  • Product PRT-09241 | about 5 days ago

    Satellites use solar cells in space, and space is a vacuum.

  • Product COM-11823 | about 4 months ago

    ok, some numbers from the datasheet - resolution: 0.06hPa (0.5m) in ultra low power mode 0.02hPa (0.17m) advanced resolution mode range: +9000m … - 500m relating to sea level

  • Product BOB-09868 | about 5 months ago

    Are there still quality issues with the hole being plugged up on a fraction of these? I see a number of people complaining about that from 2-3 years ago. I’d really like to buy this, but I don’t have the time to waste on a DOA product.

  • Product ROB-11965 | about 9 months ago

    For those outside of USA the torque is about 50 N*cm.

  • Product COM-11311 | about 11 months ago

    Can the cover protect the switch in the ON position or does closing the cover automatically switch it to OFF? I realize you could wire it the other way, but then would the cover need to be slightly raised to leave it in the OFF position? Thanks!

  • Tutorial - DOOM on your Pi | about 2 years ago

    I was thinking the same thing. I mean the tutorial is nice but the ready to boot image would be nicer.

  • Product PRT-10401 | about 2 years ago

    Its been asked several times before, noone commented yet. Can I combine 10401 (LiPo Charger Basic) and 10255 (LiPower - Boost Converter) directly? Like one box with two USB connectors and a Lipo inside, where I can connect either a computer to charge the Lipo, or a mobile to charge this. Or even connect the box to an unreliable 5v source (bicycle generator comes to mind) and have the Lipo as kind of a USV?

    I basically would connect the Lipo to both the charger and the step-up-converter, all three of them in parallel.

    Any thoughts greatly welcome!

  • Product GPS-10890 | about 2 years ago

    I would like to purchase this module and connect my own GPS antenna and Low Noise Amplifier to the receiver.

    Are there any schematics available so that I can bypass the built-in antenna and LNA?

    Why doesn’t Sparkfun have a SiRF IV receiver without the built-in antenna?
