  • lol! This.

  • This product has a design flaw IMO. If you want to use this in a project, and put that project in a box with the screen showing through a hole in the box, the design makes it impossible to do because of the way the Photon mounts, it pushes the display away from any surface you want to mount it to.

    Here are my suggestions.. 1a: create a version that mounts the Photon on the back, behind the screen.

    1b: in either that version or another version, cut the board in half. It is totally unnecessarily large. Again, if you want to mount the display in a box so it displays through a hole, valuable faceplate real estate is taken up by the overly large board. (In my case I need room for the RFID reader)

    2: have a version that comes with the headers unsoldered. A slightly less attractive alternative to 1a/b is to allow the soldering of the headers to the back of the board and mount the Photon “upside down”. (Requires manually installing headers pointing up on the Photon). At least then you can surface mount the display in a faceplate albeit with wasted faceplate real estate.

  • I was about to ask the same thing.. Waiting patiently..

  • Thanks for this! I was wondering why nothing was happening!

  • That’s the only board they have at the moment in this frequency range.

  • It would be nice if you sold a TNC to U.FL so we could plug this into the RFID ready you sell.

    Edit: I see you sell a SMA to U.FL….That’s more high frequency connections I’d care for, but it will do for now. Thanks for making this antenna available and such a reasonable cost.

No public wish lists :(
