So, About That Unladen Swallow… – Information


You requested for it and we put the FS3000-1015 on a board. We additionally launched the Particular person Sensor from Helpful Sensors earlier this week!




Whats up, everybody! It is Friday, but once more, and meaning extra new merchandise. This week, we now have three new merchandise to indicate off and all of it begins with the brand new FS3000-1015 Air Velocity Sensor! That is extraordinarily much like the sensor board we launched final yr, however this one can detect and measure air velocities as much as round 33 miles per hour as an alternative of simply 16mph. Following that, and we truly introduced this on Wednesday, however the brand new Particular person Sensor from Helpful Sensors is now obtainable (we’re at the moment out of inventory, however we’re at the moment accepting again orders to safe your spot in line once we get them again). We spherical out the week with a brand new Stepper Motor Driver. Now, let’s soar in and take a better have a look at all of this week’s new merchandise!

This model of the SparkFun Air Velocity Sensor Breakout is targeted round Renesas’ FS3000-1015, a surface-mount air velocity module with a variety of 0-15m/s (0-33.6mph), which is twice as a lot because the FS3000-1005. It makes use of a MEMS thermopile-based sensor, contains a digital output with 12-bit decision and includes a “strong” thermal isolation know-how and silicon carbide coating to guard it from abrasive put on and water condensation.

The Particular person Sensor from Helpful Sensors Inc. features a digicam module pre-programmed with algorithms that detect close by faces, and return info over a easy Qwiic I2C interface. It’s designed for use as an enter to a bigger system and be handled like some other sensor the place energy and data are supplied by way of SparkFun’s Qwiic I2C interface. There’s additionally a separate interrupt pin, TP1, which is used to point if any folks have been detected.

We count on to have extra inventory of this sensor inside the subsequent month. If you happen to place a again order, you may safe your spot in line for once we obtain extra inventory!

The TB6612 on this board contains a polarity safety FET on the motor voltage enter and a pullup on the “standby” allow pin. Every breakout chip comprises two full H-bridges (4 half H-bridges). Which means you’ll be able to drive 2-4 solenoids (solely two could be lively at a time, on reverse bridges), two DC motors bi-directionally, or one stepper motor. Simply be certain they’re good for 1.2 Amp or much less of present, since that is the restrict of this chip.

As a normal reminder since we solely have about 10 models left: The SparkFun Constellation MicroMod Equipment is our latest restricted version providing that joins the ranks of the SkeleBoard and the SnowBoard. As a substitute of releasing a single board this yr, we now have opted to launch a full equipment, as an alternative! This equipment combines each MicroMod and Qwiic in a single field with a restricted version MicroMod ATP Provider Board and MultiStar (this yr’s April Idiot’s Day joke). No, we aren’t joking this time! On account of common demand, we now have reworked the MultiStar right into a working (and far safer) celestial model of the MultiPort. Additionally included on this equipment is a MicroMod Screw Driver and two Qwiic Cables to get you connected! The ATP Provider Board and MultiStar included on this equipment characteristic a matte black PCB with a star scape design in white silk.
