Thanks to our secretive friends over at SparkX, we have a brand new campaign for the A111 Breakout Board. This incredible board was designed around the Acconeer A111, a 60GHz pulsed coherent radar (PCR) chip. Complete with an integrated antennae, and an SPI interface capable of up to 50MHz clock speeds, this board is ready to work hard.
Primarily designed for precise distance sensing, the A111 is can be used to add gesture, motion, material, and speed detection to your next project.
This breakout board for the A111 includes a 1.8V regulator, voltage-level translation between 1.8V and either 3.3V or 5V, and, of course, it breaks out all the pins of the pulsed radar sensor to both 0.1-inch and Raspberry Pi-friendly headers.
Finally, the search for a WiFi-streaming thermal camera is over. Built around the PureThermal Mini — Pro w/ FLIR Lepton, and Onion Omega 2+, the NetThermal is a tony, DIY, WiFi-enabled camera.
Developed by Percept Systems, the NetThermal is easy to assemble and extremely versatile. Whether you are using it for drones, as a home security camera, or integrating it into your next DIY project, NetThermal is ready to work.
Introducing the all new PureThermal Mini Pro, a more versatile and well, “pro” version of the smallest Lepton breakout board available. So, what did we change to make this already great board a pro?
We ditched the micro USB connector for a more robust and lower-profile Molex connector and added through-holes in case you like your cables terminated with flying leads and solder. All of these improvements were made possible thanks to the feedback we received from the awesome Lepton development community. Keep giving us your great feedback so we can keep making great Lepton boards.
Let’s talk about home security, and how our newest campaign is making it easier without a costly monthly subscription. Inspired by the original open-source HKCam created by Matt Hochgatterer that we stumbled upon via Appleinsider, our slightly upgraded version is here to keep a vigilant eye over your home.
Equipped with a 130° night vision camera, 3D-printable case, infrared lights, and a 64GB SanDisk Micro SD card, the HKCam Advanced will stand guard day and night. Using ffmpeg to access and publish the camera stream to your desired HomeKit app such as Matt Hochgatterer’s Home 3 app, you are able to access the data from almost any device.
Greenwaves Technologies is making their grand entrance on to GroupGets with the GAPDUINO Combo Kit, sporting the new groundbreaking GAP8 processor. Focusing on ultra-low power consumption, the GAP8 processor is able to run AI and IOT applications on battery power alone.
Built around the new RISC-V architecture, GAP8 is an extremely versatile processor that would be an incredible addition to anyone’s development arsenal. Check out the GAPDUINO combo kit which includes a GAP8 processor, development hardware, and an incredibly versatile SDK to start prototyping with this piece of bleeding edge technology.
