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 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!
I’ve just released my new NanoS3 boards! Don’t be fooled by it looking like a module, it’s a complete, feature packed ESP32-S3 microcontroller solution in a tiny 28x11mm package! It’s also drop in compatible with my TinyPICO Nano!
I’ve just released a new set of TinyS3, ProS3 and FeatherS3 boards with u.FL connectors instead of onboard antennas. 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!
The ESP32-S3 is Espressif’s flagship MCU, with dual cores running at 240Mhz, WiFi, BLE 5,0 and more! I have three wonderful boards available that use this new chip - My Tinys3, FeatherS3 and ProS3.
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.
