Mouser expands open source lineup with DFRobot

April 05, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with DFRobot, a leading robotics and open source hardware provider. The DFRobot product line available from Mouser Electronics focuses on the Gravity Series plug-and-play toolkit and the LattePanda single-board computer.

The open source Gravity Series provides an easy-to-use platform for developing prototypes for applications ranging from smart home and robotics to industrial manufacturing and environmental monitoring. Gravity Series boards and modules offer color-coded pin headers and reversible three-pin interfaces that allow users of any skill level to easily connect, mix, and develop projects that are compatible with Arduino and other platforms.

Mouser stocks a wide variety of Gravity sensor and physical modules, including light, temperature, and gas sensors; an infrared (IR) receiver; a line-tracking sensor; and an analog flame sensor. To connect multiple sensors to an Arduino board, users can attach the IO Expansion Shield to the headers of an Arduino UNO R3 (or compatible) board. LattePanda is a single-board computer that combines Windows 10 with an Arduino-compatible co-processor for physical computing. The board is based on the quad-core Intel Atom™ Z8350 processor running up to 1.92 GHz and also supports both Linux and Android. LattePanda allows developers to run tools such as Visual Studio, NodeJS, Java, and Processing, and provides APIs for developing software and hardware projects in C#, JavaScript, Ruby and more.
