DVPi schematic final version

 DVPi schematic final version

I know some nice PCBs are designed for DVPi. I also ordered 5 samples of the PCB designed by EA7GIB and recently received it.

However, I had to add one LED and one switch to the needs of users. But this is just an option. Add this feature only if you need it.

You must read the document below link before reading this document.

http://www.hamskey.com/2020/08/dvpi-hardware-expansion-ptt-encoder-and.html

This document is an extension of the document at the link above. Most of the DVPi's hardware is explained in the link above.

This document describes only recently added hardware.


1.Schematic


2.Added Hardware

2.1 Added TX Led (transmission)

An LED has been added to indicate TX (transmission).

This can also be replaced by the PC817, just like the RX Led.

It can be used usefully when using the PTT button on touch screen or Vox function .


2.2 Fun2 S/W

The final version of DVPi supports Dual VFO and D-Star.

Function 2 switch can be used in Dual VFO or mode change (DMR <-> D-Star) according to user's selection.

GPIO_FUNC2_TYPE=1 : Function 2 switch is used to change VFO (Vfo A <-> Vfo B)

GPIO_FUNC2_TYPE=0 : Function 2 switch is used to change Mode (DMR <-> D-Star)




3.Conclusion

Again, DVPi can be used without any hardware. Just, if you need, you can add any hardware you want as RX Led, rotary Encoder ...

Recently, the hose.brandmeister.network server went down. So, Talk group information is not displayed in DVPi. 

I'll wait a few more days and look for other ways before DVPi 1.0.

We can bring the Lastheard information from https://brandmeister.network/ but it will require quite a bit of network traffic. 

Let's find a better way together.

    1. I'm doing some tests to get the D-Star and Dual VFO builtin. I will release Version 0.8 in a few days.
      Thank you for your supoort.

  2. Thank you for all the functions and circuits of DVPi.

    In Korea, we are working on a joint production of DVPi.
    Design and PCB Artwork will be finalized soon.

    Many OMs, including me, thank you.
    I think DVPi will contribute a lot to the development and expansion of DV communication.

    Thank you.

    1. Thanks for your interest.
      Just test Version 0.8 and distribute the stable Version 0.9.

      There are no functional additions from Version 0.8. I will only stabilize it until Version 1.0 is reached.

      For the hardware, this is the final version.

  4. Hi Ian, appreciate your efforts on DVpi, and I love it. Another fun of DVpi is to watch YouTube with cute 3.5" LCD screen, response time is slow, but still fun. In the future, will you consider to set screen resolution to 640 x 480? instead of 720 x 480? if so, I do not need to change resolution when I watch Youtube. Thank you

    1. Excellent
      That's a great idea. In fact, I don't do DMR communication very often, so I was looking for another use of DVPi.

  5. Good morning Lan
    I noticed this anomaly .. maybe not, if the DVPi is being listened to on a Talk Group and we want to change it to another TG it is not possible to switch to another one and it does not change even confirm it with the group selection button ... is this normal?
    Thank you, 73 I3YBD Maurizio

    1. Yes it is normal.
      That's because it doesn't change immediately on the DMR network. I tried processing with a different timeslot, but there was no big difference.
      You can manage your sessions on the brandmeister homepage.

  7. All,

    it took me a while to figure out that the way to use the rotary encoder was to rotate to the desired TG # shown at bottom and then wait until the panel displaying the selected TG blinked and disappeared .... and then depress the encoder button down. All functions working great ... waiting for Version .8/.9 to try DStar.

      From Version 0.9 to Version 1.0, we will continue to stabilize.
      Fun DVPi is created with your efforts.

Release CEC Firmware v1.200 for uBITX All version(include V2, V3, V4, V5)

Release CEC Firmware v1.200 for uBITX All Version (include v2, v3, v4, v5) I did the firmware work for v5 when uBITX V5 was released, but I release it now.
I received the feedback from a thankful beta tester and tested it myself by converting my uBITX v3 to v5 but I was not sure.

I ordered the uBITX V5 and delivered the correct uBITX V5, so I made a little more fine-tuning.
If you use V2, V3, V4, you do not need to update this firmware.

Supports Nextion LCD (Graphic LCD) from Version 1.09, Version 1.09x is primarily aimed at Nextion LCD support. Also 1.09x will continue to be Beta version. If you want a stable version, please use 1.08 or 1.1 version to be released in the future.
