    Is it possible to dismount the LCD from the board and put it at 90 angle to be used in a projection setup?

    I thought I’d do a smart move by moving from the gravitech Unos (which are rock solid and comes with USB) to these but I’m disappointed now…

    The first one failed after 2 month of 8h/day use average. It was simply PWMing 3 channels to a led strip and now it’s dead. It’s stuck on idk what but all 3 channels are full,all the time.

    The second one is about to go into a customer’s project and I’m thinking about scrapping it as I won’t ship something that fail in a month,not good for the business…

    Also,they are very tricky to get running with the arduino IDE with the sparkfun FTDI cable,it took me a couple of tries to get it working correctly.

    I don’t think they are early versions as they were bought 4 month ago…

    nvm,problem found. My embeded USB hub in the front pannel is busted. threw it to the back one and it’s fine now.

    I can’t get this to work. w7 keep throwing “Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)” at me.

    Tried FTDI installer/files and no luck. When updating,state I already ahve the latest…

    what’s wrong with that cable?

    Quick question: I see that it’s rated 5-12V, would it work relliably with a car’s 12V supply which is 11.8-13.8 V or do I really need a 7809 in between to even things out?


    According to the datasheet of the MIC5205 I get :

    Supply Input Voltage (VIN)…………–20V to +20V Enable Input Voltage (VEN)…………–20V to +20V Input Voltage(VIN)………………..+2.5V to +16V Enable Input Voltage VEN)………….0V to VIN

    As I see nothing else hardwired to the RAW pin else than U2,am I correct assuming this won’t fail plugged to a Car battery?

    verichip won’t sell to public cause they want the implantation control. I had a chat with them prior to buying this.

    I drive a motorbike at 180 mph thus I don’t seriously see RF radiation as a threat.

    For my implantation the chip sat in a sterilizing solution (not iodine since I’m allergic) for 15 straight minutes,no less. All worked out perfectly good.

    After testing, people determined that if you would crush your hand hard enough to break the chip,it is very likely that your bone structure is beyond “broken”. As a mech Eng I work a lot with heavy engines and parts,got my hands cut and crushed a couple of time and I must admit that the only time the chip did hurt myself was when a dog bit me directly on it. 2 days after it was brand new,still working.

    yes,I have had one for about 1year and a half now. The tumor everyone is freaking about is for chip with the bonding coating on it,the one they use with animals to prevent the chip from moving all around. Mine did move but settled in a “dent” between 2 bones and it’s not getting away now.

    As SF said, they do not recommend to do implantation and nobody else than you should be held responsible for your actions. That said,It’s always nice to see people’s face when they touch the chip under your skin =P

    Ask a professional body artist to do the job,people that do scarification or the like.

No public wish lists :(
