  • An unofficial (user created) tour of the Qduino’s pins is now available…

    … and notes on what is in the library…

  • Consider one “vote” for how you have it in V1.0 being just fine cast, please.

  • Many thanks!!! LOTS of Good Stuff in the above… I will make incorporation of the same into my page a priority… note that the page already says how good the Sparkfun customer support is! (^_^)

  • Trying to get to grips with this promising board. I don’t have Eagle on my machine. (I use KiCad). A high res .pdf of the schematic would be very, very welcome… and perhaps help all of the Kickstarter supporters make progress. My contact details at the end of the page I’ve started about Qduino…

  • To me the most obvious “must have” shield is the battery shield. I say this because the Wifi capability seems to be a big feature of the Photon… and if your connection to “the rest of the world” is wireless, it seems a bit of a downer to end up tethered, anyway, by the need for power. If I’m not mistaken, the system could then be given a small solar panel to make it indefinitely untethered, depending on where you live. That would make it great for going up on a roof, or in a tree, for weather or security monitoring.

    But a close second would have to be the OLED shield. I am a recent “convert”, having just learned how crisp and clear these are. Even at only 0.66" and 64 x 48 pixels, with the powerful processor behind it, I’m sure the display will be more than enough for all sorts of things. Long strings of text could be output by a scrolling algorithm. (Hint, hint… such a generally useful facility would be a great library project for some kind person, wouldn’t it?!!)

  • This seems a great product… and I put $ where mouth is.

    But with units shipping, a little more technical info might not be before time?

    For instance… battery? Would a Sparkfun Polymer Lithium Ion Battery - 1000mAh PRT-00339… be suitable? (I realize that I have to decide if it holds enough charge for my wants. Other than that: suitable?

  • I like the 5v version of this enough that I wrote KiCad .lib and .mod files for those who want to put an Arduino Pro Mini on a PCB of their own design.

    Free.. Should work just as well with 3v3 version?

    The small size of the Arduino Pro Mini reduces the expense of the PBB you are making, as there is little board area under the Arduino.

  • Loving this little beauty.. AND the support level of the PJRC.com forum/ community. Ported my Arduserver to a Teensy 3.1 + Wiz820io, connected with Ethernet/ SD card shield… went well. Details, including sourcecode, at Arduserver.com

  • For a complete Arduino based burglar/ fire alarm system which could respond to this sensor, see…

    Note that it has the necessary “Wait for sensors to stabilize” code, among other things

No public wish lists :(
