Control Zero Classic

Hi,

Your new Control Zero Classic flight controller has caught my attention. I saw some information on it in this article below. Has there been a product release date set?

PIXHAWK1 IS COMING TO AN END

Cheers!

Yes, I’m very glad to see that there is a Control Zero solution which has more than 8 PWM outputs, as I need for a VTOL project. :smiley: And it is already buyable, isn’t it? But there is only rare information about it, no manual, not even a proper website description, only the shop site (which states it has 14 outputs, but it has only 12? :thinking:) Also rare activity on their blog lately.
Is anyone using this FC?

I did a pre order.

STM32H743 MCU.

  • 14 direct driven PWM outputs for bidirectional dShot.
  • Dual full 8Mb FDCAN hardware support.
  • 32kb FRAM.
  • BMI088,
  • ICM20602,
  • ICM20948 IMUs,
  • DPS310 barometric sensor.

My Freind said the board runs cool that a good thing where i fly for sure.

It’s an H743 with 14 outputs. No IOMCU so all Dshot capable. Like some other H743 boards. Similar stuff in a Pixhawk Case.

Does anyone know which of the PWM outputs share a common timer on this board?

There is a HWdef for it.

Excellent, thanks!
This is the table:
PE14 TIM1_CH4 TIM1 PWM(1) GPIO(50)
PE13 TIM1_CH3 TIM1 PWM(2) GPIO(51)
PE11 TIM1_CH2 TIM1 PWM(3) GPIO(52)
PE9 TIM1_CH1 TIM1 PWM(4) GPIO(53)
PD13 TIM4_CH2 TIM4 PWM(5) GPIO(54)
PD14 TIM4_CH3 TIM4 PWM(6) GPIO(55)
PA2 TIM2_CH3 TIM2 PWM(7) GPIO(56)
PA15 TIM2_CH1 TIM2 PWM(8) GPIO(57)
PB11 TIM2_CH4 TIM2 PWM(9) GPIO(58)
PE5 TIM15_CH1 TIM15 PWM(10) GPIO(59)
PC6 TIM8_CH1 TIM8 PWM(11) GPIO(60)
PD15 TIM4_CH4 TIM4 PWM(12) GPIO(61)

So, to be sure: I can use Dshot for example on PWM7, 8 & 9 and regular PWM on all other outputs, right?

Yea. Nice having a lot of FMU outputs w/o the IOMCU in the way. For some users anyway.

I like the idea of direct replacement of old Pixhawk 1, but for my purposes I’d prefer the newer ‘style’ case (and cables etc.). So, to be sure again, is the Classic - by now - the only Control Zero with more than 8 PWM ouputs or is it somehow possible - official or unofficial - to get out more than 8 PWMs on the other Control Zero variants?

Regarding Cables I setting one up today and they give you all the cables you need. I honestly never had an issue with the old or new conector. So far it been a 30 min setup including setting up Can.

I got my arming switch back… no more on the bench beep beep.
