The Cerberus is a three-headed cable-beast that will ensure that you’re never stuck looking for a USB cable that fits your device. At one end of the Cerberus you have the standard A-type connector, which you can plug into your computer or USB power supply; At the other end are three common USB connectors: B, mini-B and micro-B.
The best part? It’s SparkFun Red and has the flame logo embossed on the connector shroud. Sweet.
Note: When using this board in extreme high-demand applications it may be necessary to improve thermal performance with a heat-sink or fan and to solder the wires directly to the board instead of using a screw terminal (in addition to the myriad other complications present in a high-current system) However, when using the board at currents up to 6A the...
The Hydra brings the 5V and GND lines from your USB power supply, computer or otherwise, and breaks those lines out into three common power connectors: Barrel Plug, JST and Alligator Clips! The clips are shrouded to avoid shorts and the barrel plug is center positive. The cable is 6 feet long overall which give you plenty of room to work.
This is a USB 2.0 type B to Mini-B 5-pin black cable. You know, the mini-B connector that usually comes with USB Hubs, Cameras, MP3 players, etc. We specifically like these 6" long cables because using USB peripherals in projects within a small enclosure is much easier these days, and most times you really don’t need six feet of cable to do that.
The basic connecting cable for any development board. Use these cables to hook any computer with a standard RS232 Serial port to any of our boards. Cable color and shape may vary slightly from image as our stock rotates.
These extension cables have a type A male connector on one end that plugs into any computer. The opposing end has a female type A connector allowing a second USB cable to be inserted. This allows as many cables to be daisy chained together as needed. May come in White or Black. Cable color and shape may vary slightly from image as our stock rotates.
Used for programming, this cable allows the PICAXE to be connected to any computer with a serial port. The folks at PICAXE have developed a very convenient way to develop with PIC microcontrollers! By placing a small bootloader onto the IC, the user can download new PICAXE code onto the IC over a serial connection. This cable has a standard DB9 connection...
This 3ft Category 6 (CAT 6) Ethernet cable is the solution to your internet working needs. With a speed of up to 500MHz you can connect to your LAN/WAN segments and networking gear at maximum speed. Also, with its superior connector you get a cable that is built for speed and endurance.
Note: This cable is not meant to be plugged directly into a computer’s serial port. It is meant to plug into some sort of hardware interface.
You might have seen these cables used in computers. They are typically used to bring USB connections from a motherboard to the external case, or the rear expansion slots. They have a 0.1" spaced 4-pin header on one end and a USB A connector on the other.
Each cable has a female RJ45 on one side which is adapted to a male RJ45 and 5.5x2.1mm barrel jack connector on the other side. The ‘injector’ cable has a female barrel jack connector and the ‘splitter’ cable has a male barrel jack.
This board allows you to interface with your car’s OBD-II bus. It provides you a serial interface using the ELM327 command set and supports all major OBD-II standards such as CAN and JBUS. The board also provides a footprint which mates directly to our FTDI Basic or a Bluetooth Mate. The DB9 connector mates with our DB9 to OBD-II cable listed below.
This is an inexpensive HDMI cable that you can use to hook up your Raspberry Pi to a suitable monitor or TV. Heck, you can hook up anything you want with it, HDMI is becoming more and more common as a digital audio/video standard.
The ProtoSnap LilyTwinkle board is a very simple way to jump right into e-textiles. By including the LilyTwinkle, a coin cell battery holder (with built-in switch), and four white LEDs the ProtoSnap LilyTwinkle board easily allows you to add some sparkle to any project. To make your e-textile experience all the more enjoyable we have added a needle set...
If you have a USB OTG device, you need one of these Female A to Micro-A cables to act as a host. Remember, not all devices are USB-OTG compatible, so make sure that whatever you’re plugging in actually has this ability so you don’t damage something!
This HDMI to VGA Adapter enables you to connect an HDMI port to a VGA port. These adapters are especially useful for displays or monitors that only use VGA ports so they can be used with HDMI devices like the pcDuino or Raspberry Pi. Each adapter comes with a 3.5mm jack cable for audio output.
The FTDI cable is designed around an FT232, which is housed in a USB-A connector. The other side of the cable is terminated with a separated 4-pin connector with the following pinout: RX (Yellow), TX (Orange), VCC (Red), and GND (Black). A link to the FTDI drivers can be found in the Documents section below.
Each of the GPIO pins is broken out on a “servo-style” header field with PWR and GND to allow you to easily connect devices using a 3-pin servo cable. When powered using the barrel jack connector, the PWR rail can even be switched between 5V (from the Arduino’s voltage regulator) and Vin using the onboard slide switches.
The LIDAR-Lite Accessory Cable is 200mm (~7.8in) long with specific pin-outs found on the second page of the Operation & Technical Manual below.
If you’re looking to play with PICAXE microcontrollers on a computer with only USB, look no further! The PICAXE USB programming cable allows PICAXE micros to be programmed from any platform (Windows and Linux). The cable has the FT232R embedded into the USB connector and will show up on your computer as a new COM port.
The RTC maintains seconds, minutes, hours, day, date, month, and year information. The date at the end of the month is automatically adjusted for months with fewer than 31 days, including corrections of leap year. The clock operates in either the 24-hour or 12-hour format with AM/PM indicator. Two programmable time-of-day alarms and a programmable...
We were curious what made this cable work, so we tore one open and found that it’s simply an FTDI FT232 paired with a Zywyn ZT213 RS232 Transceiver. You can find the datasheets for those devices below as well as a link to the FTDI driver page. We’ve also uploaded a copy of the included drivers CD in zip format.
This is a USB 2.0 type B to Micro-B 5-pin black cable. You know, the mini-B connector that usually comes with cell phones, Cameras, MP3 players, etc. We specifically like these 6" long cables because using USB peripherals in projects within a small enclosure is much easier these days, and most times you really don’t need six feet of cable to do that.
This is a 1.5' long USB extension cable equipped with type A male connector on one end to plug into your computer and a type A female connector at the other that allows for a second USB cable to be inserted. This cable is perfect for adding a periphery that utilizes USB without having it plugged directly into your computer while not cluttering your work...
This is a standard issue USB 2.0 cable. This is the most common A to B Male/Male type peripheral cable, the kind that’s usually used for printers. Compatible with most SFE designed USB boards as well as USB Arduino boards like the Uno.
USB 2.0 type A to micro USB 5-pin. This is a new, smaller connector for USB devices. Micro USB connectors are about half the height of mini USB. Micro USB is found on newer hand held devices like cell phones and portable media devices. Works great with the Google Nexus One. Cable color and shape may vary slightly from image as our stock rotates.
The board incorporates a charging circuit, status LED, connector for your battery (JST-type used in the batteries we carry), and a micro-USB connector. A small mounting hole allows this charger to be easily embedded into a project.
Not only does the Teensy 3.1 XBee Adapter connect a XBee and Teensy together, it also acts as a breakout board for both. Each pin on the Teensy and XBee has been broken out to standard 0.1" spaced through hole soldering points that allow you to connect any additional parts that you would like to incorporate with the adapter.
TRRS connectors are the 3.5mm audio-style connectors that you see on some phones, MP3 players and development boards. TRRS stands for “Tip, Ring, Ring, Sleeve,” which reflects the fact that, unlike a standard stereo connector, this actually has three conductors and a ground.
