Jeff,

I've just purchased the HxC firmware. Thanks again for all of the help!

Does the Artery drive firmware support the Kryoflux / HFE flux formats?
How did you load the HxC software onto your unit? I've also paid for the HxC firmware but I can't work out how to get the boot loader flash onto my device. Do you have a really good set of instructions I can follow?

The electronic components shortage isn't over and things are getting worse. Even the AT32 chips are getting harder to find and now Gotek System is constrained to use the MCUs available on the market.

That's why since two weeks a new Gotek with a 32 pins QFN AT32 MCU is present on the market. (PCB Reference : SFRKC30.AT2)

The release is planned this week.

We can expect more designs changes in the near future.

Where is this version available? No problem when it has to be bought in larger qty's. (Probably going to need around 20/30 this year)

If you can buy them in "large" quantity (>20 pieces) i recommend you to get them directly from Gotek System. Send me an email i will send you the contact.

A new series of Goteks based on the new AT32F435 is now available (PCB "SFRKC30.AT4.35") :

This is a very good news because this MCU is more powerful than the previous AT32F415 MCU.

- The AT32F435 has 384KB of RAM ! (This was 32KB for the AT32F415 and 64KB for the STM32F105)
- The AT32F435 can run at 288MHz ! (This was 150MHz for the AT32F415 and 72MHz for the STM32F105)

This upgrade suppress the 32KB memory size challenge introduced by the "SARS-CoV-2" Goteks (based on the AT32F415).

This is definitively more reliable with more memory because file cache can be properly implemented to deal with the USB stick latency.

If possible i now strongly recommend to get AT32F435 Goteks.

Regarding the HxC firmware :
- The bootloader was updated to support this new chip.
- The firmware was updated to support this new chip. (Working - Still the the OLED/I2C interface to do)
- The server/distribution stuff still to be updated.

I hope to release the whole stuff in some days. EDIT 8 August 2022 : DONE ! : viewtopic.php?p=24863#p24863

Eagerly awaiting an update on support for these new boards!

Does anyone know which model gotek have these PCBs in them? Is it a replacement for the previously released SFR1M44-U100LQD or is it an entirely separate model?

Done : viewtopic.php?p=24863#p24863

I think that this is a separate model for the moment, but ask Yan from Gotek System directly to be sure : guiie at 163.com
