CU has successfully delivered their High Altitude Student Platform
The CU payload
consists of a group of CCD cameras to collect images of celestial bodies and light intensities during the 122,500ft assent into the stratosphere
. Best of luck to the CU students working on the project! We hope to hear more about the launch scheduled for later this week.
Be sure to checkout the live camera
from within the hanger, GPS tracking
, and the controllable camera
on the hanger!
Olimex is releasing some new, very complex development boards. This board based on the LPC2478
has the power to run Linux!
If you don't need the display, this development board
for the LPC2468 is equally as powerful!
Speaking of powerful ARM boards, this is a LPC2378 based board
with TFT color LCD and touch screen.
The powerful GSM development board
is now available in a PIC flavor. Control almost anything wherever there is cellular reception!
Another nicely packaged LCD, this is a PIC development board
with monochrome LCD and 5-way joystick.
from Atmel is a low-cost and handy USB IC. It's like the ATmega16, with a USB bootloader!
Olimex also has a new RFID reader
. This USB-enabled device shows up as HID or CDC and reads standard 125kHz RFIDs.
This is a handy SAM7 based board that incorporates our favorite nRF24L01 2.4GHz radio. Use this as a powerful ARM based, USB wireless widget
That is a huge hunk of epoxy, around four LED dies. These 10mm LEDs
use 4 LEDs in one package to get really bright lighting effects! Available in Red
, and Blue
And some photo updates. This is a nifty, low power PIC 18F8490 dev board
The classic terminal board
with the LPC2138 has a new pic.
from 4DSystems have a new look as well. Lots of new features jammed into these impressive displays.
