft.



Based on the venerable DIYino™ Stardust V3, this board comes fully programmed with the S.T.R.E.A.M. firmware. There is no sketch to compile, no code to download, and no libraries to install; just wire it and enjoy. (This is NOT FX-SaberOS/LightsaberOS and shares no code in common; this is a totally new ProtowerkStatt/JakeSoft collaboration!)

Features at a glance:
- SD Card Included! Each board will come equipped with an SD card preloaded with 4 sound fonts.

- Firmware Features:
  • 3-channel LED color-change support
  • Power on/off blade ramp
  • Impact flash
  • Swing and Clash response
  • Supports one-button AND two-button operation, your choice!
  • One-button motion-activated blaster-block mode
  • One-button impact-activated lockup-mode
  • Aux-button blaster-block (quick press)
  • Aux-button lockup (press and hold)
  • 4 Sound Fonts
  • SmashSwitch™ profile (sound font) selection
  • Aux-button profile (sound font) selection
  • 12 configurable color presets
  • 7 blade flicker effect settings
  • Customizable lockup blade effects
  • Configurable deep sleep mode
  • Configurable automatic power-down
  • Accent LED
  • In-hilt configuration menu
    • Sound volume
    • Main blade color
    • Flash blade color
    • 9 + 1 Swing sensitivity settings
    • 9 + 1 Clash sensitivity settings
  • Support for x4 sound font banks with:
    • Power-up
    • Power-down
    • Lockup
    • x4 Blaster
    • x8 Swing
    • x8 Clash
    • Idle Hum
    • Font ID
    • Boot Sound
  • Configuration via USB using the intuitive STREAM GUI PC app!.

Of course you also get all the benefits of the proven Stardust V3 platform:
  • USB charging: The board can be used to charge a single 3.7V Li-Ion battery cell, no need for a recharge port! The board includes an on-board micro-USB connector as well as an external, small size micro-USB breakout board. Either USB port can be used to charge the battery and interface with your Windows PC for the STREAM GUI app!
  • Deep Sleep: With current consumption of a mere 0.3mA in sleep mode, a kill key is purely optional!
  • Single cell compatible: The board is designed to operate with a single-cell 3.7v Lithium Ion battery.
  • Small size: 0.82" x 2" x 0.2" (21mm x 51mm x 6mm)

All of this is delivered on a gorgeous special-edition jet-black PCB.

STREAM Core is the only turn-key saber board in the galaxy to combine the software development expertise of JakeSoft with superb electrical engineering from Protonerd/Obi_1.  This is the culmination of a collective decade in saber development, so please join me and welcoming this new mid-range saber core to the fold!

For sales and availability questions, contact Obi_1. Expect prices to be ~75 USD when the boards go on sale.

This is so awesome. Kept having to stop the video because I'm at work  :cry: so it took me an entire day to watch what this can do! Lot's of work went into this! Very cool features and I love all the small aspects you can tune on the fly such as the sound volume. That is incredible. I also love the swing interaction settings as tuning that stuff seems like it would make the experience a lot better and more real. The saber looks great! And the color tuning for all the effects is so cool as well.

Awesome! Any chance of seeing a feature comparison table with other boards on the market? Or does one already exist somewhere?

Thanks!

I didn't make a comparison table, but if you have a question about a specific feature just ask.

A taste of some of the included sound fonts. Every STREAM Core board will ship with these fonts on the SD card. Have a listen!

Special thanks to font artist Darth PJs!

PSA: The protowerkstatt.com website has been retired. All future sales of STREAM Core boards are P2P with Obi_1. PM him if interested in purchasing from the remaining stock.

Greetings!

I have received my STREAM board, but I'm having trouble finding an instruction manual.  Do you all have a manual or a wiring diagram?

Thanks!!!
