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!
Good day, everybody! It is Friday, but once more, and which means extra new merchandise. This week, we’ve got three new merchandise to point out 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 an alternative of simply 16mph. Following that, and we really introduced this on Wednesday, however the brand new Individual Sensor from Helpful Sensors is now obtainable (we’re at the moment out of inventory, however we’re at the moment accepting again orders to safe your spot in line after we get them again). We spherical out the week with a brand new Stepper Motor Driver. Now, let’s soar in and take a more in-depth take 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 variety 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, encompasses a digital output with 12-bit decision and contains a “stable” thermal isolation expertise 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 data over a easy Qwiic I2C interface. It’s designed for use as an enter to a bigger system and be handled like some other sensor the place energy and knowledge are supplied by means of SparkFun’s Qwiic I2C interface. There’s additionally a separate interrupt pin, TP1, which is used to point if any individuals have been detected.
We anticipate to have extra inventory of this sensor throughout the subsequent month. If you happen to place a again order, you may safe your spot in line for after we obtain extra inventory!
The TB6612 on this board encompasses 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 could be energetic at a time, on reverse bridges), two DC motors bi-directionally, or one stepper motor. Simply be certain they’re good for 1.2 Amp or much less of present, since that is the restrict of this chip.
As a normal reminder since we solely have about 10 items left: The SparkFun Constellation MicroMod Equipment is our latest restricted version providing that joins the ranks of the SkeleBoard and the SnowBoard. As an alternative of releasing a single board this 12 months, we’ve got opted to launch a full equipment, as an alternative! This equipment combines each MicroMod and Qwiic in a single field with a restricted version MicroMod ATP Service Board and MultiStar (this 12 months’s April Idiot’s Day joke). No, we aren’t joking this time! Because of in style demand, we’ve got 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 Service Board and MultiStar included on this equipment characteristic a matte black PCB with a star scape design in white silk.
