  • Given the way the baud command is set up, I strongly suspect that it can go faster, if you find the right value. It looks like it's a standard divider-style, though probably with some extra bit stuffed in there since faster baud rates seem to be in a separate range. Of course, when they list the same value (0xAE) for both 9600 baud and 128000baud, I'm guessing that anybody looking to speed it up will just have to try a bunch of values and measure what comes out to derive the appropriate formula.

    There's still no chance this thing will ever actually capture 1600x1200x15fps and be able to send it anywhere...

  • No, these cables follow the generally accepted passive PoE standard of putting ground on pins 7&8 and power on 4&5. Many active PoE implementations are designed to fall back to this passive method. Even units designed for the opposite polarity should (read: sometimes) have a bridge rectifier to make it irrelevant.
    The bigger potential problem is if your gear doesn't use the same 5.5x2.1mm jack that this does. If there's room for improvement, it'd be a selection of the top few common connector sizes.

  • What happened to the bare MN5010 module? It used to be here, and I'd really like to develop for it directly since board space is an issue...

  • I copied the layout of the RF section for my own board from this one, but I can't get the radio to work when I run an identical configuration otherwise.
    Can someone at Sparkfun please confirm that the values in the schematic are accurate to the shipping parts, and would you consider publishing the Eagle PCB files as well?

  • I want to echo the first question, but more specifically: JST is not a connector type, it's an entire company that sells many dozens of different types. Please update the description with both the connector pitch and the actual series.
