    When will the boards be available for sale?

    I am very interested in the MiniPiio = MiniPi I/O for some experiments at the moment.

    Ditto! Gotta have them!

    Ah! Still no MiniPi I/O (x16 I/Os) PCBs or PCB files available to allow others to build on your experience and gain RPi experience without having to start from scratch – soo unhappy.

    Don’t really need something as big as a GertBoard – your x16 I/O board would have been just the ticket for a manageable starting point, but initially too much work involved in having to build it from scratch in a PCB program I’ve never used before i.e. Designspark?

    Are you ‘possibly’ ever going to release the PCB design file so others can create/order the board? I hope you will, but fully understand if you don’t want to. It would just be a shame as many good things are being done with RPi’s at the moment but many are wasting time retracing the same old ground others have already tested and got working.

    May well just have to bite the bullet and get designing from scratch – would rather work from a starting point though – yes there’s the schematic but even a semi blank PCB design file would be such a head start i.e. the size of the Mini I/O board including correct GIO header position – maybe that wouldn’t be such an intel-prop give-away and won’t endanger any of your future plans i.e. commercials if you did decide to finally sell the boards yourself.

    I know in the world of RPi it’s such early days, but sometimes, some people in this RPi space have really good ‘simple’ designs but for whatever reason either loose interest in persuing them or move on to other much bigger designs (i.e. GertBoards) and leave their own behind but forget the benefit a simpler design could have in the learning curve of others i.e. in all the aspects of design, build, manufacturibg prcoess, programming and testing.

    Here’s hoping for some crumbs to be feed the RPi flock?

      Hi Phil, have a look at PartCo of Finland they are now stocking some of the MiniPiio boards.

    Will the MiniPiio Relay2 Board v0.10 be available in the Partco Finland too?
    Or could I get a hold of those somewhere else?

    Is there a (minipiio) distributor in the Netherlands(NL)? If not, can you recommend one that sends them to Holland?

    Where can I find more (programming) information for minipiio (driver) usage?

    Thanks in advance!

    Dear Sirs,
    I’m interested in buying a couple of MiniPiio_rs232 pcb for RB Pi, mounted or to mount, better anyhow in kit with the components. Is it possible? how? what the costs?

    Hi Marco, We don’t have a Netherlands distributor but you could try
    Elektronik Lavpris Aps of Denmark

    Thank you, I’ve send them an email message!

    Hi, are the minipiio midi boards avaialble with your distributors? I cannot seem to find them on their website unfortunately,

    Hi there,

    Do you or could you (or is it possible to) make a 12 (or 16) channel version of this:

      Hi Steve
      Yes it should be possible to make a 16-channel version of the MiniPIIO ULN2803 board.
      Its the output connections that would take up most of the space, so what sort of connectors were you thinking of for the outputs?

    Is there a way to connect 4 thermalcouples (K)
    to a pi 2?

      Yes, we a two channel Thermocouple board. If you use two of these and a Expander2 board it’ll give you 4-channels
