SparkFun Thing Plus - Artemis

If you are looking for a board that (almost) does it all, look no further! The SparkFun Artemis Thing Plus takes our popular Thing Plus footprint and adds in the powerful Artemis module for ultimate functionality. Fully compatible with SparkFun's Arduino core, the modern USB-C connector makes it easy to program under the Arduino IDE but for more advanced users who prefer to use the power and speed of professional tools, we've also exposed the JTAG connector. To make the Thing Plus even easier to use, we've moved a few pins around to make the board Feather compatible and it utilizes our handy Qwiic Connect System which means no soldering or shields are required to connect it to the rest of your system!

With 1MB flash and 384k RAM you'll have plenty of room for your sketches. The on-board Artemis module runs at 48MHz with a 96MHz turbo mode available and with Bluetooth to boot! We've added a digital MEMS microphone for folks wanting to experiment with always-on voice commands with TensorFlow and machine learning. The addition of the Qwiic connector opens up plug-and-play I2C functionality with our wide array of Qwiic boards.

With so much functionality, the SparkFun Artemis Thing Plus is an ideal choice for your Internet of Things project. We've even made it Feather-compatible so you can take advantage of a shield option in case you didn't want to use our Qwiic Connect System! If you need more Apollo3 functionality or a more concise form factor, check out our Artemis ATP or Artemis Nano.

Artemis Development on Arm® Mbed™ OS (Beta)

September 10, 2020

With the latest Artemis DK, board, we now offer full Bluetooth support within the Arduino IDE and development with Mbed™ OS. While we have worked tirelessly to get the Artemis module supported in the next Mbed™ OS release, the next release isn't slated until after the Artemis DK becomes available to the public. Therefore, this post will provide users with a jump start for developing with Mbed™ Studio, prior to the next release (in a beta of sorts), by utilizing our fork of Mbed™ OS.

Hookup Guide for the SparkFun Artemis Thing Plus

September 19, 2019

Get started with our SparkFun Artemis Thing Plus - our popular Thing Plus footprint with the powerful Artemis module for ultimate functionality.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

  • Given the impressive quiescent draw the Artemis can achieve (2.5 μA), it would be great to see the next revision of this board have jumpers for the LEDs, microphone and the MCP73831 charger.

  • What is the power consumption of the SparkFun Thing Plus - Artemis ?

    No BLE Just a sketch that blinks an LED

    Either powered by USB or a LiPo? (I'm not picky, just trying to get an idea)

    I get that the Artemis is very low power -but still some other components that would draw energy
