    Just wanted to let you know that i opted for some stepsticks (instead of a quadstep) for my current project because there was no reaction to the problems i posted here, emphasising on the component / connector placement.

    Don’t buy it!

    TI decided to package the watch with a compiler that is limited to 2KB codesize (the watch has 8KB), so it’s impossible to compile anything bigger than a simple helloworld.c

    Even David (EEEV Blog) is selling his because of this (idiotic!) limitation.

    I would like some improvements for the next version:

    • component placement around chip makes it hard to add heat sinks
    • stepper output connectors not 0.1" (that sucked hard)
    • output connectors too close to each other
    • potis+leds too close to connector pinout
    • drop bus mode, control only by EN is pretty useless for eg. reprap
    • output leds should get an impulse lengthening circuit so you can see that a stepper is actually stepped even for certain step frequencies
    • barrel jack for a circuit that could potentially drain 8 amps?
    • jumper text should read “close for 3.3v” not “5v”
    • gnd-pins beside MS-pins so you can simply add jumpers to control microstepping

No public wish lists :(
