Retired RETIRED

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.

This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.

Replacement: DEV-10958. In the new version, we've changed the labeling on the LEDs to make more sense. We've also connected the speaker to ground so that only one I/O pin is required to get the buzzer working! This page is for reference only.

Description: The ProtoSnap series is a new way to prototype your project without a breadboard. Everything is wired together on a single board, which makes it easy to explore the possibilities of the components before snapping them apart and building them into your project.

The ProtoSnap LilyPad Development Board is designed to get you started in the world of e-textiles. Combining a LilyPad Simple Board with other LilyPad components like a buzzer, a vibration motor, an RGB LED, a button, a switch, five LEDs, a light sensor, and a temperature sensor, the ProtoSnap LilyPad Development Board lets you dive right into wearable electronics. When you’ve learned how to program the LilyPad Arduino Simple Board, break apart the components and explore the power of the LilyPad platform.

Note: This kit does not include a USB cable. You will need a USB mini-B for the FTDI basic. Check below for an appropriate cable if you don't already have one.

Note: A portion of this sale is given back to Dr. Leah Buechley for continued development and education of e-textiles and also to Arduino LLC to help fund continued development of new tools and new IDE features.

  • The “LilyPad FTDI Basic” is listed In the “Included on the Board” section but I don’t see it on the board in the photos, is it included separately?

    • The LilyPad FTDI Basic is included in the kit (not as part of the ProtoSnap board). We updated the description so it is a bit more clear.

  • Can you publish the source of the program that’s pre-installed on these?

  • Never paid much attention to “sewable” electronics before - guess I’m the sort that would want to merge my car or something like that with the stuff I build instead.
    Pondering the Lilypad concept, however, with all this exposed electronics, how does this stuff deal with static electricity - seems to me if you sewed this stuff onto some nice polyester, you could build up quite a charge, especially in the winter. Snap, and it’s dead.
    I see a lot of folks working with this stuff, I wonder what the failure rate is…

    • I have a box full of parts and there’s a few of these at the bottom, they all still work. polyester might be another story, but why would you be wearing it anyway ;-)

  • this is Awesome, Quick question could the temp sensor sense a hot flash, I’m thinking of making a jacket that lights LED’s to different moods.
