Payment due 5/1

Check out This thread for more info on FSRs, circuits, etc, etc.

Okay, I've been promising that I'd do a group buy for some time regarding some FSR402s from digikey. Here's what we're talking about: FSR402s

As you can see, the 100 unit price break is significant. We'd be looking at $4.07 per unit at 100. If we hit 250 it gets cheaper still.

Here's what you need to know about this group buy:

- It's only on if we reach 100 units.

- There's a five unit minimum order

-State how many FSR402s you'd like in this thread and I'll send you my paypal address within a few days. I'd like to get an idea that we'll hit 100 before I start actaully taking money.

-Once the group buy is closed, then I'll order the parts.

- Shipping rates have gone up and international shipping is still quite difficult to correctly guess. Therefore shipping/handling will be $7.50 per order (with delivery confirmation) in the USA, $10 in Canada, and $15 elsewhere. When I ship the international packages, if I find out that shipping was cheaper, I will gladly refund the difference.

- You can paypal me as a personal payment or you can find out what the paypal charge is and include it in your order price. Either way, I'd like you to pay the paypal fees please.

-This group buy will stay open for four weeks.

- This group order is a big thanks to Xpander, decaying.since, etc, etc I actually don't really need any FSRs right now but I said that I'd do this order and I believe it's a good way to give back to the community

Fine print:

By participating in this group buy you agree that:

- You are responsible for any customs charges that may occur upon entering your country of residence.

- You are ordering electronic parts, if you kill yourself using it, fry the part, don't understand how to use it you are responsible, not me. I'll test a quantity of the parts we receive but I am unable to test every FSR that we order to verify it's within specs.

- I will order these parts on good faith. You agree that you trust me to send them out to you. If you receive an empty box or never receive it at all, that's an issue between you and your post office. I'll try to help in any way I can but I am not responsible for lost or damaged items.

I can share mine, it's basically a DC mixer with range and offset controls.
Really wanted to try the current source setup from the FSR manual, as it seems that gets you a more linear range, but didn't get around to it, and used the simple voltage divider setup.
Did anyone try feeding the FSRs constant current instead of constant voltage?

Andrew was kind enough to offer this http://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1073050#1073050

I don't think anyone has arranged the order yet, though.

I have had very good results doing that, on this thread is a circuit that can be switched between both modes:
