The ProtoSnap series is a new way to prototype your project without a breadboard. Everything is wired together on a single board, which makes it easy to explore the possibilities of the components before snapping them apart and building them into your project.
The ProtoSnap LilyPad Development Board is designed to get you started in the world of e-textiles. Combining a LilyPad Simple Board with other LilyPad components like a buzzer, a vibration motor, an RGB LED, a button, a switch, five LEDs, a light sensor, and a temperature sensor, the ProtoSnap LilyPad Development Board lets you dive right into wearable electronics. When youve learned how to program the LilyPad Arduino Simple Board, break apart the components and explore the power of the LilyPad platform.
We've made some minor changes since the last revision that make it easier forusto build and easier for youto snap. We haven't changed anything about the way it works though, don't worry!
Note: This kit does not include a USB cable. You will need a USB mini-B for the FTDI basic. Check below for an appropriate cable if you don't already have one.
Note: Because of the added battery charging circuitry the Simple is unable to power a device from the FTDI header meaning that the Bluetooth Mate, for instance, is no longer plug'n'play compatible.
Included on the Board:
- 1 x LilyPad Simple Board
- 1 x LilyPad Button
- 1 x LilyPad Slide Switch
- 5 x LilyPad White LED
- 1 x LilyPad RGB tri-color LED
- 1 x LilyPad Light Sensor
- 1 x LilyPad Temp Sensor
- 1 x LilyPad Buzzer
- 1 x LilyPad Vibe board
Kit Also Includes:
- 1 xLilyPad FTDI Basic
- 2 xConductive Thread Bobbin
- 1 xNeedle Set
- 1 x110mAh LiPo Battery
The main issue you will experience with this is powering the LED’s. off a normal coin cell battery you would be able to power around 6LED’s, and even off a polymer lithium battery you would struggle to power much more before reaching the safety cut off limit. As such your project would be difficult to achieve.Posted byon Wednesday, 16 March 2016
