  • Here is what I received in my Dive. Video http://weistekengineering.com/?p=2499

  • Got mine in the mail today, video is currently uploading. I am stumped on a component that i received though I got about probably 200 of them they are a SOT26 device the the markings CAA and I can't seem to find any info on them. One site suggests they are a temp sensor another says the are a step-up converter. So im a bit lost here. Any hints sparkfun?

    The video will be up in a bit, got some pretty cool stuff.

  • Looks nice, not to hot on the jpeg trigger boards i got one of those as a ding and dent, can still be used as a micro controller if it works. I will be getting mine on Thursday, might do a video of the contents. I'll post a link if i do. Thanks for the pics btw.

  • Any idea where I might get a replacement tip for this? I like the really fine tip it came with but the tip on my broke a while back so its pretty hard to do fine pitch IC's with a blunt tip.

  • That was fast! glad I got one, Ill let you know what I get when I get it.

  • I am curious as this has never been answered. What is the value of L1 I have this board siting in front of me ready to go, but without knowing that value I can't continue. (is the Farrite Bead) absolutely necessary? and if so looking at the datasheet for the FT232R they say this bead should work. http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Laird-Technologies/MI0805K400R-10/?qs=Hp4IEBVVqKKRJzYiDLfLSg==


  • Damn had a similar design in the works in eagle (like your red board) except its a smaller footprint.

  • Good little unit. If anyone is interested before buying this station Iv'e written a review on my site http://wp.me/p2s4nk-2v
