Web Platform scratch and dent on its way to recovery

Posted on Thursday, January 3rd, 2013 in web platforms by DP


Tom redeemed one of his 7400 competition coupons for a Web Platform from the scratch and dent category of our free PCB drawer. He was able to ping it successfully and get it recognized over USB, so it looks like the major IC’s are functioning as intended.

Dangerous Prototypes recently organized a give away of some of their products and I was lucky enough to win a free board. The Scratch and Dent contains prototypes that have failed quality control in some respect and there is no guarantee that they will work.
