As advertised: it gets the job done. No extra features. The parts required to get started are included. Labels on the board make it easy to place the conntecors the right way. Order and delivery also went through without problems. Well worth its price.
The adapter board is high quality and fits the IMST 880a perfect. All the needed pinheaders are included. The only thing that could be added would be a pin header for the serial console (2(+), 6(-),8(tx), 10(rx)) of the pi. I did this for me with just 4 wires eding in a Dupont case fixed with superglue on the board. Works for me.
My version is rev 1.2 and the raspberry label is on the side of the connector where I need to solder the bit 13x2 connector in the kit while in the photos the raspberry label is on opposite side. This is the second backplane kit I buy, I threw away the first one because I looked at the photos and soldered the raspberry connector on the wrong side.
Having an issue with installing the software for TTN-gateway but it turned out is was not related to the backplane. Nevertheless Gonzalo gave me great support to solve the problem. Besides he sold me a perfect backplane :-)
This item was made to save time connecting the iC880a to a raspberry pi and it does that perfectly without any hassle or issues. There's very good documentation and a couple of videos out there on exactly how to use this, it seems to be the preferred option for many people and it's also for me.
Hi Vinodkar, I am sorry you for your inconveniences but I think you might have missed an email or something because the tracking number is attached to your order in tindie and I see that right now, it is being processed in your country already (last status update was on Monday): http://take.ms/6xEs2
Regarding the customer care number, I'm not a company, tindie is for makers making things, but if you shot me an email, I can help you out sorting issues for sure.
I hope your package reaches you in the coming days and you can have a working gateway soon! Do write me per email if you face any difficulties.
It's perfect. I expected it to be assembled, so first I had to do some soldering. It's easy and straight forward tough. There is no Documentation, it's rather self-explanatory tough. Very quick delivery, thank you!
Absolutely professional PCB finish, easy to assemble if you know what end of the soldering iron is hot ;-)
Perfect fit for the IMST board and the raspberry.
If you deploy this, get an additional 1cm board spacer with screw/nut to keep the backplane from short-circuiting on the raspberry 2/3 micro USB port. The holes you need are already there and perfectly aligned. Alternatively use a adhesive rubber spacer like used for PCB mounting.
