New Arrivals: Grove Inventor Kit for micro:bit, SDRPlay Radio Spectrum Processor and more!

Hi everyone! This week we have some new goodies for you. Check them out and find something that interests you.

(1)  Grove Inventor Kit for micro:bit

We have introduced The micro:bit last week, which is a pocket-sized computer that can easily realize your creativity without much electrical and coding knowledge. There are numerous possibility of creation you can dig out by micro:bit, from robots to musical instruments. We are now celebrating the Grove Inventor Kit for micro:bit for you to build multiple projects.

The Grove Inventor Kit for Micro:bit brings endless possibilities to your micro:bit. The core board in this kit is the Grove shield for micro:bit, with which you can use plenty of Grove modules including sensors, display, actuator to interact with micro:bit. If you never used and have no idea what grove is, here is the introduction of Grove. All you need to know is that with Grove, there is no need of soldering or jump wires any more. Your prototyping will be easier and much more convenient.

We have already prepare 10 grove modules to let you get started with micro:bit. With these grove modules, you can measure distance and display it, use gesture to play different music, or make a smart guard for your desk or room. If you are a beginner to micro:bit, don’t worry because we have prepared 12 different project(coming soon!)  which will teach you step by step. If you are an advanced user, this kit will help you more creative project than others.

(2) SDRPlay Radio Spectrum Processor 2

The RSP2 is a powerful wideband full-featured SDR which covers all frequencies from 1 kHz up to 2 GHz. This enhanced version of the popular RSP1 provides three software selectable antenna inputs, & new stability and clocking features ideally suited to industrial, scientific & educational applications. Combined with the power of SDRuno receiver software this versatile receiver can monitor up to 10 MHz of spectrum at a time. The RSP2 is housed in an RF shielded robust plastic case.

It can used for many applications; for example, amateurs can build general coverage RX, panadapter, trunked radio, SSTV, HFFAZ and packet radio with RSP2. About industrial users, they could use RSP2 for surveillance, EMI/EMC monitoring, ADS-B, remote broadcast monitoring, RF surveying etc.

ARTIK 530 takes ARTIK 520’s combination of power and multimedia, and adds power while reducing cost. We’ve bumped the dual-core processor up to a quad core, and replaced the connector-based interface with a solder-ball pattern, saving you BOM costs as well. Although the footprint is larger, you still get amazing multimedia capabilities and connectivity options. The ARTIK 530 features a Quad core processor for local data processing and a multimedia engine to handle audio and video processing. The modules also support most of the commonly used local area wireless standards such as 802.11, Bluetooth®, ZigBee®. and Thread. In addition, we have prepared documents for you to get hands on:
