I left the 8bit resolution for legacy reasons, and compatibility with older amc1280usb boards.
The traces solution was introduced as an easy way to redirect the 12bit pwm to normal Pwm output header if the application used requires it. Most PWM drives for DC motors are completely fine using 8bit pwm and using 12bit pwm on them might not show much improvement ad these systems are not using the pwm same way as clearpath motors use it to digitaly set the speed.
Thank you very much for detailed info concerning the PWM. That helps!
How far are you in the process to interface 14 bit sensors I’ve sent you in November? As I can’t mount my sensors on the motor axis, it’s a big hassle for me to design a working attachment for those bearing less 12 bits.
Were you able to get a reasonable signal from those 14 bits?? If only it’s possible to make them work with the board, I would prefer to stay analog and wait until you release the firmware update, but not forever.
I understand the back-compatibility you want to provide each time for “old” hardware and software, makes your firmware more and more complicated. I know It can be a time-consuming process. Maybe it would be faster to make a separate firmware version. You decide.
I can wait another couple of month but I need to know you are still in.
dureiken: Hi there, it's really quiet here someone could help me for my 6 dof project ? thanks a lot

fimmy: How's the firmware going?

tronicgr: @fimmy I had to put it on hold to finalize the manufacturing of the new kickstarter controllers. I tested parts of it to ensure compliance with the new features and looks good so far. I'll get back to it soon for integration.

Theuns: Very nice design.I'm also busy with mine and changing it also to Linear Actuators with 220v Servo motors.I'm waiting for my new controllers from Thanos. If I may ask Do you have any Sketchup files of your design and willing to share it I Thanks Theuns

atayeu: Hey everyone! I'm reading up and gathering all of the intel I can find for my first motion platform. this is by far best information for creating one.

tmcnam: I must be crazy but I still can't find the blueprints to the platform by GA-Dawg. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

Trip Rodriguez: Sorry tmcnam, the shoutbox doesn't get much attention. Did you find the blueprints? They are at the VERY bottom of the extremely long first post. It says "attachments: 6DOF.zip
