Keep Up With Qwiic

The Qwiic Rapid Prototyping System has expanded. Time to check it out and stay up to date with the latest!

Favorited Favorite 0

The Qwiic Rapid Prototyping System has been around for a few years now, but in the last year it has really taken off. We've added dozens of new products and tutorials, and the rate of new Qwiic-connectable products being introduced is only growing. It's a great time to give our Qwiic page a new look, and add as many resources as possible to a centralized location. Along with this new page we've created an email list to give you updates about new Qwiic products, tutorials and promotions. If you've been a long-time fan of Qwiic, or just want to keep up-to-date with all things new in the Qwiic line, just drop your email in below!

We'd love to hear what you think about Qwiic. Let us know in the comments what you like to use Qwiic for, or what the next addition to our modular prototyping line should be. We'll I²C you later!!!

Along with the swanky new page we shot a new introduction video to Qwiic.

  • Your post is not only Qwiic, it's also very timely. Starting in the May issue of "ODROID Magazine" there will be a series of articles demonstrating how to incorporate the SparkFun Electronics Qwiic ecosystem into the daily life of the ODROID-GO game system. Yes, you read that right; a portable game machine that leads a double life as a research tool for making a remarkable variety of sensor readings.

    This series will run in the magazine throughout the summer. So, get your ODROID-GO game machine kit assembled (from either Hardkernel or ameriDroid) and build my Qwiic Adapter kit project (it's featured in the May issue) so that you can experience the best retro gaming system in town, while saving the world as an environmentalist superhero.

    You can find ODROID Magazine here: https://magazine.odroid.com/?ineedthispage=yes

    [The May issue should be available on or about 15 May.]

  • A simple item that would really make my life easier would be a Qwiic pulse counter -- something that did nothing more than count pulses and let me read (and possibly reset) the count at any time. This would eliminate the need to implement polling or interrupt logic in my microcontroller and I wouldn't have to worry about whether a simple 328p is fast enough to keep up with the pulses in addition to whatever else I have it doing.

  • I think that a great addition (hint, hint) would be a board that has something like the ATtiny85 found on, for instance, the 12-button keypad, that we could use for "non-standard" things, like maybe a 4x4 16-button keypad, or talking to a 2x16 LCD display (my experience is OLEDs aren't readable in full sunlight, so not good, for instance, for a "gadget" to be used on your riding lawnmower). I, for one, don't mind using a soldering iron, but like the idea of being able to string together most of the stuff for a "proof-of-concept" without having to do a LOT of soldering.
