Whats up everybody, and welcome again to a different Friday Product Publish right here at SparkFun Electronics! This week, we’ve got two model new IoT boards so that you can try, the primary of which is our new USB-C model of our ESP32-WROOM Factor Plus. Because the identify implies, this board replaces the micro USB port on the board with a USB-C, it provides a microSD card slot, and it provides two new voltage regulators for higher energy use! Following that, we’ve got a brand new Arduino R3 footprint IoT RedBoard outfitted with an ESP32-WROOM as nicely! A variety of the options which are on the brand new Factor Plus this week. So, if an R3 model is extra your fashion, you have got choices. Teensy is up subsequent with 4.1 variations of the favored improvement board, simply with out Ethernet. It is a easy change as a consequence of provide constraints, however you’ll choose up these new variations of the Teensy 4.1 with or with out headers. Lastly, we wrap the week with a brand new miniature through-hole speaker. Now, let’s bounce in and take a better take a look at all of this week’s new merchandise!
USB-C, microSD, and extra!
The SparkFun ESP32 WROOM Factor Plus with USB-C is a good place to get began with Espressif IoT ideations whereas nonetheless having fun with all of the facilities of the unique ESP32 WROOM Factor Plus. Espressif’s ESP32 WROOM is a robust WiFi and Bluetooth® MCU module that targets all kinds of functions. On the core of this module is the ESP32-D0WDQ6 chip which is designed to be each scalable and adaptive. To make the Factor Plus as simple to make use of as doable, we have made the board Feather-compatible and it makes use of our useful Qwiic Join System which implies no soldering or shields are required to attach it to the remainder of your system!
Now you should use an ESP32-WROOM in an Arduino R3 footprint!
The SparkFun IoT RedBoard is an ESP32 Improvement Board that features the whole lot however the kitchen sink! Espressif’s ESP32 WROOM is a robust WiFi and Bluetooth® MCU module that targets all kinds of functions. On the core of this module is the ESP32-D0WDQ6 chip which is designed to be each scalable and adaptive. The IoT RedBoard can goal all kinds of functions, starting from low-power sensor networks to probably the most demanding duties, corresponding to voice encoding, music streaming, and MP3 decoding. The IoT ReadBoard additionally makes use of our useful Qwiic Join System which implies no soldering or shields are required to attach it to the remainder of your system!
The Teensy 4.1s (your selection of with headers or with out them) are the latest iteration of the astoundingly standard improvement platform that options an ARM Cortex-M7 processor at 600MHz, with a NXP iMXRT1062 chip, 4 instances bigger flash reminiscence than the 4.0, and two new places to optionally add extra reminiscence. The Teensy 4.1 is similar dimension and form because the Teensy 3.6 (2.4in by 0.7in), and offers higher I/O functionality, together with an SD card socket, and USB host port. Please remember that these Teensy 4.1 variations don’t have Ethernet capabilities.
Final up this week is that this small, 15mm spherical speaker that operates across the audible 2kHz vary. You should use these audio system to create easy music or person interfaces and is nice for initiatives the place you do not have room for a full-blown speaker.
That is it for this week. As all the time, we won’t wait to see what you make. Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or tell us on Instagram, Fb or LinkedIn. Please be secure on the market, be form to at least one one other, and we’ll see you subsequent week with much more new merchandise!
