New stuff @ Spark Fun Electronics

It’s the end of a long week, time to blow the paycheck on the new stuff from Spark Fun (darn you guys!)… They have a few new items, here are a couple that caught my eye…

Critter Board with Media (The critter board is a hardware platform for creating self-contained electronic music devices) – The critter board is based on a single ARM7TDMI microcontroller, the Philips LPC2138. It is a powerful 32 bit processor with a good amount of flash (program) memory and RAM. It is a fast controller, capable of up to 60 MIPS. It has many peripherals, including analog to digital and digital to analog converters, making it especially suitable for audio work. The LPC2138 users manual is a great source of information on the microcontroller.

20 Channel EM-406 SiRF III Receiver with Antenna – The EM-406 GPS module from USGlobalSat based on the spectacular SiRF StarIII chipset. This complete module is built upon the same technology as the ET-301, but includes on-board voltage regulation, LED status indicator, battery backed RAM, and a built-in patch antenna! 6-pin interface cable included.

    I have that GPS board – it rocks. Once you get a lock (I had to take it outside to a bridge for a second), it works great indoors and in urban canyons.
