Based on the SKR 1.3 board from BigTreeTech, the SKR E3 DIP control board is a drop-in upgrade for the Ender-3, Ender-5 and Pro models. It features a blazing fast 32 bit processor, open driver sockets and plenty of extra features for convenience.
Using the same form factor as the stock Creality board, the SKR E3 DIP is a direct swap installation. Just plug the original connectors in to the new board, configure the stepper drivers of choice and power it on to get started.
It comes pre-loaded with the latest Marlin 2.0 open source firmware ready to use, or load your own customized version right from the SD card. No burning a bootloader or flashing firmware over USB, the process is entirely automated.
SKR 1.3 Mini E3 Features
The SKR E3 DIP control board offers massive improvements in terms of both hardware and features.
32 Bit ARM Cortex Processor
In contrast to the basic 8-bit Melzi board found on the stock Ender-3, this 32 bit ARM Cortex processor is capable of handling thousands of calculations per second. This means faster, more reliable 3D printing without missing steps or losing acceleration on curves.
Open Driver Sockets
Choose your own stepper motor drivers from a variety of options, with support for the traditional Allegro A4988 and DRV8825, or the silent Trinamic series such as TMC 2130, TMC 2208, TMC 2209 and many more.
A stepper motor driver can fail over time, and should this occur, open drive sockets make it quick and painless to replace them. No need to solder the pins, they are plug-n-play with your favorite model.
The popular BLTouch auto bed leveling sensors are supported out of the box. No need to buy a separate PIN 27 board, the SERVO and PROBE ports are included on the board for a quick and simple installation.
The Adafruit brand of individually addressable LEDs, NeoPixels come in all shapes and sizes from strips to rings. The SKR 1.3 Mini E3 offers native support, acting as the microcontroller to power and manage a variety of different lighting solutions.
TFT Touch Screens
The SKR E3 DIP is backwards compatible with the stock 8 bit 12864 LCD screen used on Creality 3D Printers, but also feature support for TFT Touch Screens such as the TFT24, TFT28 and TFT35 right out of the box.
