FoxyTronics News

Posted by Nathan House, 09 September 2015
All too often in life, joy is accompanied by sadness. Three years after starting my small hobby electronics business, FoxyTronics, I've decided to shut it down. I've enjoyed building the business and inspiring people to learn about electronics and robotics, but the time has come to move on. After selling off all of my inventory, I plan to go on a road trip around the U.S.

I'll start by driving from Lynchburg Virginia to the East Coast (Virginia Beach), from there to the West Coast (location TBD), and then (maybe) up to Alaska!

Wish me luck!

-Nate

Rotary Encoder Board (KY-040)
Posted Image
This is a simple and easy to use rotary encoder that works in both directions. It is often used with Arduino projects and many guides for it can be found online

Super Heavy Duty Double Sided Tape
Posted Image
This is a 1x8" strip of super heavy duty double sided tape with a holding strength of 5 lbs.

Stomp Switch (DPDT)
Posted Image
These are durable, high quality stomp switches that are perfect for guitar pedals.

10kΩ Audio Knob Potentiometer
Posted Image

These are 10kΩ audio knob potentiometers.

100kΩ Linear Knob Potentiometer
Posted Image

These are 10kΩ audio knob potentiometers.

2-Way 2.1mm/5.5mm DC Barrel Jack Splitter
Posted Image

This is a 2-way power jack splitter that allows you to split one 2.1mm/5.5mm DC barrel jack into two. This cable makes it easy to power two separate devices from one power supply.

Prototyping board (2"x2.75")
Posted Image
These prototyping PCBs are perfect for prototyping circuits, hence their name. They are somewhat of an intermediary between solderless breadboards and making a real PCB. They are cheap and work great!

2.4GHz Wireless Transceiver
Posted Image
This board has a 2.4GHz wireless transceiver. In order to establish a communication link, you will need to buy two boards. NRF24L01+ based boards are very popular and many tutorials and libraries can be found online.

USBasp USBISP 3.3V / 5V AVR Programmer

Posted Image
This is an inexpensive AVR programmer that can program 51 different AVR parts.


4-Digit 7-Segment Display (Common Anode)

Posted Image
This is a standard 4-Digit 7-Segment Display. To simplify your interface to a 7-segment display with multiple digits, consider using an LED Display Driver.


ATMEGA8-16PU
Posted Image
The ATMEGA8-16PU is a popular ATMEL microcontroller commonly used for Arduino projects. The ATMEGA8-16PU can operate up to 16MHz, has a 10-bit ADC, 8 KB of program memory, 1 KB of data RAM, and supports SPI and USART.


DS18B20 Waterproof Temperature Probe
Posted Image
This is a waterproof temperature probe with the DS18B20 temperature sensor inside it and can be used to precisely and accurately measure temperature. This sensor can be easily integrated with Arduino by using the OneWire library. The red wire is VCC, black is GND, and yellow is data.

We also have a breakout board with theDS18B20 if you don't need a waterproof version.


MAX7219CNG LED Display Driver
Posted Image
The MAX7219CNG is a compact, serial input/output common-cathode display driver used to interface microprocessors to 7-segment numeric LED displays of up to 8 digits, bar-graph displays, or 64 individual LEDs. Included on-chip are a BCD code-B decoder, multiplex scan circuitry, segment and digit drivers, and an 8x8 static RAM that stores each digit. Only one external resistor is required to set the segment current for all LEDs.


Pro Mini
Posted Image
The Pro Mini is a great little Arduino-Compatible board. The small form factor makes it perfect for use in projects where space is a concern.

The Pro Micro is similar to the Pro Mini, but uses the ATmega32U4, which allows USB connectivity to be added on-board. The Pro Micro is considered to be the replacement for the Pro Mini, but costs slightly more.


Sharp IR Sensor (GP2Y0A02YK0F)
Posted Image
The GP2Y0A02YK0F is Sharp's top of the line IR distance sensor. It has a range of 20-150cm (~8in-5ft) and an easy to use analog output. Unlike many stores that sell this sensor, we include a cable with it!


4-Digit 7-Segment Display Board (Common Anode)
Posted Image
This is a standard 4-Digit 7-Segment Display, but on a breakout board for ease of use. The LED segments are red and are 0.36" tall. The board has current limiting resistors built-in, so no external resistors are necessary - just connect pins from your microcontroller to the board and you're ready to go!


TCS230 Color Sensor Module
Posted Image
This board uses the TCS230 sensor to detect the color of objects. The board outputs a 0-5V analog signal corresponding to the measured color and can be directly interfaced with a microcontroller.


HR202 Humidity Sensor Module
Posted Image
This module detects the humidity of the surrounding environment and outputs both analog and digital signals. The board has a potentiometer which allows the sensitivity to be adjusted.


OV7670 CMOS Camera
Posted Image
The OV7670 is a popular and inexpensive CMOS Camera. It has high sensitivity, allowing it to work well in low light environments, a low operating voltage, and a standard SCCB interface (compatible with I2C).


PIR Motion Sensor
Posted Image
This is an easy to use motion sensor. PIR sensors are used to detect motion caused by humans or pets and are great for determining whether people have entered or left a room.


5mm RGB Tri-Color LED (Common Anode)

Posted Image

This is a 5mm common anode RGB LED. An RGB LED is like a regular LED, but with three different colors (red, green, and blue) all in a single package. This makes it easy to not only change the color of an LED, but also to create intermediate colors by "blending" the three colors together.

We also added common cathode RGB LEDs.


TCRT5000 Reflective Optical Sensor
Posted Image
The TCRT5000 is a popular IR sensor that combines an IR LED and IR receiver in one easy to use package. This sensor is often used for line follower robots.


Hall effect sensor - US5881LUA
Posted Image
The US5881LUA is a hall effect sensor, which is used to detect whether a magnet is near. Hall effect sensors are often used on rotary encoders and position sensors for things like switches.


DC Barrel Breadboard Power Jack
Posted Image
This barrel power jack is extremely nice as it will fit into both PCBs and breadboards. The jack is designed for plugs that have a 2.1mm inner diameter and 5.5mm outer diameter (by far the most commonly used size for power connectors).


USB A to B Cable - 2ft
Posted Image

This is the same USB cable that comes with our Funduino UNO and Funduino Mega boards. It's about 2ft long and work great!
