SparkFun RedBoard - BreadBoard Kit Retail

The RedBoard - BreadBoard Kit allows you to assemble your very own Uno-compatible development board on a breadboard. If you’ve ever wanted to make an Arduino-style 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 Uno 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 5V for loading code and communicating with the board. Check the related products down below.

SparkFun RedBoard - BreadBoard Kit Retail Product Help and Resources

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.

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.
