SparkFun Thing Plus – ESP32 WROOM

SparkFun Item: WRL-15663

The SparkFun ESP32 Thing Plus is the next step to get started with Espressif IoT ideations while still enjoying all the amenities of the original ESP32 Thing. Espressif’s ESP32 WROOM is a powerful WiFi and Bluetooth MCU module that targets a wide variety of applications. At the core of this module is the ESP32-D0WDQ6 chip which is designed to be both scalable and adaptive. To make the Thing Plus even easier to use, we’ve moved a few pins around to make the board Feather compatible and it utilizes our handy Qwiic Connect System which means no soldering or shields are required to connect it to the rest of your system.

Pololu DRV8834 Low-Voltage Stepper Motor Driver Carrier

Pololu Item: 2134

This is a breakout board for TI’s DRV8834 microstepping bipolar stepper motor driver. It has a pinout and interface that are nearly identical to those of our A4988 carriers, so it can be used as a drop-in replacement for those boards in many applications. The DRV8834 operates from 2.5–10.8 V, allowing stepper motors to be powered with voltages that are too low for other drivers, and can deliver up to approximately 1.5 A per phase continuously without a heat sink or forced air flow (up to 2 A peak). It features adjustable current limiting, overcurrent and overtemperature protection, and six microstep resolutions (down to 1/32-step). This board ships with 0.1in male header pins included but not soldered in.

Pololu Stepper Motor Bipolar, 200 Steps/Rev, 2.8V, 1.7 A/Phase

This hybrid bipolar stepping motor has a 1.8° step angle (200 steps/revolution). Each phase draws 1.7 A at 2.8 V, allowing for a holding torque of 3.7 kg-cm. The motor has four color-coded wires terminated with bare leads: black and green connect to one coil; red and blue connect to the other.

SparkFun XBee Explorer Regulated

SparkFun Item: WRL-11373

The SparkFun XBee Explorer Regulated takes care of the 3.3V regulation, signal conditioning, and basic activity indicators. It translates the 5V serial signals to 3.3V so that you can connect a 5V (down to 3.3V) system to any XBee module. The board was conveniently designed to mate directly with the SparkFun Arduino Pro series of boards for wireless bootloading and USB based configuration.

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.
