  • News - Where does the Pro Mini 5… | about 10 months ago

    What about the embodied energy within the parts materials, as well as energy required to manufacture the components, as well as carbon miles for the delivery of materials to the component manufacturer.. Most likely impossible to oversee stewardship of raw materials to finished product, but might also be able to be calculated.

    “Sustainable growth is 0%” So it would be better to fudge the numbers on the conservative side and return more to carbon sequestration than to overlook the energy involved in taking raw materials and turning them into a widget on my desk.

    Good work! I really enjoy seeing Sparkfun evolving with progressive business methodologies.

    So does the R3 not come with any headers? The images on its product page show that it has headers.

    Will this work with the el-sequencer?

    Soooooooo shouldn’t this be the V3?

  • News - Snow Plowing with Robotic… | about 3 years ago

    Wouldn’t 660amps be better used melting the snow with a plasma gun?
    The resulting water turning back to ice might not be so pedestrian friendly I guess. Maybe 660amps is enough to turn snow to steam..

    I am waiting for one of these to arrive with an arduino and a pair of 2.5 series chip xbees.
    I am trying to understand how it will appear in my PC. Does it show up as a com port that I treat as a serial I/O?
    Or is it a modem? I want to use Pure Data to play with it and am just trying to wrap my modest brain around it.
    The transition to software development has been slow for me.

    How does the USB interface work here? Is a USB interface chip required?

  • Product WRL-09913 | about 4 years ago

    I’d suggest using solder paste, or a very fine tip with solder. Just line up the first pin as best as you can then the diagonal oppostie pin, so that the board is over the pads exactly. Then just run along and do each pin in between. If you look at the Surface Mount Components tutorial on this site the same techniques apply.

    A much newer product manual is available here

No public wish lists :(
