Overview

The SparkFun Arduino Uno starter kit makes it easy to get started building entertaining and educational circuits with an Arduino. The kit includes an Arduino Uno along with a multitude of inputs, outputs, and sensors to get you started in the wonderful world of embedded electronics.

We also offer a SparkFun Inventor’s Kit, which includes an Arduino-compatible SparkFun RedBoard and all of the components needed to build 15 basic electronic circuits and a printed guide that walks the complete beginner through the construction of each project.

The Arduino Uno R3 included with this kit could be either the DIP edition or SMD edition. The two versions are functionally identical, differing only in the AVR package.

Included Goodies

  • Arduino Uno
  • 6′ USB A to B cable
  • 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 blinking light. 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 even 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.

Note: If you want to make your Arduino project wireless, please consider adding in our Wixel shield for Arduino.
