  1. wired/wireless Grove-controlled 220V outlets

    A simple, wired outlet is something I find myself making all the time (left side of photo), but I'd rather buy something smaller/safer/nicer than keep making them :)

    The [more expensive] wireless product can have the same functionality of a "normal" rf (or ir) controlled outlet, but the remote control would also have a grove socket. If it's necessary to have 2 buttons/pins in order to control such a device (like the a/b buttons in the photo), you can use both yellow and white lines (unorthodox for non-I2C grove modules, but I don't see any reason why not).

    • Max485

      I wish to have in your OPL list the posibility to use the well common MAX485. When I develop boards with Modbus communication feature, I always need to use this components.
      Thanks

            • Website Naviagtion

              I really like the products that you have on your site. I like it that Radio Shack also carries them. I found your site hard to navigate and find what i am looking for easily or even just to browse like an online store. On the other hand your competitors like SparkFun Pololu are really easy to navigate. I often find my self just browsing things on there store for hours. With this site i just don't feel like it give the feel to stay and "shop". I come in like i do when I go to radio shack retail…

              • Adds some opto-isolators to the OPL

                There aren't currently any opto-isolators in the OPL? This seems like a big gap in it's functionality. Something like the 4N35 or the TLP291-4

                • make larger flex circuits! PCB's go up to 30cm, flex circuits should too :)

                  seeed flex circuits are very reasonably priced, however they don't go large enough to make a real wire harness replacement in any decent size project. Would love to see the flex circuits get the same size options as the rigid PCB's :)

                    • Add 4x20 Grove LCD

                      The 2x16 Grove LCD is terrific, especially with the backlight color changes. Bring out a 4x20 version.

                      By the way, what are the hidden I2C addresses on this device? They should be documented so multiple devices can be used.

                      • Better inventory management needed

                        Most products that I would to order are out of stock! :( Water pump, relay, flow sensor, etc. There should be an option for back-order or notification to customer when the product is back in stock.

                                  • Get rid of Fusion PCB service

                                    My experience with your fusion service has been appaling to say the least. I have ordered PCB fabrication and assembly from all over the world. Here in USA, where I am located, I get constant updates and can communicate with the PCB vendor. Just for your information, I have ordered from, Ireland, Romania , Canada to name a few. All of these places provide some communication on the process.

                                    In Seeds case, not only was I unable to communicate with the PCB fab, but they issues a "shipped" notice and refused to answer my repeated emails on why I could…

                                      • I'm having communication problems

                                        Very hard to do business with you. I'm having communication problems. I can not find contacts for communication. I do not have time. I can not spend time with you. I am in a hurry.

                                        I canceled my order and cancel the payment.

                                        • Allow repeat order without the need to upload the gerber files again

                                          If you repeat an order it should not be necessary to upload the Gerber files again. Most other PCB manufacturers do this.
