    Hello everyone. So I had this thing working perfectly for the past couple of days. Today I had to re-arrange the breadboard it was on. Everything was the same except that I tied the GND pin that is right next to the +5v pin on the EasyDriver board, to Arduino ground. I saw a picture from a tutorial showing it wired that way so I thought “why not”… After that it has completely stopped working. Have I destroyed the board by doing this?? Any help is appreciated!

    Does anyone have better dimension specs on this? Specifically the hole positioning. The datasheet seems a bit out of order when looked at closely. Thanks!

    Thank you for that link!!!

    Has any kind of real life range testing been done? Would be nice to know how far these could really go.

    I can’t help but read all your posts in Farnsworth’s voice…

    O.K. Thanks for the info! I’ll see if I can get a series resistor to work and I’ll order a couple switching regulators (for the future and whatnot). As far as my set up goes: I have a breadboarded ATmega328p, with a (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10533) receiving RF, they are currently both on the 5v reg power. You said that a switching regulator causes a little RF noise, do you think it would be enough to cause an interference at 315MHz? As far as dropping the input voltage, I have tried using a 5v 1A power supply (I think this was it: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8269) and removing the regulator, but then the Mega gets warm (Checking for shorts =P). Also I am worried that the ATmega won’t like the 5v directly from the power supply (would powering it directly like that be fine?). Once again, thanks a bunch for the help!

    This is prob a noobish question but… If I wanted to lower the amount of heat this thing puts off, could I lower the input voltage with a voltage divider? And is this a smart idea? -Thanks in advance!

No public wish lists :(
