A-Star 32U4 Micro

via Pololu - New Products

The A-Star 32U4 Micro is a tiny programmable module featuring Atmel’s ATmega32U4 microcontroller. It packs a Micro-USB interface and 15 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 8 as analog inputs) onto a board measuring only 1″ × 0.6″ and comes preloaded with an Arduino-compatible bootloader.

Brushed DC Motor: 130-Size, 3V, 17kRPM, 3.6A Stall

via Pololu - New Products

This high-power, 130-size brushed DC motor can be used as a direct replacement for lower-power 130-size motors to get more torque and speed out of your gearmotor, but it will also draw more current and typically wear out faster. It has a recommended operating voltage of 1.5 V to 6 V and is compatible with the larger Pololu plastic gearmotors. Approximate specifications at 3 V: free-run speed of 17,000 RPM, free-run current of 250 mA, stall current of 3.85 A, stall torque of 0.75 oz-in.

Pololu 12V, 500mA Step-Down Voltage Regulator D24V5F12

via Pololu - New Products

The compact (0.4″ × 0.5″) D24V5F12 synchronous buck voltage regulator takes an input voltage of up to 36 V and efficiently reduces it to 12 V while allowing for a maximum output current of 500 mA. This regulator offers typical efficiencies between 85% and 93% and has a very low dropout, so it can be used with input voltages as low as a few hundred millivolts above 12 V. The pins have a 0.1″ spacing, making this board compatible with standard solderless breadboards and perfboards.

Pololu 9V, 500mA Step-Down Voltage Regulator D24V5F9

via Pololu - New Products

The compact (0.4″ × 0.5″) D24V5F9 synchronous buck voltage regulator takes an input voltage of up to 36 V and efficiently reduces it to 9 V while allowing for a maximum output current of 500 mA. This regulator offers typical efficiencies between 85% and 93% and has a very low dropout, so it can be used with input voltages as low as a few hundred millivolts above 9 V. The pins have a 0.1″ spacing, making this board compatible with standard solderless breadboards and perfboards.

Pololu 5V, 500mA Step-Down Voltage Regulator D24V5F5

via Pololu - New Products

The compact (0.4″ × 0.5″) D24V5F5 synchronous buck voltage regulator takes an input voltage of up to 36 V and efficiently reduces it to 5 V while allowing for a maximum output current of 500 mA. This regulator offers typical efficiencies between 85% and 90% and has a very low dropout, so it can be used with input voltages as low as a few hundred millivolts above 5 V. The pins have a 0.1″ spacing, making this board compatible with standard solderless breadboards and perfboards.

Pololu 3.3V, 500mA Step-Down Voltage Regulator D24V5F3

via Pololu - New Products

The compact (0.4″ × 0.5″) D24V5F3 synchronous buck voltage regulator takes an input voltage of up to 36 V and efficiently reduces it to 3.3 V while allowing for a maximum output current of 500 mA. This regulator offers typical efficiencies between 80% and 90% and has a very low dropout, so it can be used with input voltages as low as a few hundred millivolts above 3.3 V. The pins have a 0.1″ spacing, making this board compatible with standard solderless breadboards and perfboards.

Pololu Dual VNH5019 Motor Driver Shield for Arduino

via Pololu - New Products

Get your Arduino moving! This shield makes it easy to control two high-power DC motors with your Arduino or Arduino-compatible board. Its dual robust VNH5019 motor drivers operate from 5.5 to 24 V and can deliver a continuous 12 A (30 A peak) per motor, or a continuous 24 A (60 A peak) to a single motor connected to both channels. These great drivers also offer current-sense feedback and accept ultrasonic PWM frequencies for quieter operation. The Arduino pin mappings can all be customized if the defaults are not convenient, and the motor driver control lines are broken out along the left side of the shield for general-purpose use without an Arduino.

MinIMU-9 v3 Gyro, Accelerometer, and Compass (L3GD20H and LSM303D Carrier)

via Pololu - New Products

The Pololu MinIMU-9 v3 is an inertial measurement unit (IMU) that packs an L3GD20H 3-axis gyro and an LSM303D 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis magnetometer onto a tiny 0.8″ × 0.5″ board. An I²C interface accesses nine independent rotation, acceleration, and magnetic measurements that can be used to calculate the sensor’s absolute orientation. The MinIMU-9 v3 board includes a voltage regulator and a level-shifting circuit that allows operation from 2.5 to 5.5 V, and the 0.1″ pin spacing makes it easy to use with standard solderless breadboards and 0.1″ perfboards.

AltIMU-10 v3 Gyro, Accelerometer, Compass, and Altimeter (L3GD20H, LSM303D, and LPS331AP Carrier)

via Pololu - New Products

The Pololu AltIMU-10 v3 is an inertial measurement unit (IMU) and altimeter that features the same L3GD20D gyro and LSM303D accelerometer and magnetometer as the MinIMU-9 v3, and adds an LPS331AP digital barometer. An I²C interface accesses ten independent pressure, rotation, acceleration, and magnetic measurements that can be used to calculate the sensor’s altitude and absolute orientation. The board operates from 2.5 to 5.5 V and has a 0.1″ pin spacing.
