  • Product GPS-11466 | about a year ago

    If only this nice beast had four holes on its board…

  • Product SEN-11418 | about 2 years ago

    Buying this will save me some time hacking an AdvoCam HD2… Ouch!! Already “out of stock”!

  • News - SparkFun Gets a Subpoena | about 2 years ago

    Dear Honorable Judge, what about people buying Sparkfun products in other stores? (e.g. Watterott in Germany)

  • News - New Product Friday: Never… | about 2 years ago

    Megapixels is not the ultimate solution. More than a higher resolution sensor, we should pray for low-light gain, infrared sensitivity, self-cleaning lens, and so on…

  • News - New Product Friday: Never… | about 2 years ago

    Can’t wait to see some videos from a “cat collar” project using the FlyCamOne…

  • News - March Caption Contest | about 2 years ago

    “Wooondaful! finally my BeagleBone is here!”

  • Product TOL-10951 | about 2 years ago

    Great product, but forget any “precise shaping”: when melted, it is just too soft. I tried to model a Beagleboard doghouse: it was funny, but I did not get what I was dreaming.

    Note that when above a certain temperature, the grains become almost transparent (and later get yellowish).

  • News - According to Pete - Augus… | about 3 years ago

    Hmm… the “According to Pete” icon should be updated – it currently shows some forehead hair that Pete actually does not have.

  • Product BOB-09370 | about 3 years ago

    I accidentally gave 5V input while having set resistors for 5V output: I got some 4.4V output, so, if your 6V source does not drop voltage when sourcing some amps… you’re ok.
    I’ve to praise again this unit. It resisted some minutes of short-circuiting the output. It is working in a humid and dusty environment. Under 3A output, no active cooling is needed (you will see it hot when asking for some 2A, anyway).
    This unit is also smaller and cheaper than a Digikey 3A-rated one (which only features input “up to 18V”).

  • Product PRT-07949 | about 3 years ago

    They actually have “spring” effect (just solder them at a slightly smaller distance; I took measures using actual batteries).
    I only wish they were breadboard-friendly…
