If you've ever ordered and wire up a 9-DOF sensor, chances are you've also realized the challenge of turning the sensor data from an accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer into actual "3D space orientation"! Orientation is a hard problem to solve. The sensor fusion algorithms (..
The Adafruit AS7341 10-Channel Light / Color Sensor Breakout is a multi-channel spectrometer, which is a special type of light sensor that is able to detect not only the amount of light present but also the amounts of light within different wavelengths. This means that you can use it to detect ..
Long gone are the days of parallel ports and serial ports. Now the USB port reigns supreme! But USB is hard, and you just want to transfer your every-day serial data from a microcontroller to computer. What now? Enter the Adafruit CP2104 Friend!This is a high-quality CP2104 USB-Serial chip that ..
This breakout board may well be the last current sensing solution you every need to buy. Not only can it do the work of two multimeters, but it can do it with amazing precision and flexibility. With it you can measure high or low side DC current, the bus voltage, and have it automatically calculate ..
This absolute pressure sensor, ST LPS25HB can quickly and easily measure this air pressure, useful when you want to know about the weather (are we in a low pressure or high pressure system?) or to determine altitude, as the air thins out the higher we get above sea level. For example, at s..
Add motion and orientation sensing to your Arduino project with this affordable 6 Degree of Freedom (6-DoF) sensor with sensors from ST. The board includes an LSM6DS33, a 6-DoF IMU accelerometer + gyro. The 3-axis accelerometer, can tell you which direction is down towards the Earth (by measuri..
I2C stands for Inter-Integrated-Circuit communications, it's meant for short distances on a PCB or subassembly. But, hey, we're engineers, and we like to push the limits of technology, right? So why not try to have I2C run over a meter long cable, or even longer? Well, if you try to do that ..
Wouldn't it be cool to drive a tiny OLED display, read a color sensor, or even just flash some LEDs directly from your computer? Sure you can program an Arduino to talk to these devices and your computer, but why can't your computer just talk to those devices and sensors itself? W..
Hey, have you heard the good news? With Adafruit STEMMA boards you can easily and safely plug sensors and devices together, like this Adafruit STEMMA Speaker - Plug and Play Audio Amplifier. Like the name implies, it's got a class D audio amplifier on board, and Adafruit's favorite little 1 ..
This version of the Ultimate GPS is even MORE Ultimate, with support for more GPS-like networks such as GLONASS, for even more coverage worldwide. It uses a slightly taller module than Adafruit's classic Ultimate GPS, and uses a little more power. Otherwise its almost identical in functionality:..
Throw out all those Mini and Micro B USB cables you have in a plastic bin - the next generation of USB connectors is here with USB C!You will start to see these connectors pop up on all sorts of devices, as the industry moves from micro B or lightening to the new standard. Well, at least un..
Simple but effective - this breakout board has a CR1220 coin cell battery holder soldered on and 2.54mm/0.1" pitch breakout pins for easy connecting. Great for powering very low-current projects, or adding a battery backup circuit to a real-time-clock or similar.Comes with one fully assembl..
