    Or, you can save more than $10 if you have sampling privileges, or know a overseas “SparkFun” shop ;)

    It’s sort of like how hulu works; pay a premium for something now (or in red) or wait a while for someone to release the same exact board (Thanks OSHW!) often in blue at a fairly more reasonable price.

  • Product COM-10079 | about 4 days ago

    The datasheet doesn’t include the actual dimension data, but rather includes a link to another document that does have it.

  • Product COM-10079 | about 4 days ago

    It’s a physical design limitation, And it is valid until 2199, not 2099. Smart software could compensate by maintaining it’s own century counter in the RTC’s SRAM. However i doubt this device could last more than 200 years in the field. Wikipedia has a nice article on semiconductor failure modes if your interested.

  • Product DEV-12749 | about 5 days ago

    Anyone else have problems with the PCDunio USB Micro-B connector used for power tearing off the board after a few connect/disconnects?

  • Product PRT-12845 | about 5 days ago

    Well, the case is not transparent but translucent. Black would give the most contrast, or a clever lighting setup using the case itself for lighting diffusion.

  • Product SEN-11084 | about a month ago

    Depends on how waterproof the case really is.

  • Product SEN-11084 | about a month ago

    There CAN be a change in air pressure. External pressure upon the nylon case can influence the pressure inside the nylon case.

  • Product TOL-11100 | about 2 months ago

    The product photo needs to be reshot (or photo-shopped), The straight mosquito hemostat is missing.
