ESP8266 Grove WiFi Module
UART WiFi is a serial transceiver module featuring the ubiquitous ESP8266 IoT SoC. With integrated TCP/IP protocol stack, this module lets your microcontroller interact with WiFi networks with only a few lines of code. Each ESP8266 module comes pre-programmed with an AT command set firmware, meaning you can send simple text commands to control the device. The SoC features integrated WEP, WPA/WPA2, TKIP, AES, and WAPI engines, can act as an access point with DHCP, can join existing WiFi networks and has configurable MAC and IP addresses.
MAX31855 Type K Thermocouple Amplifier
Thermocouples are very sensitive, requiring a good amplifier with a cold-compensation reference. The MAX31855K does everything for you, and can be easily interfaced with any microcontroller, even one without an analog input. This breakout board has the chip itself, a 3.3V regulator with 10uF bypass capacitors and level shifting circuitry, all assembled and tested. Comes with a 2 pin terminal block (for connecting to the thermocouple) and pin header (to plug into any breadboard or perfboard).
MMA7260 & LISY300 – 6 DOF Atomic IMU
The 6DOF Atomic is a stripped-down IMU, designed to give good performance. The unit can run as a hard-wired UART interface (0-3.3V, 115200bps), or optionally with an XBee RF module, and is powered from a single LiPo (Lithium Polymer) battery. The processor is an Atmel ATMega328 running at 10MHz with 6 dedicated 10-bit ADC channels reading the sensors. Source code for the 6DOF Atomic is freely available and compiles with the free AVR GCC compiler.
Type K Thermocouple
Thermocouples are best used for measuring temperatures that can go above 100 Degree C. This is a bare wires bead-probe which can measure air or surface temperatures. Most inexpensive thermocouples have a vinyl covering which can melt at around 200 Degree C, this one uses a fiberglass braid so it can be used in high temperature measurements such as heaters and ovens. There’s a small piece of heat shrink on the end to keep the fiberglass from fraying. If you’re using at >250 Degree C temperatures, simply remove it with a small blade.
EC3 Connector Set
These connectors are made from high-temp nylon with gold-plated spring pins or sockets molded in. The shape of this generic EC3 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.
RFID/NFC Tag – 13.56MHz
This is a basic RFID tag that functions within the MIFARE Classic 1K guidelines. You can use these for all sorts of identification and sensing applications. The tag also has 1K of data storage which can be read and written from a compatible device. Check the related products below.
Full Rotation Micro Servo Motor (1.5kg*cm)
The FS90R micro full rotation servo motor has dimensions of 23.2mm x 12.5mm x 22mm. The operating voltage for this motor ranges between 4.8 to 6V. Unlike the traditional servo motors which can only rotate around 180 degrees, this servo motor can be continuously rotated like a DC gear motors. This servo motor comes with the servo horns and related hardware components.
7 RGB WS2812 Addressable LED Circle
This WS2812 circle consists of 7 independent WS2812 5050 RGB LEDs arranged in a circular format. The WS2812 LED driver chip allows these 5050 RGB LED to be independently addressed and controlled.
12 Wire Slip Ring
With a slip ring assembly, your electronics can now twist and turn safely. Add wheel encoders, 360 degree sensors, rotating LEDs, rotors and more! We’ve seen a lot of people DIY slip ring’s out of desperation but no longer, simply pick up one of these to solve any rotation needs you have.
12V Silicon Neon LED Strip – White
This neon-like LED strip is super flexible and bendy, they feature a single-color non-addressable LED strip with a solid chunk of translucent silicone rubber as a diffuser. They look incredible, and super easy to use and are a great way to make your projects light up!
ADS1115 – 16 Bit I2C ADC Module
The ADS1115 is a 16-bit high precision, 860 samples/second analog to digital converter which interfaces though I2C. This ADC can be configured as 4 single-ended input channels or 2 differential channels. There is a programmable gain amplifier built in which can amplify up to 16 times the signal.
USB AVR Programmer
This device is a programmer for AVR-based controllers, such as our Orangutan robot controllers and the 3pi robot. The programmer emulates an STK500 on a virtual serial port, making it compatible with standard AVR programming software. Two additional features help with building and debugging projects: a TTL-level serial port for general-purpose communication and a SLO-scope for monitoring signals and voltage levels. A USB cable and ISP cable are included.
Pro Trinket LiPo Backpack
If you have a Pro Trinket you probably know it’s the perfect little size for a portable project. This LiPoly backpack makes it really easy to do! Instead of wiring 2 or 3 boards together to make a charging system, this little PCB sits on top of the Pro Trinket and allows a LiPoly/LiIon battery to plug in. When the Pro Trinket USB port is powered, the battery is recharged automatically. Unplug the USB port and the Pro Trinket will switch over to the rechargeable battery.
7 Pin (M-M) Jumper Wire
This jumper wire has a length of 450mm (18 inches) and comes with both male ends. The spacing pitch for the header is 2.54mm. This kind of flexible jumper wire is perfect for breadboard use as it fits perfectly in the breadboard.
TPA2005D1 – 1.4W Mono Audio Amplifier Module
This tiny audio amplifier is based on the Texas Instruments TPA2005D1. Its efficient class-D operation means low heat and long battery life. It can drive an 8-Ohm speaker at up to 1.4 Watts; it won t shake a stadium, but it will provide plenty of volume for your audio projects.
SparkFun Beginner Parts Kit
The SparkFun Beginner Parts Kit is a small container of parts frequently used by beginning (or even experienced) hobbyists that gives you all of the basic through-hole components you will need to get started playing with embedded projects. These are the “bubble gum” parts that we regularly use or have often seen requested in classes. Inside this kit you will find a good starter assortment of caps, ICs, regulators, diodes and good-for-blinky LEDs.
