  • I see that this product has been discontinued.
    Are there plans to create an updated replacement for this board?
    Would the replacement be designed for the PI B+? Would it use a different chip? When might a replacement be available?

  • Will this help? http://pydoc.org/2.5.1/termios.html "tcdrain(...) tcdrain(fd) -> None Wait until all output written to file descriptor fd has been transmitted."

  • I am interested in the new board design using the Max13487. Will Sparkfun be carrying these soon? If not does anyone know where I can find one or find the design and parts? I've been messing around with the 485 breakout board now for about a month and it is extremely difficult to get reliable fast communication. At best so far I'm only able to get communication speed to about 1/3 as fast as it should be and I still have some errors. When I use a USB to 485 it works flawlessly, except I don't want to use USB for the finished product.

No public wish lists :(
