Ready to get started with Raspberry Pi and Qwiic? The SparkFun Qwiic Starter Kit for Raspberry Pi includes the SparkFun Qwiic pHAT v2.0 for Raspberry Pi, which adds four Qwiic connectors to your Pi. It also includes four Qwiic-enabled boards: SparkFun VCNL4040 Proximity Sensor Breakout, SparkFun Micro OLED Breakout, SparkFun BME280 Atmospheric Sensor Breakout, and SparkFun SGP40 Air Quality Sensor. We have also included plenty of Qwiic Cables to connect everything together!
Take sensor readings from each Qwiic-enabled board using Python to measure proximity, ambient light, barometric pressure, humidity, temperature, and VOC Index. Then output the data through the Micro OLED display or a monitor using the serial terminal. Better yet, make an Internet of Things (IoT) project by displaying the sensor data on a custom dashboard using Cayenne!
The Qwiic system makes I2C on your Raspberry Pi a breeze. All you need is a Raspberry Pi with a 2x20 GPIO header to plug the HAT into. This kit can also be used with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit and Google Coral Development Board, since they utilize the same 2x20 GPIO header! Make sure to check the Includes Tab to see everything that comes in the box!
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.
