The SparkFun Starter Kit for RedBoard makes it easy to get started building entertaining and educational circuits with SparkFun’s RedBoard, an Arduino clone that is mostly compatible with the Uno R3. The kit includes a RedBoard along with various types of sensors and indicators to get you started in the wonderful world of embedded electronics.
The SparkFun Starter Kit for RedBoard is a great way for beginners to learn the basics of electronic circuits and build familiarity with Arduino. Along with a SparkFun RedBoard, this kit includes various electronic components, premium jumper wires, a USB cable, and a prototyping breadboard. The various sensors and indicators can interface with the RedBoard individually, or they can be used together to create more complex systems. This starter kit has everything you need to start learning and building entertaining circuits with an Arduino-compatible board without needing to solder anything.
The RedBoard functions similarly to the Arduino Uno and Duemilanove, combining the simplicity of the Uno’s Optiboot bootloader, the stability of the FTDI serial adapter IC, and the R3 shield compatibility of the latest Arduino Uno R3. The RedBoard uses the standard Arduino IDE and can be programmed over the USB A to mini-B cable included in this kit.
We also offer a SparkFun Inventor’s Kit, which includes a RedBoard along with all of the components needed to build 15 basic electronic circuits to help beginners learn and build experience. It also includes a printed guide that walks the user through the construction of each project.
Note: If you want to make your Arduino or RedBoard project wireless, please consider adding in our Wixel shield for Arduino.
Note: SparkFun calls this product the “Starter Kit for RedBoard – Programmed with Arduino” SKU: DEV-11930. It replaces the Arduino Uno Starter Kit.
