Arduino Day 2015

It's Arduino Day! Today only (3/28/2015) starting at 12:01 a.m. MDT and running until 11:59:59 p.m. or until everything is gone, we're offering heavy discounts on some of our favorite Arduino and Arduino-compatible boards and Arduino accessories. So what's on sale? Let's take a look...

Please remember: all sales are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

That means no backorders. Arduino and Arduino-compatible boards have a limit of two per customer (that means two of each product - not two total). Accessories and shields have no order maximum (while they last).

  • In the video Shawn says the MicroView runs at 3.3V, but according to the documentation it runs at 5V. http://learn.microview.io/intro/general-overview-of-microview.html

  • For people who are curious - some graphs:

    ( There were supposed to be some in an Arduino Day 2014 post-mortem as wellhttps://www.sparkfun.com/news/1439#comment-5336fcca757b7f684a8b4567, but Google's not finding it for me. )

    • Thank you! I had been curious. It seems to me that it wasn't the "feeding frenzy" it was last year.

      As I previously noted, I'm still working on the stash from last year, plus the Pro Minis I've ordered since, so didn't order as much stuff this year. BTW, if I had not had the Pro Minis on hand after last year's Arduino Day, I very well might have gone in a different direction with the projects that got me to order more. (While I'm on Pro Minis, I appreciate that Adafruit is also carrying them. I'd really like SF to reciprocate and add Trinkets, as they are good for some projects.)

      • I was part of last year's feeding frenzy, and not part of this year's sale. The main reason: last year you could back-order, but not this year. half of what I ordered last year was back-ordered.

        I didn't wait up until 3:00 am my time to get to the sale, but I did check it out in the morning when I got up. Just about everything I was interested in was already sold out, so I couldn't order them. A couple mildly interesting "throw-in" things were still available, but their savings were only a couple dollars total, so it wasn't worth placing an order just for them -- I'll throw them in when I make the next order.

        Curiously, I seem to remember a lot more things being sold out on Saturday than there are now. Maybe I'm imagining things, but I'm sure I'm not completely crazy: the post-mortem shows the Uno R3 SMD selling out in the first hour. But now here it is the next (business) day, and it shows 199 in stock? What's up with that? Given the rate they were selling at, I'll bet those 199 would've been gone had they been available.

  • Is Sparkfun ready or willing to comment on the direction of Arduino LLC and Arduino SRL? Regardless of the Make article from Massimo (Arduino LLC) or the recent letter from Martino (Arduino SRL), Martino's actions speak louder that words. I am curious as to how Sparkfun interacts with either company, from buying Arduino boards to any potential royalties (if that is a real thing) from boards being made by Sparkfun. I would love to see Sparkfun make a stance against Martino, but if not willing to do that, at least educate us on Sparkfun's interaction.

    Thanks!

    • I'm also curious about this. Partially because I care about the future of Arduino. Partially because I'm curious about the state of products like Arduino Zero (only sold by Arduino SRL right now).

  • Methinks you're not going to see quite the feeding frenzy that last year's Arduino Day brought, but that's probably OK.

    Unfortunately you're out of the SMD Uno R3, and that's the one Arduino I would have ordered more of. I did order a couple of shields, though. I might have ordered a few more accessories (e.g., the breadboard and the Arduino and Breadboard Holder), but they weren't discounted. I can leave those till later when I'm trying to get to free shipping. I did get there by adding a few other items off my personal wish list (like the 5mm PTH NeoPixels for my "Santa Hat" project).

    Anyway, thanks, Spark Fun!

  • Why put the voicebox shield on sale if backorders are not allowed?

    • We had 3 weeks worth of these built and available as of Friday morning. But, unfortunately, 2 orders were placed that day that wiped us out of that one board. And we did not have enough time after those two orders were placed to get more built up for today. Heading into Friday we felt good about the quantity of those we had ready to go. But those two orders prove how tough it can be to manage the long tail.
