  • This board has a design flaw. My little brother purchased (3) and all of them do not make good contact on pin 1 unless you push in on the white imp module (after the card is seated). I just tested the (1) board I purchased from Amazon (supplied by Sparkfun) and it has the same problem. I performed the following test to confirm. Use electric imp Wiki example to output a PWM on pin 1 of the April board. The signal only appears on April board pin 1 when you press in on the White Imp Module. I am an electrical engineer and this is a design defect not operator error. I hope Sparkfun fixes it because I can only imagine how frustrating this must be for people new to electronics like my little brother.

No public wish lists :(
