It’s now called IONICUBE and it’s here!

As title says, the former IONISPHERE motherboard for IONI drives is now renamed as IONICUBE which describes the shape better :) Thanks you João for sharing the idea in comments, you will get one set for free once ready!

Changes from the prototype are mainly

  • Fine-tune PCB layout
  • Larger power connector
  • 1.5 Amp vs 0.5 Amp voltage regulator for power hungry encoders
  • Connector for external braking resistor if on-board resistor should become insufficient

Now we’re just waiting IONI prototypes to arrive (expecting on the next week). Feels like Christmas is early this year :)

  1. Good work!
    Btw, can we get some more info on that honey comb vibration dampening structure..

  2. Very exciting!
    Looking forward to getting one for Christmas :)
    Will they be in the web store when they arrive, or should we be emailing you/Santa?

    • Sure they will be on web shop as soon as possible! Also it will be announced in Blog, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin so you won’t miss it :)

      I believe first final product deliveries can ship on January as we’re expecting just the prototype run to arrive now.

  3. What about external bridge/inverter for bigger device? These transistors look quite small and the PCB connector too. I have been looking at drives for 5 kw BLAC motors and there is not much in compatible range.

    Also what is the difference between this one MCU setup and Argon two MCU?
