Hello everyone, and welcome back to your familiar Friday Product Post. We are back from Thanksgiving break, still very full, and ready to release new products! This week we have three new products, starting off with the super small Qwiic SHIM for your Raspberry Pi. We follow that up with a new version of our popular LED Starter kit, as well as a new CMOS Camera.

As a reminder, next week we are running a Week of Deals sale in case you missed Black Friday/Cyber Monday! The sale will run from 12:01 a.m. MT on December 9, 2019, to 11:59 p.m. MT on December 13, 2019. New products will be released each day, and will be available at that sale price from their respective release days through Friday, December 13. No rainchecks or backorders will be allowed. Distributor accounts will not be eligible for sale prices. We will not be allowing combining of orders during this sale.

Now onto the new products for the week!


SparkFun Qwiic SHIM for Raspberry Pi

SparkFun Qwiic SHIM for Raspberry Pi


The SparkFun Qwiic SHIM for Raspberry Pi is a small, easily removable breakout that adds a Qwiic connector to your Raspberry Pi. The SHIM design allows you to plug directly to the Pi's I2C bus with no soldering, and the thin PCB design allows for it to be sandwiched on your Pi GPIO with other HATs! The Qwiic SHIM works great when you do not need the full capabilities of the Qwiic pHAT for Raspberry Pi, or if you want to add a Qwiic connector to your Pi but don't have room for another HAT.
