Cambridge, UK-based elektroThing is seeking to make it simpler to work with USB Energy Supply (PD) initiatives with the Spark Analyzer, a compact device constructed round an Espressif ESP32-C3 and designed for energy monitoring and manipulation.
“Spark Analyzer [is] an revolutionary ESP32-powered USB Kind-C Energy Supply (UCPD) appropriate gadget designed to streamline the event and debugging course of for initiatives and prototypes,” explains elektroThing’s YJ of the gadget. “With its compact and glossy design, wi-fi management, adjustable voltage output, and extra, Spark Analyzer is your go-to resolution for energy supply and evaluation.”

The compact Spark Analyzer, with its eye-catching prolonged PCB antenna, is constructed round an Espressif ESP32-C3 system-on-chip linked to a Fairchild FUSB302MPX USB Energy Supply management chip and a Cross Chip CC6904SO-10A present sensor and Diodes Included DMP3017SFG-7 field-effect transistor (FET). A USB Kind-C connector accepts incoming energy and information, whereas the negotiated voltage — 5V, 9V, 15V, or 20V — comes out to a screw terminal.
“With Spark Analyzer, builders can effortlessly monitor and manipulate voltage ranges, log information, and analyze energy consumption via a user-friendly and intuitive smartphone interface,” YJ claims, although with the proviso that stated app continues to be in lively improvement.

“This versatile gadget options each Wi-Fi and BLE [Bluetooth Low Energy] connectivity,” YJ continues, “enabling wi-fi management and information logging, eliminating the necessity for cumbersome bodily buttons, and facilitating distant operation from a distance.”
The Spark Analyzer is because of start crowdfunding on Crowd Provide within the close to future; its design information and supply code have already been revealed to GitHub below the permissive MIT license.
