As promised, the JetBot v2.1 is now available, along with the new GPS-RTK-SMA Breakout.
Hello everyone and welcome back to another Friday Product Post! We have quite a few new products to showcase today and we start it off with the new JetBot v2.1 kits, one with a Jetson Nano Developer Kit and one without (for those of you who already have one). As we mentioned last month with the v2.0 release, the only change to v2.1 is an updated 136-degree FOV camera and new cables.
Next up is the new SparkFun GPS-RTK-SMA Breakout, which is based on the SparkFun GPS-RTK2, but instead of being equipped with a U.FL connector it uses (you guessed it) an SMA.
To round out the week, we have a few additional connectors that you might need so make sure to check those out too.
The SparkFun JetBot AI Kit is a robot platform powered by the Jetson Nano Developer Kit V3 by NVIDIA. This SparkFun kit is based on the open source NVIDIA JetBot. We understand that not everyone has access to multiple 3D printers and a whole warehouse of electronics, so we wanted to build a kit from ready-to-assemble parts to get you up and running as quickly as possible. The SparkFun JetBot AI Kit V2.1 is a great launchpad for creating entirely new AI projects for makers, students and enthusiasts who are interested in learning AI and building fun applications. It’s straightforward to set up and use, and is compatible with many popular accessories.
Don't worry, we still carry the SparkFun JetBot AI Kit v2.1 (without Jetson Nano) for those of you who already have a Jetson and either don't need a new one or want to use one you already own.
Based on the SparkFun GPS-RTK2 design, the SparkFun GPS-RTK-SMA Breakout raises the bar for high-precision GPS, and is the latest in a line of powerful RTK boards featuring the ZED-F9P module from u-blox. The ZED-F9P is a top-of-the-line module for high accuracy GNSS and GPS location solutions, including RTK capable of 10mm, three-dimensional accuracy. With this board, you will be able to know your X, Y, and Z location (or any object's) within roughly the width of your fingernail!
The ZED-F9P is unique in that it is capable of both rover and base station operations. Utilizing our handy Qwiic system, no soldering is required to connect it to the rest of your system. However, we still have broken out 0.1"-spaced pins in case you prefer to use a breadboard.
These stackable headers are made to work with the SparkFun Qwiic Shield for Arduino Nano or any comparable shield to connect with a Arduino Nano footprint. This set includes two 15-pin headers; the pins are spaced by 0.1".
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!
