Hardware – STEP800
120x80, thickness = 1.6mm
There are five M3 mounting holes on each four corners and in the middle.
Long parts of the top and bottom in this picture are waste boards, and are removed after the production.

The main components are as follows;
|D0||Shift Register SCK|
|D1||NC||Pad exposed in soldering side|
|D2||Shift Register MOSI|
|D3||Shift Register MISO|
|D5||Shift Register ENABLE|
|D7||NC||Pad exposed in soldering side|
|D8||NC||Pad exposed in soldering side|
|D9||NC||Pad exposed in soldering side|
|D20/SDA||NC||Pad exposed in soldering side|
|D21/SCL||NC||Pad exposed in soldering side|
|D38||NC||Pad exposed in soldering side|
|A1||NC||Pad exposed in soldering side|
|A5||Shift Register CS|
Since the L6470_RESET and W5500_RESET are connected to the reset pins of L6470 and W5500 individually, be sure to set pinMode to OUTPUT and then set the state to HIGH.
Pads on PCB rear side
There are unassigned pins and power pads on the rear side of PCB. They are 2.54mm picth, so you can attach surface-mount pin-headers and IC sockets. R6 and R7 on the rear side can be used for the pull-up for the i2c pins(SDA, SDL). The chip size is 1608(0603).
Since these pins are not controlled from firmware, customizing firmware for your own purpose is necessary.
For the STEP800, different SPI ports are used for the L6470 and W5500 for the ease of firmware process. Here is a very informative guide to SPI allocation in ATSAMD21.
Shift registers (DIP switch, brake output)
A 16MHz crystal oscillator is connected to the OSCIN of Motor ID 1's L6470. From there, OSCOUT and OSCIN are daisy chained in order of IDs, so please set each L6470 to "External 16MHz input, Inverted output(
EXT_16MHZ_OSCOUT_INVERT)". If the internal clock is used, the movement may shift gradually during constant speed operation.
Since it is not wired, Step Clock operation is not possible.
This is directly wired with GND and can not use.
