SparkFun Car Diagnostics Kit Retail
This is the same product as the OBD-II UART. The difference is this version comes with the appropriate cable in fancy clamshell packaging and is meant for our distributors that need it. Regular customers are welcome to order, but we want to limit the amount of extra packaging finding its way into the trash heap. This board allows you to interface with your car’s OBD-II bus. It provides you a serial interface using the ELM327 command set and supports all major OBD-II standards such as CAN and JBUS. The board also provides a footprint which mates directly to our FTDI Basic or a Bluetooth Mate...

SparkFun IR Control Kit
Have you ever needed a cheap way to activate something from across the room? Infrared remotes are still the cheapest way to wirelessly control a device. We have designed the remote to be small, very simple, and low-cost. For the majority of the projects we build, we don’t need 34 buttons, we need one or two. It makes more sense to provide you with a cheap and easy to use remote. Our infrared remote control offers buttons for four directions, power, select, and three optional use buttons (labled “A,” “B,” and “C”). Unfortunately we can’t guarantee that it will work with your Stuart Hughes' Pre..

Are you a Java developer looking to add advanced hardware I/O capabilities to your Android or PC application? Well then the IOIO-OTG is for you! The IOIO-OTG (pronounced “yo-yo-O-T-G”) is a development board specially designed to do just that. It features a PIC microcontroller which acts like a bridge that connects an a..

Regular customers are welcome to order, but we want to limit the amount of extra packaging finding its way into the trash heap. Meet Mr. Roboto! He’s an Arduino-compatible development board designed to be used as a teaching tool for Arduino programming. All of the surface mount components come pre-soldered so a few minutes of simple through-hole soldering is all it takes to get him up and running. After the kit is put together, the on boar..

Piezo Drum Kit Retail
Piezo elements are a great, simple method for detecting a knock or a finger press. This kit comes with 4 of them, allowing you to turn just about any surface into a 4-piece drum kit. How’s that, you ask? When a Piezo element is struck, it generates a small voltage, if you feed that voltage into the analog-to-digital converter of your favorite microcontroller then you can use those pad strikes to set off all kinds of events from sounds to MIDI messages to lights… just about anything you can think of. The kit also includes a bag of 1MegOhm resistors. These resistors are the recommended value t..

The ScrewShield extends all pins of the Arduino out to 3.5mm pitch screw terminals. It also has a lot of the utility provided by Arduino Protoshield, including: a large prototyping space of both connected and unconnected 0.1" spaced through-holes, a couple 5V and GND busses, a reset button, general use push butt..

Serial LCD Kit - Retail
This is the same product as the Serial Enabled LCD Kit. The difference is this version comes in fancy clamshell packaging meant for our distributors that need it. Regular customers are welcome to order, but we want to limit the amount of extra packaging finding its way into the trash heap. Calling this the “Serial Enabled LCD Kit” doesn’t do justice to how cool it actually is. After you’ve assembled this all-PTH kit, you’ll be left with a fully Arduino-compatible development board that just happens to have a white on black 16x2 display built-in. Turns out the ATMega328 is pretty far over-s..

EL Wire Starter Kit
Wanna play with EL wire but don’t know where to start? This Starter Kit has everything you need to add some electroluminescent fun to your project. Simply pop the included batteries into the EL Inverter, plug the inverter into the EL wire and turn it on. Just like that you’re ready for a Tron party! …Tron is still cool, right? You can switch the inverter between solid and flashing, and even hook up an extra 3m EL wire. You can even use this to drive EL panels or strips! Note: We’ve found that while the inverter has no trouble powering two strands of EL wire, it can burn itself out if you at..
