Question for the day - if you could buy a SparkFun widget off the shelf from your local (hobby) shop, what widget would you want available? We'd like to get a rough idea of products that people would want made more readily available. Please hit us with some feedback (on the right) or a comment or two (below).
New GPS receiver in stock. The MN5010
is 10x10mm with built in voltage regulation, LNA, RTC, and a SiRF III super-sensitive chip set under the hood. Nice.
Here's a device that is hard to locate - a rechargeable coin cell battery
! This 3.7V 200mA coin cell is a bit larger than normal (24.5mm diameter and a tall 5.2mm) but they can cut down on the cost and increase the portability of your project.
Speaking of coin cells - we found this battery holder
has nice holes on it's SMD pads making it a perfect candidate for sewable power. Use this coin cell holder to power your next LilyPad
