GPIO Me Oh My

How's it going, SparkFans? We have a LOT of new products to showcase this week - so many, in fact, that we had to announce four of them on Monday! Two versions of the NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2GB are available, both with and without WiFi adapters. On top of that we also offer new versions of the DLI Kit and JetBot Kit, both with the new 2GB Jetson Nano. Two new Qwiic boards are available as well that offer new GPIO and OLED options. Last up, SparkFun now carries the 8GB version of the Raspberry Pi 4 with three unique cases and a Fan HAT. Let's jump in and take a closer look at our new products!

Unlock all the I/O with Qwiic!

SparkFun Qwiic GPIO

DEV-17047
$5.95

The Sparkfun Qwiic GPIO is an I²C device based around the TCA9534 I/O Expander IC from Texas Instruments. The board adds an additional eight IO pins, which you can read and write just like any other digital pin on your controller. The details of the I²C interface have been taken care of in an Arduino library so you can call functions similar to Arduino's pinMode and digitalWrite, allowing you to focus on your creation!

$9.95

The SparkFun Qwiic OLED Display can display up to three lines of text and features 128x32 pixels in a small, 0.91-inch (diagonal) frame. As an OLED, this display does not have a back light layer (unlike LCDs) and therefore it’s thinner, consumes less power, and has higher contrast.

Discover the power of AI and robotics with NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit. It’s small, powerful, and features a more economical price tag to lower the barrier to entry for you to get started in AI and machine learning. This means educators, students and other enthusiasts can now easily create projects with fast and efficient AI using the entire GPU-accelerated NVIDIA software stack, as well as cloud-based tools. These boards are now available for pre-order.

In the next iteration of the Model B line, Raspberry Pi has given us the very powerful Model B 4 with the goal of becoming a full desktop experience. The 8GB DDR4 RAM version of this board has the ability to run two 4k monitors at once via two micro HDMI ports, and features the long-asked-for, true Gigabit Ethernet. This creates a much higher-performing multimedia experience with the new Pi! In addition to two USB2 ports the Raspberry Pi 4 also has two USB 3 ports, making data transfers that much quicker over USB.
