chicken 630 Posted December 31, 2015 Author Share Posted December 31, 2015 Have you consider using Molex's Eurostyle 39501 and 39502 series connectors? (search on eBay for 3.5mm pluggable screw terminal block connector) What's the status of dAISy BoosterPack? Thanks for the Molex SKUs and Ebay query. 3.5mm terminal blocks look like a very common, standardized format with plenty of cheap options from various vendors. The BoosterPack is a bit on the back burner right now. While it's nice as a breakout for the Si446x family of radio ICs, using it is pretty complex, particularly if you want to do more than just replicate dAISy on a F5529 LaunchPad. I'm thinking about adding a G2553 onto the BoosterPack to abstract away the receiver part. Then an Energia library could receive the AIS messages via serial (or I2C??) and provide more convenient interfaces to build applications on top. Also thinking about more popular form factors, e.g. a RasPi Hat or Arduino Shield. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
