  • 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

  • I have been seeing these modules online a lot (putting together a load cell project) but I cannot find the IC used by itself - definitely buying one or more of these, but for future application want to integrate into an IC, any hints?

  • All I want is normal tab behaviour

  • This is awesome news!!! I have been using SparkFun kits and parts to teach high school FIRST Teams basic programming and electronics for a couple of years :)
