RS485 Shield V3 - Raspberry Pi
Our friends over at LinkSprite have made this nifty little RS485 Shield V3 for the Raspberry Pi, now you will be able to have a communication port for your field bus directly connected to your RPi! Even though the RS485 is sometimes thought as an “archaic” protocol, it will allow up to 32 devices to communicate through the same data line over a cable length of up to 4,000ft with a maximum data rate of 10Mbit/s. Those aren’t bad numbers! This shield comes pre-assembled so all you will need to do is just snap it right onto your Raspberry Pi and get programming. The RS485 Shield V3 is compatible..

SparkFun ISP Pogo Adapter
Pogo pins make life so much easier when you are trying to program without having to solder a single thing, and when you attach them to an In-system programming (ISP) adapter they become instantly better, this simple kit allows you to do just that. Introducing the ISP Pogo Adapter, a simple and easy way to adapt pogo pins to a 6-pin ISP header allowing you to program an IC still without soldering a header to do so. We’ve also included a labeled SIP header row and a 6-pin molex cable for you to be able to use your Arduino (or other single-board microcontroller) as an ISP device! This adapter..

Tiny AVR Programmer
The ATtiny45 and 85 are a couple of really cool little MCUs but did you know you can program them in Arduino? That’s right, now you can shrink your Arduino projects down to “tiny size” by moving your code straight over to these small but capable ICs. The standard method for programming the ATtiny ICs involves a breadboard, lots of jumper wires and a hardware programmer, but David Mellis over at MIT Media Lab has simplified the process by laying out this handy USB programmer. The Tiny AVR Programmer plugs directly into your USB port and provides a programming socket for the ATTiny45 and 85. J..
