Antennas


Antenna GPS Embedded SMA
Embedded antenna for small, mobile applications. Basic unpackaged antenna with LNA. 5inch cable terminated with standard male SMA connector. Match it with any SMA interface cable to create a truly small GPS prototype! This unit works very well out of the box, but the fully packaged antennas have better strain relief where the SMA cable meets the antenna housing. If you plan on using this antenna in a vibration intensive application, we recommend you reinforce the connection with epoxy or Shoe Goo. Check out our GPS buying guide! Features: Gain 26dB VSWR ..

British Telecom Connector - BTA (female)
These analog (RH) British Telecom connectors are primarily used by our English friends across the pond but here at SparkFun we like to use them for Vernier sensors. These 6-pin connectors are very similar to the RJ11s we use here in North America except instead of a bottom-mounted hook lock, the BTA uses a side-mounted lock. These BTA connectors are perfect for educators or other users who need to set up a Custom Vernier analog sensor which produces a voltage that changes from high to low or vice versa.

Fuse 5mm 125VAC 5A
This is a glass ferrule type fuse. It fits great with our 5mm fuse clips. The fuse is rated for 125VAC, up to 5A. Fuses are pretty simple, if more than 5A pass through the fuse, the small filament inside the fuse heats up and breaks (like a light bulb burning out). The circuit is then broken and hopefully your circuit is saved from molten destruction. For smaller loads, you may want to checkout a PTC (aka resettable fuse) listed below. These handle less current (500mA) but can be set and reset many times without doing harm to your system. Features: 5A max @ 125VAC Glass Cartridge 5 x 20mm..

Resettable Fuse PTC
This is a handy little device that can save your system from smoking. A resettable fuse (also known as a PTC) is a resistor that has very unique properties. For this model, if your circuit tries to draw more than 250mA of current (if you have a bad short for instance) the PTC would ‘trip’ (by heating up). The increased resistance (trip state) would break the circuit and allow only a small leakage current. The leakage current may still be enough to hurt some electronics but it’s much less than the 3A that the short may have allowed. Removing the short, the PTC ‘resets’ and allows current up..

SparkFun Photon IMU Shield
This is the SparkFun Photon IMU Shield, a versatile motion-sensing add-on board for your Photon device. Each IMU shield is equipped with an on-board LSM9DS1 system-in-a-chip that houses a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer. That’s right, 9 degrees of freedom (9DOF) from a single IC! Each sensor in the LSM9DS1 supports a large variety of ranges: the accelerometer’s scale can be set to ± 2, 4, 6, 8, or 16 g, the gyroscope supports ± 245, 500, and 2000 °/s, and the magnetometer has full-scale ranges of ± 2, 4, 8, or 12 gauss. The SparkFun Photon IMU Shield comes with..

SparkFun Photon Micro OLED Shield
The SparkFun Photon Micro OLED Shield breaks out a small monochrome, blue-on-black OLED to use with your Photon module. It’s “micro”, but it still packs a punch – the OLED display is crisp, and you can fit a deceivingly large amount of graphics on there. This shield is perfect for adding graphics to your Photon, displaying diagnostic information without resorting to serial output, and teaching a little game theory. Speaking of, the screen on this breakout is only 64 pixels wide and 48 pixels tall, measuring 0.66" across. In total, the Micro OLED Shield provides access to 16 of the OLED’s pins..

Antenna GPS Chip-Scale
That is a GPS chip antenna. Itty-bitty! And we were just as surprised when it picked up just as many satellites as the larger ceramic antennas. The PDOP and VDOP (dilution of precision) of these chip antennas are greater than their ceramic siblings and the gain is not as great (to be expected), but heck, if you can get a lock with this little guy, who cares? Note: This is just a GPS antenna and is not a complete GPS module. For a complete module, check out our GPS category. Check out our GPS buying guide!

GeoHelix GPS Antenna
The GeoHelix antenna from Sarentel is a one of those really odd looking antennas. Block ceramic antennas have good gain, but really have to be facing up towards the sky to get a good signal. Helical antennas (and Sarantel seems to have the world wide patent on them) have slightly lower gain, but can get a signal in many more orientations - more like real world usage. Use this antenna if you’re not sure how the GPS unit will be oriented toward the sky. Based on the patented GeoHelix technology, the SL1204 integrates a high performance, optimized gain, low-noise amplifier with Sarantel’s secon..
