Xiao IO expander COMING

HI there Citric, I hope you are fine.
I have already ordered 2 pieces of the IO Expander, :stuck_out_tongue: it looks awesome.

I have located 6 Pin , 8Pin and 22Pin Halves HOWEVER No, 7 Pin version WTH? :sweat_smile: ,LOL
I’m Glad to see seeed Engineers making such test fixtures and using 3D printer. :nerd_face: :+1:
As you already know I have several seeed (Xiao) 3D items posted with links here (case,socket,reset button) and Thingiverse. :gift:
Will the STL file for this necessary piece be made available? :thinking: Why not if No? :smirk:

And While you’re always providing excellent support, can you ask them if there is any plans to update the XIAO line?
Up coming Hardware & Softdevice improvements? Should we base new products on this Technology(sell me) I feel like :hole:__ :man_with_probing_cane: with portions of Seeed Studio.

Thank you

HI there,
Took 3 tries, :stuck_out_tongue:

doing more digging I Also found the ClipZin provided the STP file for freecad HERE
I stretched theirs to get close.
Seeed Prides itself on fast to prototype and Maker friendly, I say prove it and requiring the user to solder just to test or try the Xiao product in a quick proof of concept is counter productive. Offering this type of socket is better for the user experience, besides cost cutting at seeed Lately the PINs required are NO longer included in the package from some warehouses, Hmmm? :face_with_peeking_eye:
I can post the STL for this modded version on thingiverse under Edge connector Xiao

I can understand that there will be users who will need such a board, and we would like to be able to sell it on our shelves. However, the supplier of this material has not been able to give a purchase price that is acceptable to everyone, and we are currently stuck here …
This connector is not open source, so there is no STL file.

No Soldering… :stuck_out_tongue: I made this work, but I want MORE!! :star_struck:

Hi there, can you tell me when these will be back ? I want 10 of them.

Acrylic Case for Seeed Studio XIAO Expansion board
SKU 110010024

Out of stock forever?
GL :slight_smile: PJ

Are those pins holding the XIAO removed from the resistor? :rofl:

I checked this product and it is a stock-on-order product. It needs to have at least 100pcs before the factory will initiate production. Right now there are only 3… Plus yours is one, only 13. That’s a long way from starting production.

Hi There :slight_smile:
Wow, that’s allot. OK well how about releasing the drawing or PDF on the WIKI that would allow makers to make there own too. I was thinking of different color bases print with the 3d printer I have., and Yes those are the cut ends of the resistors Bent to make the contact pin for the socket. I’m sure you can appreciate to use what you got. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :ok_hand:
GL :slight_smile: PJ

:cowboy_hat_face: :v:

Got 'em… ANY Schematic PDF available ,? NONE on the WIKI btw
:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :ok_hand:

Very cool.

Thank You Citric,
I salute you :man_bowing:
I was encouraged by the expander…to make batt connection for socket.

Make this expander with spring load bottom pins like on xiao expansion board and make sure it has a clip that goes over the top to hold down pressure

most people dont know what they are missing with the expansion board and no acrylic case.
fyi put a piece of foam under the acrylic case and over the 8 pins on the right side. These pins stick up high enough that they can short out against wires or metal on the work bench… dont ask me how i know

go ahead and get them the price is going up all the time, im sure you can get a run to work

is the IO Expander Sold Out

how about this product to be modified?

I would love to buy some of these, but the link no longer works?

Hi there,
They do Work, I think they were going to Revise it, so it may be worth the wait if they improve on it. But it does work. :wink: :+1: also there are others albeit LARGER :face_with_peeking_eye: for sale
GL :slight_smile: PJ

Ah, I see, interesting they revise so soon after release! Looks like you can’t buy them anymore (or at least that I can find). What else is for sale?
Thanks, Sam

Hi there,
Yea, just google “port expander arduino”
You get MORE than enough choices…
