Hello all and welcome back to another Friday Product Post here at SparkFun Electronics! This week we are pleased to introduce you to our newest Thing Plus development board (there certainly have been a lot of these recently)! The SparkFun Thing Plus NINA-B306 is a Bluetooth®-compliant development board that is, in our testing, an environmental sensing powerhouse! Also releasing this week are two new Jetson Orin development kits that were announced on Tuesday. Both of these boards are available for pre-order and should hopefully begin shipping in April. Now, let’s jump in and take a closer look at this week’s new products!

With three on-board environmental sensors, this is a kitchen sink of a development platform!

The SparkFun NINA-B306 Thing Plus offers a unique combination development platform in the Thing Plus form factor featuring the NINA-B306 from u-blox, the ISM330DHCX 6DoF IMU from STMicroelectronics and the BME280 atmospheric sensor from Bosch Sensortec. The NINA-B306 is a combination Bluetooth® 5 compliant module with an Arm® Cortex®-M4 processor. The NINA-B306 features an integrated PCB antenna removing the need for any external antenna. It includes 1 MB Flash and 250kB RAM.

The NVIDIA® Jetson OrinTM Nano Developer Kit sets a new standard for creating entry-level AI-powered robots, smart drones, and intelligent cameras, and simplifies getting started with the Jetson Orin Nano series. Compact design, lots of connectors and up to 40 TOPS of AI performance make this developer kit perfect for transforming your visionary concepts into reality. With up to 80X the performance of Jetson Nano, it can run all modern AI models, including transformer and advanced robotics models.

This product is now available for pre-order.

The NVIDIA® Jetson AGX OrinTM 64GB Developer Kit makes it easy to get started with Jetson Orin. Compact size, lots of connectors, and up to 275 TOPS of AI performance make this developer kit perfect for prototyping advanced AI-powered robots and other autonomous machines. It supports multiple concurrent AI application pipelines with the NVIDIA Ampere GPU architecture, next-generation deep learning and vision accelerators, high-speed IO and fast memory bandwidth. Now you can develop solutions using your largest and most complex AI models to solve problems such as natural language understanding, 3D perception, and multi-sensor fusion.

This product is now available for pre-order.

The SPK6618H is the latest advancement in GNSS antenna technology allowing tri-band (L1/L2/L5) reception for GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou constellations. These ‘UFO’ antennas have incredible performance for the money. The antenna has a built in ground plane with significant filtering and amplification of both L1, L2, and L5 frequencies for all GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou satellites. Excellent for surveying or fixed antenna applications.

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! We’ll be back with more new products next week so make sure to check back then. Happy hacking!
