The PCBs for the "PCB Only" Backers are here! We hope to have them all in the mail by Wednesday.
ugh. I made a BOM on digikey, but digikey sucks and can't share it publicly. Here's a link you can try: https://ordering.digikey.com/RegisteredUser/BOMBillOfMaterials.aspx…
but it probably won't work.
a couple things to note:
I used a different oscillator. The one recommended wasn't available in one off quantities.
I only have one thermopile array. if you want a second one, make sure to add it.
Also, the bluetooth module will need to be ordered separately.
The total for the digikey order (less shipping) is $95. The bluetooth module (less shipping) is $32. Total $127, so not that much cheaper than the build it yourself kit. (note this is in single kit quantities; I'm sure this stuff is a bit cheaper in quantity [the thermopile array definitely is])
Any chance I can change my pledge? (I know it'll delay shipment) ;)
bluetooth module $32 : http://www.blueradios.com/orderinfo_new.htm
digikey has the thermopile array for $86, futureelectronics (which is down for me ATM) has it for $68.
I will post a doc with links to everything when I get a chance.
Andrew, sorry I meant to mention that. The BOMs are posted to github. http://github.com/RHWorkshop/IR-Blue-Eagle-Files Firmware update over Bluetooth isn't currently supported but is something we will look into.
Any word on getting the BOM up so we can order parts?z
Also, I saw these run pics, is the firmware gonna be upgradeable over bluetooth?
