  • Do you know if this will sense a capacitive load through a very small surface area (e.g. tip of a 20AWG wire)? If so, would the large pad on this PCB diminish the sensitivity in such a use case, perhaps requiring the large pad to be disconnected by cutting the trace?


  • FYI, using Arduino IDE 1.6.6 seems to have issues with deprecated platform.txt and subsequent inability to locate avrdude. Reverting to Arduino 1.6.5 solves this.

  • Oh, now I see below: “The only differences are the voltage regulator and crystal (and a solder jumper).”

  • Is the only difference between the 3.3v and the 5v the voltage regulator on the RAW pin, and the software configuration (e.g. clk freq)? I see “VCC = 2.7V to 5.5V (unless otherwise noted)” mentioned on page 383 of the 32U4 datasheet. In general, can microcontrollers be powered with a range of voltages?

    Specifically, I am wondering if I can run the 3.3v version at 3.6v. Thanks.

  • I bought two of these because I thought I accidentally fried the first one.

    However, I observed that the X-Y-Z axes are centered at different values for my two MMA7361s, even though documentation indicates that all axes should be centered at Vcc/2 = 3.3/2 = 1.65: [1] x:1.55 y:1.65 z:1.40 [2] x:1.65 y:1.75 z:1.45

    Am I doing something wrong, or are the centered values just not calibrated right?
