  • Product DEV-09627 | last year

    I’d love to see usable documentation for this product, since it’s a much-needed non-Uno shield.

    Some basic questions with no obvious (spelled out in the product description) answers:

    • In what orientation does this mount to a Pro Mini?

    • What is the pinout for this product? (It’s ambiguous and time-consuming to try to match the schematic to the product, and not everybody wants to open up Eagle to figure out how the schematic and the board match up)

    • What, exactly, is different between this product and the IDEO page you link to? I appreciate you linking to inspiration/designer’s page, but in this case the ambiguity between what this does and what the IDEO item does is unhelpful.

    While I love the idea behind this product, it’s by far the worst-documented and most time-consuming thing I’ve ever purchased on Sparkfun.

    I guess there’s a budding numismatist at Sparkfun? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proof_coinage

    I like this shield but it would be great to have a version that left pin 3 available (the way the original shield did) to be used as an interrupt pin for counting motor encoder ticks.
    (Although, having said that, I’m having trouble counting ticks fast/accurately enough, does anyone have any resources to help me count ticks quickly?)

    Has anyone actually found the appropriate couplers on mcmaster? I can’t find anything that’s metric and smaller than 10mm…
    Thanks, AKA

    Careful - even though these are 2-axis accelerometers, they come on a breakout board with a pinout for a third axis (Z).
    If you work in a lab that stocks both the 2- and the 3-axis versions, mark the 2-axis ones with a Sharpie to avoid some irritating debugging…
