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




Whats up, everybody! It is Friday, but once more, and which means extra new merchandise. This week, we have now three new merchandise to indicate off and all of it begins with the brand new FS3000-1015 Air Velocity Sensor! That is extraordinarily just like the sensor board we launched final 12 months, however this one can detect and measure air velocities as much as round 33 miles per hour as a substitute of simply 16mph. Following that, and we truly introduced this on Wednesday, however the brand new Individual Sensor from Helpful Sensors is now out there (we’re presently out of inventory, however we’re presently 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 leap 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 concentrated round Renesas’ FS3000-1015, a surface-mount air velocity module with a spread 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, includes a digital output with 12-bit decision and includes a “stable” thermal isolation know-how and silicon carbide coating to guard it from abrasive put on and water condensation.

The Individual Sensor from Helpful Sensors Inc. features a digital camera 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 every other sensor the place energy and knowledge are supplied by 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. In case you place a again order, you may safe your spot in line for once we obtain extra inventory!

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

As a common reminder since we solely have about 10 models left: The SparkFun Constellation MicroMod Package 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 12 months, we have now opted to launch a full equipment, as a substitute! This equipment combines each MicroMod and Qwiic in a single field with a restricted version MicroMod ATP Provider Board and MultiStar (this 12 months’s April Idiot’s Day joke). No, we aren’t joking this time! Because of widespread demand, we have now 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 attached! The ATP Provider Board and MultiStar included on this equipment function a matte black PCB with a star scape design in white silk.
