A new all-in-one meter with a catchy name, another book written by SparkFun and a well-deserved revision.
Hello, everyone! Thank you for joining us today on this fine Friday. We have a couple of new products to talk about today, including the Watt's Up Meter, the new SparkFun Arduino Inventor's Guide and a revision to the MyoWare Cable Shield. It's a slightly lighter week than the last couple of posts, but there's still plenty of good stuff. Let's jump in!
The Watt's Up Meter is an all-in-one digital DC ammeter and watt, watt-hour and amp-hour meter. Watt's Up measures current, voltage and time --- and from those measurements calculates peak current, peak power, minimum voltage, power, energy and charge values for you, in real time, for the circuit in which you connect it.
The Arduino microcontroller makes it easy to learn about electronics, but it can be hard to know where to start. The 10 projects in "The SparkFun Arduino Inventor's Guide" will teach you to build, code and invent with the super-smart Arduino and a handful of parts.
This is the second book we've written here at SparkFun. If you are interested, you can find "The SparkFun Guide to Processing" here!
Last up today is a revision to the MyoWare Cable Shield. The shield still provides a 3.5mm jack where you can attach a three-electrode sensor cable, allowing you to test and use the MyoWare Muscle Sensor without actually attaching it to your person. But it has been updated to fit better with the other boards in the MyoWare product line.
And that's it! We hope you enjoy the Watt's Up --- or maybe you need a good summer read and check out our new book. As always, we can't wait to see what you make with these parts! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to see what projects you’ve made!
Thanks for stopping by. We'll see you next week with even more new products!
