  • I am getting corrupt characters when powering this via a USB charging block.

    It works great when powered by the USB from my laptop though.

    I thought that USB was always 5v. I have not measured the voltage yet.

    Here is an image showing the issue.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

  • I just got round to using this with the sparkFun breakout board.

    my issue is that it doesn’t seem to be sensitive enough.

    I’m trying to detect a drop of liquid falling and it doesn’t want to trigger the sensor.

    Is there any way to increase the sensitivity, I used a 220 ohm resistor on the board and am wondering if a different value would help me.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers.
