  • I have this working on Raspberry Pi 3 with Windows 10 Iot version 10.0.14993.1000.

  • Just want to add that I've had success using a regular toaster oven. It works surprisingly well and is not modified. I look up the solder reflow profile on the datasheet and mimic it with a timer and turning the heat dial by hand. Not exactly professional but it does the trick for me.

  • this is great, thanks for the help. I did look to the eagle file for answers but the package is listed as RESONATOR-SMD with no other details.

  • Can anyone tell me the dimensions or package of the 16Mhz resonator used on the redboard?

  • would firmata still be a good choice if i were using this block but my program on the edison was nodejs and i wanted to send complex data to the arduino? For example, if i wanted to control a strip of ws2812 leds and wanted the edison to send a control message to the arduino. the arduino would read the control message and perform the appropriate function.

  • The linked datasheet says the "input voltage" which I'm assuming is DIN, the control signal, can be -0.5~VDD+0.5. Does this mean I could control these lights with a 1.8v signal as long as I provide 5v for VCC?

  • Did you ever try stenciling this? I didn't realize there were problems stenciling this part before I ordered my board and stencil. My stencil is 3mil thick but the mfg offers a 5mil thickness. I might try that next time.

  • it seems cool but I'm having a hard time getting excited about a $90 range finder that is only accurate to +/- .025m (about an inch)...

  • i'm not sure why i find this board so confusing, particularly controlling the LEDs. it would be great if sparkfun released a version that would work with the addressable LEDs so we could use the neopixel library.

  • I don't see anything in the datasheet regarding a current limiting resistor. Do I need one? I think the SMD version has constant current control built in. Is it the same for these?

No public wish lists :(
