Adafruit TB6612 1.2A DC/Stepper Motor Driver Breakout Board (Adaf TB6612 stepper driver)
Description:

Fire four solenoids, spin two DC motors or step one bi-polar or uni-polar stepper with 1.2A per channel (3A peak) using the TB6612.

 We really like these dual H-bridges, so if you want to control motors without a shield or HAT these are easy to include on any solderless breadboard or perma-proto.

We solder on TB6612 onto a breakout board for you here, with a polarity protection FET on the motor voltage input and a pullup on the "standby" enable pin. Each breakout chip contains two full H-bridges (four half H-bridges). That means you can drive four solenoids, two DC motors bi-directionally, or one stepper motor. Just make sure they're good for 1.2 Amp or less of current, since that's the limit of this chip. They do handle a peak of 3A but that's just for a short amount of time. What we like most about this particular driver is that it comes with built in kick-back diodes internally so you dont have to worry about the inductive kick damaging your project or driver!

There's two digital inputs per H-bridge (one for each half of the bridge) as well as a PWM input per driver so you can control motor speed. Runs at 2.7V-5V logic. The motor voltage is separate from the logic voltage. Good for motor voltages from 4.5V up to 13.5V! This wont work well for 3V motors.

Comes as one assembled and tested breakout plus a small strip of header. You'll need to do some light soldering to attach the header onto the breakout PCB. Arduino, motors, and power supply not included. Check out the handy tutorial on assembly and wiring!

Specifications:

  • Current Limit: 1.2A
  • Size: 27mm x 19mm x 3mm / 1.1" x 0.7" x 0.1"
  • Weight: 1.8g



What's in the box?:

1 x TB6612 driver
1 x header strip

USB Audio Input/Output Dongle black (USB sound black IN/OUT)
Description:

This nifty little USB pig-tail adds audio input and output through USB. It's a cheap and cheerful solution for audio input to your Raspberry Pi, and the short cable design means it plays nicely with the other USB ports on a Pi.

After testing a wide range of USB audio dongles, this was the winner through being simple, low on noise and artefacts, and free from pointless buttons, bells, and whistles. The ferrite bead on the cable is a nice little extra.

Usage

In Raspbian, this device should show up in the audio control panel automagically (go to the Raspberry Pi menu, then Preferences, then Audio Device Settings, and select USB PnP Sound Device).

We recommend providing a good signal to the input, as it provides no gain/boost for passive mics.

Once you're up and running, record audio input on your Pi, in the terminal, by typing:
arecord -D plughw:1 -f cd /tmp/recording.wav

Add quality audio input output to your Raspberry Pi

Standard (55°) MLX90640 Thermal Camera Breakout (55 Thermal camera std 55)
MLX90640 Thermal Camera Breakout

How to use Picamera with Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7KPSc_Xr24&list=WL&index=2

Description:

A sophisticated, hackable, 32x24 pixel thermal camera breakout! Use it to monitor the temperature of your CPU or coffee pot, or to build your own heat-seeking night vision camera. Works with Raspberry Pi or Arduino.

It's perfect for building into projects - industrial, scientific, or just fun - and much more affordable than most thermal cameras. Our breakout makes it easy to use the camera with your Raspberry Pi or Arduino, using I2C and 3-6V supply. And it's available in two different fields of view, 55° (standard) or 110° (wide angle) depending on your preference.

The MLX90640 far-infrared camera is an array of 768 (32x24) thermal sensors that can detect temperatures from -40 to 300°C with approximately 1°C accuracy and up to 64FPS! The applications of this camera are manifold: measure the heat or heat dissipation of devices like CPUs, circuit boards, or electrical appliances; use it to identify thermal inefficiencies in your home; or use it for presence detection to identify bodies in complete darkness.

Features

  • Melexis MLX90640 far-infrared sensor array (datasheet)
  • 32x24 pixels
  • Field of view: 55°x35° or 110°x75°
  • Up to 64FPS
  • -40 to 300°C detection with approximately 1°C accuracy
  • I2C interface (address 0x33)
  • 3.3V or 5V compatible
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • Compatible with all models of Raspberry Pi, and with certain Arduino models

Kit includes

  • MLX90640 breakout
  • 1x5 male header
  • 1x5 female right-angle header

We've designed this breakout board so that you can solder on the piece of right-angle female header and pop it straight onto the bottom left 5 pins on your Raspberry Pi's GPIO header (pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9).

Software

We've written software in C that you can use to generate images and video from the MLX90640 cameras.

SparkFun also provide an example Arduino/Processing sketch for the MLX90640.

Our software does not support Raspbian Wheezy.

Depending on how hard your relay works, you might want to add a heat sink to it.

Q:During continuity testing with my multimeter why does my relay on the AC side not switch on?
A: The below info was found at http://www.crydom.com/en/tech/newsletters/solid statements - bench test an ssr.pdf

A multimeter determines impedance by injecting a small amount of voltage through it's probes into the circuit being tested. It then measures the current flowing through the probes and calculates resistance. Easy enough; Resistance = Voltage / Current! However, as we just discussed above, a solid state relay’s output turns on by “stealing” a bit of voltage from the AC mains in order to supply current to the gate of the SCRs. Simply put, if the AC mains is not connected to the relay then the output cannot turn on. Since the voltage and current produced by a multimeter is not sufficient enough to turn on the SCRs, the output of a solid state relay will remain in the off state; even with the input signal applied. As a result, SSRs will sometimes fail an incoming inspection because the engineer expects to see a significant change in the output impedance when they turn on the relay.The most effective way to bench test a solid state relay is to construct a simple test circuit consisting of a DC power supply or battery (a 9Vdc battery will work fine in most cases ) and a 60W or 100W light bulb.
