We had the cells fabbed in China for us. Well, they made us feel special but I think they're just stock cell products. The high efficiency cells look awesome. But they won't return our calls. And they've got some hairy export requirements. Speaking of which, we at SFE are starting to get paranoid be...

GM862-GPS arrived today. So did a big lot of GM862-Quads GM862-Quad-Pythons. We're still trying to get the GE family out of Telit. They really weren't expecting the north america market to give them so much interest :) Cool Components ! How neat! It's like what Spark Fun was only 2.5 years ago... L...

Sorry we didn't list at same time. I was really paranoid about the cost of the smaller BB. That thing is really hard to find! We are having new ones made in China for a much lower price. Let us know if you have any other shield ideas.

Most of the older SFE schematics are Protel. All Olimex schematics are Eagle I believe. Our newer products (starting around May of this year) are Eagle based. I used Protel SE for a couple years, then DXP. Finally, we looked into the Altium suite. $12k was what we were quoted and was way too much. W...

Hi, It's a work in progress. The Bluetooth SMD module is actually one of our first RoHS compliant items... And I totally missed it. Fixed now. When in doubt, just email us and we'll check the status. We're also trying to setup a pricing discount tier thing - 10% off for 10-99pcs of any item. Also ad...

Hi Leon, I see 4 emails from you in the general email box: 9:54am 9:56am 9:58am 10:08am From today, the 6th. We're moving as fast as we can. To answer your question, we have very few dimensional drawings and we don't have the ability to generate them as easy as you would like. It's about a 45 minute...

Thanks for the heads up! I have have been really put off by VTI in the past. They rarely deliver on their product releases. If you do see this sensor ever actually get to market, please let us know and we'll spin a breakout for it.

DRC Bot is up and running. Check your spam filters. Because we send jpg attachments, we get spam canned.

Let me know if you're still having problems and I'll try to dig out the emails.

Why do you think our datalogger stock keeps fluctuating? :) The LPC2138 went out of stock 2-3 mnths ago. Shortly after, we snagged the last 150pcs of the LPC2148 on the face of the earth. Phillips was having wafer fabrications problems. We recently got a shipment from Germany of both 2138s and 2148s...
