  • As a Canadian, I see your inferior philips screws, and I raise you robertson… At least they’re metric though; that was a good move!

  • I don’t know, but I think they should’ve 3D-printed the new building.

  • This kit could use a few more LEDs… You can never have too many LEDs.

  • 480p? Lets be serious here: to make a 4K display (4096x2160), we’ll need 8704 of these. Both this, and the 16x32 panel say a 2A supply is needed for the worst case (all pixels white), so I’ll assume this one requires 4A. This means the cost of this 80'x42'6" display would be over $300,000. To power every display outputting white light for one hour, 87044A5V*1h=174.08kWh. If the cost of electricity is $0.10/kWh, this works out to $17.41. If it’s powered continuously for 1 year, the electricity will cost over $150,000.

  • Datasheet says it has two M3 holes for mounting.

  • The thing that sucks about this sensor is that I can’t think of a project to use it in… yet!

  • What a coincidence, I was just looking for pressure sensors for a project I’m currently designing when I noticed the new product email. It’s cheaper than most of the alternatives, so I might have to order it. Thanks for your perfect timing Sparkfun!

    What are the export restrictions though? I’m in Canada if that matters.

  • As of right now, they only have 1 R3SMD in stock; you are correct about the backorders!

  • Any chance SFE will sell the L297?

  • The diodes are required for any inductive load, so yes you will.
