Azteeg X5 mini 32BIT All-in-one Controller V1.1 - Screw Terminals
The X5 mini is a 32 bit ARM based Motion controller for 3D printers, CNC Machines and Laser cutters. The X5 mini runs on Smoothieware firmware and is based on Smoothieboard by the awesome Arthur Wolf. The X5 mini uses the powerful 32bit, 120Mhz NXP LPC1769 ARM chip capable of faster calculations for faster and smoother movements without breaking a sweat.
Configuration is easier using a text based config file loaded on the SD card, no need to upload firmware every time you make a change. Just edit the config file from your PC then reboot the board with the new config and you're done.
Compact and powerful all in one solution. Board size: 3.4"(94mm) X 2"(50mm)
Consider using our GLCD to Azteeg X5 Mini Connector Board if you're using a GLCD.

I received this with my UltiBots Kossel 250 V-Slot BSE as a substitute for the one with pin terminals which were on back-order. The controller is excellent quality. All movements on the BSE are smooth and fluid.
I used pins from a pin header (thanks to the UltiBots FAQ for this suggestion) so I didn't have to remove the connectors on my steppers and other electronics. I may eventually remove the connectors and fully utilize the screw terminals mainly to reduce the amount of excess wires.
I was having some issues with Pronterface when performing calibrations. The delta carriages were slamming against the endstops. A quick internet search indicated that the mounted drive for the SD card was the culprit. If you connect this to your computer using the USB then make sure you eject the external SD drive before you control the board using any other software.

Received the X5 quickly after ordering. Support from Ultibots has been great, as usual. I've tested so far and will be installing into a deltabot. Looking forward to a way to connect to GLCD easily. I like the 1/32 stepping option and compact size.
