wpwrakinteresting ... now they make silicon capacitors. haven't noticed these as components yet. the critters are ridiculously flat, e.g., a 100 nF 0402 is just 0.1 mm10:10
nicksydneywpwrak: where did you see that ?11:14
nicksydneylink ?11:14
whitequarknicksydney: google "silicon capacitors"11:14
whitequarkfirst link11:14
nicksydneyThin capacitors (down to 100 ┬Ám)11:16
nicksydneycan be embedded inside the PCB i suppose 11:16

nicksydney1206 package damn ! that's tenny weeny small !11:17

whitequark1206 is enormous11:18
whitequark0402 is small.11:18

whitequarkstar wars, meh. I wait for the time they'll compare it with The Chronicles of Amber11:25

nicksydneywpwrak: http://www.cnx-software.com/2014/05/10/kairos-high-end-mechanical-smart-watch-features-a-transparent-oled-display/ never heard about transparent OLED...you ?11:26
nicksydneywhitequark: small step for mankind :)11:26
whitequarkI think OLEDs are naturally transparent, they just have a reflective background to get *all* light off the proper surface11:27
nicksydneyanybody getting this board http://www.inforcelive.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=75_77 for $75 price ? quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon11:27
whitequarkI mean, an OLED is a thinnest layer of organic deposited on glass. *of course* it's transparent11:27
nicksydneyanyone has use this http://www.aeros-os.org/ ?13:33
whitequarkseems like a crutch for one particular silly board13:34
nicksydneythey even has their own inidiegogo campaign https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/indiego-transform-any-amiga-mac-pc-and-raspberry-pi-into-a-gaming-system 13:38
