It’s Friday again and time for our Guess What is this Quiz

Screenshot from 2019-04-19 17-39-37

We just finished the routing of this new board, so the question is Guess what is it?

It uses Quectel EG21-G module which works anywhere in the world covering all GSM standards and frequencies. It also has GNSS build-in.

It also can connect to any network 2G-3G-4G whichever is available (sorry no 5G yet ūüėČ ).

Once the prototypes are ready and check we are preparing Crowd Supply campaign for it! Hint Fits perfect to LoRa-GATEWAY and allow connection where no wires and optics like mountain hubs, remote areas etc.

You can post here or retweet/share/boost on Twitter/Facebook/Mastodon/Diaspora and in Monday we will let Random.org to decide who will win one of our new eduArdu educational board.

Have a nice weekend!

Guess what New Product Idea we are working on now?

You can post here or retweet/share/boost on Twitter/Facebook/Mastodon/Diaspora and in Monday we will let Random.org to decide who will win one of our new ESP32-POE-ISO board!

Have a nice weekend!

 

UPDATE: After including all participants from Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Mastodon Random.org says the lucky winner is @bradfa@society.oftrolls.com

Open Source Hardware ESP32-POE-ISO is now in stock and we are very proud with the result

ESP32-POE-ISO-2

We are very proud of our new ESP32-POE-ISO and delighted to announce it’s already in stock ready for order!

What we did with this improved version of the low cost ESP32-POE power over ethernet solution for IoT?

  1. As many requested we add 3000VDC galvanic insulation. Now you can program / debug while connected to PoE switch or router;
  2. Many asked for more GPIOs so we set SD-card in 1 bit mode and this way released 3 GPIO pins for other use;
  3. We got hints that new Espressif SDK allow ultra deep sleep modes for ESP32 and we re-designed the power supply part that now the ESP32-POE-ISO has consumption down to 200 uA (130uA of which are taken from ESP32-WROOM-32D module). The rest board without the module consumes just 70uA;
  4. As per your request now battery level has option to be monitored with the ESP32 ADC;
  5. There is External power detection option, so your software will be aware when run sole on battery and when have plenty of power.
  6. The Isolated DCDC we use is 2W and provides 400mA @5V, 100mA are reserved for the battery charge (available if no battery is connected) and 100mA are provided for ESP32, which leaves up to 200mA @5V for your additional circuit.

We love to listen to our customers and we did our the best to complete most of the requests we got with this new version.

New products we got in stock

We got many new products in stock:

ANTENNA-WIFI-BT-U.FL is 2.4GHz WiFi/BLE +3dBi antenna compatible with ESP32-WROOM-32U modules.

ANTENNA-WIFI-BT-U.FL

ESP-EYE Espressif AI face detection camera supporting their AI framework is in stock

ESP-EYE

There is lot of noise around Espressif new development board with 2Mpix camera which allow to develop with their ESP-WHO AI framework. ESP-EYE was announced in january and we were waiting to be released.

Now the waiting is over! We got limited quantity from their first production run and ESP-EYE is in stock.

If you want to be among the first to play with Espressif framework for Machine Learning and AI hurry up as the quantity is limited and will not last long.

Quiz: Guess what is this?

Quiz: Guess what is this?

You can Tweet, Facebook share, Comment here or boost on Mastodon with your guess.

In Friday we will disclosure and send our Notebook to random participant.

 

UPDATE: 22-03-2019

We got a 319 responses on Twitter, Facebook, Mastodon and WordPress. Random.org selected Twitter @neycho as winner!

As many has found this is new product of Allwinner – 1GB LPDDR3 memory which can be clocked up to 667Mhz (equal to 1333Mhz DDR).

For these of you who downloaded the datasheet of this part number and it looks familiar do not wonder anymore. This actually is Micron LPDDR3 memory so the datasheet looks exactly as Micron datasheet just with Allwinner logo on it. Allwinner has bought Micron memory factory in Taiwan and this way become memory vendor too. We got these memories and will try them in our new boards.
