  • Thank you for your reply, M-Short. Greatly appreciated.

  • Why was this retired? It’s a real shame that you’re on a trend of retiring all the useful general purpose stuff in favor of releasing complicated boards that have only very specific uses. Simple things like this RCA breakout were always the majority of what I ordered from SparkFun.

  • The early SD card form factor concept/prototype was promising; the final product looks disappointing. I should have expected it to be ruined in (over)design-by-committee and marketing, as is the way with huge corporations like Intel. A shame…

    Regardless, thank you SFE for carrying and supporting this. :)

  • It’s a Honeywell IC.

  • Just received one of these; first impression is positive. Four screws would have been nice (as others have mentioned), or even having them as an optional add-on at extra cost. I’m curious, what plastic is this made of?

  • Suggestion for board revision: silkscreen pinout on both sides. You’re already paying for “sparkfun.com” on the second side, so why not make more use of it? Actually, this suggestion applies to many other SFE boards…

  • Just noticed something on the label; this is RoHS compliant as it contains no peanut butter. (Lead is Pb, not PB!) One tip: brush on some flux before reworking this solder. Great stuff.

  • Using a straight-edge and sharp utility knife, just score through a column of holes, on both sides, and snap along the edge of a table. Repeated scoring makes the snapping easier and edge cleaner. You can also sand the edges smooth, if you like, but wear respiratory protection!

  • USB 1.x/2.0 micro-B connectors are too delicate and annoying to align, in my humble opinion.

  • Most things that people are doing with Arduino do not rely on 20ppm precision timing where 100ppm would fail. For people who want long term precise timekeeping we suggest going with a TCXO (temperature compensation crystal oscillator) - but you would know if you needed that. — Lady Ada

    If you require precise timing, you should design your own boards.

No public wish lists :(
