With SD and MMC memory prices dropping, the time is right for mass storage and datalogging. This breakout board will allow you to breakout the SD/MMC socket to a standard .1" 10-pin header. Perfect for breadboarding and the likes. Board comes fully assembled and tested as shown.
Here are a few other tutorials that might be helpful:
You must bring the voltage down from a 5V Arduino with a logic level converter. If you don't have a logic level converter, you can use some resistors like the ones that were used in our old logic level converter https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/using-the-logic-level-converter#hardware-overview. To use with Arduino, there is an SD card library that has already been written => http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/SD.
Note: In relation to the SD Mode http://pinouts.ru/Memory/sdcard_pinout.shtml and the pins of this breakout:
- CS/SS should be connected to CD/DAT3, which is labeled as D3 - MISO should be connected to DAT0 which is labeled D0 - MOSI should be connected to CMD which is labeled as CMD on the board
We also have a tutorial using the microSD Shield that might be of some use => https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/microsd-shield-and-sd-breakout-hookup-guide. Try looking at the design of the microSD shield to connect to an Arduino Uno footprint. There are other widgets on our storefront that use the microSD (like the OpenLog or LilyPad MP3 to name a few). Try looking at the Eagle board layouts and schematics for an idea of how to connect a microcontroller to the SD and microSD cards.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

but I wish the board included pullup resistors, which are recommended for all SD/MMC card circuits.
