The SparkFun Nano Power Timer is here, with plenty of power supplies to go along with it. You'll be a regular Montgomery Scott!
Hello everyone, and welcome back to another new product Friday! This week we have the SparkFun Nano Power Timer with an example project from Rob; a beefy 5V, 4A power supply ideal for your Jetson Nano; and four different wall adapters. Let's take a closer look!
The SparkFun Nano Power Timer will run while only consuming minimal power (approximately 35nA) and turn your project on after a set amount of time. When you are done polling your sensors, posting data to the web, writing to your logger or planning world domination, your microcontroller can tell the Nano Power Timer to turn off the power. No more running your microcontroller all day when you only want to read the ambient temperature once per hour.
This is a high-quality power supply, manufactured specifically for SparkFun, that packs a punch: 20W at 5V and 4000mA! This power supply helps squeeze every drop of performance out of a board like the Jetson Nano, but can also work to power addressable LED strips and projects that require higher power requirements.
We've picked up four new wall adapters that have been designed specifically to help power your project in a more efficient way. These new "wall warts" include a 5VDC, 2A micro USB; a 5VDC, 2A barrel jack; a 12VDC, 600mA barrel jack; and a 9VDC, 650mA barrel jack.
