  • I put together a video review here: http://vimeo.com/63987653

    I think it’s a great piece of gear, but I was quite underwhelmed with the lack of any kind of glitch filtering network on the encoder outputs.

  • A warning to potential micro-B buyers.

    Sure, it will take less space on your PCB, but I guarantee that this connector will eventually break off your board unless you have a mechanical strain relief to back it up. It’s happened to me twice, on two different boards, and it’s always at the most inconvenient time (like right before a demo to potential customers)

    so BEWARE! don’t use this unless it’s absolutely necessary. mini-B has much better strain relief.

No public wish lists :(
