Looking to get started with the SparkFun Qwiic system? The MicroMod Qwiic Pro Kit provides you with a MicroMod Carrier, a MicroMod Processor, two sensors, a joystick, an OLED Screen, and all the cables you need to start utilizing Qwiic and I2C easily. This kit was designed to allow users to get started with MicroMod and Qwiic without the need for soldering or breadboarding. Hooking up a handful of inputs and outputs to a Carrier Board has never been so easy. Use the joystick, accelerometer, or proximity sensor, and one small display for outputting text, graphics, or even a microPong game!
The MicroMod Qwiic Carrier Board can be used to rapidly prototype with other Qwiic devices. The MicroMod M.2 socket provides users the freedom to experiment with any processor board in the MicroMod ecosystem. This board also features two Qwiic connectors and four 4-40 screw inserts to connect and mount Qwiic devices. We have paired the carrier board with the SAMD51 Processor for this kit. With a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4F MCU, the SparkFun MicroMod SAMD51 Processor Board is one powerful microcontroller packaged on a small board! The board provides you with an economical and easy-to-use development platform if you're needing more power with minimal working space. With the M.2 MicroMod connector, connecting your SAMD51 Processor is a breeze. Simply match up the key on your processor's beveled edge connector to the key on the M.2 connector and secure it with a screw (included with all Carrier Boards). The SAMD51 is one of the most powerful and economical microcontrollers available so to be able to add it to your MicroMod Carrier Board is a huge advantage for your project! We've included our favorite 0.8-meter reversible USB-C cable in the kit as well!
But you won't just get a MicroMod Carrier Board and SAMD51 Processor, also included in the MicroMod Qwiic Pro Kit is a slew of sensor and accessory boards, as well! The Qwiic Joystick makes it easy to control things like graphics or motors. The Qwiic Proximity sensor can detect objects and motions (like a hand appearing/disappearing) up to 20 centimeters away. The Qwiic 9DoF IMU includes a triple-axis accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer capable of measuring movement, tilt, orientation, electronic compass, and navigation. And last up, the Qwiic OLED is a 64x48 pixel white and black display that is easy to program for text and simple graphics.
The MicroMod Qwiic Pro Kit also includes a handful of Qwiic cables, numerous example sketches, and hookup guides available to get you started!
MicroMod is a modular interface ecosystem that connects a microcontroller “processor board” to various “carrier board” peripherals. Utilizing the M.2 standard, the MicroMod standard is designed to easily swap out processors on the fly. Pair a specialized carrier board for the project you need with your choice of compatible processor!
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.
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.
Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

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.
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.
