Hello, everyone! Welcome back to another exciting Friday Product Post here at SparkFun Electronics. We have a handful of new products to show off today that we think you’ll really love, starting with a new audio trigger developed with our friends at Robertsonics! The Tsunami Super WAV Trigger has been updated to include a few new quality-of-life upgrades including Qwiic compatibility, USB-C interface, and better voltage control. Following that, we have two new machine learning products from ArduCam! Now, let’s check out this awesome project showcasing the new Tsunami board.
Based on a new generation ARM Cortex M7, the Qwiic Tsunami Super WAV Trigger extends polyphony to 32 mono or 18 stereo simultaneous uncompressed 44.1kHz, 16-bit tracks. Each track can start, pause, resume, loop and stop independently, and can have its own volume setting, allowing you to create the perfect interactive mix of music, dialog and sound effects. The Qwiic Tsunami also supports true seamless looping over an arbitrary track length. Utilizing our handy Qwiic system, no soldering is required to connect it to the rest of your system. However, we still have broken out 0.1″-spaced pins in case you prefer to have full access to each pin.
The Arducam Pico4ML TinyML Dev Kit is a single board system powered by Raspberry Pi’s RP2040 microcontroller. It has the power to run all Tensorflow Lite Micro tiny machine learning examples. The board features a QVGA camera module with ultra-low power consumption and configurable 1-bit video data serial interface with video frame and line sync, and the monochrome sensor makes image processing an easy part for most machine vision applications.
The Arducam 5 MP Plus OV5642 Mini provides an easy to use camera solution for those working with low-cost microcontrollers, such as those used with Arduino and the RP2040 from Raspberry Pi. It’s a general purpose 5 MP camera module that’s SPI-enabled, reducing the complexity of controlling the camera.
That’s it for this week! As always, we can’t wait to see what you make! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to see what projects you’ve made! Please be safe out there, be kind to one another, and we’ll see you next week with even more new products!
