Have a lackluster datasheet for your sensor, but a demo app from the vendor that seems to calculate the value you need? If the app is written in .Net (Visual Basic or C#) -- and if it's Windows based, it probably is -- you might be able to decompile the app and find that magic formula you're looking for!
New from the fine people who have brought us the Beagle Board, we now have a smaller, lighter, but powerful single board linux computer, Beagle Bone! We like this move to a more compact and integrated SBC. For example, there is onboard Ethernet and USB host, as well as a USB client interface (a FTDI chip for shell access). It even comes preloaded with Angstrom Linux on the 4 GB microSD card! Here are some tips and tricks to get your BeagleBone up and running.
Ever look at a pile of 10mm LEDs and think "mmm, they look just like gumdrops!"

We carry a few different GPS modules here in the Adafruit shop, but none that satisfied our every desire - that's why we designed this little GPS breakout board. We believe this is the Ultimate GPS module, so we named it that. It's got everything you want and more. This guide will teach you how to wire it up to a computer or an Arduino, and how to use it.
Adafruit is a high-tech company, run by fairly young people. All of us working here have spent our lives with computers, technology, and the Internet. So it's not surprising that software and software-as-services (SaaS) are an essential part of running Adafruit. We're constantly on the lookout for useful new tools that can help Adafruit run efficiently, and cleanly.
