Support, Sales, and General Enquiry emails will still be answered – so feel free to get in touch if you have any questions!

With that out of the way – on to the new stuff!

New Products This Week


MyoWare Muscle Sensor


Using our muscles to control things is the way that most of us are accustomed to doing it. We push buttons, pull levers, move joysticks... but what if we could take the buttons, levers and joysticks out of the equation? This is the MyoWare Muscle Sensor, an Arduino-powered, all-in-one electromyography (EMG) sensor from Advancer Technologies. The MyoWare board acts by measuring the filtered and rectified electrical activity of a muscle; outputting 0-Vs Volts depending the amount of activity in the selected muscle, where Vs signifies the voltage of the power source...

Red/Green 5mm Panel Mount LED


This 5mm LED is designed for use as a panel indicator. These LEDs fits in a 6.35mm (0.25”) hole and has wires already attached for that extra little bit of convenience. This LED is bi-polar and depending on the polarity provided, the LED will light up either Red or Green. When the Red wire is connected to positive, the LED will be Red, when Black is connected to positive, it will be Green... [Read More]



SparkFun Pulse Oximeter and Heart Rate Sensor – Qwiic


The SparkFun Pulse Oximeter and Heart Rate Sensor is an I2C based biometric sensor, utilizing two chips from Maxim Integrated: the MAX32664 Biometric Sensor Hub and the MAX30101 Pulse Oximetry and Heart Rate Module. While the latter does all the sensing, the former is an incredibly small and fast Cortex M4 processor that handles all of the algorithmic calculations, digital filtering, pressure/position compensation, advanced R-wave detection, and automatic gain control. SparkFun has provided a Qwiic connector to easily connect to the I2C data lines but you will also need to connect to two additional lines. This board is very small, measuring at 1in x 0.5in (25.4mm x 12.7mm), which means it will fit nicely on your finger without all the bulk. The MAX30101 does all the sensing by utilizing its internal LEDs to bounce light off the arteries and arterioles in your finger's subcutaneous layer and sensing how much light is absorbed with its photodetectors...
