Arduino Eblade Board Project

So a few of you crossovers from the Angel forum have already heard about this.

This project started as a replacement board for older angels. But demand was obvious to port it for eblades. Myself and Dirty Engineer have been working on this for months, and its finally to a stage where I thought I would introduce the project to the cocker community publicly.

Background:
This is an Arduino based, open source, paintball board. The code is universal, with custom board designs to accommodate no longer produced factory boards.

Goals:
Fully configurable drop in replacement.
Off the shelf oleds. No proprietary replacement screens

Status/Timeline:
Currently the angel board is in the second beta hardware stage, with prototypes to testers this month. Eblade is in board design with code complete, first hardware prototype next month.

Features:
Currently 39 configurable registers including
Breakbeam/reflective eyes
Closed/open bolt
Ramp (shot min, bps threshold)
Dwell ramping
FSDO
Closed bolt parameters to the tenth (sear on, open cycle, open delay, ball in place, etc..)
Tuning mode with shot graphing
game timer
and many more


Enough of that, lets get some pictures.


Eblade first test fit


Shot graphing (for 128x32 oled screen)


Menu system (early video)


Game Timer



Angel Hardware


Angel Spec -v11 (we are on 17)

Very interesting.
I like the fine tuning (.1ms settings) but I am curious about the "Closed/Open Bolt" setting. Does that start the firing cycle from an open bolt, and return it to that state at the end of the cycle?
Also, what legitimate use is there for dwell ramping?

closed open bolt is universal code, for open bolt (angels, etc) and closed bolt (cockers)

As for dwell ramping, the politically correct response is for guns with a slow recharge under rapid fire. But is that legitimate?

I see, so the programming is going to be universal. I missed the "universal code" part, and thought it was going to be a cocker only board. See what I get for posting before a complete pot of coffee?

As for the dwell ramping, that's exactly what I figured it was.

Or, guns with bolt-stick. Usually called the ABS setting on most boards.

Dwell ramping is a steady increase in the dwell setting over a string of shots.
ABS or as listed in the features FSDO is a one time increase after the gun has been idle for a set period of time.

This sounds pretty awesome. What are we looking at for cost? Are you doing micro or optical switch for the trigger?

Cost wise we are trying to stay around or under that magic 100 number. But its way early for true estimates. Consider that more where I would like the number to land

As for switches, it will either be hot swappable, or both.

What are you using for grips on this? Or for the ebalde board are you finding a screen to take the stock location?

A removable screen will be in the stock location. I would however like to have an option to use the 128x64 oled viewed through the side of custom grips as that gives over twice the screen real state.

Not a clue. Just bought some on amazon. Will test it on something cheap. Pm me if you want to know what I bought and if it works.

The OLED screens for the proto type board showed up yesterday. Heres a quick video showing it through the Eblade window.



With the OLED here I hope to wrap up the board design over the weekend.

I like it. Would we be able to customize the opening screen? Maybe pay extra and send the graphic? Mine would be for my ultra rare demonic cocker and I would really like it to have the demonic logo if possible.

Yes, this is the beauty of open source. Anything is possible. The opening "splash" screen is a 128x32 bitmap image.
