Tick-Tock Goes the Clock Generator

We focus on the new, Qwiic-enabled Clock Generator as well as a (highly requested) USB-C to USB-C cable.

Hello everyone and welcome back. We have two new products to talk about this week, starting with the new Qwiic Clock Generator for all of you signal-generation afficionados. Is that a thing? Listen, if it isn't a thing already, we're making it a thing now! The second product we have to show you this week is one we were surprised by the number of requests for, but we're nothing if not accommodating, kind, incredibly intelligent and devastatingly attractive, so we now have a USB-C to USB-C cable. Let's jump in and take a closer look.

Customize your frequencies

SparkFun Clock Generator Breakout - 5P49V60 (Qwiic)


The SparkFun Qwiic Clock Generator Breakout offers a range of customizable frequencies in a range of signal types using a single reference clock. Four (single output) clock outputs can generate frequencies from 1MHz-200MHz and eight (differential output) clock outputs can generate frequencies from 1MHz-350MHz. The frequency's many properties can be manipulated in code via I2C using the SparkFun Arduino Library.

USB 2.0 C to C Cable - 1m


This USB 2.0 Type-C Cable is perfect for use with your Raspberry Pi 4 and other USB Type-C boards. USB Type-C connectors and cable assemblies offer greater PCB savings while enabling high-frequency mating in data, consumer and other I/O applications.

That's it for this week! As always, we can't wait to see what you make! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to see what projects you’ve made!

Never miss a new product!

    You come out with a new clock signal generator the same weekend that we switch over to daylight saving time (at least in the part of the world that sparkfun is in). Talk about altering time! Well played sparkfun!

      One of the advantages to living in Arizona is that we DON'T do daylight savings[sic] time. (Apparently they did try it here for one year back in the 1960s, and electric bills went through the proverbial roof. Every once in a while I hear a suggestion that we should try going an hour the OTHER way ["spring back, fall forward"] but it's never gotten much traction.)

        I grew up in Hawaii, which also doesn't adhere to the daylight savings time standard. Living in the continental US, I still forget about daylight savings every year and I still don't know how everyone finds this chaos acceptable. FYI- The southern hemisphere does use daylights savings in reverse.
