New Stuff!

We've been busy little elves at Solarbotics. New to our product listing is a fair number of parts and ICs that have been requested of us. Like what? Wellll...:

You always need new chips. Especially when somebody on the BEAM list has made something cool:

  • LM324 Op-amp (happy now, Bruce?)
  • LM393 Dual comparator
  • LM386 Audio op-amp
  • LM339 Quad comparator

And you can't have new chips without new chip carriers!:

  • DC8Pin - 8 pin dual inline IC carrier (for the LM386, 8212, and LM393)
  • DC16Pin - 16 pin dual inline IC carrier (for the L293D and 74AC139)
  • DC20Pin - 20 pin dual inline IC carrier (for the 74xx240 and 74xx245)

And what fun is it if you can't put your new ICs and carriers on a robot with a new motor?:

  • RM2 - High power drop-in replacement motor for the GM2/GM3 gearmotors
  • TPM2 - A new, less expensive alternate to the old TPM tiny pager motor!
  • RPM2 - The Namiki 1701 replacement; comparable performance for less money!

Ummm... That's it. For now. We now return you back to your regular programming schedule.

Back from PDXBot04

Grant and I are back from Portland. Nice damp city, that one...reminds me of where I grew up in B.C. We had a great time under the hospices of Monty Goodson and the rest of the PDXBot crew. We had a good time seeing cool new custom robots by Josh Triska (1st place Advanced Mini-Sumo […]
