  1. Yes, also known as the absolute BEST USB Expansion port ever. I had to fight a few people in my office for that at the white elephant a few years ago :-) Turns out the segments missing weren't from the tube not being soldered right, but rather my inability to solder surface mount correctly. One of my co-workers let me use the lab's microscope to check the connections and I was slightly horrified how ugly it looked... needless, it's been repaired and now all the segments work. (if anyone is missing segments, it's probably the driver, not the tube). I'm getting him to post his tube when he's
  2. I got it to light up!After a while and some CCS "No Emulator Found" errors the clock is running + and not over heating (thank you bluehash and GeekDoc for the inductors).Now, I get to go and fix my faulty soldering work on the tube pins that didn't connect (missing segments) and I'm ready to go.

  3. 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 ;-) http://www.toxel.com/inspiration/2010/04/16/recycled-circuit-board-creations/
  4. If it's still available I'd love to get in for 2 and one set of buttons. I'll message you my address :-)
  5. Hi Cube, Sadly, I got it from the resale store (Tanner Electronics) and they couldn't find the data sheet. I only attached the colour code reading guide. I did try it with both of the pots turned way down and it's the same. It delays, but still gets hot. I'm not near any equiptment today, so I wasn't able to test it out. I'll make sure to do it when I get home and will get back to you! Not sure if it helps, but I poked around the data sheet and came across something that could be interesting. The sample schematic for this part: http://www.ti.com/tool/pmp7006 (no idea why it's not
  6. Not sure if this helps at all in the trouble shooting , but I replaced my inductor on mine with another 68uH inductor (here) 2012-10-25 13.48.39 by laraswanland, on Flickr to verify code: http://www.learnabout-electronics.org/a ... tors04.php it still got hot, just much slower. are we sure it's just the inductor?]
  7. Will do, should be in your email tonight !
  8. Not sure if this is the same tube, http://www.ebay.com/itm/310320614443?ss ... 1497.l2649
  9. Is there any place we can get a replacement tube? My second one came cracked, which ... sucks, but luckily I have another one to try out.
  10. Thank you, that's really helpful :-)
  11. Does anyone know if there is a Fritzing Part for the MSP430 LaunchPad?
