  • Anyway, Peter, what we would like to do is put you into a position to have as many as four people working right underneath you.

  • Why, if it’s a Boulder-based company, would they market the product using a guy with a ridiculous foreign accent? If the flavor of the guy in the log cabin had ANYTHING to do with the product, then I’d allow it, but it just seems like they tried way to hard with this one.

    Could they have done a simple product demo in-house and have reduced the price of these units by 5 to 10 percent? I don’t mind paying for R&D, but I do mind paying for over-the-top marketing. How much did it cost to fly in the European guy?

  • I had a hard time following Laurent’s presentation because all my mind kept hearing was “This one time, at band camp…"
    Also, am I the only one that gets frustrated when incredibly intelligent people make nothing but things that blink? I concede that there is a market for neat blinky things, but please, make things that are actually useful.
    ^^ I know this comment is slightly out-of-place since the name of this site is SparkFUN, but it gets really old when you see so many useless things being made with such powerful technology.

  • What a great tool!
    But I’m confused why this is ~$20 USD. The chip is $0.95 each for quantities over 1000 @ TI’s website. All that’s left is a small PCB and a few resistors. I understand the traces have to be wider to support 45A, but that’s still not a lot of copper. What am I missing? I’d love to buy a handful of these, but I can’t justify the cost at ~$20 a pop.

  • Marty! there’s no time for that, the Libyans are coming! One point twenty-one jigawatts!

  • Is it in yet?

No public wish lists :(
