Theremin based on the stm32f103c8t6 and bluepill, stm32duino
« on: September 15, 2018, 10:55:33 PM »
Hello,

I made a theremin based on a STM32 microcontroller (the $3 bluepill).  You can see me play it in this video

/>
The theremin as you can see is quite sensitive.  I actually put a fiber optic output on the board so I can program it to be an interrupter for a DRSSTC.

The parts are very inexpensive and the circuit is fairly simple.  The PCB, schematics, and the software are on a github

https://github.com/profdc9/MCTheremin

If you want to try to build it let me know.  Enjoy!

Dan

Nice job! Do you think it would be possible to omit external DAC if using STM32F103Rx series? That would also be a nice upgrade to gaudi's opentheremin v3

I would consider using the STM32F103Rx series if there was a convenient, cheap board like the bluepill you could buy.  The bluepill is $3 on ebay.  It's still much cheaper to use that and a MCP4921 (1.25 USD) than almost any other dev board.  The tinnitus32 theremin (https://github.com/gerdb/tinnitus32) - by the way this is an AWFUL name for a device that is supposed to sound pleasant - uses the STM32F4 but isn't terribly convenient because it doesn't really have a PCB to integrate everything into, though such a thing is possible for the STM32 discovery board.  A form factor like the bluepill or Arduino Nano is very convenient for integrating into projects unlike a whole dev board, though a dev board could be integrated into a project like the OpenTheremin does.

I thought I saw high density STM32F103 demo boards on ebay for 5-6 $, but it turns out that mcu is medium density so no embeded DACs

STM32F407VGT6 boards sell for 8 $, and since I purchased theremin parts on lcsc using demo board would even be cheaper overall (MCP4921 was around 4$ each on lcsc)

I wonder if anyone built tinnitus theremin, couldn't find anything on the internet  :)
