This Monday is amazing! We have got a pretty cool collection of new products for this week. Something big is coming, let’s check it out.
Welcome the brand new Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer to Seeed Studio. The .NET Gadgeteer is an open-source toolkit for building small electronic devices using the .NET Micro Framework and Visual Studio/Visual C# Express. It’s a new way to make sophisticated devices, an open source and open hardware community project, and a creative tool with something for educators, hobbyists, inventors, and professional prototypers. The complete system is composed of a mainboard containing an embedded processor and a variety of modules which connect to the mainboard through a simple plug-and-play interface.
We’re currently carrying ten modules: Accelerometer, Barometer, Cellular Radio, Compass, Current Sensor, GPS, Gyro module, Moisture Sensor, Pulse Oxymeter, and Relay module. More modules are being designed, stay tuned!
A familiar box, isn’t it? You can now find some Adafruit products in Seeed’s store. Of course, they’re 100% original packaging and directly imported from the Adafruit. We want to share the cool things with you and delivery the interesting open hardware applications to the Chinese community.
The first batch of four products we present to you are:
We have a new PS/2 Adapter for the Grove system. This module gives your Arduino/Seeeduino board a PS/2 interface in which you can directly plug a PS/2 mouse or keyboard.
We also have a new Hall sensor. This module is able to measure the Hall Effect which is the production of a voltage difference across an electrical conductor, transverse to an electric current in the conductor and a magnetic field perpendicular to the current. Hall sensors are used for proximity switching, positioning, speed detection, and current sensing applications.
