  • If you’re having trouble getting this to work, make sure you’re using the Ethernet2 library, which ships with Arduino IDE 1.7.6. You’ll find the example code in the Examples menu and it should work right out of the box.

    Newest versions are at: http://www.arduino.org/software . Arduino.cc is behind the times, offering 1.6.5 at the time of this writing.

  • No promises, but from quick glance it looks like Texas Instruments CD4504 might fit the bill. It really depends on what you’re trying to do with it. I2C? SPI? Supply from 5-20V. Tie SELECT to GND and you’ll have yourself a A-B CMOS translator. http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/cd4504b.pdf

  • This is a great chip - easy to hookup and it just works. No slew. No hassle. I’m really glad to see that you guys made this a breakout board. One word of caution, though. The VCC Isolation feature (which places the pins in a HighZ state) works during startup only if you tie OE to ground via a pulldown. It doesn’t matter which rail powers up first, but until the VCCa rail is energized OE will continue to be held low, keeping the pins HighZ. SO - remember to connect OE to GND with a weak pulldown (10-50k), and leave the solder jumper connected.

  • The Bluetooth Cubelet can actually do that. Although this product page talks only about Cubelets Control, Modrobotics has an API and programming environment called Cubelets Code that allows you to reprogram all of the other Cubelets using C. http://code.modrobotics.com and the API documentation is here: http://code.modrobotics.com/documentation/

  • Careful! This part appears to line up with the similarly name part in the SparkFun Eagle Library - but the Eagle part is 6-position!

  • Why doesn’t this board break out the USBDM and USBDP pins? Now I’m having fun soldering to individual pins!

No public wish lists :(
