Electrolytic decoupling capacitors 100uF/25V. These capacitors are great transient/surge suppressors. Attach one between the power and ground of your project to ensure smooth power delivery. High quality radial electrolytic capacitors.
We use these little buttons on everything! These Miniature Single Pole Single Throw switches have a good click to them and are breadboard friendly. Perfect as a tactile reset switch. These momentary buttons are rated up to 50mA.
Ever hear of a thing called RGB? Red, Green, Blue? How about an RGB LED? These 5mm units have four pins - Cathode is the longest pin. One for each color and a common cathode. Use this one LED for three status indicators or pulse width modulate all three and get mixed colors!
This is the basic L7805 voltage regulator, a three-terminal positive regulator with a 5V fixed output voltage. This fixed regulator provides a local regulation, internal current limiting, thermal shut-down control, and safe area protection for your project. Each one of these voltage regulators can output a max current of 1.5A.
Here is a very simple breadboard power supply kit that takes power from a DC wall wart and outputs a selectable 5V or 3.3V regulated voltage. The .1" headers are mounted on the bottom of the PCB for simple insertion into a breadboard. Pins labeled VCC and GND plug directly into the power lines. The lone pair of pins have no electrical connection but help support the PCB.
Single row of 40-holes, female header. Can be cut to size with a pair of wire-cutters. Standard .1" spacing. We use them extensively in our SparkFun Original boards. They mate very well with break away male headers.
This is a very large row of high quality swiss machine pin headers - break to fit. 40 male pins that can be cut to any size. Used with custom PCBs or general custom headers. Why machine pin? Machine pins are round making better contact with IC sockets and connectors.
This is a time saving kit of jumper wires - cut, stripped, and pre-bent for your prototyping pleasure. Included with this kit are 14 various lengths of 22AWG wire - 2, 5, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 22, 25, 50, 75, 100, and 125mm - 10 pieces of each.
Do you need *a lot *of space? But you need it in the size of your pinky nail? microSD (uSD) is here to save the day. TransFlash has now completed standards certification and is now known as microSD. Compatible with the SPI interface found on any SD card, this tiny form factor was created for cell phone storage and is perfect for your next MP3 project! This is a high quality push-push type SMD socket.
USB Type 'B' Female connector. The 4 connection pins have .1" spacing allowing it to be inserted into development boards and perf boards with mild modification. You can either drill two 80mil holes for the support posts, or cut them off completely.
2.4GHz ceramic chip antennas. Very small antennas that work nicely with the Nordic ICs. Don't expect these little guys to perform as well as their ~2" rubber duck counter parts, but then again, these will squeeze onto* any* PCB layout.
High quality switching 'wall wart' AC to DC 9V 650mA wall power supply manufactured specifically for Spark Fun Electronics. These are switch mode power supplies which mean the output is regulated to 9V (no more 14V outputs!) and the capable output current is much higher (650mA!).
Texas Instruments CD74HC4067 16-Channel multiplexer. What can you do with it? How about taking an analog to digital reading from 16 devices with only 1 ADC channel and 4 control pins. That's right, 16 for the price of 5! 24-Pin SSOP package. Works great with our 28-Pin SSOP to DIP adapters.
