2011 Winter Electronics Purchase

I just put in, what has been becoming an annual occurrence,  a winter electronics binge. This years order from Sparkfun:

1 – DSO Nano V2 – Pocket-Sized Digital Oscilloscope
1 – Getting Started with Arduino
1 – Break Away Headers – Straight
1  – Break Away Female Headers
1 – Breakout Board for AD5330 Parallel 8-Bit DAC
1 – Breakout Board for MCP4725 I2C DAC
1  – Solder – 1/4lb Spool (0.032″) Special Blend
1 – Soldering Station Variable Temperature 70W – Digital
1 – Third Hand
1 – Barrel Jack Adapter – USB to 5.5mm
1  – Tweezers – Heavy Duty

Two big items in there the DSO Nano and an actual solder station, that is going to be nice, no more laying the old Radio shack iron on the ground. I have been building some electronics I have another WSG in the works and a pretty big project with my friend Matt of Citizen Analog, more on that as it comes to light.

I found 2009’s order, looking back I should have ordered another 2 or 3 micro usb cords, I haven’t had the best of  luck with them keeping them around so far, but I seem to have at least 10 mini usb cords now.
