I don’t like filling in profiles, so here are some quotes to ponder on:

“The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” -Marcel Proust

“Proof by analogy is fraud.” -Stroustrup

“I can’t do a film after having debated it. I am unable to do a film while discussing it with my team. I issue directives. I do not achieve it otherwise.” -Hayao Miyazaki

“I don’t know why we are here, but I’m pretty sure that it is not in order to enjoy ourselves.” - Ludwig Wittgenstein

“We think in generalities, but we live in detail.” -Alfred North Whitehead

  • The motor+gearbox torque specs seem to be missing from the description and the datasheet.

    I googled around and this item looks similar:

     Torque:800gf.cm min

    Can someone from sparkfun confirm if thats the correct match?

  • Why aren’t they just using a screw or equivalent mechanical system instead of the magnets? Or just put some sort of case on top. That seems so much simpler.

  • As per the data sheet the row with 3 pins seem to be 2.5mm spaced but the row with 5 pins is 2mm spaced. And the two rows are 3.1mm apart. So ignoring the 2 non-signal tabs, will the other pins fit on a bread board? Perhaps with a little bending?

  • I am assuming that the mic-in header pins are connected to the SGTL5000 mic-in pins? The mic-in for the chip has programmable gain and bias. I don’t see a schematic here or on the PJRC product page so cannot confirm that myself.

  • What about zero? I really wish there was a SAZ knob… that stands for Starts At Zero, in case you were wondering.

  • Oops.. I misread!

    Given the price I am now thinking of directly soldering wires to the module terminals instead of using this board.

  • This breakout board includes the radio module.

  • If I am readin the model number correctly that chip says Ralink RT5370.

    A few google searches with that model number say that this should also work with a raspberry pi. Unless I am missing something?


  • Have you tried using the SDATASEND AT command instead?

    I would recommend that you setup a simple tcp server on your home computer and make it visible on the internet by applying the correct port mapping in your router. Then you should try connecting to that server via this module so that you can debug things.

    Also here are some things to be careful about when using SDATASEND

    I also managed to get HTTP GET working with this and will be posting code samples in the next month or so.

  • Hey are you the CTP from Oakland? If yes… here’s a \o/ hug!! cuz it says so in the product description!

No public wish lists :(
