part change on dongle
« on: July 09, 2010, »
I changed out the out of production 100uf capacitor with a 22uf on the parts bom list at mouser. I tested and this works well just put it in place of the 100.

If you ave the 100uf do not worry it is fine use it.

Rick if you can update you wiki stuff to match I will tiple your pay as always!!!  ;D

If you insist, but you are worth every penny even with the raise!

if I'm looking at the right Wiki, it still shows the 100uf cap and it's an older version 2 board.  I just put my Lynx dongle together and had the 22uf cap question myself.

I was going to order the goodies for the DMX Dongle (speedily on its way from the store) from Mouser, but one of the parts listed is apparently discontinued.  Is there a replacement part I can order?

 Desc.:  Buffers & Line Drivers Hi-Spd Lo Pwr Trans

There are over 3000 pieces available.  You can still buy them right now.  I am probably gonna buy some for stock.
