Friday Product Post: That's a SIK Arduino Kit!

Welcome to the first new products of November - we hope you had a very fun and frightful Halloween yesterday! We have five new products to show you, and it all starts with the SIK for Arduino Uno v4.1! Like the v4.0 version, this SparkFun Inventor's Kit is smaller and lighter, making it perfect for international shipping. We also have three new heatsink enclosures that are sure to keep your Raspberry Pi 4 as cool as it needs to be under high stress operations. Rounding out the week we have a new Fan SHIM from Pimoroni that should help keep your RPi4 cool if you can't use a case. Let's jump in and see what we have!

Nothing is more fun than v4.1!

KIT-15631
$109.95

The SparkFun Inventor's Kit (SIK) for Arduino Uno is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the Arduino programming language. The SIK includes everything you need to complete five overarching projects consisting of 16 interconnected circuits that teach everything from blinking an LED to reading sensors. The culminating project is your very own autonomous robot! No previous programming or electronics experience is required to use this kit.

This version of the SIK replaces the SparkFun RedBoard Qwiic with the Arduino Uno (SMD version) and comes without the SIK guidebook and carrying case. With these components swapped and removed, we were able to reduce the overall size and weight of the kit, making shipping cheaper and easier for anyone ordering internationally.

Why use a heatsink and case when you can use a heatsink case?! These sleek, anodised aluminium cases for the Raspberry Pi 4 will give you 10-15°C of passive cooling under a full CPU load. Three color options are available as well: black, gold, and gunmetal! These are great for situations where you want completely silent cooling, like home media centers.


Pimoroni Fan SHIM for Raspberry Pi

Make your Raspberry Pi 4 seriously cool with the Fan SHIM from Pimoroni! This 30mm no-solder, controllable CPU fan with RGB LED and tactile switch will give your Raspberry Pi significantly better thermal performance, and it's whisper-quiet too! The Fan SHIM uses a friction-fit header, so it just slips onto your Pi's pins and it's ready to go, no soldering required!


That's it for this week! As always, we can't wait to see what you make! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to see what projects you’ve made!

TE Connectivity Announced Ultra Small Spring Fingers

TE Connectivity (TE)’snew ultra small spring fingers have one of the smallest footprints in the market to save valuable PCB space, allowing for use in a broad range of applications with space constraints across various industries.TE’s ultra small spring fingerscan save valuable PCB space with one of the smallest footprints in the market. Closed-loop contact design ensures reliable connection to the PCB, better normal force and higher current capacity (1.5A). Robust side wall minimizes over- compression. Special anti-lifting design can improve assembly e ciency by locking the tip of the contact within the sidewall of the spring  nger, which helps prevent the contact from getting caught on an operator’s glove during assembly. Pick-and-place area supports auto-assembly processes. It also offered in different heights and styles.As an authorized distributor for TE Connectivity, Heilind Asia provides TE’s products and also value added services.
