Based on the Maple RET6 from LeafLabs, the Hickory has many of the peripherals on board that shields would otherwise offer. In addition to the Maple/Arduino standard connectors that still allow a shield board to be attached, the Hickory has on board:

  • RTC from Maxim, the DS3234SN.
  • 8Kx8 serial EEPROM, the 25LC640A.
  • Ethernet port, by way of the WIZ820io.
  • 16 channels of Op-Amp buffered analog input.
  • 8 channels of PWM output each rated up to 75 amps and up to 30 Volts max Vds.*
  • Low Side MOSFETS drive PWM outputs.
  • Single voltage supply input between 12 and 28 volts.
  • On board regulators provide supply regulation for the analog circuits and the STM32F103RET6.
  • MOSFET circuits are supplied directly from input voltage.
  • Uses RET6 bootloader and programs through USB port.
  • The Hickory measures 2.125″ wide by 4″ long.
