5% accuracy 1/4 watt resistors to get you started with your BEAM experiments.
The Panasonic 1381x voltage trigger detects preset voltage levels depending on the flavor you select. These are the heart of many solar engine circuits.
This very configurable voltage monitor chip offers more flexibility than the 1381 series of detectors, at more complexity of setup.
This Hex inverter chip with Schmidt trigger inputs is often used for Microcore-style circuits.
1-of-4 decoder chip, good for twisting into motor h-bridge controllers or drivers
The 74AC240 is an octal (8-channel) inverter buffer chip, or better known as The Bicore IC.
This 74HCT240 octal (8 channel) inverter chip is more power efficient than the AC series, but can't drive as heavy loads. This makes it more suitable for solar BEAM applications.
The 74AC245 is an octal (8 channel) buffer chip that simply strengthens the current output of a signal. Great for small-motor driving!
The SGS Thompson L293D is one of the most common motor driver chips, with built-in protection from the abuse motors can create.
The SGS Thompson L298 motor driver chip is a brute of a motor driver, designed for up driving 4 amperes at 46 volts.
The LM339 is very similar to the LM324 but with open collector outputs.
A little 8 pin DIP that can be hacked into a light or line following robot known as the "Herbie".
The LM393 is a dual-comparator chip that is the heart of the popular "Sandwich bot" project in the book "Robot Building for Beginners"
Low voltage dropout regulator.
A 28 pin 8 bit microcontroller in a DIP package as used on the Sumovore Atmel Brainboard add-on.
