New Product: 4DLCD-FT843

The 4DLCD-FT843 features a 4.3" display with resistive touch panel, and integrated FTDI FT800 Video Engine with SPI interface. The FT800 is like a "graphics card" for microcontrollers - it offloads all the work of running a display to a separate, fast and powerful controller, making it possible to have great graphics with low-cost microcontrollers.

Note: This product uses an FFC connector. You will need either a matching connector on your board, or a breakout board, in order to connect to the display.

New Product: uLCD-70DT

Intelligent 7" TFT display with 800x480px resolution and resistive touch-screen, featuring the DIABLO controller as well as a number of other features.

Stepper Motor (5V) Released


Stepper click Released

STEPPER click is a stepper motor driver board in the mikroBUS form factor. It features the A3967SLBT microstepping motor driver, with a built-in translator for easily driving bipolar steper motors in full-, half-, quarter- and eighth-step modes with output drive capability of 30V and about ±500 mA. The package includes a standard B5B-XH-A connector (delivered unsoldered) for easily connecting your stepper motor. The motor can be powered from either the 5V mikroBus line, or from an external power supply (5-30V) using the provided screw terminal connector. The board can communicate with either 3.3V or 5V systems (selection by means of SMD jumper). An LED diode serves as a power indicator.

The package includes two 1x8 and a single 2x13 female socket, as well as a 12mm distancer with two screws.

DC Motor click Released

DC MOTOR click is a DC motor driver board in the mikroBUS form factor. It features the DRV8833RTY H-Bridge motor driver, 74HC4053 multiplexer and two screw terminals. The 74HC4053 IC is incorporated into the design so that the motor can be run using only the one PWM line available on the mikroBUS socket. DC MOTOR click communicates with the target board via SELECT1, SELECT2 and nSLEEP control lines; PWM input line and nFAULT feedback line. The board is designed to use either a 3.3V or 5V power supply. It can be powered from the mikroBUS socket, or externally through the CN2 screw terminals (3-10V). It is limited to a 0.9A driving current and has a 0.22R current sense resistor. The motor is connected to the CN1 screw terminal.

For more information please see www.new-expo.co.uk/newsa/.

GSM Library Released

Our GSM Library is designed to make interacting with a GSM module reliable and easy. The base library includes functions for detecting missed calls, reading/writing the GSM modules internal RTCC (real-time calendar and clock), extracting the date/time from the GSM network, reading the modules IMEI code, and entering the SIM card pin code.
Extensions are available for adding text messaging (SMS) and/or GPRS functionality to the library.
