It is a good plastic box for Raspberry Pi, which can protect it with one of these snazzy plastic enclosures?. These cases protect the Raspberry Pi from things like rogue wires that might short it out while still allowing full access to the board! Simply snap the RPi into the bottom half of the enclosure, then snap the two sides together.
IR sensor tuned to 38KHz, perfect for receiving commands from a TV remote control. Runs at 5V (although it seems to be OK down to 3.3V)To use, connect pin 3 (all the way to the right) to 5V power, pin 2 (middle) to ground and listen on pin 1. It doesn’t do any decoding of the signal, just passes the ‘raw data’ along.
FT232RL breakout. The FT232RL is a USB to serial UART interface with optional clock generator output. It’s the essential tools for establishing communication between PC and mostly MCU. Especially, it’s the optimum tool for basic boards without without USB interface, like arduino pro, colorduino, etc.
