    As you can see now, the first one is now invisible. When the capacitors are completely recharged the second one will appear to disappear also, watch!

    NOT CORRECT - there is currently (11/28/2013) no part like this in the SF Eagle Library.

    Can these be set to operate at 8 Mhz instead of 20?

    @Kamaqasi - thanks for the quick reply… I’m trying to re-utilize the FTDI headers to power the pro-mini due to circuit board real-estate issues.

    I’m unable to locate a schematic that specify’s the tolerance level for the VCC pin(s) on the pro-mini - or that illustrates the relationship (if any) between the FTDI header RX0 and TX1 connections and the RX and TX connections on the port side of the circuit board.

    I only need VCC; GND;RX and Pin 12 for my project - was hoping I could use the same FTDI connections that are used to program the board - with the regulated 5.0v Wall Wart connected to the FTDI Header VCC / GND pins.

    Would you know if the RX/TX connections in the FTDI header are connected to the RX/TX connections on the side of the pro-mini?

    Thanks again for your help…

    What is the tolerance on the ftdi vcc pin? Im using a 5v wall wart (SFE) to power the project & it appears to be outputting around 5.5 v Would prefer not to use the raw pin if possible…

    Can someone point me towards a tutorial / sample circuit that demonstrates using one of these?

    I’m interested in knowing what voltage is required at the “B” leg to enable voltage thru C to E. Can there be different voltages between B and C/E? Meaning - can I use 3v on B to enable 5v thru C to E?

    I second the suggestion - you could encourage the competitors to document their entry construction and process by awarding points. Should be easy to verify the documentation onsite with a smartphone - then award the points.

    @CrazyCreator - have you seen any examples of how to rewire the RPi to Arduino Adapter. In light of Arduino Kit availability - might be a good fit.


No public wish lists :(
