  • I tried to find a link for you but unfortunately we get our connectors directly from a manufacturer that does not sell to individuals in small amounts. I also could not find anything any where else =(. Sorry about that.

  • Yes, check the Hookup Guide for more info under “Example Code”.

  • Thank you SparkFun visitor! It has been fixed.

  • It’s the Vortex Pok3r. I liked it so much that I used to carry it home from work, until my wife got me a second for my Birthday. You can get it for cheaper if you shop around I think but here’s a link to their website: http://www.vortexgear.tw/vortex2_3.asp?kind=47&kind2=220

  • I agree that those features should be listed. My apologies for somehow not placing those details on this page. You can now find them under the Features tab and I added the datasheet for the SAMD21G18A under Documents. You are correct, those are the specs of the micro-controller.

  • Hello Vitor! If you look at the picture of the underside of the Serial Basic, it has a jumper for voltage selection (defaults to 3.3V).

  • They are not labeled, you are correct. The pads are broken out to two test points on the underside of the board by the “RST” silk. You can see them in the pictures if you look carefully. You’ll need to download the board files to determine which one is which, and you can find those under the “Documents” tab. Happy hacking!

  • Sorry for the mix up and thank you for the comment update =)!

  • That was my mistake, we only carry the module that broadcasts in the 915 MHz range.
