SparkX products are not nearly as shiny or polished as the regular SparkFun product; we can get to market faster. Are you ok with a board that hasn't been fully user tested? Can you read a manual? SparkX is for you.
SparkX doesn't care if something isn't quite finished. Shoot, we're only pretty sure an idea will work. We'll let you know exactly what's known and what's tested, the rest is up to you. Are you ok with a green wire and no beginner's guide? SparkX is for you.
SparkX chases the shiny. If there's a product or project that appeals to us we'll do it regardless of market considerations. Want to play with something that may never make it to market? SparkX is for you.
The ZED-F9T GNSS Timing Breakout is now available along with a new SiK Telemetry Radio!
This week, we finally get to show off a board that we have been working on for the past couple of months, the ZED-F9T GNSS Timing Breakout! This is a new piece of technology that we are excited to finally release and we eagerly await some of the new projects you make with it! Following that we have a new telemetry radio kit from our friends at HolyBro, as well as a few new cables from SparkX. Now, let's jump in and take a closer look at all of this week's new products.
The SparkFun GNSS Timing Breakout offers a unique entry into SparkFun's geospatial catalog by featuring the ZED-F9T GNSS receiver from u-blox. The ZED-F9T provides up to five nanosecond timing accuracy under clear skies with no external GNSS correction, making it perfect for applications where timing accuracy is imperative. Need an extremely accurate time reference to maximize the efficiency of your IoT network of 5G devices? The ZED-F9T GNSS Timing Breakout could be the perfect solution.
The SiK Telemetry Radio from Holybro, is a small, lightweight, and inexpensive open source radio platform that can transmit serial data more than 300m out of the box. The radio uses open source SiK firmware, which allows for a simple serial cable replacement to transmit any serial data including telemetry, RTK correction data (RTCM), or simple Serial.print() statements without any configuration required.
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, Facebook or LinkedIn. Please be safe out there, be kind to one another, and we'll see you next week with even more new products!
The RTK Facet joins the ranks of SparkFun's enclosed surveying tools at a fraction of the price of comparable products.
We have a load of new products to show off today, and most of them are miniaturized versions of popular peripherals.
A new version of our Tinker Kit is available, along with a new RF board from SparkX and a new LIDAR!
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!
