Utilizing EMG for project use, MyoWare® 2.0 features a snap-together design and more robust shield options to measure muscle activation
BOULDER, Colo., April 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SparkFun Electronics and Advancer Technologies are excited to announce the release of the MyoWare® 2.0 product line. Building upon the EMG technology of the original line, MyoWare 2.0 improves functionality by implementing a snap-together system, which allows users to easily snap their board and shields together for a quick build experience.
The MyoWare 2.0 release includes a newly designed Muscle Sensor board and five shields designed to snap together for a solder-free experience and compact project profile. The Muscle Sensor 2.0 outputs data in three modes: EMG Envelope, Raw EMG, and new for the 2.0 release - Rectified EMG.
"Our hope with the new MyoWare 2.0 ecosystem is to once again lower the barrier to entry for myoelectric technology," said Brian Kaminski, Founder/Owner of Advancer Technologies. "We've redesigned the whole ecosystem so setup is a snap, eliminating the need to solder connections, which opens up this innovative technology to a broader audience."
Two new shields designed for the 2.0 release, the MyoWare Link Shield and MyoWare Arduino Shield, work together to allow users to connect up to six Muscle Sensor 2.0 boards to one Arduino microcontroller. Three additional shields updated for the 2.0 release include:
- MyoWare LED Shield
- MyoWare Cable Shield
- MyoWare Power Shield
"SparkFun has been carrying the MyoWare product line for nearly a decade at this point and has been one of their biggest fans the entire time. So, we are excited to partner with Advancer Technologies to manufacture and handle the sale of the MyoWare 2.0 ecosystem," said Kirk Benell, SparkFun's Chief Technical Officer. "By combining our resources, we've been able to design and create an ecosystem of EMG (electromyography) sensors and accessories that we can both be proud of."
The MyoWare 2.0 board and shields are now available for purchase at sparkfun.com.
