GPS Bricklet now available

The GPS Bricklet is now available too!

The utilized GPS module has a fast update rate of 10Hz. It is possible to read out movement-, position-, altitude and time data! On the bottom side of the Bricklet is a CR2032 coin cell holder. With the coin cell (one CR2032 coin cell is included with the GPS Bricklet), the GPS Bricklet can hold its position for several years, even if it is not connected to a Brick. This means that a new fix can always be obtained super fast (after the very first initial fix).

Voltage/Current Bricklet now available

The old Current12 and Current25 Bricklets are out of stock for a while now, we finally have a replacement available: The Voltage/Current Bricklet.

The new Voltage/Current Bricklet can measure currents of up to 20A und additionally voltages of up to 36V. Thus it is also possible to determine the power (up to 720W). Beside all of the use cases of the old Current Bricklets, the new Voltage/Current Bricklet can also be used to control a battery charge/discharge circuit.

But the highlight is still to come: The measurements are done with a resolution of 1mA, 1mV and 1mW. We were very surprised about the precision that is reachable after our calibration process:

We were able to reach absolutely identical results as compared to a high end multimeter.
