SparkFun Electronics is an open source e-retailer focused on making embedded electronics accessible to people of all ages and skill levels. SparkFun was instrumental in creating the Open Source movement and remains a leader dedicated to making it more commonplace. We strive to educate, encourage, and supply our customers in all things electronic.

Since then, SparkFun has been committed to sustainably helping our world achieve electronics literacy from our headquarters in Boulder, Colorado. No matter your vision, SparkFun’s products and resources are designed to make the world of electronics more accessible. In addition to over 2,000 open source components and widgets, SparkFun offers curriculum, training and online tutorials designed to help demystify the wonderful world of embedded electronics. We’re here to help you start something.
