Yesterday, we announced the new version of the RTK Facet. Today, we take a look at some new Arduino products!
Hello again, everyone! We are so happy that you joined us this week for another Friday Product Post here at SparkFun Electronics. First off, we are going to take another look at the new version of the SparkFun RTK Facet that we announced yesterday. After that, we have three new Arduino products, including a robotic arm and two Nicla sensor boards. Now that we have introductions out of the way, let’s take a closer look at all of this week’s new products!
The Facet is back, and better than ever!
The SparkFun RTK Facet is your one-stop shop for high precision geolocation and surveying needs. For basic users, it’s incredibly easy to get up and running; for advanced users, the RTK Facet is a flexible and powerful tool. With just a few minutes of setup, the RTK Facet is one of the fastest ways to take centimeter-grade measurements. By connecting your phone to the RTK Facet over Bluetooth®, your phone can act as the radio link to provide correction data as well as receive the NMEA output from the device. This is exactly how $10,000 surveying devices have been operating for the past decade – we just made it easier, smaller, and a lot more economical.
The next evolution of the Tinkerkit Braccio robot, Arduino Braccio++ is a robotic arm designed solely for higher education – including engineering schools and university institutes of technology – or even advanced high school and college students studying the sciences, industrial science or technology.
Arduino Braccio++ is fully optimized and can be assembled in several ways for multiple tasks, such as moving objects, mounting a camera and tracking your movements, or attaching a solar panel and tracking the movement of the sun. Its possible uses are almost limitless.
The Nicla Sense ME is a tiny, low-power tool that sets a new standard for intelligent sensing solutions. With the simplicity of integration and scalability of the Arduino ecosystem, the board combines four state-of-the-art sensors from Bosch Sensortec:
- BHI260AP motion sensor system with integrated AI
- BMM150 magnetometer
- BMP390 pressure sensor
- BME688 4-in-1 gas sensor with AI and integrated high-linearity, as well as high-accuracy pressure, humidity and temperature sensors.
Nicla Vision allows you to build your next smart project. Ever wanted an automated house? Or a smart garden? Well, now it’s easy with the Arduino IoT Cloud compatible boards. It means you can connect devices, visualize data, and control and share your projects from anywhere in the world. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, we have a wide range of plans to make sure you get the features you need.
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, Facebook or LinkedIn. Please be safe out there, be kind to one another, and we’ll see you next week with even more new products!
Never miss a new product!
