  • In a video I saw some time ago on the RPi3 they talked on an ‘optional (possible) hack’ to connect an external antenna and thus extend the range of the WIFI. Anyone know or tried this?

  • It is nice.. but for the same price you can get a 80Mhz M4 (FPU), 2 buttons, LED, full JTAG through USB, development platform, GPIOs, SPI, I2C… http://www.ti.com/tool/ek-tm4c123gxl#buy

  • USB needs 5 connectors. Missing the shield should. It should be connected to the frame of the box/machine

  • Thanks allot, 40 strands of 0.08 is more than 30AWG, more like 28AWG. 1.4mm is quite thick for 40/0.08…

  • What type of stand is this? 0.08 or 0.05? How many strands ? 45/0.05? What is the outer diameter? Is it possible to purchase bulk reels of 100m ?

  • This is quite disappointing. How do you think people would use such a device with no memory and no flash storage for offline use? Would it be such a disaster to add 128Mbits of memory and 4MB flash ?? the cost would be so negligible but productivity would be much higher. I had no choice but get a different board, cheaper, More gates, both SRAM & flash, power protection, a couple of buttons and some more features..

  • Production date? Production date is very important as components inside the paste wear-off after 6 months of PRODUCTION date (yes, not case opening date).

  • from my experience, these are EMI bombs. Make sure you don’t have any non-differential encoders or other sensitive parts in the system.

  • like narpat, I too want to use this for telemetry. Did you actually try what you wrote or is it theoretical. I also think it is bad configuration as two identical devices should generally RX/TX the same way.

  • I’m trying to drive a micro stepper with the driver and have a small problem. The recommended current for this motor is 0.1A and the voltage 12V. I went over the specs a noticed that he lowest current limit is 375mA. Is there a way to limit the current even more? thanks

No public wish lists :(
