AdaFruit AD8495 breakout now available

AdaFruit now has an AD8495 breakout board now. Theirs is slightly nicer than mine, in that it has a 1.25 volt bias, meaning it can handle negative temperatures as well as positive (-250 to +750 °C for a 5 volt power supply).

It's a little bittersweet. My design wasn't novel, particularly - I took it straight from the datasheet. And they've certainly added value by adding the negative temperature range. It's also great to see a product that one championed make it into the marketplace in a (somewhat) big way, even if it's being done by someone more well heeled. But now I've got a pile of them, and nobody's going to find me once Google figures it out. C'est la vie.
