  • I see you’re using the SMD version of the MSGEQ7. Will you be selling them?

  • Will this work to send data to an iOS device or is it a purely audio profile?-Keith

  • Dimensions are ‘all over the place’. Look at data sheet. You have big nickels. Check out Heli-Max hmxm2037 for small and digital (not analog) and 10 bucks

  • And oh yes, Eagle works well on the mac. When I do a layout on my Mac, I bring it into PCB-GCODE and then to my Windows machine which controls my CNC to cut the board and the g-code looks like hell in translation.

  • I’ve been beta testing Rhino for Mac for a few years now. It’s very good but incomplete. They’ve been promising a Mac version for a very long time.

  • See the ‘User Manual’, Page 6, Figure 3, “Relationship Between Target Object and Distance from the TMP006”. It is directional or how could you discern one objects temperature from another’s. ‘How’ directional is a function of distance of course. If you want to get an idea of the directionality of thermopiles, buy a cheap, complete non-contact thermometer (freight harbor has them for 10 bucks) and play with it. You should be able to interpolate it’s functioning and decide if something like this will work for your purpose.

  • I was looking to use this TMP006 but was dissuaded by seeing it is in a BGA package. I can’t tell by your picture but I’m I right that this only comes in this package or did you find an alternate package.-Keith

  • Are the dimensions listed anywhere? Also, would this track an IR LED?

  • What? No Jacob’s Ladder?

  • Looking at the board, save for the pinout being a tad (just a few minor pins excchanged) different than the Elm327, you should be able to use the readily available ELM schematic. I know because I made a board for the ELM that worked well and the parts on board look identical down to the 510 ohm 1 Watt resistors. The only difference might be they improved one of the inputs with an old cheapo comparator rather than the discrete parts in the ELM schematic.
    And the chip from them is $10 in onesy’s not $14. I just spoke to a rep and he said it goes down to $8 for 100 pieces.

No public wish lists :(
