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 new ENS160 Air Quality Sensor is now available with two new SparkX boards!
Hello and welcome back to another Friday Product Post here at SparkFun Electronics! This week, we have a handful of new products to show off and it all starts with the new ENS160 Indoor Air Quality Sensor! This Qwiic-enabled breakout consists of four independent heaters and gas sensor elements based on metal oxide (MOX) technology and a controller. Following that, we have two new products from SparkX, a GNSS Antenna Splitter and a Qwiic Micro Dynamic NFC/RFID Tag. Let's jump in and take a closer look at this week's new products!
The SparkFun ENS160 Indoor Air Quality Sensor is a digital multi-gas sensor solution with four sensor elements that can be used in a wide range of applications including building automation, smart home, and HVAC. The independent hotplate control allows the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including ethanol, toluene, hydrogen, and oxidizing gases with superior sensitivity. The ENS160 supports intelligent algorithms to process raw sensor measurements on-chip. These algorithms calculate CO2-equivalents, TVOC, air quality indices (AQIs), and perform humidity and temperature compensation, as well as baseline management, all on-chip. Raw sensor measurements can be read for further customization.
Our GNSS Splitter (Power Divider) lets you connect a single GNSS antenna to two boards or modules. It splits (divides) the antenna signal from Port S equally between Port 1 and Port 2. It is the perfect accessory for our NEO-D9S correction data receiver, allowing you to feed both the NEO-D9S and a separate GNSS module from a single antenna.
The STMicroelectronics ST25DV dynamic Near Frequency Communication / Radio Frequency Identification tag ICs are awesome! The Qwiic Micro Dynamic NFC/RFID Tag offers 64-kBit (8-kBytes) of EEPROM memory which can be accessed over both I2C and RF (NFC)! It's a state-of-the-art tag which conforms to ISO/IEC 15693 or NFC Forum Type 5 recommendations. You can read and write the tag's memory using NFC even while the tag is powered down or disconnected!
The SparkFun Constellation MicroMod Kit is our newest limited edition offering that joins the ranks of the SkeleBoard and the SnowBoard. Instead of releasing a single board this year, we have opted to release a full kit, instead! This kit combines both MicroMod and Qwiic in a single box with a limited edition MicroMod ATP Carrier Board and MultiStar (this year's April Fool's Day joke). No, we aren't joking this time! Due to popular demand, we have reworked the MultiStar into a working (and much safer) celestial version of the MultiPort. Also included in this kit is a MicroMod Screw Driver and two Qwiic Cables to get you hooked up! The ATP Carrier Board and MultiStar included in this kit feature a matte black PCB with a star scape design in white silk.

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!
SparkX is back with a new NFC/RFID Tag, the FLIR Lepton Breakout V2 is now available on its own, and we have a new and better way to remove a U.FL-terminated cable.
Or do, we aren't your parent. This week, we have a new 8 Channel Level Shifter, a version of our famous OpenLog Artemis, and some new USB-C cables, and we'll see what SparkX is up to!
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!
Our new MicroMod Ethernet Function Board is now available! Also, new products from SparkX, and more!
