Firmware differences between gruvin9x and er9x (stock board)

Gruvin 9x development has now been stopped - with the development team joining up with the open9x team to produce one firmware.

Firmware differences between gruvin9x and er9x (stock board)

Post by bertrand35 » Tue Jan 03, 2012 4:58 pm

What you will find in gruvin9x (which is not in er9x)?
- a full flight phases feature (6 chars phases names, with smooth transitions between phases)
- expos algorithm is rewriten (you may use more than 2 switches)
- MODELS / MIXERS screens redesigned to allow to exit a copy or move operation and revert to the previous state
- in MIXERS screen, it's possible to insert a MIX before and after a line
- An "extended trims" feature, which allows us to go over [-125:125] (useful for maiden flight ; the trim does blink in this case, meaning that there is a mechanical problem to solve)
- A new Function Switches screen for assigning per model special functions (move trims to offsets, instant trim, trainer) to switches
- Full FrSky telemetry support including FrSky hub
- winged Shadow How High telemetry support [New]
- Virtual channels (CH9-CH16) displayed as bars on an alternate screen [New]
- Many little things and optimizations that I don't have on the top of my head
- Better EEPROM compression algorithm
- EEPROM operations are asynchronous. With a small icon on the screen to indicate that the firmware is currently writing (better not to switch off at this moment).

What you will not find in gruvin9x (which is in er9x)?
- the owner name
- the audio options
- flight pack capacity used if analog A1 or A2 has current measurement
- telemetry voltage measurement up to 51.1V.
- altitude in metric/imperial units if FrSky hub altitude sensor used

Reserved. Feel free to refresh my memory about what is and what is not in the firmware.

Would you like me to port the audio class to your code base? Should be an easy job!

Do you know how much flash it will use?

Does gruvin9x have?:
Bandgap to allow more accurate low voltage measurement.
Winged Shadow How High telemetry support.
Flight pack capacity used if analog A1 or A2 has current measurement.
Telemetry voltage measurement up to 51.1V.
Altitude in metric/imperial units if FrSky hub altitude sensor used.

List updated with these items, thanks ;) So the 2 first items are implemented. The others are not.

Overall.. I believe about 1.4 - 1.5k
