All the previous features now work on the "1000 amp controller". All the trouble was the addition of the programmable max current. Everything else had to change too, since so much of it assumed that max_current was about 500 amps. Now there's about 45% of the computing time available, down from 60 some %. The low side prototype is going out tomorrow. 5 will get you 10 that it blows up in the first day. haha

The components for the new high side approach, that I'm planning on actually committing to, arrived today. Now I just have to write all the gcode and wait until the 16th for the boards to arrive.
