These connectors are made from high-temp nylon with gold-plated spring pins or sockets molded in. The shape of this generic XT60 prevents reverse polarity, and when plugged in the connection is super-solid. Perfect for applications up to 65A continuous draw. Sold in pairs of 1 male and 1 female connector.
The intuitive menu system means charging and cycling is an easy process and can be done quickly and accurately either in the field, by using a 12V input such as a car battery, or at home with a 12V power supply.
The MSO-19 offers several different triggering options including adjustable rising and falling edge triggers, pulse width, logic triggers, even I2C and SPI trigger words. Also, because of the large buffer size and quick processor in the MSO-19, the speed of your computer won’t significantly effect the performance of your instrument. Did we mention...
This smart SMD tester is essentially a pair of multimeter tweezers. This allows you to troubleshoot circuits with small SMD parts without having to fumble with large probes or long wires. Test resistors, capacitors and diodes one-handed!
The Logic Pro 8 has a rugged, custom-machined aluminum enclosure and can be carried in the included zip-up carrying case (which is small enough to toss in your laptop bag). This is a great field diagnostic tool as well as a welcome addition to any workbench.
The XBee Shield mates directly with an Arduino Pro or USB board, and equips it with wireless communication capabilities using the popular XBee module. This is SparkFun’s own design and is a distant relative to the official XBee Shield from Arduino.
Each channel of the oscilloscope can be selected as AC or DC, coupled by adjusting the jumper that is located behind that channel’s BNC input connector. In addition, the two AWG channels are equipped with BNC terminations, and each channel can have either the 50-ohm or the 0-ohm termination selected.
Next time you need to check the current on your robot’s motors, connect the Mooshimeter and drive the bot around while viewing (or logging) your current draw. Not only that but with the multi-channel feature you can also measure voltage (and consequently total power) at the same time. You are no longer tethered to your multimeter.
This Thermal Gap Filler provides 1.1W/mK of thermal conductivity that can conform to most surfaces.
This is a simple 4-pack of momentary, multicolor buttons, great for all sorts of projects! Unlike previous iterations of multicolor buttons, this pack’s tactile switches are actually recessed into the housing so they don’t accidentally fall off during use. Each pack comes with one red button, one blue button, one yellow button and one green button.
The T4s Intelligent Universal Charger possesses an output voltage of 4.2V, 3.6V or 1.48V, depending on your charging mode, with an output current of either 425mA charging four batteries at once or 850mA charging two.
This is a unique board recommended by a SparkFun customer. When playing with microSD, you sometimes need to view what the SPI traffic is doing, whether for hacking or debugging. The SparkFun microSD Sniffer allows you to hook up an external device, such as a logic analyzer or microcontroller, to view what signals are being passed back and forth.
This non-contact infrared thermometer makes it a breeze to take quick and accurate surface temperature readings without getting too close for comfort. Laser sighting ensures that you’re pointing at the right spot: Simply pull the trigger and line up the laser dot where you want to measure the temperature.
The version 3 of DSO Nano differs from version 2 in that it does not use white plastic shell. Instead, it uses black metal shell which is more durable and rugged.
The Black DSO Quad is an open-source pocket-sized 4-channel digital oscilloscope. It’s based on the ARM cortex M3 32-bit platform, providing 72MS/s sampling rate with integrated FPGA and high speed ADC. The Internal 2MB memory can even store waveforms in various formats which you can transfer to your computer using a mini-USB cable.
The analog and digital inputs and outputs can be connected to a circuit using simple wire probes to connect and utilize the inputs and outputs. Driven by the free WaveForms 2015 (Mac, Linux and Windows Compatible) software, Analog Discovery 2 can be configured to work as any one of several traditional instruments.
This 4-bit noninverting translator uses two separate configurable power-supply rails. The A port is designed to track VCCA. VCCA accepts any supply voltage from 1.2V to 3.6V. The B port is designed to track VCCB.
These needle tipped multimeter probes are great for attaching to multimeters, power supplies, oscilloscopes, function generators, etc.
The online STK Experiment Guide (in the Documents section below) contains step-by-step instructions of how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and explained, and even includes troubleshooting tips in case something goes wrong.
This isn’t your expensive, flashy type of multimeter, this is for all those starving students that need to buy their first good, low-cost digital multimeter. This meter doesn’t have the ability to auto-power off, it isn’t capable of auto-ranging, and it won’t be able to measure frequency.
The Ardumoto Shield is an easy-to-use dual motor controller for Arduino. Combined with an Arduino, the Ardumoto makes a fantastic controller platform for RC vehicles or even small autonomous robots. At the heart of the Ardumoto – the big, black chip right in the middle – is an L298, one of our favorite dual-channel motor drivers around, capable of driving...
This is an interface cable for the Bus Pirate, designed to connect to its 2x5 I/O header. The cable’s connector is composed of two rows of five 0.1" spaced pins; it’s also polarized, as is the mating connector on-board the Bus Pirate, so you can only connect the cable in one direction.
The sensor has a 3-pin header which connects directly to the RedBot Mainboard via female to female jumper wires. Use the included RedBot library to detect lines or objects. A mounting hole lets you easily connect one or more of these to the front or back of your robot chassis.
The Bus Pirate v3.6a, created by Ian Lesnet, is a troubleshooting tool that communicates between a PC and any embedded device over 1-wire, 2-wire, 3-wire, UART, I
Note: This product is a collaboration and a portion of each sale goes toward the designer for product support and continued development.
This is the SparkFun Solderable Breadboard. A bare PCB that is the exact size as our regular breadboard with the same connections to pins and power rails. This board is especially useful for preserving a prototype or experiment you just created on a solderless breadboard by soldering all the pieces in place.
