Description: The ProtoSnap series is a new way to prototype your project without a breadboard. Everything is wired together on a single board, which makes it easy to explore the possibilities of the components before snapping them apart and building them into your project.

The ProtoSnap LilyPad Simple Development board is a great way to get started in programmable e-textiles. By combining a LilyPad Simple board with 4 LED boards and a buzzer, the ProtoSnap LilyPad Simple Development board gives you everything you need to learn the basics. The kit also includes our LilyPad FTDI basic for programming the Simple board, conductive thread and needles and a Li-Po battery pack to power everything. The LiPo battery is rechargeable through the board; no more special external LiPo chargers required! The board also includes two pads to connect sensors using alligator clips (or use as a nifty touch-sensor).

This kit does not include a USB cable. You will need a USB mini-B for the FTDI basic. Check below for an appropriate cable if you don’t already have one.

Note: A portion of this sale is given back to Dr. Leah Buechley for continued development and education of e-textiles and also to Arduino LLC to help fund continued development of new tools and new IDE features.

Note: Because of the added battery charging circuitry the Simple is unable to power a device from the FTDI header meaning that the Bluetooth Mate, for instance, is no longer plug'n'play compatible. Please use caution when using this battery in wearable projects. When using conductive thread, a short in the thread can create sparks and heat. We recommend using coin cell batteries for beginners.

Note: Due to the requirements of shipping the battery in this kit, orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Customer Comments

  • how would you recharge the lipo battery that comes with this kit.?

    or is it a function that is built into the board

    • Doesn’t look like the request to add this information was acted upon:

      https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10274#comment-4eaad859757b7fd35100becd

      In short: The board will charge the LiPo when powered over USB. The tiny LED next to the battery connector, next to the ‘ON’ label for the switch, should display charging status as well (if I’m not mistaken).

    • A little late coming but I updated the description. Thanks Kamiquasi!
