  • Product COM-10969 | last week

    it’s identical to a wire, but with the same body as a resistor so it can be grabbed by a machine. there’s no reason to include them in this kit meant for hobbyists. just use a wire.

    yes, though ceramic or film caps that would be used in exact values in filters, not electrolytics

  • Product CAB-09741 | last week

    They can grab a single SOIC pin, but the plastic head is so big you can only probe one at a time, not 2 adjacent ones.

    “25 each”? Should be a lot more 10 kΩ and 100 kΩ than other values, since you use those a lot more.

  • Product DEV-09564 | about 2 weeks ago

    Can this easily interface with I²S audio CODECs and use its single-cycle MAC to do basic DSP processing? If not, what board should I use for that?

  • Product KIT-11394 | about a year ago

    Are the waveforms band-limited/anti-aliased?

  • Product TOL-00082 | about a year ago

    I always worry about breathing in lead dust while using these. It’s basically an atomizer spray for liquid lead. Am I just paranoid?

    “We need a good system (forum, FAQ, knowledge DB, etc.) to congregrate all the group intelligence in a useful way.”

    Please please please please please!

    Not a forum. Not an FAQ. The world needs a collaborative design website. You post your project idea and then ask for help from people with different qualifications. “Project title: I have this idea for a project and I’ve designed all the electronics, but I need help from a mechanical engineer”. Each project has a wiki/discussion board for planning and exchanging ideas. Schematics, blueprints, mechanical drawings can be drawn and edited directly on the site like or Maybe a graphical roadmap planning tool. Everything collected together in a repository revision control system so you can see who made what changes to the schematic and fork a project to create your own related project. all the files open source (or private for pay, like github)

    There are lots of tools for collaborative design of software, but none that I know of for hardware. Whoever makes one please let me know. :D

    According to the article, they didn’t get caught.

    also please post the schematics and instructions for installing them in gas pumps, kthx.

No public wish lists :(
