SparkFun will be closed for Labor Day (9/7/2015). Orders will resume shipping out on Sept 8th. Have a great weekend!
It's another week and another round of sweet products. I know every week I talk about how cool the products are for that week, but I'm super serial this time. This is my favorite set of new products. OK, let's see what we have this week.
First up we have the much-anticipated Chumby Hacker Board. This board has a little bit of everything. Essentially, it's a Chumby, but made a bit more friendly (for hacking). It has USB, an LCD controller, joystick, microphone input, battery charger, RAM, pre-loaded Linux installation, NTSC video out, and even a header for Arduino shields! There's also a large community for support. Get them before they run out!
Here we have the new frequency counter kit. This allows you to measure frequencies up to about 6Mhz. It comes with an Arduino bootloader so you can even customize it to fit your needs. The kit comes with everything you need - just add power and you're ready to go.
KNOBS! That's right, we have 6 new knobs for you to choose from. We have a basic red, basic black, chicken head red, chicken head black, and black and silver metal knobs. Nothing puts the finishing touch on your project quite like a good knob.
We just got two new LCD's from 4D Systems. Both are self-contained graphics platforms that allow you to use them as standalone devices. Also, with new lower prices, they're a pretty good value for the features they include. We have a 1.44" and a 3.2" model. Check out a video here!
We are always trying to add more hardware to our catalog without becoming a hardware store. For our pogo beds, we've been using these lock nuts for some time. It dawned on us that they might come in handy for our customers. So, here they are!
Last and probably least is a simple neglected jumper cable. It has a JST connector on one and and bare wire on the other. However, the wire colors are backwards. Of course we hate throwing anything away that's still useful, so we decided to sell them for cheap. If you have a project where the colors don't matter, you can just use them as they are, or easily swap the cables.
That's all for this week. Tune in next week for week for even more stuff.
