  • I have three MW PSs and am very satisfied. I use the 12, 24, and 48v units, although I fried the 48v unit with a metal shaving that managed it’s way into the unit. :-( They function very well, and are fairly quiet. If you need a very nice reliable PS, I recommend them. Another nice feature that isn’t obvious is the multiple mounting points. There are threaded holes in the back and both sides, and the multiple connection points have been very useful as well. A 120/240v switch is provided, and the units are adjustable to fine tune the output voltage. Oh, one other thing, my units came with covers to go over the connection terminals, at 240vac, I really appreciate it. Bryan, CTO SeaBird Simulations LLC

  • I have difficulty understanding the 66 channel part. There aren’t 66 (GPS)satellites, and the receiver can only see those satellites above the horizon, and not around the curvature of the Earth. I doubt that it is intended for space use since it isn’t RH (radiation hardened). Just a marketing ploy?

  • In actuality, there are a number of voltage spikes in the automotive 12 VDC system. The ripple from the alternator, especially at high load, HV spikes from start solenoid disengagement, other coils and actuators, etc. An isolated input would be wise.

    And to the Gent RE: battery noise..“ what’s cleaner than a 9V battery”, depends on the chemistry. the newer chemistry’s have much lower internal resistance, producing cleaner(quieter) power. Earlier types required a bit of filtering to produce a clean current. Try a 9V lithium type. FWIW

  • This is awesome! My brother and his friends have suffered all their lives with impatient and inconsiderate people just trying to survive. This will make a tremendous improvement on their lives.
    God bless the developers for this effort.
    Thank you Sparkfun for your products which inspire so many worthwhile creations.

  • Since this board has programming capability through the usb port, is it absolutely necessary to buy a JTAG device for debugging if you aren’t using large code files?

No public wish lists :(
