SparkFun Constellation MicroMod Kit

The SparkFun Constellation MicroMod Kit is our newest limited edition offering that joins the ranks of the SkeleBoard and the SnowBoard. Instead of releasing a single board this year, we have opted to release a full kit, instead! This kit combines both MicroMod and Qwiic in a single box with a limited edition MicroMod ATP Carrier Board and MultiStar (this year's April Fool's Day joke). No, we aren't joking this time! Due to popular demand, we have reworked the MultiStar into a working (and much safer) celestial version of the MultiPort. Also included in this kit is a MicroMod Screw Driver and two Qwiic Cables to get you hooked up! The ATP Carrier Board and MultiStar included in this kit feature a matte black PCB with a star scape design in white silk.

with a puchase of the MicroMod Constellation Kit

How to redeem your choice of MicroMod Processor Board:

  1. Add the SparkFun Constellation MicroMod Kit to your cart!
  2. Add one of three of the following MicroMod Processors to your cart:

Additional rules: Only one free Processor per order. There is an order limit of five max per customer. No rainchecks or backorders will be allowed. We will not be allowing the combining of orders during this sale. Distributor and Reseller accounts will not be eligible.

Hurry! This is a limited edition and promotion - once they're gone, they're most likely gone for good!

Access all the pins (i.e. ATP) of the MicroMod Processor Boards with the SparkFun MicroMod ATP Carrier Board! This board breaks out the MicroMod Processor Board's pins on the M.2 connector to 0.1" spaced female headers and PTH pads on the edge of the board. This Carrier Board is great if you're interested in testing out different MicroMod Processor Boards for your application.

A modern USB-C connector makes programming easy. In addition to the pins broken out, two separate Qwiic-enabled I2C ports allow you to easily daisy chain Qwiic-enabled devices. We've exposed the SWD pins for more advanced users who prefer to use the power and speed of professional tools. A USB-A connector is provided for Processor Boards that have USB Host support. A backup battery is provided for processor boards with RTC. If you need a "lot" of GPIO with a simple-to-program, ready for market module, the ATP is the fix you need. We've even added a convenient jumper to measure the current consumption for low power testing.

Have you ever had problems trying to daisy chain Qwiic-enabled boards with only ONE Qwiic connector? Or maybe you need a Qwiic-enabled device that is not in the middle of a daisy chain? The SparkFun Qwiic MultiStar adds five additional ports to boards that have only one Qwiic port on the I2C bus. Once added, you can use it as a hub to add as many I2C devices to the bus as you need!


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.

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

1 DIY

Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.
See all skill levels


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.
See all skill levels


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.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

  • SaberMage / about 2 months ago / 2

    I added this and the RP2040 micromod board and the system reports invalid gift certificate.

  • Julian Blanco / about 2 months ago / 2

    Now the real question is when does the limited edition black micro mod come out......

  • Member #517719 / about 2 months ago / 1

    Just to be clear on the rules -

    Additional rules: Only one free Processor per SparkFun Constellation MicroMod Kit. There is an order limit of five max per customer.

    Add one of three of the following MicroMod Processors to your cart: (ESP32, RP2040, SAMD51)

    My plain reading of this is that I could -

    Add quantity 3 of the promo board. Add quantity 1 of EACH promo discounted processor

    I'm under the max per customer. And it seems each board qualifies for at least one processor board. (even though I'd prefer 3 SAMDs instead)

    If this is accurate, then how can I apply multiple promo codes to an order?

    If I'm miss-understanding the rules, please let me know.
