Guide to the AVR Engineering for Techs.

  • I’m coming in hot.

  • Tony Stark was able to build this in a cave!! … with a box of E-Textile scraps.

  • I made a small VB app to design custom graphics for this chip.

  • Hey Nate did you must have blocked out the old site search. Thats the day I remember the most in SF history.
    Great speech BTW. I graduated from EE 2 years before you and I still remember the days upon days upon days that it took to manually go though the Electrosonic catalog (which use to cost $100) and then find the datasheets in the library/contact the manufacturers.
    I hate to say it but Sparkfun and Google taught me more about electronics then 4 years of EE.

  • I’ve used quite a few soldering irons, but this one is by far the best.
    It goes from room temp to max in under 20 sec.
    Its very lightweight (it feels more like your holding a marker then an iron).
    The tips last x10 longer then any budget iron.
    If your thinking of buying this iron do it, you wont regret it.

No public wish lists :(
