    Fascinating knob! Very clever.

    Quite embarrassing. :rolleyes:

    I am the idiot again sending 12V into the poor Teensys 3.3V, and the drivers IO power pin. A crappy cable carrying 12V on my prototype board had the plastic...

    That was me too. My pile of dead boards is quite respectable. Makes a grown man cry.

    It seems like the powering sequence is the issue here. The motor power supply has to be turned on and stable...

    Explaining your problems makes you think :)

    After some measurements it looks like the damned chip has internal pullups to some internally generated 5V. When motor power is supplied to the chip it...

    Another Teensy project, another pile of dead teensies :(

    I hooked up a stepstick (TMC2208) by the book to a Teensy 4.0.

    EN, STEP and DIR are directly connected to Teensy pins, VCC_IO (as TMC...

    I have been struggling hard to make it keep some kind of dynamic balance, ie take speed into account. But I fail miserably all the time :(

    I forgot to mention that never ever connect a PWM pin from the Teensy directly to a servo. It works fine until the cables on the servos short, intermittently, sends 6V to the teensy and fries it....

    Quadruped walking robot

    I wanted to learn modern machine learning by building a small walking robot and have it controlled by a neural network. I will get to that, eventually. That's the primary reason I chose the Teensy 4...

    That umbilical blob is a LiPo pack watcher. It beeps loudly when a cell is too low. I already broke one pack due to discharging it too much, my speciality is breaking hardware :)

    It turns out it was the servos sending back their supply voltage to the PWM pins! I was totally sure that one of my boards broke with no servos attached. I was wrong.

    T4 killing board

    I built this little board to control a little robot with a T4. It's mainly a puzzle of various pre-made modules.

    It has one big switching voltage regulator to provide power to 12 tiny servos,...
