Hello everyone and welcome back to another Friday New Product Post here at SparkFun Electronics! This week, we have a few new version of some of our most popular boards! The JetBot AI Kit v3.0 is here with versions with and without a Jetson Nano and a new operating image. Following that, we’ve made a few quality of life updates to our R Pro Micro board based on your feedback. We wrap up the day with a third version of the ESP32-C3 WROOM Development Board. With our introductions out of the way, let’s jump in and take a closer look!
The SparkFun JetBot AI Kit v3.0 is a robot platform powered by the Jetson Nano Developer Kit V3 by NVIDIA. This SparkFun kit is based on the open-source NVIDIA JetBot! We understand that not everyone has access to multiple 3D printers and a whole warehouse of electronics so we wanted to build a kit from ready to assemble parts to get you up and running as quickly as possible. The SparkFun JetBot AI Kit V3.0 is a great launchpad for creating entirely new AI projects for makers, students and enthusiasts who are interested in learning AI and building fun applications. It’s straightforward to set up and use and is compatible with many popular accessories.
This version of the SparkFun JetBot AI Kit is a great launchpad for creating entirely new AI projects for makers, students and enthusiasts who already own a Jetson Nano and are looking to take the next step with their machine learning platform. Several interactive tutorials show you how to harness the power of AI to teach the SparkFun JetBot to follow objects, avoid collisions and more.
The SparkFun Pro Micro RP2040 is a low-cost, high performance board with flexible digital interfaces featuring the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s RP2040 microcontroller. Besides the good ‘ol Pro Micro footprint, the board also includes a WS2812B addressable LED, boot button, reset button, Qwiic connector, USB-C, resettable PTC fuse, and castellated pads.
The ESP32-C3 WROOM Development Board is an entry-level development board based on ESP32-C3-WROOM-02, a general-purpose module with 4MB SPI flash. This board integrates complete WiFi and Bluetooth LE functions.
