We’ve got the New nEw NEW for you right here:
NEW PRODUCTS THIS WEEK
A medium-sized rechargeable battery pack for your Raspberry Pi (or Arduino, or Propeller, or anything else that uses 5V!). This pack is intended for providing a lot of power to an iPhone, cell phone, tablet, miniature/single-board computers and micro-controllers. If you want even more power, we have a 10,000mAh power pack with two USB ports that can provide up to 2A!
We’ve been looking for a display like this for a long time – it’s only 1.5″ diagonal but has a high density 220 ppi, 240×240 pixel display with full-angle viewing. It looks a lot like our 1.44″ 128×128 display, but has 4x as many pixels and looks great at any angle. We’ve seen displays of this caliber used in smartwatches and small electronic devices but they’ve always been MIPI interface. Finally, we found one that is SPI and has a friendly display driver, so it works with any and all microcontrollers or microcomputers!
Oh! Hello! If you’re here, (and we suspect you are) it’s because you want to reward yourself with the gift of handheld gaming development and coding with an AdaBox! Perhaps you are a beginner who is getting started with your AdaBox. Or maybe you just want to relive what it’s like being a beginner at game development and coding again. But most of all, you want to learn how to build and make creative, awesome games! (If, rather than learn game dev and coding, you’d like to look at pictures of cats instead, please check https://www.adafruit.com/galleries/cats-of-engineering But if we’re being honest, learning game development and coding will inevitably lead to even more efficient, creative, and high-tech cat picture viewing. It’s pretty much cats all the way down, people.)
If you’re tired of the regular-old-twisty potentiometers we carry, why not slide over and try this slide pot? Most famously used on mixers and the transporter control panel on Star Trek, these slide pots are not too long at only 45mm. Use as a voltage divider and you can visually gauge the voltage from low to high. There’s a center indentation so you know when you’re in the middle. Best of all, it comes with a knob (e.g. nubbin)!
f you’re building a Raspberry Pi project and need to send data back-and-forth, the WiFi module built into newer Pi’s should be fine for most cases.
However, WiFi does not have a long range and also requires both investment (through your ISP) and setup (routers, access points, network security schemes). If you’re deploying your project somewhere more remotely, without WiFi or a strong cellular network, like a rural area, you’ll need another option. Something that can be deployed quickly with no overhead setup and that will transmit/receive over a long distance.
If you have a Raspberry Pi LoRa project using our fancy 8-Channel LoRa HAT you want enclosed, and need something extra durable, this enclosure is absolutely perfect. It’s made from solid anodized aluminum, so it’s got nice heft while also durable.
We’ve been looking for a display like this for a long time – it’s so small only 1.3″ diagonal but has a high density 260 ppi, 240×240 pixel display with full-angle viewing. It looks a lot like our 1.44″ 128×128 display, but has 4x as many pixels and looks great at any angle. We’ve seen displays of this caliber used in smartwatches and small electronic devices but they’ve always been MIPI interface. Finally, we found one that is SPI and has a friendly display driver, so it works with any and all microcontrollers or microcomputers!
Extend and expand your Circuit Playground projects with a bolt on Perma-Proto that lets you connect solderable circuits in a sturdy and reliable fashion. This PCB looks just like a solderless breadboard but has permanently affixed M3 standoffs that act as mechanical and electrical connections. Solder to the gold-plated traces to create your custom invention!
