Two weeks ago, I met my friend at Raspberry Jam SG #9 event and he introduced me about the Nuvoton competition organized in Singapore. While taking cab back together, we have had a very interesting conversation about our daily life and hobby. Then he mentioned about the Nuvoton competition where they give some NUC140 NuTiny boards for free, first for introducing new product and then, people can use that board for the competition prototype. The day after, I got the board from him to play with it.
I used to order some free samples from TI (Texas Instruments) long time ago when I was in Vietnam for my class projects. Since the import regulation in Vietnam is quite strict and the electronics market is not so potential so that only few companies provide free samples and free shipping over there. I have tried to get free samples from some big, famous companies but only TI gave me free samples that time. Now, when staying in Singapore, I have tried again to get some samples from other companies for my current project and I chose Freescale. As my project needs some sort of capacitive touch buttons so I have looked on the internet and found some quite popular and famous chips from Freescale including: MPR121 and MPR031.
I have recently received my Fatshark Predator V2 FPV kit so I decided to put some detail images of the goggle here for your reference if you want to buy it.
Yesterday, I had a chance to join in the “National junior solar sprint” organized by Singapore Polytechnic for secondary students in Singapore. The theme of the competition is “Sun seeker”, which is actually a small solar car race. The competition was held with purpose to create a playground for students to apply their knowledge and creation into a real thing.
For the last few days, I have recently received some stuffs I ordered from Ebay and Hobbyking so I decided to write this post to tell my own story, opinion on different shopping habits.
