Starter Kit for Arduino - Flex (sale)

Replacement:DEV-10174. This kit now includes the Arduino Uno. This page is for reference only.

The Arduino Starter Kit is a great raw parts re-fill for beginners and weathered professionals alike. Included is a multitude of inputs, outputs, and sensors to get your workbench back up to par. If you're just getting started with Arduino, we recommend the SparkFun Inventor's Kit that comes with a printed manual.

Included:

  • Arduino Duemilanove ATmega328 - the latest Arduino USB board, fully assembled and tested.
  • 6' USB A to B cable - USB provides power for up to 500mA (enough for most projects) and is ample length to connect to your desktop or laptop USB port.
  • Miniature breadboard - Excellent for making circuits and connections off the Arduino. Breadboard may come in various colors.
  • Male to Male jumper wires - These are high quality wires that allow you to connect the female headers on the Arduino to the components and breadboard.
  • Flex Sensor - Originally designed for the Nintendo Power Glove, now you too can measure flex!
  • SoftPot - Measure position along the softpot by looking at the change in resistance. It's like a touch sensitive volume slider.
  • Photocell - A sensor to detect ambient light. Perfect for detecting when a drawer is opened or when night-time approaches.
  • Thermistor - A sensor for detecting ambient temperature and temperature changes.
  • Tri-Color LED - Because everyone loves a blinky. Use this LED to PWM mix any color you need.
  • Basic LEDs - Light emitting diodes make great general indicators.
  • Linear trim pot - Also known as a variable resistor, this is a device commonly used to control volume, contrast, and makes a great general user control input.
  • Buzzer - Make wonderful, brain splitting noises, alarms, and possibly music!
  • 12mm button - Because big buttons are easier to hit.
  • 330 Ohm Resistors - 5 current limiting resistors for LEDs, and strong pull-up resistors.
  • 10k Ohm Resistors - These make excellent pull-ups, pull-downs, and current limiters.
