The imp002 solder down module is now available for developers.
The cool thing is that this module is much more hackable than the imp001 card and offers 12 GPIOs instead of 6.
Originally was only for manufacturers and only for bulk orders but Hugo agreed to add some special function for developers and to allow us to offer the single piece.
Because this is a SMD solder down module, a breakout is mandatory so we’ve designed a simple breakout board that we give free with every module. We have also published a library and a sample design for Eagle:
The only “bad” news about this module is related to the availability, as the lead time from Electric Imp is at least 8-10 weeks and the quantities we can get are limited. We have ordered more, back in April, but we got assigned only 400 pieces that are expected by the second week of June. After these first 400 modules, we don’t expect to receive more parts before the end of September or even later
The price for the imp002 solder down module we set at US$24 but we offer discounts starting from just 2 pieces and as we know the only other supplier that is going to have in stock next month this product is Digikey, that have a price a bit higher and doesn’t offer the breakout PCB.
Please remember that we ship Worldwide and we fulfill the orders from any of our local warehouses in USA (Orlando, FL), Europe (Italy) and Asia (Shenzhen/Hong Kong).
The imp002 is available on our website:
For who ordered the Hannah (still available) or our Break&Shield board, we have already sent an e-mail with a promotional code to get free shipment for the imp002.
P.S. a great deal!: now we offer the imp001 card for developers at very discounted price, starting from $23! We also have the imp001 available on Amazon Prime, so you can get free shipment with your Amazon orders if you get it there
