Board – Olimexino

The Olimexino is a cheap and widely available development board

This board is not recommended for cleanflight development because many of the pins needed are not broken out to header pins. A better choice for development is the Port103R, EUSTM32F103RB (F1) or the STM32F3Discovery (F3).

SoftSerial 1 – Headers for FTDI

Top Right

6 way header pinouts (left to right)

1 – N/C
2 – D11 – SS1 or UART2 TX / FTDI RX
3 – D12 – SS1 or UART2 RX / FTDI TX
4 – N/C
5 – N/C
6 – GND

Top Right

3 way power selector header

1 – VIN
2 – 5V from FTDI
3 – N/C – Jumper Storage

Middle Left

3 way power selector header

1 – VIN
2 – 5V from CP2102
3 – N/C – Jumper Storage

Use either power selector to supply VIN from the serial port adapter sockets, ensure that both power selectors are not enabled at the same time.
One or both of the power selector jumpers MUST be in the jumper storage position.

4 Header pins (top to bottom)

1 – VIN
2 – Trigger
3 – Echo
4 – GND

Serial IO & Serial Loopback

Bottom right

The header pins allows combinations of serial loopback and Serial IO. Any amount of connections or jumpers can be used at the same time.

1 – SS 1 TX
2 – FTDI RX
3 – UART2 TX
4 – SS1 RX
5 – FTDI TX
6 – UART2 RX

Bottom Right

HoTT Telemetry port

When the HoTT enable jumper is on pins 2 and 3 then HoTT data can be received/transmitted on either
serial port depending on the placement of the Derial IO selection jumpers.

When not in use the HoTT enable jumper can be stored on pins 3 and 4

The HoTT telemetry is connected to the center pins (2 & 5) of the Serial IO header.

4 way header (left to right)

1 – HoTT Telemetry In/Out
2 – HoTT Enable Jumper
3 – HoTT Enable Jumper
4 – N/C – Jumper Storage
