Raspberry Pi & Maker goodies
Curated range of best of breed products.
The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit (SIK) is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the Arduino programming language. The SIK includes everything you need to complete 16 circuits that will teach you how to read sensors, display information on an LCD, drive motors, and more. You don’t need any previous programming or electronics experience to use this kit.
The SparkFun 9DoF Sensor Stick is an easy-to-use 9 Degrees of Freedom IMU. The Sensor Stick deftly utilizes the LSM9DS1 motion-sensing system-in-a-chip. It houses a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer – nine degrees of freedom (9DoF) in a single IC!
The SparkFun Continuous Rotation (CR) Servo Trigger is a small robotics board that simplifies the control of hobby RC servo motors.
The UDB5 (UAV Development Board version 5) comes populated with a dsPIC33FJ256 CPU, and the impressive MPU-6000, a MEMS 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer. The on-board Invensense gyro even has enough vibration tolerance to be used in RC heli applications.
This is a breakout board for the L3G4200D low-power three-axis angular rate sensor.
This is a breakout board for the L298N full-bridge dual motor driver; which comes in a staggered, Multiwatt package.
The SparkFun AutoDriver makes it easy to put the L6470 Stepper Driver (a.k.a “dSPIN”) to work in your project. Simply connect your motors and your SPI-capable microcontroller and get steppin'!
The TB6612FNG motor driver can control up to two DC motors at a constant current of 1.2A (3.2A peak).
The SparkFun “Time-of-Flight” Range Finder, a sensor board for the VL6180 distance sensor.
