  • Is it ESD safe?

  • I wish that I could come, but Colorado is quite a distance away from me. :( Hopefully someday I will be able to come out and visit.

  • CuteDigi and LinkSprite are now carrying the pcDuino3 Nano, so are there any plans at SparkFun to carry it?

  • I have been looking at the product sheets for the Honeywell humidity / temperature sensors, and there are ones that are described as "without filter, non-condensing", and "with filter, condensation resistant". So, i think the answer is that only sensors that have a filter on them can be used outdoors, and since the humidity sensor on the weather shield does not have one, that might explain why it is producing really high readings. The data sheet for the HTU21D says that there is a optional PTFE filter/membrane, so that would allow the weather shield to be used outdoors.

  • The Beagle Bone Black has a faster clock, but The Raspberry Pi can be overclocked to 1GHz without voiding the warranty. The Raspberry Pi has a dual video core, and 512MB of RAM, which is the same amount as the Beagle Bone Black (although the Raspberry Pi has DDR2 RAM, while the Beagle Bone Black uses DDR3). So it all comes down to what you are going to be using it for. The Beagle Bone Black is more geared for hardware projects, and The Raspberry Pi for programming.

  • Again, nice job. Something that would also be nice, is if you posted the code on github, and a link was posted to it on the break out board web page. It would be good if sparkfun posted code for boards other than the Arduino on github.

  • Just a suggestion: You might want to put this item on sale to help reduce the inventory before you move.

  • I am having a problem with the humidity sensor. When I power up the board, the humidity data is negative. The data eventually switches to positive (example: switching from about -68% to 56%), although this can take less than a minute to almost 10 minutes. The Temperature data is fine, and I am using the HTU21D_Arduino_Example program. Does any one know what's going on? Update: the humidity sensor is bad - returning to sparkfun.

  • I have an idea for a new version of the RedBoard, one that has a connector for a Lithium-ion battery,a on-board charging circuit, voltage booster regulator to supply 5 volts to the board and a on/off switch.

  • Hello, I am new to writing Python programs, and I appreciate your tutorial on interfacing the humidity and temperature sensor to the Raspberry Pi. I noticed in the first two lines of the 'Tweeting weather station' program that you wrote 'from twython import Twython', and 'from smbus import SMBus'. Is there a particular reason that you did this, rather than writing 'import twython' and 'import smbus'?

No public wish lists :(
