Raspberry Pi 3 is faster, more powerful and has WiFi with BLE
The Raspberry Pi 3 has the new Broadcom BCM2837, a 1.2GHz 64-bit quad core ARM Cortex-A53 processor.
This gives the Pi 3 a 33% increase in speed and 50-60% more performance than the Pi 2. Furthermore
the Pi 3 has the BCM43143 wireless chip which gives the board WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). The
Pi 3 is compatible with the Pi 2, you can use the same software. Also the size and the placement of
the connectors are the same. The new Raspberry consumes more energy, but can still be charged with a
5V USB adapter.
This GPS module has a high sensitivity and is very affordable
The GP-20U7 by ADH Technology from Taiwan is a small, powerful, affordable and easy to
use GPS receiver with built-in antenna. The module has a tracking sensitivity of -162dBm
and a cold start of just 29 seconds. This GPS can follow 56 satellites at the same time
and is compatible with the 7th generation uBlok chipset. The interface is serial TTL 9600
bps with standard NMEA data on 1 Hz.
With this GPIB-USB controller you can easily control your measuring instrument
Antratek now represents the American company Prologix. This company is specialised in GPIB controllers. GPIB (General Purpose Interface Bus) or IEEE-488 is used in measuring instruments for control and download of measurement data. There are over 5000 instruments equipped with GPIB. For the connection
of GPIB with the computer Prologix offers a GPIB-USB and GPIB-Ethernet controller. These controllers are compatible with NI and HP (Agilent/Keysight). Because you can plug the controller onto the measuring
instruments, you don’t need a GPIB cable.
Version 3 of the ELEV-8 quadcopter can lift more than 1 kilograms
With the ELEV-8 kit from Parallax you build a quadcopter which can be controlled with a RC remote. The quadcopter flies stable because of the sensors and the Parallax Propeller multicore processor. The ELEV-8 can lift more than 1 kilograms, so it is suitable for a camera. You can fly up to 20 minutes on one battery. For the assembly you don't need to solder. The quadcopter is strong enough to survive small crashes. All parts are available separately and the ELEV-8 is simple to customize.
