SF order on it's way[shipped!]
February 9, 2010
Since it's been a while since anyone has posted on this forum, just thought I'd post something.
Finally put my order in thats been in the cart on that fateful freeday. added a couple extra things to it as well since I have a mini project going.
Opted to get the polulu trex motor driver as well since my hbridge attempt has yet to work(though I haven't tried to trouble shoot it for a while) .
Got a couple of 20x2's to see what they are like and since they had some sweet hw access. Grabbed a couple of atmel 2313's since they have built in uarts.
Got a couple of lipo cells and a the cheap charger(it's a lipo charger, don't worry)
some random other odds and ends to round out my order.
I put the order in this morning and just got the email that said it's been shipped. fedex says it's been picked up...as I was a bit impatient this time I opted for the 2 day service(extra $5 vs ground) so I should have it by this weekend...just in time for a nice 3 day weekend at that!
Put in a sample order with Microchip for some unio memory for the 20x2 chips since the x2's support this type of mem. Also grabbed some i2c since I was there. Will most likely not get this any time soon, but figured it would be a good start to playing with some of the new type of memory.
Order came in today to my MBE box and they close at 7:30 so I won't be able to pick it up tonight. Will have to pick it up tomorrow morning. Excited, can't wait to play with the stuff...bummed I can't play with the stuff this eve...ah well...soon....very soon....
Package is in hand and currently charging the (lipo)batteries(1 at a time of course). Inspected the order and it looks fine, all parts are in there, sadly nothing extra.. :/ I will look at testing the motor drive this weekend and tinkering with the 20x2.
