  • It would be nice to have this breakout board layout for https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12986 [LED - RGB Addressable, PTH] Then chain a few together .

  • How about a 12x and a 60x ring. Adafruit has both listed. … /products/1643 and …/products/1768 –the 60x is in quarters. I’d rather buy from sf..

    Also, please update the pictures to show the correct LED modules (WS2812B ). My 24x ring has the modules shown here http://www.adafruit.com/images/1200x900/1487-06.jpg

  • Edit: So far, they have re-affirmed that it compiles in Arduino 0021! not looking good.

    They released a new library for 1.05-1.5.6 https://s3.amazonaws.com/linksprite/Shields/16X2+LCD+Keypad+shield/LCD4Bit_mod(for+Arduino+1.0.5-r2).zip

    It does compile without error in 1.05 and 1.5.5.

  • I don’t know! I have nearly worn out my DIP socket from using the UNO to program 328s for embedded and from removing the 328 to use UNO as a serial programmer. try that with the SMD. ;) On my original, I will replace the DIP socket with a ZIF socket. Shields won’t fit, but I have other R3s.

  • Not the same a my original UNO R3. This IS a licensed, manufacture, but…

    • the depaneling was NOT as clean as the original. rough glass under the USB and Power connectors. small lump by ICSP header at 328p pin 1

    • mfg silkscreen junk on bottom by usb connector

    • lytics have slightly different markings

    • vreg has different markings/branding

    • RESET button label is in a much better location

    • board seems more green than the original

    • copper lettering under soldermask on bottom - by usb [03] on one and [06] on the other - panel locations?

    • female header pins are labeled - Lovely!

  • I used PRT-10158 rather than PRT-11417. Now I am out! Where is my shopping cart?

  • http://linksprite.com/wiki/index.php5?title=16_X_2_LCD_Keypad_Shield_for_Arduino

    Works perfectly in 4-bit mode with the “LiquidCrystal” library included with the Arduino IDE

    r1.0.5 and r1.5.5 throw ~30 errors when including LCD4Bit_mod

    I have emailed linksprite tech support. hopefully they have a resolution.

    Edit: in less than 10 minutes, they had an automated ticket generated. pleasant surprise

  • I ordered 2 reds, 2 pro mini 5v, thanks

  • What happened to allowing arduino day backorders?

  • cool, the chip looks like a simple transistor, obfuscation made easier

No public wish lists :(
