Howdy and welcome to a different Friday Product Put up right here at SparkFun Electronics! This week, we’re bringing you 5 new merchandise so that you can try, and all of it begins with a brand new Factor Plus board that makes use of the Azurewave AW-CU488 and the Realtek RTL8721DM! Following that, now we have two new colour LCD boards, the RoundyPi and the Roundy Fi. These are distinctive for our LCD choices not solely as a consequence of the truth that the screens are utterly spherical, however that one is managed by the favored RP2040 IC in addition to one that’s WiFi-capable! To spherical out the week, now we have two new SparkX boards as effectively! Now, let’s bounce in and take a more in-depth take a look at this week’s new merchandise.
The SparkFun AzureWave Factor Plus is a Feather form-factor growth board geared up with the AW-CU488. The module options the Realtek RTL8721DM built-in single-chip low-power dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) wi-fi LAN. It additionally consists of a twin processor core: Actual-M300 CPU (ARMv8-M, Cortex-M33) and Actual-M200 CPU (ARMv8-M, Cortex-M23). Join the SparkFun AzureWave Factor Plus to the cloud to seize present climate circumstances in your space, publish sensor information to a server, management the lights in your subsequent dwelling automation challenge, and even calculate the Quick Fourier Remodel (FFT) of an enter audio sign!
RoundyPi is a spherical LCD show based mostly on RP2040 together with a compact and classy 1.28-inch show module of 240×240 decision, 65K RGB colours, clear and colourful displaying impact, increasing its engagement together with your challenge. RoundyPi comes with an embedded GC9A01 Driver and SPI Interface that decrease the required IO pins.
Much like the RoundyPi above, RoundyFi is a 1.28-inch spherical LCD show based mostly an ESP-12E MCU able to operating at 80 or 160MHz with built-in assist for 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. The ESP-12E is especially praised for its effectivity and ease of use. The display is a full colour show and has two interface choices: USB MicroB or the 6 pin by means of gap vias on the backside of the display (male headers included).
The SparkX Swarm MicroMod Operate Board is an adapter board which lets you add Swarm Satellite tv for pc connectivity
to your MicroMod challenge. It’s designed to be plugged into the MicroMod Fundamental Board – Single
or MicroMod Fundamental Board – Double. You possibly can then set up the Swarm M138 satellite tv for pc modem and talk utilizing our devoted
Swarm Satellite tv for pc Arduino Library. It is an ideal answer, permitting you to create a satellite-enabled MicroMod Tracker or Information Logger utilizing your favorite processor!
You is likely to be questioning why we might make an NFC/RFID tag peripheral board for smôl? The STMicroelectronics ST25FV64KC smôl board is a dynamic Close to Frequency Communication / Radio Frequency Identification tag IC with 64Kbit (8KByte) of on-board EEPROM reminiscence. It has an I2C interface which the smôl processor board can use to learn and write to the EEPROM reminiscence. However the reminiscence may also be learn and written to over the RF hyperlink whereas your smôl ecosystem is in deep sleep! This implies it’s excellent for: contactless information storage and assortment; and for configuration.
That is it for this week. As at all times, we won’t wait to see what you make. Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or tell us on Instagram, Fb or LinkedIn. Please be protected on the market, be type to at least one one other, and we’ll see you subsequent week with much more new merchandise!
