Already been looking on google but finding it difficult to find a uk supplier of etch resist ink in formats other than the pen. After a bit of research into the formula for the ink itself I found that i could spraypaint with a stencil which would work. This led me to the idea of acrylic ink in an in...

Hi all, I had a thought about this earlier in the day and was wondering if anyone has tried this. In order to make my PCBs easier and quicker i was considering using an old cartridge and refilling it with acrylic based indian ink (like calligraphy ink). I should then be able to print direct onto my ...

Roving Networks RN-42

 by lostangel556 ¦  Sun Apr 25, 2010 9:54 am ¦  Forum: New Product Ideas ¦  Topic: Roving Networks RN-42 ¦  Replies: 0 ¦  Views: 469

How about releasing the RN-42 from Roving Networks as well as the RN-41. Basically its the same as the RN-41 but with an shorter range (50 - 60 ft), lower power consumption (26uA in sleep mode) and at an lower cost. Ideal for those of us that dont need the extra range. http://www.rovingnetworks.com/...

Im curious about this aswell. As an bit of an noobie to the world of circuit design and making my own pcb i've been wondering if there was an Cad-like program that will also allow for testing of the components. Ideally some sort of virtual circuit builder would i think be very handy so that we can p...

why? because sparkfun doesn't want to hear negative opinions of their customers? No, the people who use this forum in a constructive manner don't want to be bothered by the complaints from people who didn't get through. -Bill Hey don't get me wrong - I'm not bitter at all and am going forward with ...

What a fiasco! I've been trying to checkout for over an hour now getting nothing but timeouts. This is going to do nothing but engender ill will towards Sparkfun and loose them a bunch of customers (including me), who have better things to do with their time. If all it takes is not recieving an fre...

Seems an lot of ppl only created accounts for today and thats all. then come to the forum to moan.

might have been nice if new accounts were frozen yesterday so its those with accounts that get to take advantage of the free day but hey.. tis the world we live in.

30 minutes of trying from the UK. Managed to see the main page once or twice. but as soon as on the shopping cart, it dies.

Still wont stop me coming back later though as there is some parts on there that i need to finish my prototype.
