Introduction:

The HydraBus is an open source multi-tool hardware for anyone interested in learning/developing/debugging/hacking basic or advanced embedded hardware.
HydraBus can execute python 3 scripts as a port of micropython is done (02 June 2014, published on github).
HydraBus can execute Black Magic Debug firmware to be used as JTAG/SWD debugger (Jan 2015, published on github).
Finally HydraBus can be used with its native firmware hydrafw described below.

Features of the HydraBus board:

  • Very small board only 60mm x 37mm size (extensible with shield which can be connected on top or bottom)
  • Programming firmware through USB DFU (without any debugger) with USB1 FS
  • Debug/Programming through low cost SWD Debug connector (can be programmed/debugged using an ultra low cost NUCLEO F401RE for less than 15US$)
  • Two MicroUSB port (1 OTG and 1 Device/Host) with ESD protection
  • MicroSD slot with 4bit SD and SDIO mode support in hardware (up to 48MHz about 24MB/s)
  • Reset & User Button (Enter USB DFU at PowerOn) with User Led (can be disabled to reuse I/O for other stuff)
  • Breakout of all 44 I/O (some are used by MicroSD and USB 1&2)
  • MCU ARM 32-bit Cortex M4+FPU up to 168MHz& 1MB Embedded Flash
    • Power consumption of less than 100mA/3.3V with all peripherals enabled
    • Ultra low power mode (down to less than 2mA for specific treatment)
  • Hardware doc, schematic/board, pinout, template are available on github: https://github.com/bvernoux/hydrabus/tree/master/hardware
  • For more details on HydraBus Hardware see http://hydrabus.com/hydrabus-1-0-hw-detailed/
  • Hardware license CC BY NC (for commercial license contact info@hydrabus.com)
  • Support optional HydraBus-Sick-Of-Beige-Case a cheap transparent acrylic case
  • Support optional HydraNFC Shield a high performance NFC board with Antenna based on TI TRF7970A NFC chipset (and fully supported by hydrafw)
  • Other accessories / shield for HydraBus are available at https://www.seeedstudio.com/HydraBus-m-132.html
