Connector Pinout

>>>Interactive Pinout<<<

WARNING: for historical reasons microRusEFI pin numbers do not match Molex numbers on the plastic

In some cases without "main relay output +12v" both pins #1 and #5 should be connected to the single source of +12v.

Pin #1 feeds ETB H-bridge, battery voltage sense, gp5 & gp6 high-side +12v, TLE8888 H-bridges.

Pin Types

These tables provide technical information about the different types of pin found on microRusEFI.


Pin ID Type Notes & Limits

Extra pins

microRusEFI exposes the following pins in addition to the primary 48 pin connector:


x | N | Name | Possible functions (not all listed!) | |----|-------------| ---- | | 9 | GNS | GND | 4 | VDD | 3.3V | 1 | 5V | 5V | 2 | 12V | 12V from Main Relay | 3 | PB8 | I2C1_SCL or CAN1_RX | 6 | PB9 | I2C1_SDA or CAN1_TX | 8 | PC10 | SPI3_SCK or USART3_TX or UART4_TX | 5 | PC11 | SPI3_MISO or USART3_RX or UART4_RX | 10 | PC12 | SPI3_MOSI or USART3_CK or UART5_TX | 7 | PA15 | SPI3_NSS (Chip Select)

J2 Interactive Pinout

Three GPIOs are available on J2 (SWD) connector. If you are not going to use debugger J2 connector can be used for other purposes. | N | Name | Possible functions (not all listed!) | |----|-------------| ---- | | 7, 8 | GND | GND | | 1, 2 | 5V | 5V | | 3, 4 | VDD | 3.3V | | 5 | SCK | SWD clock or PA14 gpio (no alternative functions) | | 9 | SWDIO | SWD data or PA13 gpio (no alternative functions) | | 6 | SWO | SWD/JTAG data out (?) or SPI1_SCK or SPI3_SCK | | 10 | NRST | CPU reset input (active low) |

For HW version 0.5.0 and newer some additional GPIOs are available on test points around STM32.


Test point Interactive Pinout

Test point GPIO Possible functions (not all listed!)
J9 PC13 GPIO only
J10 PE6 TIM9_CH2
J11 PE5 TIM9_CH1

Please refer to STM32F407 chip documentation for full list of alternative functions of GPIOs listed above.


Q: Can I use temperature inputs for EGT?

A: "temperature input" is a just an analog 0-5v input with a strong pull-up implied to use with a thermistor. Your EGT sensor is probably not a thermistor, your 0-5v output out of a conditioner would probably not be happy about the pull-up.
