New Product Roundup – July 22nd to July 28th
Welcome to another Saturday New Product Roundup! This week we have added a couple new products and tracked down an old favorite! Also, we pushed through a bunch more updates to the website, so hopefully the product pages are looking a lot better for all of our mobile users (if not, we suggest clearing your browser cache!)
New for the week: a lower cost, GP-20U7 56 Channel GPS receiver for all of your global positioning needs, a larger spool of 63/37 leaded solder, and last, but not least, we have managed to track down more of the 5V Inductive Charger modules – these are now back in stock after being unavailable for quite some time. Lets go have a closer look at each!
GPS Receiver – GP-20U7 (56 Channel)
The GP-20U7 is a compact GPS receiver with a built-in high performance all-in-one GPS chipset. The GP-20U7 accurately provides position, velocity, and time readings as well possessing high sensitivity and tracking capabilities. Thanks to the low power consumption this receiver requires, the GP-20U7 is ideal for portable applications such as tablet PCs, smart phones, and other devices requiring positioning capability.
63/37 Leaded Solder Spool – 100g
By popular request, we now have larger spools of 63/37 solder. The solder is leaded (63% tin, 37% lead) and features a water soluble rosin core. We recommend this solder for beginners and experts alike as 63/37 tends to have excellent thermal characteristics. This spool has 100 grams of solder (roughly 1/4 lb) and should last the average user quite some time.
Inductive Charging Set – 5V
Would you like to build your own wireless charger? This is a great starting point! Inductive charging is a way of powering a device without a direct wire connection. Most people have seen inductive charging in a rechargeable electric toothbrush: you may have noticed that you recharge it by placing it into the holder, but there's no direct plug. These chargers work by taking a power transformer and splitting it in half, an AC waveform is generated into one, and couples into the second coil.
Product Of The Week – 15% Off
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!
