Mine arrived today, I had to file down the corners with a nail file to get them past the enclosure, but that worked fine.
OK, documentation to be found here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FTGV1Mn1hwayEaKut5Ej6vmWdjirVlP9TQqyA0wRs34/edit# seems to be open for edit?
Some are cool some have issues:
First of all, they connect very sturdy and providing a mounting hole for a stand off is very thoughtful. Simple and useful.
why is the numbering of the LEDs in different order as the numbering of the buttons? This makes no sense to me that
the LED next to button 1 uses Basepin+0 while the button uses Basepin+7
the LED next to button 2 uses Basepin+1 while the button uses Basepin+6
the LED next to button 3 uses Basepin+2 while the button uses Basepin+5
the LED next to button 4 uses Basepin+3 while the button uses Basepin+4
why not in the same order?
-Serial Host. This one is just nice.
First thought was why 8x7 not 8x8 but then I saw charlieplexing. So it needs constant refreshing if more then one line is used. Not really nice, but usable.
Having a shift register or two would ease that pain, but it is what it is and @Peter Jakacki
already writes Characters on it...
-Digital Video Out. This one is just nice.
-Mini Prototyping Board. Way to small, needs to be longer/wider with a stand off on the end.
-Serial Device. This one is just nice.
-Goertzel. Absolute no clue what this may be for, But looks nice!
This one is just wonderful. It is quite large and will need the stand off hole provided.
But all connectors are very solid and good reachable, just wonderful.
So thanks Parallax, I am quite happy with the set .
I just need to figure out what the Goerzel is usable for. Hand waving? Gestures? 3D positioning?
What was the name of that instrument using hand waving?
Is there any plan to produce more of those modules? I would like to have 7 more of the LED modules, just for giggles...
