Availability of F4B/F16B/Expansions?
« on: February 03, 2017, 05:39:14 PM »



I'm kind of curious if there will be any availability or group buy or anything of the F16B and expansion boards.  I had really good luck with them this year (with the industrial BBB) and kind of wanted to grab a few more.

Dan,
 I have a few BBB Controllers I would be willing to part with if you were interested from the Coop in 2015.

I have the following Unassembled controllers (with all the additional parts purchased from Mouser required to build them):

1 - F16B $60
2 - F16B Expansion boards $30 ea
2 - F4B $30 ea

I'll say the same price 60 for the f16b and 30 each for the f4b.

Back to the original post...Dan mentions industrial BBBs? I have had two BBBs and one BBG and had mixed results with either of them....is the reference to "industrial" mean that they have performed well, or is there something above and beyond what I might have bought previously from my local electronics shop up here.

I had several issues with the normal BBB and BBG in 2015, mostly when the temperature dropped.   For 2016, I switched them all out for the industrial BBB:

which has a much wider temperature range and didn't have a single hick up at all with the controllers this year.

Thanks.  I'll pick one up and try them.  I purchased one of the cards Chris is building support for to drive panels.
