  • I'm slightly confused by the fact that using the provided wiring scheme (or a crossover board), the pin labeled "GND" on the OpenLog unit goes to the pin labeled "CTS" on the FTDI board. This is fine; I think we're assuming that the FTDI board is setting CTS low all the time. But I want to make sure that if I use another SparkFun serial gadget on the other side, namely the Razor 9-dof (which other than the CTX/RX switch has the same pinout as the FTDI unit), it's okay that the OpenLog board is getting its ground from CTS. Doesn't this wiring assume something about the behavior of CTS? Does it require CTS to be held low, and if I don't explicitly set CTS in firmware on the Razor 9-dof, does anyone know if it's set low by default?


  • FYI I believe the default firmware on the new IMU wants to talk at 57600, not 38400 as indicate above. If you get junk in your terminal @ 38400, try 57600.

  • Is anyone from Sparkfun able to provide an estimate on when this will be in stock again, and/or let us know whether the limiting factor is a particular part or just assembly bandwidth? Thanks!

No public wish lists :(
