We have a rather unique slew of new products this week including Qwiic PIR Kits, a Satellite Transceiver Breakout, GNSS-RTK Accessories, CNC Machines, and more!
We have a new Proximity Sensing Kit for you to check out, along with a few new digital multimeters and a new kit from SparkX!
Just because it’s already October and you haven’t started this year’s Halloween build doesn’t mean it can’t still be epic! SparkFun’s Qwiic I2C environment can help even us Olympic-level procrastinators rival the street’s best Halloween builds!
Working from home is not without its difficulties, but with just a couple of proximity sensors and SparkFun's new Qwiic Dual Solid State Relay, you can create a light show with a wave of your hands.
When it comes to proximity and distance sensing, LiDAR has a lot to offer. With Garmin's LiDAR-Lite v4, there are some new features and advances you're definitely going to want to see.
It's time to bounce that old tennis ball out of your garage, and up your game with this simple project that lets you know exactly where to stop when pulling in to your garage.
With just a handful of parts and a couple of hours of work, you can easily repulse all of your co-workers at this year's office Halloween party!
What type of proximity sensor is best suited to your next project? We've put together a Proximity Sensor Comparison Guide to help you choose the right tool for the job!
The story goes that George Antheil was madly in love with Hedy Lamarr and this was an attempt to gain her interest. There are no documents…
I know a guy who is a big "fan" of IoT, even though he's not all that technical. His "day job" is as a business attorney, so he can afford a…
That's true, the blue LEDs would ideally have a resistor closer to 4x than 2x when jumping from 3.3V to 5V. I don't remember my original…
Thanks for your reply! Your "roughly double" resistances for 5V vs 3.3V imply that the difference between LED drop and 3,3V is same as 3,3V…
Your right, that would be a great way to fine tune the current for LEDs! You're also correct that the goal of this project was finding the…
Hi there! For the sake of brevity, I didn't go into full detail about how exactly I calculated the 5V resistor values. But in short, I took…
Responding to your note about the highly non-linear relationship between the pot position and the current -- a way to address this would be…
Nice initiative Dryw! But there's something a bit off in the "5V resistor value" calculations, supposedly using Ohm's law. The forward…
