New Product Roundup – July 8th to July 14th

Happy Saturday – we are back with another edition of our New Product Roundup! This week we are all about power. We have added several new Pololu Boost Regulators (used to boost lower voltages to higher voltages) to our collection. Just so you can keep tabs on all that current you are consuming, we also have a new SparkFun Current Sensor Breakout Board. Product of the week is the official Raspberry Pi Camera V2 – it is on sale for 15% Off until Friday so don’t miss out!







5V Step-Up Voltage Regulator U1V11F5

This compact (0.45″×0.6″) U1V11F5 switching step-up (or boost) voltage regulator efficiently generates 5 V from input voltages as low as 0.5 V. Unlike most boost regulators, the U1V11F5 offers a true shutdown option that turns off power to the load, and it automatically switches to a linear down-regulation mode when the input voltage exceeds the output.

SparkFun Current Sensor Breakout – ACS723

The SparkFun Current Sensor Breakout is a high accuracy board that utilizes the ACS723 for moderate AC and DC current sensing applications. The ACS723 sensor uses a Hall effect sensor to output a voltage relative to the current flowing through the IP+ and IP- pins on the board. The advantage of using a Hall effect sensor, specifically, is that the circuit being sensed and the circuit reading the sensor are electrically isolated meaning that, although your Arduino is running on 5V, the sensed circuit can be operating at higher DC or AC voltages!

12V Step-Up Voltage Regulator

This powerful boost regulator efficiently generates an output voltage of 12 V from an input voltage as low as 2.9 V while allowing an input current as high as 5 A. This regulator has built-in reverse-voltage protection, short-circuit protection, thermal shutdown (which typically activates at 165°C), a soft-start feature that reduces inrush current, and an under-voltage lockout that causes the regulator to turn off when the input voltage is below 2.5 V (typical).

3.3V Step-Up Voltage Regulator U1V11F3

This compact (0.45″×0.6″) U1V11F3 switching step-up (or boost) voltage regulator efficiently generates 3.3V from input voltages as low as 0.5 V. Unlike most boost regulators, the U1V11F3 offers a true shutdown option that turns off power to the load, and it automatically switches to a linear down-regulation mode when the input voltage exceeds the output.

Upcoming Workshops


With the nice weather out there, our scheduled workshops will be taking a break over the summer! Do you have a group or want to schedule a private session? These are still available for booking, please contact us for more information!
