  • I have a strange problem with this device: I received it yesterday and tried it on a breadboard. It worked really well, both in key mode and in serial mode.
    However, when I lifted it out to move it to a more permanent setup, I found some strange white dust on the bottom side.
    One of the tiny brown SMD elements (is that a resistor?) is reduced to a smaller metallic-looking core. The device still works just fine, but this doesn’t look good.
    I used 5V through two diodes as suggested in the data sheet, and 390 Ohm resistors on the data lines using a 5V microcontroller - I don’t know what I could have done wrong.

No public wish lists :(
