    I have the same problem, couldn’t even light up a led (which works fine on all other pins). Electric Imp confirms the issue:

    Are you using a Sparkfun April breakout board? If so, then that’s a known issue with those and some imps - it applies a lot of pressure to pin9 >(adjacent to pin1) and bends the imp away from the pin1 contact. (source: http://forums.electricimp.com/discussion/1404/tmp36-35%C2%BAc-/p1)

    I have the same question. I now have the 3.3v serial enabled LCD (with backpack) and want to use this one for future usage. VDD of 5V can be supplied, but will the TTL work when its getting 3.3V signals from the TX from Netduino?

    SE:

    Has anyone used this with a normal IR LED, driving it at certain frequencies such that this IR receiver can read a string of ones and zeros?
    I’ve tried using a 555 timer to make a transmitter. It should work, but without an oscilloscope its impossible to get the frequency right.
    I’ve found this site:
    http://www.rentron.com/remote_control/TX-IR.htm
    which sells an IC who can drive the circuit on 40khz or 38khz.
    (edited out, couldn’t find view cart button, but its below the add to cart button :-|)

    I’d also like to know. I want to get RS232 communication going with two netduino’s via IR communication with this receiver. Any help is greatly appreciated :)
