    Any chance you’ll sell that shirt? Or maybe make a system where we send in a picture of our best soldering work to prove we deserve it? That would be so cool!

  • News - New Product Friday: Take … | last year

    In my intro to digital logic class, we used Altera DE-1 FPGA prototype boards. While I don’t like to recommend leaning Verilog, and the Quartus/ModelSim software pretty much sucks, I still learned a ton from it. The board is only a hundred bucks or so and it has 7seg displays and whatnot if this one doesn’t have enough built in stuff to work with.

    Hm, this looks around the right size to stick to the back of a wristwatch. Might be on the big side, but it’s worth trying.

    I love how Sparkfun will post a product, then also say “BTW here are like 3 different AWESOME accessories for it.” eliminates multiple orders from multiple dealers, and ensure compatibility.

  • Product BOK-10764 | about 3 years ago

    I absolutely love this book. Required material for anyone who works with electronics.

  • News - Fritzing! | about 3 years ago

    Well, I should say that I have, ahem acquired the professional version.

  • News - Fritzing! | about 3 years ago

    Well I should qualify that I’m judging from observation. I only ever used Fritzing for one board before I started using Eagle, for the reasons you said. I would say that Fritzing is a little less intimidating for beginners though.

  • News - Fritzing! | about 3 years ago

    Fritzing is really a wonderful program for learning PCB layout. I haven’t used it in a while, as I’ve moved on to the more powerful EagleCAD, but Fritzing can help make that initial learning curve a little softer.

  • News - The Air Harp | about 3 years ago

    Thanks man! Yeah it was a ton of fun. He is such a cool guy, he was really helpful in helping me find a soundfont that sounded like JMJ’s harp. I have a couple semi-crappy videos of it on my youtube channel (connerthomas24) but the real cool part was playing it through a huge sound system for my school’s talent show.

    Or you could just make one out of lasers like I did…
