  • In the SparkFun Eagle rules PDF, it says: "25) Use straight lines with 45degree corners. Avoid 90degree corners." Why should we avoid 90 degree corners?

  • Is there any news on getting a R3/Leonardo (SPI-on-ICSP) version of this board?

  • I'm also using this shield to talk to a Sevcon Gen4. The Gen4 uses the CANOpen protocol, which is a bit of a pain in the rear to work with as the full protocol is very heavy. Also, you need to know what the "Object Dictionary IDs" that you need are. I'm able to talk to my Gen4 by not implementing all of the CANOpen protocol, i'm only doing the parts that are necessary for me to do some level of communication (only SDOs, not PDOs, no Emergency or NMT either). If i get far enough, i'll put some code on github or something. PM me if you want more info.

  • This was asked a few months ago but no answer was provided. Why would one purchase this over the xbee-form factor module (RN-XV: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10822)? One answer is the RN-131 vs. RN-171, but other than that, are there other reasons? (just like the OP, i'm not asking to be an ass, just interested as the price differences are significant).

  • Never mind. PH series, as per http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9750

  • What type of connector is this? I know it's a JST, but which one?

  • Can this be dropped into an arduino UNO? I think there's a problem with the flash on my current MCU on my UNO, and would like to just replace the atmega328 instead of getting a whole new arduino.

  • Just wondering, I'm using this GPS with an arduino, and want to know if it's possible to put the GPS into standby or reduced power mode without powering down the arduino. I'm fine with it reacquiring signal when it the GPS is powered up again.
    How would i do this?

No public wish lists :(
