not a sanctioned board?

not a sanctioned board?

Intersting.

Playing with my smoothie board. (an original from the kickstarter)

It for a CNC machine so I install the CNC build

Version returns the following...

Build version: edge-5829d90, Build date: Mar 3 2019 14:55:00, MCU: LPC1768, System Clock: 100MHz
CNC Build 3 axis
WARNING: This is not a sanctioned board and may be unreliable and even dangerous.
This MCU is deprecated, and cannot guarantee proper function

How can this be a "not a sanctioned board" when its is an orrginal board?

... the cloners are ever faster this days spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Maybe something with the Arduino-brands?

The "original" smothieboard comes with the LPC1769 MCU, as mr VDX said, you probably got a clone board.
I'm also have a board with the LPC1768 mcu, the error you got I was getting it too I was able to solve it by change the "dfu_enable" parameter to false:

dfu_enable                                   false            # For linux developers, set to true to enable DFU

Cheers.

The current smoothie website is not telling the entire story

It originally said "NXP LPC 1768/9 32-bits Cortex-M3 MCU, running at 96 to 120Mhz. 512kB Flash, 64kB RAM." (you can see this on [web.archive.org] )

somewhere between dec 9 2016 and dec 28 2016 it was changed to "32-bit Cortex-M3 LPC1769 with 512kB flash and 64kB RAM"

The official kickstarter which ran in 2015 came with the LPC1768 [www.kickstarter.com]

I didn't know that they started with both MCU's, It's quite strange that they "deprecated" the LPC1768 MCU, for all what I can see the only difference it's the clock speed.

Cheers.

Not sanctioned is not the same as deprecated, if it had said the latter I wouldn't have mentioned it.

I got your point but it's the same arguments for both topics, it's pretty much the same mcu, the 20mhz difference it's not really a game changer on any matter that I can think of.
Probably just to mess with all the copies that are flooding.

But still, the smoothie firmware works fine just disabling the dfu parameter or do you want to using this feature?.

Doesn't the MKS SBase use the 1768?
Huh.

Yes and it is why I migrated to Reprap F., implemented by sdavi.
