Welcome to another edition of our New Product Roundup! Before we get started, we wanted to thank everyone who has reached out to us this past week after learning of the devastating floods in the region. Nanaimo was largely spared from any major issues – but our hearts go out to those nearby that were not so lucky. As you may have seen, the flooding has massively impacted supply chains and transportation in the region, however our shipments continue to move with just a few minor delays earlier this week.

We have added three new sensors to the Catalog this week. All three are Qwiic / Stemma QT compatible – more details below. Product of the week is our Hobby Knife Set at 25% Off. Let’s go have a closer look!
This SparkFun Qwiic Digital Temperature Sensor Breakout provides a combination of high temperature accuracy with excellent low power consumption using the AS6212 digital temperature sensor from ams AG. The sensor measures temperature data up to ±0.2°C; accuracy over a wide range (-40°C; to +125°C;) and consumes an average of 6µA in normal operation (0.1µA in standby).
The SparkFun Qwiic ToF Imager is a state of the art, 64 pixel Time-of-Flight (ToF) 4 meter ranging sensor built around the VL53L5CX from ST. This chip integrates a SPAD array, physical infrared filters, and diffractive optical elements (DOE) to achieve the best ranging performance in various ambient lighting conditions with a range of cover glass materials. Utilizing our handy Qwiic system, no soldering is required to connect it to the rest of your system. However, we still have broken out 0.1″-spaced pins in case you prefer to use a breadboard.
SparkFun Particle Sensor Breakout utilizes a photon detector to measure the amount of returning light that is reflected back from the LEDs. This is useful for various applications like particle (i.e. smoke) detection, proximity measurements, and even photoplethysmography.
