rich, try giving it 3v and pressing the sleep button.
mine seems to work except the battery circuit, and it’s a little iritating that it dosn’t come with a programer. they suggested buying a “uart” programer, but a level converter and one of my antiques works fine, inconvenient tho. a pin header on this thing is bad.
temp is probly 350f+. i centered some of the parts on mine and tined some of the pads the copper was already turning dark. just hope the bare link connections dont grow some green bits.
i’m curious lets see some pics.
