  1. Got a new one, this time it supports the I2C communication protocol. http://www.noritake-elec.com/evalkit-sample.php
  2. Just came across this promotion. A board house in China is offering five free boards for open source projects. They even pay shipping. http://www.electronics-lab.com/blog/?p=24003 The boards must be 1-2 layer Max 10x15cm size Seems to be a way for them to flesh out some areas on their site with some OpenSource boards. Some may be interested.
  3. I'm glad a couple of you found my post useful and got a new instrument. It's been surprisingly useful for detecting bad caps. D in particular, called tan d in datasheet. Having a listed value in a datasheet makes detecting bad caps easier.
  4. By the way I posted an enormous teardown and review at DIYAudio. I can post it here if you want. I wasn't sure where it would fit though. http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/equipment-tools/259415-der-ee-de-5000-true-lcr-100khz.html
  5. Just a heads up, I usually don't link to ebay sales but this one is too good. The following seller on ebay is selling the Der EE DE-5000 for $82 shipped to the USA. This is a STEAL of a deal (about $30 cheaper than usual when you factor in the options that are included), several people have ordered and received it as described. It includes the optional SMD tweezers, optional short aligator leads and optional guard lead. For those that don't know, Der EE is the OEM for the IET Labs DE-5000. This is a true LCR meter which measures a variety of funcitons in a controlled manner. It can measure at
  6. Note I said NEW! Used Tek analog scopes are a whole different ball game. They are typically very reliable and a great starter scope.
  7. The DS1102E is an ancient model. The DS1074Z is a great value, in fact one of the best, but not without its drawbacks. For example, it has a max sample rate of 1GSa/s on all channels combined. Use a single channel you get that rate, use two it drops to 500MSa/s per channel, three or more or drops further to 250MSa/s per channel. Most of the time this is a non-issue but in the rare situation where you need it, its something to know about. That isn't to detract from its value, especially when you consider that it is hackable to enable all of the decode features, bandwidth, etc. Add on top of tha
  8. Don't forget iTeadStudio they are a direct competitor with Seeed. Tend to be a tad bit cheaper but not always . I ordered some boards recently from itead the quality was very solid. I chose DHL shipping, expensive but we needed them ASAP. Boards left Shenzen Sunday night my time, arrived Tuesday morning my time.
  9. For those that got the 512x32. Noritake is offering a chance to review the display and then get a free Lantronix Xport LAN module for communicating with the display over TCP/IP http://forum.noritake-elec.com/post/sck3900512x32h01-6866623
  10. Was browsing GarageJournal and came across this. KC Tool Co is having a sale on some Wera Screwdrivers: Wera Precision Screwdriver Set A $20.99 Wera Precision Screwdriver Set B $20.99 Wera Kraftform PLUS 900 series Set $34.99 Wera Kraftform PLUS 300 Series Set $26.99 Plus some others: Sale Link These screwdrivers seem like the perfect sets for your usual electronics hobbyist. Wera is one of the top screwdriver makers in the world (Wiha, Wera, PB Swiss, etc. etc.) Note I emphasized the PLUS on two of the kits because they look the same as the non-plus versions. They Kraftform 300 sets
  11. This one I actually kinda like. I posted it on a computer forum I'm on for the modders to check out. I can see them getting some good use out of this. It's actually really useful when you think about it. You could print button designations on paper and put it underneath. Have it control touch LED's underneath, etc. Very useful for giving some items a custom look.
  12. Someone mentioned in another thread that they put in the comments their address in germany and the received the sample from a european distributor.
  13. Yep, its back again. This time you get to chose between a 114x16 graphic display or a 16x2 character display. The 16x2 is HD44780 compatible making it very easy to retrofit into existing code. http://www.noritake-elec.com/evalkit-sample.php
  14. Congrats to the forum for this new sponsor. Hope it proves top be fruitful for both parties. Sent from my EVO using Tapatalk
