Description: The ProtoSnap is an Arduino-compatible development platform aimed at teaching the basics of Arduino programming as efficiently as possible. It requires zero assembly, wiring, or soldering, so you can jump right into programming the ProtoSnap to control LEDs, buzzers, light sensors, and more. There's even a small prototyping space so you can add your own parts!
Once you’ve gotten a firm grasp of the programming, you can snap off the individual components of the ProtoSnap for use in future projects. Those components include an Arduino Pro Mini microcontroller platform and an FTDI Basic Breakout to program it.
The ProtoSnap Pro Mini comes loaded with the Arduino Optiboot bootloader and performs the same as an Arduino UNO when loading code so educators can combine it with MiniBloq or MODKit to reach students with no programming experience.
Note: The first 3 rows of the protoboard are bussed together so you can use the for GND, VCC, or whatever else you need to connect together.
