Description: if you're new to electronics and programming, the RedBoard Starter Kit is a great way for beginners to get their foot in the door. This little guy is essentially a mini SparkFun Inventor's Kit (minus the manual which you can find below) and can be taken straight out of the box to help you make a slew of basic circuits, including:

  • Blinking LEDs
  • Making (bad) music
  • Responding to buttons
  • Twisting a volume knob
  • Detecting ambient light
  • Reading temperature
  • Mixing LED colors
  • And more!

This version comes with our new SparkFun RedBoard and SparkFun USB Mini-B cable! Also included is a multitude of parts and sensors so you can start messing around with projects.

If you are looking for a great starting point into programming or are simply on a budget, look no further than the RedBoard Starter Kit.

Kit Includes:

  • RedBoard - Programmed with Arduino - The SparkFun RedBoard, fully assembled and tested.
  • SparkFun USB Mini-B Cable - This 6' cable provides you with a USB-A connector at the host end and mini-B connector at the device end.
  • Red Miniature Breadboard - Excellent for making circuits and connections off the Arduino. 
  • Male to Male jumper wires - These are high quality wires that allow you to connect the female headers on the Arduino to the components and breadboard.
  • Flex Sensor - Originally designed for the Nintendo Power Glove, now you too can measure flex!
  • SoftPot - Measure position along the softpot by looking at the change in resistance. It's like a touch sensitive volume slider.
  • Photocell - A sensor to detect ambient light. Perfect for detecting when a drawer is opened or when night-time approaches.
  • Thermistor - A sensor for detecting ambient temperature and temperature changes.
  • Tri-Color LED - Because everyone loves a blinky. Use this LED to PWM mix any color you need.
  • Basic LEDs - Light emitting diodes make great general indicators.
  • Linear trim pot - Also known as a variable resistor, this is a device commonly used to control volume, contrast, and makes a great general user control input.
  • Buzzer - Make wonderful, brain splitting noises, alarms, and possibly music!
  • 12mm button - Because big buttons are easier to hit.
  • 330 Ohm Resistors - Great current limiting resistors for LEDs, and strong pull-up resistors.
  • 10k Ohm Resistors - These make excellent pull-ups, pull-downs, and current limiters.
