Grove to STEMMA QT / Qwiic / JST SH Cable – 100mm longAre you a maker in the midst of a STEMMA dilemma? This 100mm long cable is a fantastic chimera-cable fitted with STEMMA QT / Sparkfun Qwiic JST SH on one end, and a Grove connector on the other. This cable can be used with STEMMA or STEMMA QT / Qwiic boards to easily connect sensors and drivers from one board to the other.
SparkFun STEMMA QT / Qwiic Adapter: The SparkFun Qwiic Adapter can make any old I2C board or sensor a STEMMA QT / Qwiic-enabled one. This adapter breaks out the I2C pins from the JST SH connectors to pins that you can easily solder with your favorite I2C-enabled device. The Qwiic Adapter has two JST SH connection ports, all on the same I2C bus. Four plated through holes are broken out for SCL, SDA, 3.3V and GND. Simple? Yes, and very effective!
TinyML: Machine Learning with TensorFlow Lite – Pete Warden & Daniel Situnayake: Deep learning networks are getting smaller. Much smaller. The Google Assistant team can detect words with a model just 14 kilobytes in size—small enough to run on a microcontroller. With this practical book, you’ll enter the field of TinyML, where deep learning and embedded systems combine to make astounding things possible with tiny devices.
Pete Warden and Daniel Situnayake explain how you can train models small enough to fit into any environment. Ideal for software and hardware developers who want to build embedded systems using machine learning, this guide walks you through creating a series of TinyML projects, step-by-step. No machine learning or microcontroller experience is necessary.
RockBLOCK 9603 with USB Cable – Iridium Satellite Modem Bundle: The RockBLOCK 9603 allows you to send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky. And when we say anywhere we mean anywhere. It works far beyond the reach of WiFi and GSM networks. Maybe you want to transmit weather information from mid-ocean? Or use it to control your robot in the middle of the desert? Perhaps you need emergency communications when other networks might not be available? RockBLOCK can help you thanks to the Iridium modem that communicates with the 66 low-Earth-orbit constellation of satellites – it’s the easiest way for developers, makers, and scientists to send and receive data anywhere on Earth.
We can’t wait for spring to arrive, and we’re looking forward to caring for some plants! We designed this little add-on for micro:bit or CLUE boards – bolt it on with 5 screws to get a buzzer/beeper, motor driver, and breakouts for connecting a soil sensor (two alligator clips + nails work just fine). Simple, but effective!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
