    Please…. This is SparkFun.

    A bird in the hand is worth two bridging the busbars.

  • Product PGM-11801 | about 4 months ago

    That being said, they’re already leaving the 2x3 ICSP header unpopulated. They could have done the same with the two 1x4s. Maybe toss them in the package to be populated by the user if they want them. Or hell, leave them out and make them separately orderable.

    That said, the DIP-8 socket is already through-hole. they could easily make the 1x4s through-hole, insert all four headers in the board, flip it over, and solder them all real quick, all at once. And that’s assuming they’re doing the through-hole soldering by hand instead of using a wave-soldering machine. (which is really cool to watch in-use, btw)

  • Product DEV-12646 | about 4 months ago

    Already asked and answered on the Teensy forum

    In short, there are breakouts available now, but a Teensy ++ 3.1 is in the works.

  • Product DEV-11712 | about a year ago

    The AllWinner A10 SoC actually has a SATA controller built into the chip, but very few board designers make use of it. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allwinner_A1X )

    The Mele A1000 / A2000 is one such device that actually does break it out to a port. http://rhombus-tech.net/allwinner_a10/hacking_the_mele_a1000/

    On page 6 of the schematic, you can see that they just didn’t bother connecting anything to those pins on the SoC.

    What’s the max current this plug (and/or the included fuse) is rated for?

  • Product WRL-10823 | about 3 years ago

    I gotta say, I concur with Jeff.
    If all I want to do over the bluetooth link is serial data, (via SPP) I’ll use an RN-41.
    If I just want to build a bluetooth HID device, this’ll probably be the module I look at.
    But after reading about the WT12, I’ve just added another handful of projects to my todo list which would have been impossible without support for the other profiles.

  • Product PGM-07834 | about 3 years ago

    Can this be used (with a pinout adapter cable) with non-ARM JTAG ports such as those on AVRs, MSP430s, etc?

  • Product DEV-09530 | about 3 years ago

    Is there a chance that you’ll carry just the bare ATmega preprogrammed with the OpenLog firmware?

  • Product COM-08226 | about 3 years ago

    I understand that these are no longer available, but could you tell me how much you were selling them for before they were discontinued?

No public wish lists :(
