New Product Friday: Hot New Products

We've got a new batch of hot products this right right in time for the holidays.

First order of business, we don't have a video this week. During the holiday season, we've had a lot of people out and we want to do something special for the next video. We also have a surprise post next week, so this will be your last New Product Post for the next couple of weeks. But be sure to check back next Friday, we've got a little something special for you.

Alright, show of hands - who fell for it? Yeah, to reiterate, no video this week, sorry!

For all you Raspberry Pi owners out there, we've got a great little LCD for you. This is a 7" LCD with HDMI input. It's great for the Pi, or anything else that has an HDMI output. It can also accept other video inputs via the included cables. It comes with a versatile mount and even a remote control! And for the videographers out there, it has a threaded mount on the bottom which works well for cold-shoe mounting as well. We now use these in the Product Post Videos so I can see what I'm doing while we record.

We've got a new revision of the Geiger Counter this week. This one incorporates a lot of the feedback we've received from the comments. We've completely overhauled the power supply (it's much more stable) and we've changed the way we read the tube. We're now reading the rising edge which makes it more accurate and easier to use. Thanks for the feedback and we hope you like the new revision.

At first glance the XMEGA Xprotolab might look like a small development board. But, it's actually a mixed signal oscilloscope, logic analyzer, and waveform generator. And it fits into a breadboard! You can always reload your own firmware and use it for a development board, since it has a few handy buttons as well as an OLED display on the front. If you need an embedded scope or analyzer, check this one out. Or, just use it as a a tiny embedded control module.

Need an embeddable Linux computer with a ton of IO pins? Why not check out the BeagleBone? With an ARM Cortex-A8 running at 720MHz, 66 GPIOs, and more, what's not to like?

alt text

Speaking of customer feedback, we've revised the XBee Explorer Regulated to replace the old diode level shifter with a proper and more robust MOSFET level shifter. Now you should have a lot less communication issues with your XBees.

alt text

Need a cable for USB OTG? We now carry a 4" USB OTG cable which has a female A on one side and a Micro A on the other. Use this cable if you have a USB-OTG device, so you can use it as a host!

alt text

Need a simple surface-mount resettable fuse? Check out our strip of 10 PTC resettable fuses. they act like a fuse, but reset. Give them too much juice, and they heat up and increase their resistance. Once they cool back down, they operate like normal. They're pretty cool and a nice feature to add to your boards.

We've got a new version of the crystal kit which doesn't have the 13MHz SMD crystal. It was an odd addition and quite frankly, we were just using up some old ones we had. Other than that, it's the same kit which has most of the common values you'd come across and need.

alt text

And lastly, we've got some Xilinx Spartan-3E chips leftover from our Spartan breakout. We're no longer building the board, so get some of the leftovers for cheap.

Well, that's all I've got for this week. We won't be back for another couple of weeks, but we'll still have new products, so check the new product feed for new stuff. See you again in a couple of weeks. Thanks for reading.

    CHALLENGE: How far into the 10 hours can you last before shoving a soldering iron in your ear?

    Joke's on you! Now I have a FREE soundtrack for the rest of my day!

  • Wayne / about 11 years ago / 4

    Any news, or updates on AVC 2013?

  • How will I survive not seeing Robert until NEXT FRIDAY!?!?!?! I might go crazy this finals week.

  • I really thought my computer was being stupid!! I FELL FOR IT!

    It took me half a second to figure out why the video didn't say click to enable.

  • StrixA / about 11 years ago / 2

    It may just be by chance but I've only seen and used mini A to OTG A and not micro.

  • RFsynthesizer / about 11 years ago / 2

    Check out this video...

  • sgrace / about 11 years ago / 2

    Robert... It didn't fool me. Mainly because the embedded Youtube video is completely different than the GIF you put up.

    • VirtualBoxer / about 11 years ago * / 1

      I agree. Try Processing and use it to export to JavaScript, not Java. If you use Java, it may be more obviously fake.

  • TECH GEEK / about 11 years ago / 2

    And this is why SFE is awsome

    • Yup. What other companies would embed an "epic sax guy" video ON THEIR FRONT PAGE?

      • VirtualBoxer / about 11 years ago / 1

        Well, a company for consumers would more likely pull this kind of prank.

  • jayachar88 / about 11 years ago / 1

    Was really hoping to see the IOIO-OTG on this list, so disappointed. Any ETA on that ? Those shouldn't be too hard to manufacture or source parts for.

    • Patience my friend. It will be here very soon. The power section was completely redesigned with a new switching reg and power control circuit, so it took a couple of tries to get it right.

  • Jon Mayer / about 11 years ago / 1

    Too bad I read before clicking, I still fell for the click though. I had to see what was going on.

  • VirtualBoxer / about 11 years ago / 1

    Why won't it play in the window? Is the window fake?

    • VirtualBoxer / about 11 years ago / 1

      It is fake. In fact, it's just an animated image.

  • Are you guys holding off doing videos because you're scared of the rapture?? Don't worry, we are too!! ;-P

  • Yvan256 / about 11 years ago / 1

    YouTube has totally broken HTML5 support for the last week or so.

    About the Lilliput display, any chance of getting 8" displays in 4:3 aspect ratio?

  • pyrofx / about 11 years ago / 1

    That's what I get for placing an order on Thursday! That's a sweet little oscilloscope.
