    This simple little Logic Level Converter will let you easily interface 5v and 3.3v devices. With this board you can step up a 3.3v signal to 5v, or down from 5 to 3.3. This is great when you need to connect 5v sensors/microcontrollers to ARM based devices like the Arduino Due or Raspberry Pi. You can even solder standard headers to this board to make it breadboard compatible. The level converter is very easy to use. The board needs to be powered from the two voltages sources (high voltage and...

    Item #: SF-BOB-11733 -

      The SN74HC165N is a neat little IC that will take an input of up to 8 parallel lines and produce a single, serial output. It’s a great way to increase the number of inputs on a microcontroller. This breakout makes it easy to prototype using the 74HC165 by breaking out all of the pins you need to standard 0.1" spaced headers. We’ve also lined up the data and power pins so that you can easily make chains of them and expand the number of outputs under your control! This chip works with a voltage...

        Description: Riding on the waves of the very popular Arduino USB board is this small prototyping shield. Originally spawned with collaboration between the folks at SFE and ITP @ NYU, the Protoshield mates with the Arduino USB board and gives the user a small soldering area, two general LEDs, access to a BlueSMiRF socket, a general pushbutton switch, and most important of all - the Arduino reset switch is brought to the top level. This comes in kit form and must be soldered together by the end...

           It's blue! It's skinny! It's the Arduino Pro! SparkFun's minimal design approach to Arduino. This is a 5V Arduino running the 16MHz bootloader (select 'Arduino Duemilanove w/ 328' within the Arduino software). The power switch was moved to the side of the board (good idea Limor!) to allow control when a shield is attached. Please note: The right-angle power switch is fragile. We're working on making the switch stronger. For now, please be gentle. Arduino Pro does not come with connectors...

                  The little brother to the 4.5" Flex Sensor, the 2.2" Flex Sensor is just as fun! This sensor's diminutive size makes it great for all sorts of small spaces. The flex sensor changes its resistance as its flexed, so you can easily create an analog signal to connect to your microcontroller. We recommend using our Voltage Divider to easily create that signal. The connector is .1"/2.5mm spaced, so it will work with standard breadboards. We recommend that you reinforce the base of the sensor when...
