New Product Roundup – April 27th

It is Saturday, and time for our weekly New Product Roundup! Just a few new items for this post-Easter short week. We have a flexible solar panel, a new fuse holder, a very slow DC gearmotor, and a new Product of the Week – so let’s go have a look!

New to the Catalogue:
Starting off, we have a new flexible solar panel. This very thin panel is sandwiched between flexible polymers and can be bent and formed to fit curved surfaces. The panels themselves are not terribly large and can be connected to create higher voltages or higher currents. Next up we have a breadboard / perfboard compatible fuse holder for 5 x 20mm glass fuses. The casing is plastic and has a nice cover that snaps closed. Finally, we have a new DC Gearmotor. This motor is slow – just 12RPM at 12VDC. It is ideal for applications where rotational speeds need to be low. Running at a lower voltage (or driving with a motor driver) will achieve even slower rotational speeds.

New Product Roundup – April 20th

Happy Easter everyone! Just a quick reminder: we are closed today for the Easter Holiday but will be open on Monday with normal business hours. With that out of the way – we have 7 new products and a new product of the week to share!

New Products
To start off, we have a new telephone style keypad – these are perfect for projects that require some form of numerical input. We also added a 16 pin dip that is actually just a nice enclosed pack of 8 560 Ohm resistors. Next up, a simple bracket for holding HC-SR04 Ultrasonic sensors. These are clear acrylic and allow the sensor to be easily mounted. Speaking of holding things in place, we have also added a 40 piece set of M2 screws and nuts. Next, we have the SparkFun Pocket AVR Programmer – these are perfect for programming ATMEGA328’s and ATTINY85’s (and many others!). Finally, we have two new cables: A spare AVR programming cable with 6 and 10 pin programming ports and a 3’ USB A to mini-B (also used with the Pocket AVR Programmer).

New Product Roundup – April 13th

Happy Saturday – we are back with another weekly New Product Roundup! This week we have a couple new products for building your first robot, a sensor to help your plants from dying, and a couple new cables. We also have a new product of the week – let’s go have a look!

New Products
To start, we have the Adafruit CRICKIT for micro:bit – this is the perfect add-on for the BBC micro:bit and will have you building your first robot in no time! As always, this Adafruit board has an excellent set of resources. Continuing with the robot theme, we have a new continuous rotation servo – these make excellent drive systems for simple robots and don’t require complex motor controllers. We also have a new Soil Moisture Sensor from Adafruit, these are a capacitive designed sensor hand will not corrode over time in the damp ground. For the soil moisture sensor we also have a handy breakout cable that allows the soil moisture sensor to be connected to any standard male breakaway pins. Finally, we have fancy new multimeter leads with detachable alligator clip ends – a must have!
