With the recent surge in Omicron cases, shipping may be slower than stated times. We are working to build, ship and respond to everything as quickly as possible. Please see all COVID-19 updates here. Thank you for your continued support.

  • All the Arduino code I see for Quad Encoders only use two pins, but this encoder has three. How do I use it?

  • Is there a dimensional drawing available? The drawing in the datasheet is basically pixelated to the point of being illegible.

  • The board isn't showing up in the Arduino IDE when I plug it into my mac (running High Sierra 10.13.4). It also isn't showing up in /dev/tty.usb*. Although it IS showing up in the USB 3.0 Device tree, in System Information. Do I need to install any additional drivers in order to be able to see this board as a serial device?

    EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out The board was being "captured" by a VM, running in the background.

  • What happened to the "Auto-notify" feature for out-of-stock items?

  • What happened to the auto-notify feature? Did it disappear with the site redesign?

  • Also, does this chip protect against back EMF, or should I add diodes to the circuit just in case?

  • I don't get it. Does this thing output PWM (based on the input), or does it ramp up current/voltage based on the PWM input? If I only want my motors to go Forward (ie: I'll only ever be using one of the four "modes"), do I need this thing?

  • I swear to God. Between receiving the re-stock notification and confirming my purchase, start to finish: 20 seconds. Then I cam back a half-hour later. Looks like I'm the only one buying these! Has the demand mysteriously disappeared?

  • Anyone know where I could get one of these in a TQFP package?

  • Can someone give me a part # for the crystal being used on this board? I can only find a 16MHz version (eg: CSTCE16M0V53).

No public wish lists :(
