We are now stocking the SparkFun ESP8266 Thing and the deceptively similar SparkFun ESP8266 Thing Dev Board The SparkFun ESP8266 Thing is based on the ESP8266 WiFi SoC. It enables you to easily create WiFi enabled projects and is Arduino compatible at a very low cost. Both boards allow easy access to the ESP8266 pins and provide features like voltage regulation, power switch and indicator LED. Get started in the Internet of Things revolution! The easily programmable boards can be hooked up to c... [More]


Need your Rover 5 to do some roving?

We’ve just got the Rover 5 explorer from Dagu designed for the Rover 5 2WD chassis. Looking a bit like something you jam in a PC case this PCB has lots of stuff on board to make it really quick to get your Rover 5 doing some roving about. With space for an Arduino Uno or Mega, this board features dual 4A motor drivers, voltage regulators and plugs and spaces for servos, motor, sensor and battery connections.


New Products for April

  A bunch of new stuff has arrived! Here’s a few of the highlights. Dagu Doodle Bot The Dagu Doodle Bot is a fun little robot for beginners or as a base for something more. I’d like to see it turned into a twitter bot writing out tweets.   L298 Motor Driver Board Yet another motor driver board using the ever popular L298 chip. This one features optical isolation of the logic circuitry to avoid interference, a nice big on board voltage regulator and pluggable terminal blocks. ... [More]


New Stuff For June

We’ve got some new great new parts in this week. Mini Maestros First up are Pololu’s next venture into servo controllers. The 12 and 18 channel Mini Maestro Servo controllers let you control a *lot* of servos with high 0.25μs resolution and with speed and acceleration control. The real neat thing about these servo controllers is they can be used as general purpose IO boards that can connect all kinds of sensors and other devices to a computer via USB or a microcontroller via TTL. Plus they su... [More]


I need more pins!

New Product: 16 Channel Mux/Demux There’s just not enough IO pins to go around on this Arduino powered hairy monster ==>> A few switches, blinky lights, motor driver & wheel encoders and now they’re all used up :( Looks like a good use for our 16 channel multiplexer/demultiplexer that takes 5 pins and turns them into 16 pins. The multiplexer/demultiplexer lets 5 pins (4 digital, 1 analog) shown on the right of the board either input or output digital or analog signals... [More]
