Update! The boards are now available for purchase on tINDIE! You can check them out here: AS3935 Lightning Sensor Dev Board
We’ve also created a wiki page for documentation which includes sample code. That page is available here: on our wiki
They’re heeeere! The Lightning boards have landed, i’ve built up a few and everything looks to be testing out okay. I’ve also tested them with the lightning emulator board and they seem to be detecting strikes as expected.
Additionally parts were ordered and delivered to populate the boards, and the solder paste stencil is on order and expected to arrive by the 25’th (though I have a suspicion it will be here much earlier).
For those that reserved a lightning board, Thank you! You helped make this initial run of boards a reality. I’ll be sending out invoices to the email addresses you provided for the quantity reserved. If you’d like the quantity changed, let me know. As an extra thank you for early registrations, I won’t be charging shipping. If you require a ship method faster than the standard USPS First Class, let me know and I can revise the invoice for the difference. International customers will have their boards shipped via USPS First Class International.
Thank you again – I’m looking forward to hearing what everyone does with these neat boards!
