  • Product LCD-11612 | about 2 weeks ago

    So since it does composite, has anybody tried it with an Apple ][? I’m mostly using it for other things, but it’d be a bonus win.

  • Product SEN-11345 | about 2 weeks ago

    Anybody ever going to fix the sparkfun CPM feed?

    Not that it’s important, but it’s just a little sad when you go there and it still doesn’t work.

  • News - Enginursday: Get Roving! | about 3 weeks ago

    I was just thinking the same thing, I’ve used it during flight training. If you used a VOR type signal, it should be fairly trivial to build a homing algorithm as long as you have a compass. The tricky part is as you get very close to the station indications can get “wobbly”, at least that’s been my experience in the air, perhaps it’s easier at slower speeds on the ground, where you’re always in the lateral pattern and not above it.

  • News - Fluke Responds to Tradema… | last month

    I just funded this: http://www.dragoninnovation.com/projects/34-mooshimeter

    It just seemed to make so much sense, and had a lot of flexibility for application (independent on-robot power metering anyone?). I’m not an EE, but the specs sounded reasonable to me.

    I have a fluke 87, and run a bunch of the network testing stuff. Like the former, the latter I will reserve comment about until the firmware upgrade…

  • News - Fluke, we love you but yo… | last month

    I too loved Fluke, but frankly their products have become less than wonderful in a few lines, and their business practices have gotten a bit grabby or greedy. They are the only network testing manufacturer that requires you to buy incredibly expensive support just to get firmware updates which should be included to begin with. And their test gear used to be fantastic, now it’s overly complicated and with pathetic UI design.

    Sorry, not exactly on topic, but my sympathy for Fluke is rather limited, although the point about knockoffs is valid. Since most of what you’re paying for is the name, I’ve moved on to other vendors that have good reviews from places like eevblog, whenever possible.

  • Product COM-12710 | about a month ago

    I still have an HP67 that uses these, still functional. The nostalgia is strong with this one…

  • Product COM-12710 | about 2 months ago

    No idea what I’ll use it for, but don’t care: shut up and take my money!

  • Product CAB-00509 | about 3 months ago

    So, I’m guessing about 9A max. Key word “guessing”.

  • Product WRL-12574 | about 3 months ago

    Ahhh, got it. Thanks!

  • Product WRL-12574 | about 3 months ago

    Confused- it’s non-HID and supports HID at the same time? Or bad copy/paste?
