NEW PRODUCTS THIS WEEK

Adafruit VCNL4040 Proximity and Lux Sensor – STEMMA QT: The VCNL4040 is a handy two-in-one sensor, with a proximity sensor that works from 0 to 200mm (about 7.5 inches) and light sensor with range of 0.0125 to 6553 lux.

We’ve all been there. That thing is close but how close? When you need to measure a small distance with reasonable accuracy, such as the rough height of particularly calm bumble bee, the VCNL4040 Proximity Sensor from Vishay can do that for you. If perchance you also needed to measure the amount of light at the same time, perhaps to let the bee to know if it’s time for bed, you’re in luck! The VCNL4040 can do that too (bumble bee not included, we tried putting it in the anti-static bag but it started buzzing in a threatening manner)

Coming Soon! Adafruit DS3502 I2C Digital 10K Potentiometer Breakout – STEMMA QT: If you’re a person like me that gets exhausted turning knobs all day, the DS3502 is just the ticket to calm all your knob-turning related troubles. Instead of having to turn knobs with your HANDS like an ANIMAL the DS3502 I2C Digital Potentiometer allows you to let your microcontroller adjust the resistance for you! Now you can free your hands to spin your fidget spinner or or eat a slice of pizza while you’re on the phone. Talking over an I2C bus, your Arduino, CircuitPython board, or Python powered computer can talk to the DS3502 and tell it to vary its resistance at your beck and call.

Slide Potentiometer with Plastic Knob – 35mm Long – 10KΩ: Slip slidin’ away
Slip slidin’ away
You know the nearer your resistance
The more you’re slip slidin’ away

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 so cute and short at only 35mm. Use as a voltage divider, and you can visually gauge the voltage from low to high. Comes with a grippy plastic knob!

Flexible Silicone Neon-like Skinny NeoPixel LED Strip – 96 LEDs per meter – 1m long: You love NeoPixels, and you love silicone diffusion? Peep this Flexible Silicone Neon-like Skinny NeoPixel LED Strip! OK it’s a bit of a mouthful, but check out the beautiful footage! It looks a lot like a slim strip of neon, but without the need for expensive transformers, glass tubing, inert gasses, or a Las Vegas casino license. They look incredible, are super easy to use, and are a great way to make your projects light up!

It’s flexible, skinny, and bendy – basically its one of our side-light NeoPixel strips, with a solid casing of translucent silicone rubber as a diffuser.

Small Alligator Clip to Female Jumper Wire Bundle – 6 Pieces: When working with unusual non-header-friendly surfaces, these handy cables will be your best friends! No longer will you have long, cumbersome strands of alligator clips. These compact jumper cables have a premium female header on one end and a grippy mini alligator clip on the other.

PJRC Teensy 4.0 USB Development Board: Who else could pack a 600 MHz microcontroller into such a Teensy little board? The Teensy 4.0 features an ARM Cortex-M7 processor at 600 MHz, with a NXP iMXRT1062 chip, the fastest microcontroller available today – ten times faster than the Teensy 3.2! The NXP iMXRT1062 is a ‘cross-over’ processor, which has the functionality of a microcontroller, at the speeds of a microcomputer. It’s perfect for when you need tons of flash, RAM and, to crunch lots of data, or when you need two full speed USB ports. It even has a graphics processor! All this for two sawbucks.

Teensy 4.0 can be programmed using the Arduino IDE with Teensyduino add-on.

Adafruit PyRuler – Engineer Reference Ruler with CircuitPython: The first time you soldered up a surface mount component you may have been surprised “these are really small parts!” and there’s a dozen of different names too! QFN, TDFN, SOIC, SOP, J-Lead, what do they mean and how can you tell how big they are? Now you can have a reference board at your fingertips with this snazzy PCB reference ruler.
