  • RS-485 and RS-232 does not specify or recommend any communications protocol, only the physical layer. The protocol is how the 0's and 1's are arranged. The physical layer is the electrical layer. A minor detail, but just because something talks RS-485 does not mean that this shield has the magic to know how to communicate with it.

  • I've had MULTIPLE tantalum capacitors explode in a production power supply at work. They work great most of the time, but when they explode it's exciting. This was a small 6.8 uF 35 volt tantalum cap. We used safety glasses on that power supply. (We finally got the engineer to change the design.)

No public wish lists :(
