Meet the RGBW LED Controller. It is a LED controller that features an embedded ATmega328 with an Arduino bootloader for easy programming, 4 channel LED control with dimming, 5 or 12 volt output, IR receiver, XBee header, RS-232 or TTL serial I/O, 2 push buttons, 12 pin extensions for all unused pins (6 analog and 6 digital), power and channel LED indicators, and dual power input options. You can control 5 or 12 volt LED’s via serial with adjustments to the level of any channel with ramping to the desired level, rate of ramping, color cycle start and stop, rate of color cycle, length of stay on each color during cycle. Fans and motors can also be driven with ease. Be sure and also visit the complete assembly tutorial ! Power supplies , RGB and white LED strips , and XBee’s and XBee adapters are available at Adafruit !

Yes, this is an adorable small television! The visible display measures only 3.5" (8.9cm) diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board. The display is very easy to use - simply connect 6-15VDC to the red (+) and black (-) wires, then connect a composite video source to the RCA connectors. Voila, a television display!
A Compact Arduino GPS/NMEA Parser Note: TinyGPS 12 is now available. TinyGPS 12 provides several new features:
Component Organizer (or CO for short) is a small, cross-platform and very easy to use application targeted at all those people who have electronics as (at least) an hobby. It’s main purpose is to avoid to google for the same datasheet hundreds of times or “hey I know I already downloaded that datasheet but I can’t find it now on my computer”, so you spend less time gathering information and have more time to look at the hardware. With Component Organizer you can easily search and manage your datasheets and application notes. You can as well manage your component’s stock and be alerted when it’s on low stock or without stock. A component can be an amplifier, a microcontroller, but also a development board, a compiler… All those things that have an heavy document describing it’s features and/or how it works. It doesn’t require installation and so it’s very portable.
Welcome back! It’s been another week and we have several new products to talk about. So let’s jump right in and see what we’ve got. Vimeo version can be found here If you need a powerful microcontroller in a small package, be sure to check out the new Teensy boards. We’re now carrying the Teensy!
