  • Cool….so you definitely didn’t even remotely try to test this device before you started selling it. I mean, I make mistakes like this on boards all of the time, but plugging it in and making sure it functions tends to bring those kind of issues to light.

    When it’s back in stock, will those boards be the updated version?

  • No, the best quote is this one, “Nate hoped for a website where he could easily find parts, where he could see clear pictures of what he was buying, and where he didn’t have to scour for hours to find data sheets and documentation - but that website didn’t exist.”

  • This guy puts out ~170 VAC. Surprising, since the datasheet quotes 90. The datasheet is pretty poor. It is true that it outputs ~2000Hz.

  • So, I checked the LED, and it worked. Got suspicious. All the channels light on 3.3V except A and B…which, of course, having only two strips for testing, are the ones I had plugged in. I’ll do more investigation and see if it’s a faulty board or what. Should I consider a return?

  • I was using a IOIO. When they didn’t light, I took a 3.3V from the regulator and supplied it to each channel…nothing. The inverter is 12V being supplied from a wall supply. The strands light when I give the pin 5V.

  • Has anyone tested this board with a 3.3V Arduino? The Features List says it’s compatible with 3.3V Arduinos, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I can’t get any of the channels to trigger on a 3.3V input. 5V works every time.

  • So, no adhesive?

  • 120 mA at 5V for full speed unloaded. If you load it up, I got it up to about 250 mA before I decided not to break the thing.

  • When USB Debugging Mode is active, the stat LED stays lit. When I run it normally, the Hello IOIO application runs as expected. HTC EVO 4G.

No public wish lists :(
