The new BGM220 Explorer Kit from Silicon Labs is now available, along with some existing Raspberry Pi Compute Modules.
Hello everyone, and happy Friday! This week, we start with the new BGM220 Explorer Kit from Silicon Labs. This palm-sized Bluetooth development platform is an extremely economical board that should open up possibilities for new IoT and wireless projects. Next up, we bring you more official Raspberry Pi products with an assortment of Compute Module 3+ boards and peripherals.
We're also in the middle of our month of sales, with unique daily deals every week day from November 2-26. Be sure to check out this blog post for details on our daily deals, Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales! If you're curious when you'll need to get your order before the holidays, make sure to check out our Holiday Shipping 2020 page.
Now, let's take a closer look at all of our new products!
The BGM220 Explorer Kit from Silicon Labs is an ultra-low cost, small form factor development and evaluation platform for the BGM220P Bluetooth® Module. The kit includes a mikroBUS™ socket and Qwiic connector, allowing users to add features to the kit with a large selection of off-the-shelf boards.
The Compute Module 3+ Development Kit is made for developing industrial applications with CM3+, CM3+/Lite, CM3, CM3 Lite and CM1. The Development Kit contains the critical hardware that allows you to design the Compute Module into a custom system, and gives you the freedom to add extra components and place parts exactly where your product needs them.
The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ contains the guts of a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (the BCM2837 processor and 1GB LPDDR2 RAM) with 8GB, 16GB or 32GB of eMMC Flash memory. This module allows a designer to leverage the Raspberry Pi hardware and software stack in their own custom systems and form factors. In addition this module has extra IO interfaces over and above what is available on the Raspberry Pi model A/B boards, opening up more options for the designer.
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!
