    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...

    Price: $3.95
    Availability: In Stock
    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...

      Price: $9.95
      Availability: In Stock
      Item #: SF-BOB-10124 -

        This is a breakout board for the SP3485 RS-485 transceiver IC, which will convert a UART serial stream to RS-485. The SP3485 is a half-duplex transceiver, so it can only communicate one way at a time, but it can reach transmission speeds of up to 10Mbps. This board requires a very low amount of power and can operate from a single +3.3VDC supply. This breakout board includes the SP3485 RS-485 transceiver, filter capacitor, and other components shown on the schematic. The RS-485 output has been...

            Item #: SF-DEV-07914 -

              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...

              Item #: SF-DEV-09219 -

                 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...

                Item #: SF-DEV11113 -

                  It's blue! It's thin (0.8mm)! It's the Arduino Pro Mini! SparkFun's minimal design approach to Arduino. This is a 3.3V Arduino running the 8MHz bootloader (select 'Arduino Duemilanove w/ 328' within the Arduino software). Arduino Pro Mini does not come with connectors populated so that you can solder in any connector or wire with any orientation you need. We recommend first time Arduino users start with the Duemilanove. It's a great board that will get you up and running quickly. The Arduino...

                    The 6DOF Atomic is a stripped-down IMU, designed to give good performance at a low price. 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 ATMega168 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. The 6-DOF Atomic uses...

                      Description: The EasyDriver is a simple to use stepper motor driver, compatible with anything that can output a digital 0 to 5V pulse. EasyDriver requires a 7V to 30V supply to power the motor, and has an on board voltage regulator for the digital interface. Connect a 4-wire stepper motor and a microcontroller and you've got precision motor control! EasyDriver drives bi-polar motors, and motors wired as bi-polar. I.e. 4,6, or 8 wire stepper motors. This is the newest version of EasyDriver V4...

                      Resistive Flex Sensor 4.5 Inch
                      Price: $12.95
                      Availability: In Stock
                      Item #: SF-SEN-08606 -

                        Description: A simple flex sensor 4.5" in length. As the sensor is flexed, the resistance across the sensor increases. Patented technology by Spectra Symbol - they claim these sensors were used in the original Nintendo Power Glove. I love the Nintendo Power Glove. It's so bad! The resistance of the flex sensor changes when the metal pads are on the outside of the bend (text on inside of bend). Straight (unflexed) resistance: ~9000 Ohm 90 degree bend resistance: ~14000 Ohm 180 degree bend...

                          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...
