November Product Showcase
We have some great new products in the store which you may have seen popping up recently. Here's the lowdown of what's been added, with links to their page for more information.
Energy Harvester - LTC3588 Breakout
This breakout board uses the LTC3588 Piezoelectric Energy Harvester from Linear Technologies. This board can be used not only for harvesting piezoelectric energy, but solar energy as well.
TLC 5940 - PWM Driver
The TLC5940 is a 16 channel PWM unit with 12 bit duty cycle control (0 - 4095), 6 bit current limit control (0 - 63), and a daisy chainable serial interface. It is handy for expanding the number of PWM outputs available.
Breakout Board for USB miniB
This new version now has all 5 pins broken out on the connector. We have no idea what USB device you are hooking up to, but if you need to add a miniUSB/USB miniB connector to your breadboard - here it is. Also good for an un-regulated, non-limited 5V supply up to 100mA
Arduino Pro 328-5V/16MHz
SparkFun's minimal design approach to Arduino. This is a 5V Arduino running the 16MHz bootloader (select 'Arduino Duemilanove w/ 328' within the Arduino software)
DSO Nano - Pocket-Sized Digital Oscilloscope
The DSO Nano is a compact digital oscilloscope based on an ARM Cortex™-M3 compatible 32 bit platform. The DSO is equipped with a 320x240 color display, microSD card capability, USB connection, and rechargeable LiPo battery
MegaShield Kit for Arduino
The Arduino Mega now has its very own prototyping shield! The MegaShield mates with the Arduino Mega board and gives the user a prototyping area, two general LEDs, and, most important of all, the Arduino Mega reset switch is brought to the top level. The shield also works with our small breadboards if you don't want to solder to the prototyping area
USB to RS232 converter
This is an easy to use USB to RS232 converter. Device uses the Prolific IC PL-2303 and supports baud rates up to 1Mbps. Driver support for Windows, Mac, and Linux RedHat
The Bus Pirate, created by Ian Lesnet and featured on Hack a Day, is a troubleshooting tool that communicates between a PC and any embedded device over most standard serial protocols, which include I2C, SPI, and asynchronous serial - all at voltages from 0-5.5VDC. This product eliminates a ton of early prototyping effort when working with new or unknown chips
Polymer Lithium Ion Battery 6Ah
If you need some juice, this 6Ahr triple pack is for you. These are very slim, extremely light weight batteries based on the new Polymer Lithium Ion chemistry. This is the highest energy density currently in production. Each cells outputs a nominal 3.7V at 2000mAh! This solid 3 cell pack (6Ahr) comes terminated with a standard 2-pin JST connector - 2mm spacing between pins. Do not attempt to charge these with anything but a charger specifically designed for Lithium Ion batteries.
Breadboard Power Supply USB - 5V/3.3V
A very simple breadboard power supply kit that takes power from any USB port and outputs a fuse protected and regulated 3.3V. The .1" headers are mounted on the bottom of the PCB for simple insertion into a breadboard. Pins labeled 5V/GND 3.3V/GND plug directly into the power lines
ATX Connector Breakout Board
This is a breakout board for our right-angle, 24-pin ATX connector. Pair this board with the ATX connector and a standard PC power supply and you'll have 3.3V, 5V, and ±12VDC to supply to your project. Make sure you ground the PS_ON pin to enable all of the outputs
ProtoShield for Arduino Pro Mini
This is a small prototyping shield for the Arduino Pro Mini. If your project requires just a little bit more space for your external circuitry, this might be a perfect addition. 38 unconnected PTHs are provided for your prototyping needs.
