    Shame about the spelling error in the title.

  • Product PRT-10053 | about 2 years ago

    This is NOT a Li-Polymer battery. It is clearly marked as Li-ion. The above description is incorrect. They are not the same chemistry. Charging voltages per cell are different also.

    Great price for the hot-air rework station and soldering station. It’s a shame they’re not dual 115v/240v switchable. Even with the freight charge to New Zealand, these are a bargain.
    I’m sure you’d up your international sales if some thought was given to this 115v/240v issue.

    What a load of crap!

    That’s an interesting NPN bipolar transistor schematic symbol.

  • News - Free Day Funds Expiring! | about 3 years ago

    We had a major earthquake here in Christchurch New Zealand on 22nd February and I had no power, water or sewerage system at home for 3 weeks. Amongst all this devastation I managed to find a working internet connected PC and claimed my Free Day Funds on the 15th March. So I figure I had my priorities in order!

    Starts 9AM MST. What’s cutoff time ?

  • Product COM-09230 | about 4 years ago

    Everyone has their own ideas about how this could be more usefull for their needs.
    Here’s mine:
    (1) 16Mhz clk (SPI could now run at 4 Mbit data transfer rate, rather than the current 2 Mbit)
    (2) Binary transfer only for hexadecimal display( Only 2 bytes needed to update display, rather than the current 4 bytes)

    OK … FM is a form of PWM … sure, but it’s not common practice to refer to FM as PWM. The 2 acronyms were created in the first place, so as not to create confusion. My point is that the product description does just that.

    “The TSL235R outputs a square wave (50% duty cycle) with frequency directly proportional to light intensity"
    Next Quote:
    "PWM output is easy to read into any microcontroller!"
    If it’s a constant 50% duty cycle, we can’t have PWM as well!

No public wish lists :(
