  • Crumble Starter Kit: Croc Clips, LEDs. Sparkles. USB Cable (CRMSTART)
    Crumble Controller - Basic Starter Kit

    The Crumble is a cheap, easy-to-use electronics controller. A few ‘croc’ leads and a USB cable are all you need to connect motors, LEDs and sensors and begin experimenting. No programming experience is required as the FREE software is a graphical, drag-and-drop system inspired by MIT Scratch.

    This Basic Starter Kit Comprises:
    • Crumble controller (the bit that does the magic!)
    • 2 x Sparkles (RGB colour pixels)
    • 10 x Crocodile clip leads (2 of each: Black, Red, Yellow, Green, White)
    • 5 x LEDs (Red, Yellow, Green, White, Blue) - connect directly to the A, B, C or D outputs
    • 1 x LDR (light sensor) - use Analog inputs to determine light levels
    • USB Cable
    • Battery Crumb with switch and indicator and Crumble compatible connections (Requires 3xAA batteries - not included)

    The Crumble is an easy-to-use programmable controller. It can drive 2 motors forwards and backwards at variable speeds. It has 4 IO (Input/Output) pads which allow connections to switches, LDRs, low power LEDs and so on.

    Basic Connections

    The Crumble has been designed to encourage tinkering, using ‘croc leads’ for quick and simple connections. Pads allow terminal blocks to be fitted or a direct solder connection made, while the larger 4mm holes make an easy target for conductive thread and needle.

    Crumble with croc leads

    The Crumble software runs on PC, Mac and, in the near future, Linux (including the Raspberry Pi). Inspired by MIT Scratch, programs are simply built by snapping blocks together on screen. Sending a program to the Crumble is almost instant, allowing rapid experimentation.

    The Crumble can be extended with digitally controlled full-colour LED, called Sparkles. Additionally, several expansions board (Crumbs) are also in the works.

  • Stickvise PCB Vise (PCB Vice) (STVISE)

    Are you still looking for that perfect PCB holder? The low profile PCB Stickvise might be just the thing you need!

    In performing the simple task of holding a PCB near table level, the Stickvise is great because your hands can rest directly on the table, allowing you to steady yourself with minimal effort for fine soldering and probing. The Stickvise also fits easily under a microscope and keeps PCBs consistently in focus.

    Set the width slightly smaller than the size of your work-piece, compress the spring, slide your PCB into place, and release the springs. Easy, fast, and repeatable.

    While the design is simple, it doesn't limit you and is totally hackable. The nylon jaws that come with the vise hold a PCB 5mm or so from the shaft, giving you clearance for most layouts. If you need something a little taller, there are 3D printable designs on the site for taller jaws, jaws with slots to keep cables out of the way, and even High Temperature PTFE Jaws.

    Features

    • Hold your PCB flat -- give your arms a rest! Stickvise is not up in the air, it holds your circuit board flat so you can solder with stability at table level.
    • Simple design -- No half baked features or gimmicks, Stickvise just holds a circuit board in a simple, intuitive way.
    • Hackable -- have a special application? 3D print custom jaw plates or choose from many more tested mods to make Stickvise work for your application.
    • Comes with one set of standard nylon jaws.

  • SD Card Slot for Raspberry Pi Replacement (RPISD)
    You can use these card slots to replace broken SD slots on your Raspberry Pi.

    Technique:
    • Use side-cutters to cut all the pins on the old socket
    • Use a soldering iron to remove what's left of the pins to ensure each pad is clean
    • Use a sharp knife to cut off the 2 mounting lugs on the back of the new socket
    • Plase the new socket very carefully so the front of the socket is fractionally behind the edge of the Raspberry Pi board and central between the two front solder pads (there will be a small gap to these mounting pads
    • Solder one front mounting pad and check the SD socket is still positioned correctly
    • Solder the remainder of the pins and mounting positions as shown in the photos

    The Raspberry Pi Camera Module v2 is a high quality 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor custom designed add-on board for Raspberry Pi, featuring a fixed focus lens. It's capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video.

    It attaches to Pi by way of one of the small sockets on the board upper surface and uses the dedicated CSi interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras.

    • Fixed focus lens on-board
    • 8 megapixel native resolution sensor-capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images
    • Supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video
    • Size 25mm x 23mm x 9mm
    • Weight just over 3g
    • Connects to the Raspberry Pi board via a short ribbon cable (supplied)
    • Camera v2 is supported in the latest version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi's preferred operating system

    Raspberry Pi NoIR Camera v2
    The NoIR Camera v2 is the official “night vision” camera board released by the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

    The Raspberry Pi NoIR Camera Module v2 is a high quality 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor custom designed add-on board for Raspberry Pi, featuring a fixed focus lens. It's capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video

    It attaches to Pi by way of one of the small sockets on the board upper surface and uses the dedicated CSi interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The NoIR Camera has No InfraRed (NoIR) filter on the lens which makes it perfect for doing Infrared photography and taking pictures in low light (twilight) environments.

    • Fixed focus lens on-board
    • 8 megapixel native resolution sensor-capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images
    • Supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video
    • Size 25mm x 23mm x 9mm
    • Weight just over 3g
    • Connects to the Raspberry Pi board via a short ribbon cable (supplied)
    • NoIR Camera v2 is supported in the latest version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi's preferred operating system
    NB. The Standard and NOIR cameras are identical except for the IR filter which has been removed from the NOIR version so that it works better at night. For standard daylight cameras it is best to use the IR filter to correct the colours and stop it looking all purple.
