Digi-Key Electronics and Make: have launched the updated Boards Data and companion Digi-Key AR augmented actuality app obtainable in every the Apple App Retailer for iOS devices and the Google Play retailer for Android-based cell devices.

Divided into sections for microcontroller (MCU), single-board controller (SBC) and space programmable gate array (FPGA)-based boards, the knowledge helps school college students, makers {{and professional}} engineers set up the latest know-how obtainable to help ship innovation to life.

As a companion to this yr’s data, Digi-Key has included an augmented actuality app leveraging cameras, exhibits and sensors in at current’s cell devices. With over 50 boards obtainable in AR, the app is the simplest strategy to nearly work along with these essential platforms. The Digi-Key AR app is designed to work alongside aspect the knowledge or as a standalone experience.

New to this yr’s data is an article discussing the rise of the Raspberry Pi RP2040 and Espressif ESP32 all through chip shortages. RP2040 is at current supply about 500,000 fashions month-to-month at present.

One different distinctive obtainable solely from all through the app includes a video discussing in depth particulars of the boards and the selection course of by David Groom from Make:.

“We’re excited to launch the model new Boards Data contained within the Digi-Key AR app. Being able to scan the boards and get an up shut look in AR is an experience you will want to see to know,” talked about Kevin Walseth, supervisor of technical promoting and advertising and marketing at Digi-Key. “The flexibleness to rotate, zoom and see all angles of the model new boards is an outstanding visualization instrument for school college students, makers and engineers wanting to take their duties from ideation to a useful design or problem.”

“The Make: Data to Boards has been updated with detailed specs of the 79 hottest microcontrollers, single-board pc programs, and FPGAs yow will uncover. Regardless of your problem, if it needs an MCU or SBC, check our data first for in all probability essentially the most preferrred, most obtainable board to base it spherical,” talked about Groom, Make: neighborhood editor. “We moreover cowl prime traits, and go hands-on with a dozen of our favorite new and notable boards which you could possibly see come alive on the internet web page by means of the Digi-Key AR app, which moreover consists of an distinctive video the place I discuss every.”
