Well that was fast. After about 30 minutes of use, the frequency generator is now unresponsive to any button I press. Even when I switch it off and on, it still remains unresponsive and ignores all input. All I was doing was feeding the input into an oscilloscope and watching the waveforms change. Now its stuck on the last the settings I selected before it broke.
I just put mine together and I’m not happy with this kit.
The switches are ‘sticky’ and tend not to spring back up after being pressed. This makes the user interface very frustrating to use. It tends to get hung up and unresponsive, so I have to power it on and off to reset it. I took the face plate off so the buttons could be pulled back up manually after depressing. Oh and one of the stand-offs was defective, anyway. Just as well as the only way I can use this function generator is without the cover.
This was my first dud from Sparkfun. I would recommend passing on this one.
No public wish lists :(
