  • I want to build one !!!!!!

  • Probably seem very off topic - how did you mill that border with the OtherMill??? I can’t figure out how to mill features like that with files from EagleCAD

  • Has anyone had any luck finding the HX711 bare IC available anywhere? We are looking to integrate one into a new PCB, up to now we have been using the first version of this board (works great!!!!!!!) for prototyping. We are just ready to make the next step with development and can’t find this chip on SparkFun, DigiKey, Mouser or Arrow. We bought a bunch of these boards and stripped them just to populate some of our boards

    We love using spark fun breakouts for prototyping!

  • I am having an issue right now where Arduino cannot upload to the Simblee. I get the message :

    Timeout reading from uart. fail…….fail…….fail…….

    I have tried to see if the device shows up as a BLE device on my iPhone, but it doesn’t show up. I am using the 5V FTDI cable from sparkfun and I have verified that 3.3V is on the Simblee breakout pins.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

  • Is this part in the SparkFun Eagle Library?

  • H-Bridhe block is the best cause of robots!!! Been racing autonomous cars for years, and the biggest challenge is performance in a small package. Intel Edison + H-Bridge is the perfect combo for an intelligent and fast car :)

  • And with a Spark, the fire dance begins to summon the power of the electrical god, Tesla

  • I am trying to pass FCC/ IC and CE testing. Part of the process is the Spurious Emissions test. I am trying to contact the manufacturer to figure out how to control which channel the device is broadcasting on (need to select highest frequency and lowest frequency). Does anyone here know how it could be done?


  • Is there any issue with having two or more of these units in close proximity with each other?

  • Selling the bare IC would be excellent! Working in an R&D department, your breakouts and kits are great asset for quick and simple development testing, but our end goal is always to integrate into a common board, and an issue we have had with other companies is the availability of the IC’s outside of large scale agreements.

    PS. Thanks SparkFun for always being awesome! Loyal customer and always referring SparkFun to everyone
