A litte comment about the new TFmini-S

So, the form factor is the same like the previous versions… but with new form factor about the use of the electronics, must be reinforced a little bit the JST-GH connector on the board.
Done some test using UART…i2C and CAN BUS.
This new version powered on the UART is stable…and fast during the reading of the measurement., i dont advice for now use it on the i2c due slow reading and coz the power.
For now the module cannot be use on CAN BUS port or node due the firmware. limitations.
The frame rate around 100hz is good knowing that some lidar or rangefinder are a little bit limited on this.

After few trials the TF mini-S can work on a can node
If people have this module and a Can Node with a little bit of DIY soldering and few settings can make it work properly.
