  • I love this idea! Suggestion, would you guys be able to do something similar for op-amps, where the resistors/capacitors are left unsoldered? It'd be great to use it as a learning platform for different amps and filters, and then with the ability to daisy-chain them to to make more complex amplifiers.

  • Is there a datasheet or user's guide somewhere? I have so many questions. Is it solely USB-A to USB-A? Do the two USB-C ports mean it has support for that connector as well? Can it handle all of the different USB PD modes as well as the bidirectionality? Is it independently powered via the USB micro port or does it draw power from the measuring source? Is the micro port for data collection or another option for pass-through?

  • Totally understandable, the layout looks great considering how much stuff is packed on there! I just wasn't sure if you were going to offer a header-less version like you do with other dev boards. I'll definitely keep an eye out for the Qwiic version. It's just unfortunate that these chips only offer 16 channels when a hexapod usually requires 18. Thanks!

  • It's the same controller. It can be used as a generic PWM driver so it'll work for servos as well as LEDs.

  • Any chance of getting one of these with right angle servo headers and broken out address pins so that you can have multiple chained together?

  • Can anyone provide comment as to whether the supply voltage influences the sensitivity of the receiver?

  • What's the difference between the new FreeSOC board and the old one? I didn't see any comparision in the product pages other than "a new version is available."

  • This is perfect! Any chance a similar (all in one with no supporting components) step-up is on the way? Preferably one that comes with adjustable or varying outputs.

  • Thanks for the transparency! I'm no web developer but I figured it'd be a fairly involved change. Good to know it's at least on the radar.

  • Do you guys have any plans on adding configuration options to your product pages? For most instances it's not necessary but for products with multiple different configuration (e.g. the Actobotics motors which have tons of different speed/torque configurations) it'd be nice to have a dropdown to select the configuration rather than different product pages for each one. That way reviews and comments could be collated together.
