mosaic-X5 & ESP32-C6 – Information


Our new mosaic-X5 Triband GNSS RTK Breakout was launched yesterday, and immediately we added the ESP32-C6 Qwiic Pocket Dev Board to the combo. There’s quite a bit occurring this Friday, so cease by and look!




Hi there everybody and welcome to a different Friday Product Submit right here at SparkFun Electronics! This week, now we have a ton of latest merchandise so that you can take a look at. In the event you stopped by yesterday, you will know precisely what considered one of them is! The SparkFun Triband GNSS RTK Breakout makes use of the mosaic-X5 module from Septentrio and accesses L1/L2/L5 bands concurrently with out writing a single line of code! Following that, our latest Growth Board is available in a brand new form-factor and is provided with the brand new ESP32-C6! The Qwiic Pocket Growth Board is able to speaking through WiFi, Bluetooth® 5 LE, and Thread and it is Matter-compliant all on a 1in. by 1in. board footprint! Following that, now we have two new energy choices, a dual-port energy provide and the brand new Raspberry Pi 5 RC battery. Lastly, we have a look at two new Raspberry Pi Important Kits which are out there for pre-order and a brand new model of our Qwiic OLED Show! Let’s leap in and take a more in-depth look!

Matches in your pocket as probably the most space-efficient SparkFun ESP32 board!

The SparkFun ESP32-C6 Qwiic Pocket Growth Board is designed to suit the 1in. x 1in.

It additionally options Septentrio’s distinctive AIM+ know-how for interference mitigation and anti-spoofing, making certain best-in-class reliability and scalable place accuracy.

The Raspberry Pi RTC Battery is a Panasonic ML-2020 Lithium Manganese Dioxide battery with a two-pin plug appropriate for connection to the battery connector on the Raspberry Pi 5 PCB. It’s geared up with a double-sided adhesive pad to connect it to the within of a case or one other handy location.

Energy banks are as a lot swag as they’re a device. However the USAMS 10AH twin port energy financial institution gives excess of your customary energy financial institution. The largest function being the digital readout of the quantity of battery life left. This helps tremendously in conditions the place 4 LEDs is just not sufficient to guage remaining battery life. The three built-in cables (C, Lightening, and Micro B) present connection choices for many fashionable units with out the necessity to carry extra cables. There is a USB A port on the aspect within the occasion you probably did want an extended cable or a connector that is not a type of three. Charging is finished by a USB C port on the aspect of the financial institution and prices at 5V 2A.

The Raspberry Pi 5 comes with some structure and energy requirement modifications. For these upgrading an present undertaking to the Raspberry Pi 5, these kits (out there in each 4GB and 8GB variations) embrace the components that you’re going to have to replace! The Pi5 is much more energy hungry, so included is the brand new 27W Sort-C PD Wall Adapter (North American Plug). In additional than only a new configuration; the brand new official case additionally features a fan, a beforehand sold-separately element. The brand new case additionally options the power to mount HATs to the Pi 5 whereas conserving it protected.
