The Arduino Starter Kit walks you through the basics of Arduino and electronics in a hands-on way. You will be able to build 15 projects using components that let you control the physical world through different kinds of sensors and actuators.
Once you have mastered this knowledge, you will have a palette of code and circuits to create something beautiful, and make someone smile with what you invent. So build, hack and share!

This \'full-size\' breadboard with 830 tie points is perfect for small and medium projects. it\'s 2.2" x 7" (5.4cm x 16.5cm) with a standard double-strip (630pts) in the middle and two power rails (200pts) on both sides. You can pull the power rails off easily to make the breadboard as thin as 1.4" (3.5cm). You can also "snap" these breadboards...
Der Raspberry Pi¨ ist ein kleiner Einplatinen-Computer, an den man direkt eine Tastatur und ein Fernsehgerät oder einen Monitor anschließen kann. Der ARM basierende Mini-PC findet Verwendung in vielen Einsatzbereichen, wie z.B. Textverabeitung, Kalkulation oder Spiele.
Das Arduino Uno R3 ist ein Mikrocontroller Board basierend auf einem ATmega328. Es hat 14 digitale Ein- / Ausgönge (6 davon können als PWM Kanöle genutzt werden), 6 analoge Eingönge, ein 16 MHz Quartz, USB Schnit\'stelle, einen 6 poligen ISP Anschluss und einen Reset Taster. Es enthölt alles nötige zum Start; man kann es einfach mit einem USB Kabel mit...
This is a cute half size breadboard which has 400 tie-points, is great for small projects. it\'s 2.2" x 3.4" (5.5cm x 8.2cm) with a standard double-strip (300pts) in the middle and two power rails (100pts) on both sides. You can pull the power rails off easily to make the breadboard as thin as 1.4" (3.5cm) and stick it onto your Raspberry Pi. You...
Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o board and a development environment that implements the Processing/Wiring language. Arduino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP). The open-source IDE can be downloaded for free...
Ever hear of a thing called RGB? Red, Green, Blue? How about an RGB LED? These 5mm units have four pins - Cathode is the longest pin. One for each color and a common cathode. Use this one LED for three status indicators or pulse width modulate all three and get mixed colors!
Now, it is time to add a more fancy interactive way to your project. This DFRobot touch kit comes with three types touch sensors. An ipod styple wheel touch, a keypad touch which supports backlit and a grid touch pad which can recoginze something unique. This kit utilizes the not very "latest" capactive touch technology which make the sensing very...
Move over NeoPixels, there\'s a new LED strip in town! These fancy new DotStar LED strips are a great upgrade for people who have loved and used NeoPixel strips for a few years but want something even better. DotStar LEDs use generic 2-wire SPI, so you can push data much faster than with the NeoPixel 800 KHz protocol and there\'s no specific timing...
The SparkFun OpenLog is an open source data logger that works over a simple serial connection and supports microSD cards up to 64GB. The OpenLog can store or log huge amounts of serial data and act as a black box of sorts to store all the serial data that your project generates, for scientific or debugging purposes.
W rsquo;ve been using and selling Analog Devices\' ADXL accelerometers for a good while now, and now w rsquo;ve found another great part in the series! The ADXL362 is a complete 3-axis MEMS acceleration measurement system that operates at extremely low power consumption levels. It measures both dynamic acceleration, resulting from motion or...
The Bluetooth Mate is very similar to our BlueSMiRF modem, but it is designed specifically to be used with our Arduino Pros and LilyPad Arduinos . These modems work as a serial (RX/TX) pipe, and are a great wireless replacement for serial cables. Any serial stream from 2400 to 115200bps can be passed seamlessly from your computer to your target.
This tiny little board does all of the neat-o Arduino tricks that you\'re familiar with: 4 channels of 10-bit ADC, 5 PWM pins, 12 DIOs as well as hardware serial connections Rx and Tx. Running at 8MHz and 3.3V, this board will remind you a lot of your other favorite Arduino-compatible boards but this little guy can go just about anywhere.
PowerBoost 1000C is the perfect power supply for your portable project! With a built-in load-sharing battery charger circuit, you\'ll be able to keep your power-hungry project running even while recharging the battery! This little DC/DC boost converter module can be powered by any 3.7V LiIon/LiPoly battery, and convert the battery output to 5.2V DC for...
Feather is the new development board from Adafruit, and like it\'s namesake it is thin, light, and lets you fly! We designed Feather to be a new standard for portable microcontroller cores.
This is the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 - our take on an \'all-in-one\' ESP8226 WiFi development board with built in USB and battery charging. Its an...
We love 7-segment displays and we know you do too, so we have made the easiest (arguably) to use medium for you to get up and running and use! This SparkFun OpenSegment Shield was specifically designed to run on top of most Arduino Uno compatible boards, all you need to do is attach headers and your choice of 7-segment display to the shield and snap it...
Your project may be free-as-in-speech, but that doesn\'t mean it has to be free-as-in-beer. This handy coin validator/acceptor module is just like the ones you\'ve seen in arcades. This model has the cool ability to accept up to 4 different coins!
