We are still shipping! However, order processing may take longer than usual and we cannot guarantee same day shipments due to staffing guidelines from the CDC. Please see all COVID-19 updates here. Thank you for your continued support.
All sorts of great new stuff came in at the same time! Go grab yourself a drink and stay a while...
This is the Trackballer, the breakout board for the Blackberry Trackball. Board comes equipped with four hall-effect sensors, LEDs (RGBW), and the Blackberry Trackball. Check out the video!
The trackball is surprisingly sensitive! And a little RGB blinky doesn't hurt either.
uLog - The Lil-est Logger - The board that was launched in a rocket out behind SparkFun the other day. 3 Channels of 10 bit ACD logging to a 16Mb flash with a simple UART interface.
The O-Clock, i.e. the AVR Oscilloscope Clock is back in a new all SMD version. Turn your X-Y analog oscilloscope into 1 of 30 display combinations.
A customer asked why we didn't carry to impressively packed, small ATtiny85. We didn't have a good answer, so we got it!
On the left: GE864 evaluation board. This is a great board to get you up and running with this small cellular access point. The eval board is nice and light weight so you can easily embed the board in your project. On the right: GE865 breakout. Check out the other GE86x family of tiny GSM/GPRS modems.
The WiFly Breakout is a really easy way to connect your embedded project to a WiFi 802.11b/g network. WiFi with serial commands!
Our largest solar cell yet! Rated for 8V open voltage and 650mA short circuit.
The TFT-LCD ScreenKey is a tactile switch combined with a 128x128 TFT-LCD display that can generate any text or graphics with up to 65,536 color support. Why use just a button when you can display full color images on one?
Many of our IMU boards are being revised with new sensors. The IMU 5DOF has been completely redesigned using the new IDG500 dual axis gyro and the new ADXL335 triple axis accelerometer all in a much tighter footprint with more flexibility and greater stability in the outputs.
The IMU 3DOF is using the new ADXRS61x single axis gyros. Three different flavors, all with the ADXL320 dual axis accelerometer: ADXRS614 (50 degrees per second), ADXRS610 (300 degree per second), and the ADXRS613 (150 degree per second).
The bread board power supply stick is a must have for any breadboard. Give it 6-12V input and select either 3.3V or 5V regulated output. Simple to use, and doesn't take up a lot of breadboard space.
Another customer request: We were selling the Nordic FOB, but what if they only wanted the enclosure? Now is your chance. The Key Fob Enclosure with Button Pad is offered without any internal electronics. And because the PCB layout inside one of these enclosures can be a bit tricky, we offer our Nordic FOB eagle files to help you get started!
This is the Serial Graphic LCD on the left and the Graphic LCD Serial Backpack. The Graphic LCD Serial Backpack interfaces to either our 160x128 pixel ?Huge? Graphic LCD, or the smaller 128x64 pixel display, and provides a simple serial interface to a full range of controls. Now you can have a great graphical display with a simple to use serial interface!
If you ever wanted to talk into your watch, this is the part to get. The MEMS Microphone consists of 2 ground pins, power, and an analog output.
The WiiChuck Adapter is a small PCB that is designed to be inserted into the connector of a Nintendo Wii Nunchuck to provide access to all 4 wires of the remote. Check out the WiiChuck homepage for tutorials and Arduino libraries.
Breaking into a new spectrum: IR LEDs. Great for turning your TV on and off, remote control, even multi-touch surfaces!
These are force sensing resistors. The resistance changes depending on how much pressure is being applied to the sensing area. These are not scale accuracy, but are great for detecting a presence (someone is standing on me) or a rough amount of pressure on a surface.
The PIC 28 pin 48MHz 12K 10A/D USB 18F2455. An awesome PIC with USB built in!
The WingShield ScrewShield extends all pins of the Arduino out to 3.5mmrnpitch screw terminals. Both sides of the shield are broken out to the side of the Arduino, to allow access to everything on the main Arduino board.
This is an 8-pin female header, with extra long legs that are slightly offset. The offset helps correct for the weird 0.16" spacing between the two 8-pin headers on the digital side of an Arduino. Stick this and an 8-pin Stackable Header on an Arduino and D7 and D8 pins will be spaced by a more standard 0.2". This allows you to then use a standard perf board stacked on top of the Arduino.
