I want to buy the board Ramps 1.6 Plus. The description in the link says that is compatible with the driver TMC2130, but I found that there are two versions soldered in SPI mode.

  • BIGTREETECH TMC2130 V3.0. Where the diagnosis pins are soldered as well

  • TMC2130 V?. In this other product those pins are not soldered and I believe it will fit in the board


As you can see in the image other boards like the SKR 1.3 have some socket to plug in the diagnosis pins. But I don't see something similar in the Ramps 1.6, which has male pins instead.

  • Should I remove those pins in order to plug the driver? Or is there a better way to proceed?
  • I don't really know what the diagnosis pins do, are they really necessary? Should I buy the second option without those pins soldered to avoid problems?
