  • Tutorial - The "Slap Method" for Through-Hole Rework | about 2 years ago

    Oh and the amount of force I had to use was tiny - tilted up my panavise maybe ¾ of an inch, slapped it gently against my desk and the header pins popped right out! Sweeeeeeet…

    I just used this trick to remove some male headers I had mounted on an Xbee board to replace with some female headers. Worked like a charm!

    Thanks Spark Fun!

    I’d rather watch a new product video

    I’m out - my eyes are bleeding!

  • Product BOB-10403 | about 2 years ago

    Ugh - thought I could use this to level shift between my Uno and an RN-XV WiFly Module. But now I find out this doesn’t level shift the UART lines.

    I’m ready to give up. What should I use to get these two to talk?

  • Product BOB-10403 | about 2 years ago

    This is frustrating – I’d love to buy an RN-XV WiFly Module for Christmas to interface with my Arduino Uno for a project in my car that will be controlled via my iPhone, but I’ve read so many things that say 2 way communication is difficult due to logic level conversion problems with BOB-08745. So I was considering BOB-10403 instead. 1)Does anyone have any experience using BOB-10403 with a RN-XV WiFly Module and an Uno? Is it fully capable of bi-directional logic conversion between the Uno and the RN-XV? 2)Are there any shields for the RN-XV WiFly Module that will work as expected and do the voltage and logic conversion for me? That would be my ideal device, but even the shields have issues. Why is this so complicated? I’d appreciate any help.
