    … you’re probably wondering why there’s dried blood on this spear? Simple. I DON’T WANT NO STINKING SOLDER BRIDGES.

    Just got my Sparkfun Bus Pirates and you might want to check the output caps for the Micrel LDOs for NON Low-ESR, I was running a HOPE RF module and noticed that the switched 3.3V was giving ~0.2V P-P of ramp noise. Added a 10uF Electrolytic across the output cap (as suggested here http://mightyohm.com/blog/2013/02/simple-fix-for-bus-pirate-power-supply-oscillations/) and Voila!, ramp gone. The device datasheet has more explanations for this requirement.

    Man, you guys are getting awesome with the editing, lighting and the comic flow of these videos! Good going!

    I’m puzzled as well. On the Roving Networks site it says that the unit “Supports Bluetooth data link to iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch”, but the UM doesn’t make any reference to that.

    In my case i’d like to be able to use the RN42 to tether with an iPhone so my device can access the internet.

    I’m guessing he’s using a softbox …. but ya, the lighting is the first thing that impressed me.

    Wow, don’t know if it’s been said but the quality of the video and the editing gets a thumb waaaay up! What camera you using and which editing software?

    Actually I’m also confused why the SYS connectors exists. The charger CAN’T charge and power the project simultaneously because it needs to be able to either charge in either CC or CV and this depends on the parameters of the battery. The correct way to load share is to sense when Vusb is connected and trigger a FET to disconnect the battery (to allow it to charge alone) and to power the project thru Vusb.
    See App Note AN1149 from Microchip for details.

    Ordered 4 of these items and disappointed with the low success rate in communicating even when side-by-side. I finally switched to XBee and now it’s all good.

No public wish lists :(
