SparkFun Logic Level Converter Bi-Directional (Sparkfun logic level converter )

If you’ve ever tried to connect a 3.3V device to a 5V system, you know what a challenge it can be. The SparkFun bi-directional logic level converter is a small device that safely steps down 5V signals to 3.3V AND steps up 3.3V to 5V at the same time.

This level converter also works with 2.8V and 1.8V devices. What really separates this Logic level converter from our previous versions is that you can successfully set your high and low voltages and step up and down between them safely on the same channel. Each level converter has the capability of converting 4 pins on the high side to 4 pins on the low side with two inputs and two outputs provided for each side.

The level converter is very easy to use. The board needs to be powered from the two voltages sources (high voltage and low voltage) that your system is using. High voltage (5V for example) to the ‘HV’ pin, low voltage (3.3V for example) to ‘LV’, and ground from the system to the ‘GND’ pin.

WS Logic Level Converter green 8 channel (WS logic level convert green)

Features

  • 8 channels bidirectional voltage translation between different logic level, translate between Ax and Bx automatically
  • 4 pairs of power supply interfaces, supports more situations
  • Use tantalum capacitors for power filter, provides more stability
  • Voltage level: 1.8V-6V
  • Dimension: 31.6mm x 25.4mm

How to Use

In the case of translating between 3.3V and 5V system:

  • VCCA/VA connects to 3.3V power supply
  • VCCB/VB connects to 5V power supply
  • GND connects to power negative pole respectively, the two power supply should be common-grounded with each other
  • When Ax has TTL 3.3V input, Bx will get TTL 5V output
  • When Bx has TTL 5V input, Ax will get TTL 3.3V output
  • NO direction control required

Cambridge University Press - Coding Club Python Building Big Apps Level 3 (Python Big Apps Level 3)

Answers and full source code are on the resources page.

Books at level 3 are intended for young coders that are starting to want to build more involved applications. The first book at this level is Python: Building Big Apps. It introduces Object Oriented Programming (OOP) so that readers become familiar with classes and objects which are extensively used in game programming.

The book does not set out to teach perfect OOP but instead simply aims to introduce some of the concepts and to recommend that building classes allows students to organise their code in big projects in a logical and manageable way.

While learning more theory, readers will build a number of small projects ending with a big project - MyPong. The final chapter will show how building MyPong carefully allows us to quickly and easily build a BreakOut style game, an Invaders game and many more.

Discontinued: Automatic Electric Water Bilge Pump Switch Sensor (AW bilge pump float switch)
Description:

Our bilge pump float switch is safer than mercury switches, this switch utilizes a mercury-free rolling ball mechanism and includes an exclusive anti-spike feature to prevent the rapid on/off cycling encountered with some switches. Made of rugged thermoplastic. Universal design works with all 12V, 24V and 32V bilge pumps.

A bilge pump float switch is a smart device used in boats that turns on a bilge pump when the water in the bilge reaches a certain level. It is a must-have in any boat that is left unattended for any length of time, as all boats tend to leak at least some water. This switch is submerged, so you need to waterproof the electrical connections and hang the wires to ensure they stay as dry as possible.
 
Features:
 
1. Turn pump on when water level reaches 2 (51mm).
2. Turn pump off when water level reaches 3/4 (19mm).
3. Ideal flow sensor for bilge pumps.
4. Heavy duty flow switch is designed for the toughest applications.
