  • You’ll probably have much better chance getting to talk to an engineer if you go to their R&D office in person. For an undergraduate senior design project, I went with a group of students to a local company (Invacare) and we got to talk to engineers and they gave us free parts. We had no luck getting any information from them over the phone or email. We decided to come to the main office, and we scheduled a meeting with them within a week. So, just go there and say you’re working on a senior design project or a thesis.

    It looks like their R&D office might be in Westford, MA. If somebody from the community lives there, they might be able to talk to them and get some technical details.


    Good luck!

  • It’s a good product. Some may be wary of buying a third party programmer, but I got it working with MPLAB almost immediately. The ZIF sockets are nice. Too bad it’s not MATLAB compatible though. ;)

No public wish lists :(
