Slide Pot – Small (10k Linear Taper)

SparkFun Item: COM-11620

A simple slide potentiometer can go a long way. Rated at 10KOhm and 0.1W. Comes with solder tab connections. The pot has an overall travel of 20mm and has two mounting holes on top.

Slide Potentiometer Knob

SparkFun Item: COM-14889

This is a simple knob that connects to the small and medium sized linear slide potentiometers. Each knob uses friction to secure itself to fit onto the slide pot. Once attached, this small knob provides you with an easier to use potentiometer for your project.

A printed circuit board (PCB) mechanically supports and electrically connects electrical or electronic components.

Adafruit Item: 2078

Adafruit PowerBoost 500 Shield – Rechargeable 5V Power Shield

Compatible with Arduino Uno basically any Arduino-pinout-shaped Arduino as only the GND and 5V pins are used. You can stack shields on top, or stack the PowerBoost on top. The PowerBoost shield can run off of any Lithium Ion or Lithium Polymer battery but we suggest our 1200mAh capacity or 2000mAh capacity batteries, both of which fits very nicely in the empty space of the shield. Plug in the battery and recharge it via the microUSB jack. When you’re ready to go, just unplug the Arduino from USB or the wall adapter and it will automatically switch over to shield power. Use only Lipoly batteries with protection circuitry.

Pololu Item: 2564

5V Step-Up Voltage Regulator U1V10F5

This tiny (0.35″×0.45″) U1V10F5 switching step-up (or boost) voltage regulator efficiently generates 5 V from input voltages as low as 0.5 V. Unlike most boost regulators, the U1V10F5 automatically switches to a linear down-regulation mode when the input voltage exceeds the output. The pins have a 0.1? spacing, making this board compatible with standard solderless breadboards and perfboards.

XBee

Digi XBee is the brand name of a family of form factor compatible radio modules from Digi International. The first XBee radios were introduced under the MaxStream brand in 2005 and were based on the IEEE 802.15.4-2003 standard designed for point-to-point and star communications at over-the-air baud rates of 250 kbit/s.

Two models were initially introduced, a lower cost 1 mW XBee and the higher power 100 mW XBee-PRO. Since the initial introduction, a number of new XBee radios have been introduced and an ecosystem of wireless modules, gateways, adapters and software has evolved.

The XBee radios can all be used with the minimum number of connections — power (3.3 V), ground, data in and data out (UART), with other recommended lines being Reset and Sleep. Additionally, most XBee families have some other flow control, input/output (I/O), analog-to-digital converter (A/D) and indicator lines built in.

EEPROM

EEPROM stands for electrically erasable programmable read-only memory and is a type of non-volatile memory used in computers, integrated in microcontrollers for smart cards and remote keyless systems, and other electronic devices to store relatively small amounts of data but allowing individual bytes to be erased and reprogrammed.

Transmitter

In electronics and telecommunications a transmitter or radio transmitter is an electronic device which produces radio waves with an antenna. The transmitter itself generates a radio frequency alternating current, which is applied to the antenna. When excited by this alternating current, the antenna radiates radio waves.

Receiver

A modern communications receiver, used in two-way radio communication stations to talk with remote locations by shortwave radio.
In radio communications, a radio receiver, also known as a receiver, wireless or simply radio is an electronic device that receives radio waves and converts the information carried by them to a usable form. It is used with an antenna. The antenna intercepts radio waves (electromagnetic waves) and converts them to tiny alternating currents which are applied to the receiver, and the receiver extracts the desired information.
