Launchpad v1.4 PCBs FREE with Every Order

44 posts in this topic

I have some very good news.

TI had a left over v1.4 PCBs before they bumped to v1.5. I have quite a stack of them and can make great standalone Launchpads or as a souvenir. I feel this is a great way to give back to the community.

 

Many thanks to LariSan for this. I'd like to personally thank her for her thoughtfulness. This would just be discarded if not for her.

You can thank her on her twitter handle at @MCUniversiTI

 

You can get one for free by placing an order at The 43oh Store. However minimum($2.84) shipping still applies. You are free to order just the PCBs.

Follow the store link above. Also check email.

 

I'd love to see if anyone comes up with something to do with these. It felt like a shame that they were just going to get scrapped... maybe 1 part hopeful and 1 part joking... here are some inspirational ideas ;-)

I'm sure they will get appropriately used. :) Thanks again.

no shipping option to new zealand? :-(

Added shipping to NZ.

 

Can we just order a full panel? What's the shipping cost?

 

I want to just frame it to decorate my work area. :smile:

I'll get back to you on that. Should be able to.

This is very nice, thank you LariSan and bluehash!

 

However, international shipping from the 43oh store is 7,50$, which I believe is quite high for two pcbs.

Is it possible to ship these cheaper, in an ordinary letter maybe, bluehash?

Or could you raise the maximum quantity to eight (one panel)?

 

I would love to build some el'cheapo target boards out of these, one with a ZIF socket maybe.

Don't get me wrong, you offer these boards for free and you have some expense on packaging, labeling and shipping, you're doing a great job! :thumbup:

But i can get two preassembled Launchpads directly from TI for 8,60$, this equals two of the bare v1.4 pcbs + 7,50$ shipping + sockets and buttons. :!!!:

I thought we were ordering panels to begin with?

Mine arrived a few days ago, this is what I came up with:

Not tested yet, but nothing exciting there.

I used a 6 pin header, pulled off the sixtht straight pin and put in a rectangular one, which is soldered to the next available ground.
