SparkFun will be closing on Monday for Memorial Day (5/28). Orders placed after 2pm MT on Friday (5/25) will process and ship out on Tuesday (5/29).
The SparkFun RedBoard Breadboard Kit allows you to assemble your very own Arduino-compatible development tool on a breadboard. If you’ve ever wanted to make a controller board from scratch or just understand how it all works, this kit is a good start.
We’ve put together all the parts you will need including an ATmega328 preloaded with the Optiboot bootloader. The breadboard overlay makes it easy to hook everything up correctly. Once you are finished, you will have a fully functioning Arduino-compatible controller on a breadboard.
An instruction booklet is included. Previous experience with a breadboard and electronics is recommended but not absolutely necessary.
Note: You will need an FTDI basic for loading code and communicating with the dev board. Check the related products down below.
Note: The schematic in the Assembly Guide isn’t great so we’ve included a separate schematic file below.
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: 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.

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: 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.
