The PCB Rax is an easy to use, versatile printed circuit board holder for repair, prototyping , and assembly.
How many times have you had to set your soldering iron down because you couldn’t hold the solder and component, while trying to keep the circuit board from moving around?
PCB Rax is an easy to use, versatile circuit board holder for repair, prototyping, and assembly that can hold nearly any shape of circuit board. Sure there are other circuit board holders on the market, but they don’t hold odd shaped boards, and they don’t allow you to easily move them around.

The IoT development platform that runs Python in real time, and features the perfect blend of power, friendliness and flexibility.
A small, super low power, inexpensive, and 100% Python programmable IoT development board. The WiPy takes the wireless freedom of WiFi and combines it with the power, flexibility, and ease of use of Python. We designed the WiPy from the ground up, with one goal in mind: “Let’s make IoT development fun both for beginners and professionals”.
- Inexpensive, small and breadboard friendly.
- Ultra low power (850uA with the WiFi connection active)
- 100% PYTHON PROGRAMMABLE.
- Lots of GPIOs, interfaces and peripherals.
- Powerful CPU and state of the art WiFi radio.

Always handy small but versatile power supply for everyday work with low-power electronic projects
Presenting USBminiPower – the pocket power supply powered from a standard USB port on your computer.
The adjustable power supply is an absolutely vital piece of equipment for any electronics engineer or hobbyist. However in the vast majority of cases the needs presented towards a lab power supply are quite relaxed and usually within the low voltage range. With the modern component base the current consumption is usually also very low, and in a number of cases a large and fancy (and of course expensive) lab power supply could just be an overkill purchase for many users.

Startup Percheron Electronics Ltd is looking to fund their rather neat E-Paper display HAT for the Raspberry Pi. Unlike some similar display solutions for the Pi this E-ink HAT attaches without any long ribbon cables. An advantage of this type of display (similar to those used on the Kindle) is that the image persists on the screen when power is removed so they use less power than a TFT display but the E-Paper technology does not support fast moving images.
The PCB is compliant with the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s HAT specification, including device tree configuration of the required GPIO pins by the HAT EEPROM. The board is able to drive a 2.7″ 264 x 176 pixel E-Paper display panel and is also suitable for the 1.44″ and 2″ display panels from the same manufacturer.
The board also features a DS3231 real time clock (RTC) IC with a CR1220 lithium coin cell for battery backup when the Pi is powered down. The DS3231 is accurate to 5 parts per million, or within 3 minutes per year. The RTC can generate an interrupt/alarm signal and also a 32 KHz clock signal which can be connected through to GPIO pins by solder pad links, if required.

Ohmkara is a bread-boarding ruler that helps cut, strip, and bend wires to the correct length. Ohmkara is the future of circuit design.
If you’ve done electronics prototyping, you’ve worked with a breadboard. Getting your wires or components to fit can be quite the hassle. Trying to decipher a mess like this is even more nasty. There’s no more need to buy pre-cut wires or to guesstimate while cutting jumper wires. The OHMkara tool is the one-stop protoboarding multi-tool. With your very own OHMkara multi-tool, your breadboards can look like this

The Tsunami is a powerful and flexible signal generator, analyzer, and experimenter’s kit built on the Arduino platform. by Nick Johnson @ kickstarter.com:
The Tsunami is a powerful and flexible signal generator built on the Arduino platform. It’s the best way to get started experimenting with analog signals, and a great tool for a huge variety of tasks, too.
We’ve taken the versatile processor behind the Arduino Leonardo, and combined it with a Direct Digital Synthesis chip, which makes generating analog signals incredibly straightforward. Then, we’ve added on flexible input and output circuitry, and an easy to use software library, to make working with analog signals as easy as blinking an LED.

Raspberry Pi gadget lights up when International Space Station is nearby with Live HD video from the ISS now with Wearable LEDs
The original version of the ISS-Above was funded through a successful Kickstarter nearly 1 year ago. Since then more than 800 ISS-Above’s have been installed worldwide.
At the heart of the ISS-Above is the lovable and successful single board computer called a Raspberry Pi. Over 5 million of these little computers have been sold worldwide.
The ISS-Above functionality has been drastically improved since the first Kickstarter with some truly remarkable new features – including the display of live HD video views of the earth directly from cameras on the International Space Station.
