What is the electronics for

The electronics board controls all the pars of the laser system:
  • Communication with the PC (via network or USB)
  • Store and read files on local storage (SD-card)
  • Communicate to a user interface (LCD panel, via I2C bus)
  • Driving the stepper motors
  • Switching the laser
  • Reading the end-stops and sensors

For this purpose a mainboard is designed. This includes all the electronic components and connections.
