  • Thanks @VonSzarvas! Rich can get started on new enclosures.

  • Hi,

    Any chance to get an enclosure for the old board?

    Kind regards, Samuel Lourenço
  • I'm sure @W9GFO can make one up for you when he builds the new one. They are done per order and sold through Esty.

    I wonder if I can just change out the chip on my current ES board...

    I was wondering If I could send Parallax my ES board and they could put in a new chip and would that be much cheaper than a brand new board?
  • Replacing the chip on your existing board would involve a lot of laborious hand rework, which is much more expensive than a whole new board manufactured by even the smallest scale assembly line techniques. At work I am the sort of guy who might replace your chip. They charge $150 an hour for my labor. (No, I don't make nearly that much, they are covering the infrastructure necessary to keep me supported in my job.)
  • The rev2 board has improvements as well, so I'd think they'd prefer to do use that anyway. The SD slot is in better place for fast data and the power supply is improved on the USB and I/O sections.
    "We suspect that ALMA will allow us to observe this rare form of CO in many other discs.
    By doing that, we can more accurately measure their mass, and determine whether
    scientists have systematically been underestimating how much matter they contain."

    Before you destroy it, I buy it to ease your pain for a new one. A lot of the stuff I try to do need more then one P2 but don't need anything of rev B yet so I would be fine with rev A.

    Plus, the Rev. A board has some historical value already, so it would be a shame to modify it. You should accept Mike's offer. You'll get an entire new board. It is a win-win.

    I checked on the discounts. The discount for repeat customers expired after six months. I think what I will do is create a coupon code that is valid for 48hrs and send that to all previous customers, and I do want my previous customers to get a discount.

    My reasoning for 48 hrs is that I think that a previous customer will probably know right away wether or not they want to order another enclosure, and the short time frame can allow a deeper discount.

    Please give a heads up at least a week before you do the coupons. I guess you will be using our email address?

    The enclosure with the fan was great. I also will be purchasing at least two.
