Title: uAmp, uSC and Afterburner After Co-Op Sale is ON
Post by: corey872 on October 01, 2017, 11:02:38 AM
The post co-op sale for uAmp, uSC and Afterburner is OPEN.  Please read carefully:

- No need to post your order here.

- uAmp, $4.75 each - Sold Out for 2017.  Watch for 2018 co-op announcements, May - June 2018.

- Afterburner, $17.00 each - approx. 12 left

- I also have 4 'Blue Dot' uSC V2's from the 2016 co-op for a flat rate of $40.  These function identically to all other uSC's but were assembled with a slightly different variant of the PIC chip and use a different firmware version (pre-installed).

- $3.50 US shipping, $7.00 foreign shipping.

Simply add up the number of units you wish to purchase and add shipping.  The total payment can be submitted to my paypal account PayPal Me (https://www.paypal.me/corey872)

- Be sure to list your intended order quantities in the PayPal note section. 
- Be sure to use the 'Goods and Services' option so PayPal will forward your shipping address.


- Be sure to read above carefully, add your order carefully and make accurate note of your purchase in PayPal. Limited quantities are available.

- If there are discrepancies in your order quantities or payment, I will contact you for clarification, though other orders will be processing at the same time and stock will eventually run out. 




If there are any questions, feel free to post here.

Thanks
Corey

Corey, I am wanting 2 uSC's. Should I go ahead and PayPal you now or what until you confirm availability? (Since there are no other replies to your original post I wasn't sure if people were dealing direct with you through Paypal or not.)

Thanks

Thanks for the reply Corey.  My needs have now changed and I'm no longer in need of the 2 USCs.

Should be pretty well covered in the manuals and videos stickied in the Micro Family Hardware section.

Afterburner would it work on F16V3 board? or have to do with Uamp route?

Afterburner was developed for the F16 / F8 V1's.  I 'think' the V2 and V3 use the same driver chips (possibly someone can confirm), so the afterburner should work as a replacement in those boards, too.  However, there may be issues with the Afterburner board overhanging some of the connectors or other components.  So basically, I can not confirm they work / no testing has been performed, so it would be an 'experimental' case at best.

New to the uAmp, uSC and Afterburner tech.  I now understand what the uAmp can be used for, what about the uSC and Afterburner?

Not sure but David Pitts is coming out with a Falcon Amp (F-Amp). He expects it to be ready in a month.

Corey, When will you be posting the Co-op for the uAmps?  I need at least 30.

I wouldn’t count on that happening.

Ah.  Thanks, I didn't know about these units.  There isn't much of a description in the sales page.  Do you know if these have indicator LEDs?  They are very useful.

Are these the only versions that exist (or are for sale) anymore?  And these are already wired (meaning, you can't solder to the actual PCB)?

No LED lights. What would you want it to indicate?

Not sure why you would want to solder to the PCB, but it would be very difficult with the F-Amp. These are well-made and make it very easy to attach to the end of the pixel string and a pigtail.

Just like the uAmp, it would be nice if the F-Amp would have a status LED for power and one for data.  They can be quite useful when troubleshooting a problem.

There can be any number of reasons.  I don't know why the other poster wants this, but in my case, I produce a motherboard for the uAmp which has a socket to fit the uAmp.  I would like to do the same for the F-Amp, soldering some short pins to the little board so it can plug in to my board, rather than solder to it.

I have a message in  to the manufacturer.  David says he can provide them without the case and leads.  I will let you know his answer.

Not difficult at all.  I've soldered the two prior versions (uAmp last year and whatever version existed the year before).  Like another poster mentioned, I have situations where I've already integrated this small PCB into my plans--so I'd have to rework things to accommodate this new package.

You always post a wanted to buy ad.  I'm sure there are a number of them out there that would be available.  I have several I bought "just in case" but have never needed them and now that the F-amp is a stock item there is less need to keep them in reserve.
