2.5A USB A to Type C Cable black 1m (black USB A to C Cable 1m)

Description:

USB-C is fantastic! What makes this cable even better is that one of the features we love so much about USB-C has been replicated to the USB-A 2.0 plug! USB-C has a minor, yet genius modifications that allow them to be plugged into their ports regardless of orientation. No longer will you fight the USB "super position" where both orientations of your plug seem incorrect. A simple solution to a problem that nearly everyone has faced.

As announced Raspberry Pi 4 model B has upgraded the power input port to USB-C and you will need this cable to power it. Although it is terminated with USB-A 2.0, the power wires (VUSB and GND) have thicker gauge and we have tested it. This cable can delivers up to 2.5A to Raspberry Pi 4 model B.

Supporting USB 2.0 speeds and charging up to 2.5A, this 1 meter cable is perfect for embedded enthusiast that need the flexibility of a good cable and the wonderful feel of a reversible USB-C & USB-A connection. It is perfect if you want to boot up Raspberry Pi 4 Model B from a laptop. Not to forget to connect microcontroller development board like M5Stack.

This cable has the D /D- wires along side large-gauge VBUS/GND wires. Although it is rated for 2A, we've successfully pulled [email protected] with minimal voltage drop.

Features:

  • Standard USB-A connector
  • Reversible USB-C connector
  • USB 2.0 standard
  • 1 meter cable length

Grove Maker Soil Moisture Sensor (Capacitive) (maker soil moisture)

Description:


Maker Soil Moisture Sensor measures soil moisture by capacitive sensing, where the presence of water in the soil will increase the probe capacitance. The output of the sensor is analog output; higher moisture levels will produce lower output voltage. Being part of the Maker Seriesthe sensor is equipped with many features to further simplify digital making for beginners and experts alike.



The Maker Soil Moisture Sensor is easy to use. It only needs a power supply, if the LED indicators alone are enough for your application. Make sure that the voltage level of the power supply is within the sensor specifications. Note that the LED indicators only indicate approximate moisture levels and might fluctuate depending on the power supply, since the sensor does not have a voltage regulator on board.




Full Tutorial: Battery Powered Maker Soil Moisture Sensor


Maker Soil Moisture Sensor can also be used with microcontrollers to build more complex projects like smart gardens and self-watering systems. The analog output voltage of the sensor is used for these applications. Furthermore, the sensor also has a disable pin for power saving applications. Sending HIGH signal to the disable pin will disable the sensor.





Full Tutorial: Self Watering Pot Featuring Maker Soil Moisture Sensor


It is important to note that this sensor can only qualitatively test the humidity of the soil and cannot measure quantitatively. Which means when the humidity of the soil rises, the value of the output decreases; conversely, when the humidity decreases, the output value becomes higher.

Features:

  • Operating Voltage: 2.5V - 7.0V.

  • Output: Analog Voltage (Higher moisture = lower voltage)

  • Grove port.

  • LED indicators for dry/moist/wet soil moisture levels.

  • Soil Limit (Maximum depth of the probe)

  • Double-sided probe (More sensitive to moisture changes)

  • Capacitive sensing probe (Corrosion resistant)

  • Disable pin (Power-saving application)

 

Example Applications:

  • Soil moisture detection

  • Automatic Plant Watering System

  • Smart/IoT Gardens

  • Picade poster / assembly instructions

What's new!?

The cabinet is more compact, so it fits more neatly on your desk, but has a higher resolution 8"  or 10" display (1024x768). The display is driven by a new Pimoroni-designed and manufactured driver board, with keypad controls. It's an IPS panel, so it looks great from any viewing angle!

The all-new Picade X HAT is packed full of useful features. We've moved from more fiddly screw terminals to simple DuPont connectors that just push in, and the speaker terminals are the same easy push-fit connectors that we use on pHAT BEAT.

There's dedicated power management on-board Picade X HAT; just plug your micro-USB power supply into the HAT and it'll power your Pi through its pins. The power button connected to the HAT means that once your Pi is safely shutdown, the power will be cut completely to the Pi. A simple press of the power button will boot your Picade up again.

The new buttons in Picade are lower profile, and the new joystick has a single connector rather than the eight spade connectors on our previous Picade joystick.

A gorgeous new neon-look Picade logo on the marquee, and rainbow stripes on the console and screen-surround, evoke classic consoles, as do the assembly instructions and poster.

Building your Picade

We hope the included assembly instructions have everything you need to build your Picade, but we've also filmed a complete build video of Picade that you can watch as you build and learn some handy tips and tricks. Find it at https://youtu.be/gTgu1fUVsmw

The sections are also available separately in a playlist here.

We've also put together an online tutorial that incorporates the assembly instructions, important tips and amendments, and the videos for each section, so do check that out!

Software setup

We recommend the RetroPie operating system for your Picade. You can download it from the RetroPie website and then burn it to a micro-SD card with Etcher.

Connect a USB keyboard to your Pi, and connect to Wi-Fi in the RetroPie menu. Press F4 to exit to the terminal and then type curl https://get.pimoroni.com/picadehat | bash to run the Picade HAT installer.

Reboot your Pi, if it doesn't prompt you to. Press the "Alt" key on your keyboard and then select "Configure input" to configure your Picade's controls. You'll find that the sound and power button should both be working now too!

Notes

If your Picade display doesn't show anything when you first power it up, then it could be because the HDMI display is not being detected by the Raspberry Pi. This can happen because power isn't supplied to the USB ports on the Raspberry Pi for the first few seconds of booting. The solution is to edit the /boot/config.txt file on your RetroPie SD card, and add hdmi_force_hotplug=1 on a new line at the bottom of the file.

If you'd like to design your own artwork for your Picade, then we've made a handy PDF that has the outlines and dimensions of the marquee, screen shim, and console. You can download it from the Picade HAT GitHub repo here.
