1. Flying Stone Tiny 01 implementation

    Finally, we finished the design of FST-01.

    Components of FST-01

    • STM32F103TB
    • SPI Flash memory (32Mbit)
    • USB Terminator
    • LDO Regulator (3.3V)
    • 12MHz XTAL
    • LED
    • SWD Port of GND/SWDIO/SWDCLK
    • Extension port of VDD/GND/Port0/Port1
    • USB plug A

  2. 0.5mm pitch QFP Hand Soldering for FST-01

    STM32F103CB, which is TQFP 48-pin

    For the first experimental version of FST-01, I use STM32F103CB, 48-pin TQFP chip.

    PCB Design constraint

    For FST-01 size (26mm x 13mm, approximately), I needed to have smaller pad pattern of 48-pin TQFP than recommended footprint.

    This is not good. For hand soldering, pad pattern …

  3. Flying Stone Tiny 01

    Here is the idea of very small computer of mine. Its intended usages are Gnuk, and/or NeuG.

    The company name

    First, the name of company is important, even if it is not (yet) legal entity.

    It is named "Flying Stone Technology" after my place in Maebashi.

    And the ASCII …
