  • News - SparkFun Gets a Cease and… | about 5 years ago

    Sparkfun, you have my complete support in this silly case against you. I hope you do not give in and change name but rest assured your customers will remain even if you are bullied into giving in: you’re the best there is. Keep up the good work.

    A word of encouragement for potential solderers!
    I soldered these successfully with no trouble at all. I only learned to solder a few days earlier by watching a short tutorial on youtube so I’m not at all expert.
    I would almost certainly have got it wrong if I had not read the advice here so it’s great that bearsinthesea and BobSomers shared their experiences.
    I just wanted to point out that with care there is no problem at all soldering these sockets.

    I completely agree with ARMinator. It would be VERY useful to have the 3V version of this relay. Very much hope you start selling it.

    The XBee is indeed an excellent wireless module. Be careful about deciding which series (1 or 2/2.5) to get though. The series 2/2.5 modules do not have the extremely useful io line passing that the series 1 modules have! In fact unless you need the mesh networking, you should probably go for series 1.

No public wish lists :(
