    Detrick, the answer to You question is: yes. This is a standard procedure and, as far as I know, You should still expect more such calls coming from that

      Subject: [softrock40] Si570 Sample and follow-up phone call received

       

      I filled out SiLabs' form to get a sample Si570 a few weeks ago. It
      arrived today. I had only asked for a single piece, figuring that if
      I can get a single unit to work and make me happy, they really do
      deserve my money for any other quantity I'd want. They probably
      deserve my money anyway, given the all that I've read about them on
      this list. They sent me 2 chips anyway. What a nice way to start off
      the weekend!

      About an hour after the UPS guy dropped the box off, my phone rings.
      It's Lori (spelling?), the local SiLabs inside sales rep. Said she
      was asked to follow up with me on the order. Okay, so she's a sales
      person and wants to sell more stuff.. I get that... I try to avoid
      sales people every day at work. I figured I'd be nice, though, since
      these folks have seemed so nice to the HAM community so far. I told
      her I was a HAM, as well as the basic intentions behind wanting one of
      these (find out [first hand] just how much of a silver bullet these
      things might be). She asked if I wanted/needed any other information
      about them, which I currently said no to (I hadn't even opened the box
      to look at them!!), but took her contact details anyway. Now, she's
      probably not as good of a resource as the SiLabs engineering folks
      others on the list here have been in touch with, but if anyone thinks
      it might be useful to have another contact at SiLabs, I'd be more than
      happy to pass her details along. Also, if there are any questions
      that might be appropriate for a sales person, I can try to field them
      with her.

      Anyone else get follow-up calls from a samples order?
