The Qwiic Starter Kit was designed to allow users to get started with Arduino without the need for soldering or breadboarding. Hooking up a handful of inputs and outputs to an Arduino has never been so easy. The Qwiic Starter Kit includes three inputs: a joystick, accelerometer, and proximity sensor, and one small display for outputting text, graphics, or even a microPong game!
The BlackBoard by SparkFun is an Arduino Uno derivative with a variety of feature improvements. We've increased the 3.3V regulator to output up to 600mA, included a Qwiic connector with translation circuitry, and even a jumper that allows the board to run at 3.3V or 5V. We've include our favorite 1 meter microB cable in the kit as well!
The Qwiic Joystick makes it easy to control things like graphics or motors. The Joystick has 1024 steps on both the X and Y axis and a select button when the joystick is pressed.
The Qwiic Proximity sensor can detect objects and motions (like a hand appearing/disappearing) up to 20 centimeters away.
The Qwiic Accelerometer is a classic solid state triple axis accelerometer capable of measuring movement, tilt, and orientation (portrait versus landscape for example).
The Qwiic OLED is a 64x48 pixel white and black display that easy to program for text and simple graphics.
The Qwiic Starter Kit includes a handful of Qwiic cables to get you started as well!
Numerous well written example sketches and hookup guides are available to get you started.

Will this great kit be upgraded with the awesome USB-C version of the BlackBoard?
We're not planning on it but you can create your own kit with the USB-C version ;)
