A Spectrum of Colors – News

SparkX’s new Qwiic Visible Spectrum Emitter is now available with a 10-Way Terminal & Socket.




Hello and happy Friday, everyone! We’re back once again with another new product post here at SparkFun Electronics! This week, we have two new products to show off and we’ll start with the Qwiic Visible Spectrum Emitter, fresh from SparkX. After that, we take a look at a new 10-way Terminal & Socket for secure power sourcing! Now, let’s jump in and take a closer look at this week’s new products!

The Qwiic Visible Spectrum Emitter combines nine discrete LEDs spanning the visible spectrum from 455 to 720nm. Each LED emits light with a narrow peak wavelength, with one exception made for the phosphor-based green LED in the middle of the spectrum. We compromised on green so that all of the LEDs would be in the same luminous intensity ballpark without breaking the bank.

This is a rugged 10-way 3.5mm-pitch PCB terminal block & 3.5mm-pitch rising clamp screw socket. Ideal for robust I/O and power connections when paired together.

That’s it for this week. As always, we can’t wait to see what you make. Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn. Please be safe out there, be kind to one another! We’ll be back with more new products next week so make sure to check back then. Happy hacking!

Never miss a new product!
