    Yep. I hear the slow boat story a lot lately.

    I'm only opting for FedEX or DHL air freight for my boards. Last slow boat order I did took two months !

    My last order of K16's were shipped to me via FedEx and were stuck in FedEx customs hell for 4 weeks. Called FedEx almost every other day to try and get it resolved. Even the "fast" methods have issues.

    NUTS !

    I don't know what it is with FEDEX. I've have issues with them too; but never an issue with DHL.
    Don't know why.

    Hi everyone
    Like a bunch of you I ordered up a bunch of PCBs, even though I already had a couple F16V3's, a while ago, and now I'm just getting around to filling in the BOMs. I got to thinking on the expansion boards and how many I should put together and was wondering is the expansion boards were compatible with the F16V3s I already have? If they are I guess I'd just have to buy more parts and build them all. Anybody try the differential boards out on their F16v2/3's?

    The expansion boards only work with Kulp Controllers and my PB16 controllers. They do not work with the F16v3 or F16v2.

    Well darn, I do enjoy putting these together, but I guess I'll have to consider prebuilt to expand those. Thanks Scott, I'm looking forward to putting a couple together as soon as my parts arrive.

    While they're not directly compatible, you can build a custom cable for differential receivers. I have some receivers from RHL that I use with my Kulp Controllers. I made a cable to fix one of the outputs, which had the differential signals switched. I used a CAT-5 punch down jack with a short piece of cable and a correctly pinned Cat-5 Connector. I switched wires in the pair when I punched them into the block. Now I have a short cable that's added to the end of a standard cable. You can also crimp one end of a cat5 connector with the lines correctly oriented. Use the schematics from both controllers and/or differential receivers to figure out which lines go where. Saved me $40 and I already had the parts needed.

    Hi Scott,

    Have a look at the Zephyr rtos development environment. It is quite good and is cross platform so you can build targets for many different mcu's and boards. https://docs.zephyrproject.org/latest/boards/index.html

    The project is an active open source project and part of the linux foundation.

    https://www.zephyrproject.org/

    Happy to help out if you like.
