The Sanguinololu is a complete electronics solution for driving your RepRap 3D printer, whatever the type - Prusa, MendelMax, Huxley, Mendel90, Repstrap, etc. These boards are version 1.3a, the latest version with support for the latest and most feature-rich firmware - Marlin. Marlin's extra features include the use of an LCD+card-reader+click-encoder combination for true stand-alone printing (as described on our blog and available here). The display+encoder combination also allows real-time alteration and saving of firmware settings - a significant advance in usability. To access these features with the Sanguinololu requires the ATmega 1284 chip because of the extra memory required.

This is a listing for the kit with all required electronics components, but excluding Pololu stepper motor drivers. This kit comes with the FTDI FT232RL surface-mount chip presoldered so all assembly is by straightforward through-hole soldering.
Please note that all our kits include not only the Sanguinololu but also all the female connector housings and crimp terminals, and 3 endstops with cables - total extra value over £3.50.
The ATMEGA 1284P microprocessor comes pre-loaded with the bootloader and a standard Prusa Mendel configuration of the latest Marlin firmware, and is tested for correct operation. You can download Marlin from Github and customise it to your exact requirements using the freely available Arduino software. On request we will supply a brief HOWTO outlining the firmware upload procedure (please email email@example.com). Prusa has a good calculator for different hardware configurations here. These settings are easily changed to suit your printer configuration.
The RepRap wiki has complete information about assembling the boards: Assembly Instructions
Power Connection Options
The 12V connection to the board needs to be able to carry sufficient current to run 5 motors, the hotend and a heated bed, if you choose to run one through the electronics. You can choose either to use the 4 pin ATX connector from a computer power supply or a screw terminal connection. The ATX connector is simpler if you plan to use one of these power supplies for your printer. The screw terminal is more versatile if you are not yet sure what you will use as a power supply. There is no cost difference between these two options.
Please specify which connector you want in the Kit by using the Note To Seller within the PayPal page or by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
