SparkFun Qwiic Ideation Kit

The SparkFun Qwiic Ideation Kit is the smorgasbord of our best and most popular Qwiic boards that allows you to bring any project idea to life. This kit allows users to get started with Arduino without the need for soldering or breadboarding. We've included a large number of inputs and outputs making it easy to brainstorm and then test out different ideas. Hooking up a handful of inputs and outputs to an Arduino has never been so easy.

The Qwiic Ideation Kit includes multiple inputs and outputs: our RedBoard Qwiic, precision IMU, environmental air sensor, GPS module, joystick, accelerometer, keypad and proximity sensor, an MP3 player, a relay, and the classic full graphic OLED display.

Imagine a relay that triggers when you've gotten to a particular GPS location, or a display that always points north, or a soundtrack that plays when there're too many VOCs detected. What can you do with a kit that can sense the world and then control it? That's up to you and your ideas...


The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This reduces the amount of required PCB space, and polarized connections mean you can’t hook it up wrong.

Qwiic Accelerometer (MMA8452Q) Hookup Guide

April 5, 2018

Freescale’s MMA8452Q is a smart, low-power, three-axis, capacitive micro-machined accelerometer with 12-bits of resolution. It’s perfect for any project that needs to sense orientation or motion. We’ve taken that accelerometer and stuck it on a Qwiic-Enabled breakout board to make interfacing with the tiny, QFN package a bit easier.
