New stuff @ Spark Fun Electronics

New stuff @ Spark Fun Electronics

Spark Fun has a few new items of interest, if you dig on electronics…

Color 24-Bit LCD 4.3″ PSP 480×272. Looks like some SFE fans found this device before we could even get it noted on the home page! This is an original 24-bit color LCD from Sharp. Does it look familiar? It’s the same LCD that goes into the PlayStation Portable (PSP)! So snazzy – we can’t wait to get one lit up. We’ve also got the connector available for it – Link.

Ambient Light Sensor – TEMT6000. Here’s a neat little component. This is the TEMT6000 ambient light sensor. This sensor detects light levels in the surrounding environment. A simple but effective way to interact with your next project – Link.

Quad-band Cellular 9″ Antenna SMA. This is a giant 9″ quad band cellular antenna. Great for those AVL applications that need good reception in poor cell areas – Link.

    Ambient light sensor? You can use an ordinary LED as a light sensor, they generate a small voltage like a solar cell.
