New and improved V2 August 2022

The Pinecil V2 is a natural follow on from the first version, still using a RISC-V processor, but adding noticeable upgrades to the hardware. Key changes from version one:

  • New Processor (BL706)
    • Adds Bluetooth Low Energy
  • Higher maximum input voltage
  • Tentative support for USB-PD EPR (28V)
  • Support for measuring tip resistance
    • Allows automatic detection of 6.2 vs 8 ohm tips

Things staying the same:

  • GPIO is broken out on USB-C for creating your own projects
    • Same pinout as Pinecil V1
  • Same great feel, including the rubber grip
  • Works with all existing tips
  • Same DC input + USB-C input connections
  • Same case as V1 and compatibility with the red and transparent cases

A notable improvement is the new BL706 RISC-V processor from Bouffalo. It is similar to the BL602 in the Pinenut from the Nutcracker challenge. The BL706 features Bluetooth Low Energy; so future IronOS releases will work to enable exposing features over Bluetooth Low Energy. One obvious future feature making use of BLE would be OTA firmware updates.

The Pinecil is a smart mini portable soldering iron with a 32-bit RISC-V SoC featuring a sleek design, auto standby and it heats up to an operating temperature in just 12 seconds!

  • Dual power input design: 1) USB-C supports both PD and QC 3.0 and; 2) DC5525 barrel DC jack.
  • Speedy Rapid Warmup: Reaches operating temperature in 12 seconds. Support for on-demand rapid boost feature.
  • Adjustable soldering tip temperature which can be set between 100° C and 400° C using the adjustment buttons and an easy-to-read OLED display.
  • Portable: it features a sleek and slim design, comprised of an SAE 304 stainless steel core housed inside a poly-carbonate shell.
  • Auto standby mode engages when it is not in use ensuring the user safety.
