Hello! My name is Seon, but most people know me as Unexpected Maker.
I’m based in Australia, and I design and manufacture my own range of microcontroller development boards, add on shields and other electronics based products that are enjoyed by hobbyists, enthusiasts and professionals around the world.
I also run a YouTube channel, and do weekly livestreams around electronics projects.
I've just released the first batch of my BLING! boards.
BLING! comes in 3 versions, all with 320x beatiful 1x1mm Adressable RGB LEDs (matrix of 40x8) on the front, and different goodies on the back!
I've just released the TinyC6 which packs the new Espressif ESP32-C6 MCU.
The ESP32-C6 is the first WiFi 6 (2.45GHz) MCU from Espressif, that also has a high and low performance RISC-V core and Zigbee + Thread support!
I’ve just launched a new Knowledge Base website to help folks find answers to questions they have about my products.
I’m adding content to it daily right now, so if there’s something you want to know, and you can’t find it there, please let me know!
All UM ESP32-S3 boards now come with an option u.FL connector instead of an onboard antenna.
This allows you to attach an external antenna for projects that need to go in cases/boxes or that need long range!
This shield includes an E5 LoRa module from Seeed, that works in the EU868 / US915 / AU915 / AS923 / KR920 / IN865 range of frequencies and is compatible with the TinyPICO, TinyS2 and TinyS3
I finally have the W.O.P.R back in stock, and it’s an updated version with an improved 3D case and DEFCON digits!
Brand new Mini Sized (34x20mm), Colourful, Bright & Animated RGB 7 Segment LED display boards. Now you have a choice in size between the Mini and the Original Neo7 Display!
Offering a super accurate, ultra low power Real time Clock (RTC) with a uSD card slot and 2x STEMMA/QT connectors (on 2 different IO pairs), this shield gives you the ultimate freedom for your data logging projects!
Reflow Master Pro is an easy to install & feature packed solder paste reflow controller that can turn any suitable toaster oven into an SMD PCB reflow oven. Reflow Master Pro ships with a WiFi interface to allow you to control a huge range of settings and easily create and manage reflow profiles.
