The SparkFun ESP32 Thing Power Control Shield enables the ESP32 Thing to switch up to 5A of a DC load, providing a wide variety of options to control your next project! With a default voltage range of 5–28VDC, power can be connected to this shield in one of two ways. The first is the barrel connector, but with a maximum current rating of 2.5A (designed for light loads). The second option is on the 3-pin screw terminal, which has connections for VCC, ground and a 5V output. The supply voltage is regulated down to 5V to power the ESP32 Thing, as well as a fan to keep the board cool under heavy l..
The SparkFun gamer:bit is a fun-filled “carrier” board for the micro:bit that, when combined with the micro:bit, provides you with a fully functional game system. Designed in a similar form factor to the classic Nintendo NES controller, the gamer:bit is equipped with a four-direction “D-pad” on the left side of the board and two action buttons on the right side of the board. The two push buttons on the micro:bit in the center function as start and select.
The gamer:bit connects to the micro:bit via an edge connector in the center of the board, making setup easy. This creates a handy way to sw..
The SparkFun moto:bit is a fully loaded “carrier” board for the micro:bit that, when combined with the micro:bit, provides you with a fully functional robotics platform. The moto:bit offers a simple, beginner-friendly robotics controller capable of operating a basic robotics chassis. Onboard each moto:bit are multiple I/O pins capable of hooking up servos, sensors and other circuits. At the flip of the switch you can get your micro:bit moving!
The moto:bit connects to the micro:bit via an edge connector at the top of the board, making setup easy. This creates a handy way to swap out micro:bit..
The SparkFun weather:bit is a fully loaded “carrier” board for the micro:bit that, when combined with the micro:bit, provides you with a fully functional weather station. With the weather:bit you will have access to barometric pressure, relative humidity and temperature readings. There are also connections on this carrier board to optional sensors such as wind speed, direction, rain gauge and soil readings! The micro:bit has a lot of features and a lot of potential for weather data collection.

The Prototype is a hardware alternate reality puzzle (HARP) designed to put your puzzle solving and hardware hacking skills to the test. In other words, it's an escape room on a board. To solve the puzzle you'll need a basic set of electronics and cryptography skills – or a couple of nerdy friends. As you make your way through you'll uncover the story of a failed project and the truth about what's really going on at SparkX.
Product will never go live. Bob has pulled the BioS for these boards, feel free to use this prod..
The 1Wire-to-Qwiic Bridge allows you to communicate via I2C over very long distances. It does so by utilizing the 1Wire communication protocol, which can communicate at distances of up to about 100 meters, depending on the application. The I2C information is packetized as a 1Wire packet, sent over the 1Wire bus to the DS28E17 Bridge, and translated to I2C for any slave device connected to the Bridge. Communication happens bi-directionally. Please note that the DS28E17 is a 1Wire IN/ I2C OUT device, meaning the master device needs to be connected to a 1Wire bus to communcate with the bridge.
This accelerometer board will allow your .NET Gadgeteer project to measure the force of acceleration. That’s actually a pretty neat trick, since it can be used to detect static forces, like the constant force of gravity, or dynamic forces caused by moving or vibrating the device.
Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer is an open-source toolkit for building small electronic devices using the .NET Micro Framework and Visual Studio/Visual C# Express. This module is designed to quickly and easily integrate into any .NET Gadgeteer project.
Dimensions: 17mm x 32mm
Did you lose some of your Gadgeteer cables? Or maybe you just built your own super awesome Gadgeteer module or breakout and need a cable to hook it up. Never fear, we sell them by the 10-pack! That’s right, 10 of these wonderful 10cm long .NET Gadgeteer compatible cables so you’ll always have enough on hand...
The GeoFence is designed to make it easy for you to add geofencing capabilities to your next project! If you’re not familiar with the idea of a geofence, no worries, it’s exactly what it sounds like:
…a virtual geographic boundary, defined by GPS or RFID technology, that enables software to trigger a response when a mobile device enters or leaves a particular area…
These are perfect for applications like fleet or asset management as well as puzzle games like Mikal Hart’s Reverse Geocache™ or our own Robert Cowan’s NCWP Scavenger Box.
Using the GeoFence app, simply click and drag zones on a ..
The RedBoard Edge is a remix of the SparkFun RedBoard designed to be panel mounted in your custom project enclosure. It has all of the features that the standard RedBoard has – plus a few extras – but the layout’s been shifted around so that everything is accessible from the edge of the board. Along one side is everything “user facing” – the power and reset buttons, status LEDs, barrel jack, and USB connector. Along the other side is everything “project facing” – the GPIO headers, Qwiic connectors and power headers.
The GPIO is organized into three groups by capability – PWM, SPI, and ADC – a..
These headers are made to work with the SparkFun ESP32 Thing and ESP32 Power Control Shield boards. Each set of headers makes your ESP32 Thing easily stackable with the Power Control Shield or other applications. This set includes two 1x20 headers, enough to connect your ESP32 to anything you want!
