  • Why does SparkFun choose to have such a good price on this normally expensive part, yet charge $1.50 for a cheap dual-wipe DIP socket? To be honest, this product is about half the cost of what I'd expect it to be. Those dual-wipe DIP sockets are about 5-10 times as expensive as they should be. Not complaining about the price on the ZIF sockets, but I don't really understand the logic behind it.

  • I would also like to see a breakout board for this connector.

  • Nice, this is one of these "why didn't I think of that first?" cases. Also, I'm sure I'm not the only one to think that this looks almost steampunk-ish.

No public wish lists :(
