  • Hookup guide -> Error 404

    Edit: It works now

  • Currently, my only other idea is a jumper cap on a 3pin 90degree header (bigger but easier)

    0) If you are worried about bumping the slide switch, have you considered the possibility of bumping the jumper with something conductive like a screwdriver so as to briefly connect the 5V pad?

    1) Bumping a slide switch is one of the harder ways to send 5V to 3.3V electronics, given that USB/input power is 5V+ and those pins are always exposed for accidental wiring

    2) The bump would have to be exactly in the right spot and direction to have a chance at toggling the switch

    3) You could tell people to put a bit of clear tape over it to rule out bumping entirely

    4)It wouldn't affect the QWIIC connector (which must always be 3.3V)

    5) People who install a shield that could potentially be destroyed would automatically block the slide-switch from view

    6) This form factor is most useful for rapid prototyping of ideas, not building a mission-critical product. The speed afforded by a slide switch is therefore justified.

    7) Most non-I2C parts are 5V or 5V tolerant anyways, at-least in my experience

  • Looking forward to another production run...I missed this one :(

  • [Note: I was instructed to move my comment from the redboard qwiic to this product] If it wouldn't be too much trouble, could you replace the voltage selection solder jumper with either a small switch or a header that accepts a jumper in one of two positions (in the next revision)? Solder jumpers make it too easy to create unintended circuits once they have been switched more than once due to residual solder.

  • Can we get a QWIIC version of this display or something similar? Yes, I know I could retrofit one to have the connector but that's not very elegant.

  • "The Artemis exceeds at low power voice recognition." should probably be "The Artemis excels at low power voice recognition."

  • Could this detect a squirrel? I'm making a nut dispenser :D

  • But how is this a part of Internet of THINGs if it doesn't have WiFi?

  • Good observation, thanks you :)
