If you´re searching for a rocker switch with small dimensions and a great design, then you shouldn´t overlook the Marquardt 1858.
Marquardt 1858 is a miniature 2-pole switch with 10A/250VAC rating, made of immediately self-extinguishing material (UL-94V0). Inspite of small dimensions it handles up to 100A inrush (capacitive) currents. Silver plated terminals provide a low resistance and a safe plugging of connectors (fastons) is ensured by double fixing of terminals in the switch housing. Ambient temperature on the terminals side can be up to 100°C, what enables to use the switch even in pent conditions of power applications. For an increased dust and water protection you can use the 203.089.011 transparent cover. The switch surface is silky matt with an abrasion-proof marking.
Small dimensions and an elegant design make the Marquardt 1858 switch suitable for applications like for example a main power switch of various devices, as well as for a control of peripherials. In the 1858 series there are available switches in various versions, in stock we keep 1858.1103 type. Detailed information will provide you the Marquardt 1858 datasheet as well as Marquardt switches overview.

I tested the bandwidth limit by an 1Vpp sine wave at 100MHz. The reference instrument was a Tektronix 500MHz oscilloscope. The display at 10MHz was identical on the two scopes. At 100MHz I measured about 0.7Vpp on the SDS1102CM, while the Tektronix still measured 1Vpp. The bandwidth limit of the SDS1102CM is really 100MHz
The memory depth is 1Mpoints/channel, as it can be seen from the CSV file header. See the spectrum measurements. The point in this test is to analyze that if I stop the acquisition than how detailed information can be seen in the signal by zooming into it.

If you have a micro-controller based application and you face the problem with insufficient memory space, the micro-drive uSD-G1 may be an ideal solution for you.
The micro-DRIVE uSD-G1 is an extremely compact high performance “Embedded Disk Drive” module that can be easily added to anymicro-controller design that requires a DOS-compatible file and data storage system.
Most micro-controllers have small and limited on-chip memory. For those applications that require large volumes of data, the uSD-G1 with the GOLDELOX-DOS chip is a simple solution in a form of a tiny ‘drop-in- module’. A simple serial interface is all that is required to take away the burden of low level design that would otherwise be required for the host controller. The micro-DRIVE module utilises common microSD memory cards of up to 2GB of capacity as its medium. A handful of straightforward commands provide direct access to the onboard memory card or storing and retrieving any size or type of data. Access to the card can be at (FAT based) file levels or at raw disk byte levels.
You can use the micro drive uSD-G1 in applications like data logging (GPS, medical, industrial, security), program storage, music files, image and video files or any type of general purpose data storage. So next time your host micro-controller application requires a file/data storage, the micro-DRIVE maybe the ideal solution. Detailed information will provide you the uSD-G1 datasheet.

Mini Thermal Receipt Printer – [via]
Add a mini printer to any microcontroller project with this very cute thermal printer. Thermal printers are also known as receipt printers, they’re what you get when you go to the ATM or grocery store. Now you can embed a little printer of your own into an enclosure. This printer is ideal for interfacing with a microcontroller, you simply need a 3.3V-5V TTL serial output from your microcontroller to print text, barcodes, bitmap graphics, even a QR code!

Very often in electronics you would need to measure temperature, not just in one spot, but simultaneously in two or more spots. And log that measurements, so that you can plot temperature change over time.
Also, differential temperature measurements could be extremely useful in some cases, especially for thermal design of electronic projects.
So, the other day I bought this UNI-T UT325 dual-channel logging thermometer for a little under $80.
