New Launchpad just dropped


Recommended Posts

I just got my FR4 LP and there are two things I like right of the bat.

Stacking headers are nice and sturdy, not like the old ones (TI, where can I get them?)

There are four 1/2" stand-offs, so the LP sits nicely on my desk.

FWIW, 1/2" standoffs were first added to the new FR5969LP, and are a great addition. I'm still waiting for my new LP, haven't received a shipping notification yet.

Hmmm, none of my FR5969's came with stand-offs, they only have mounting holes (version 2 only.)

Out of curiosity, does the LCD add a lot or weight to the board? It looks interesting, but it also looks like it would be heavy.

It looks like it's a driverless LCD screen. Since it's just two glass plates with crystals sandwiched in between the weight is not that much.

Of course, everything is relative, so yeah, it does add weight, but so does the board that's carrying the LCD.
