This product has been reduced in price as sunlight has caused the boxes to change colour, as seen in the product images. The product inside is unaffected by the change in colour to the box.

If you're new to electronics and Arduino programming, the RedBoard Starter Kit is a great way for beginners to get their foot in the door. This little guy is essentially a mini SparkFun Inventor's Kit (minus the manual which you can find below) and can be taken straight out of the box to help you make a slew of basic circuits, including:

  • Blinking LEDs.
  • Making (bad) music.
  • Responding to buttons.
  • Twisting a volume knob.
  • Detecting ambient light.
  • Reading temperature.
  • Mixing LED colors.
  • And more!

This version comes with the SparkFun RedBoard and SparkFun USB Mini-B cable! Also included is a multitude of parts and sensors so you can start messing around with projects.

If you are looking for a great starting point into programming or are simply on a budget, look no further than the RedBoard Starter Kit.

Kit Includes:

  • RedBoard - Programmed with Arduino.
  • SparkFun USB Mini-B Cable - This cable provides you with a USB-A connector at the host end and mini-B connector at the device end.
  • Red Miniature Breadboard - Excellent for making circuits and connections off the Arduino. 
  • 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 - Great current limiting resistors for LEDs, and strong pull-up resistors.
  • 10k Ohm Resistors - These make excellent pull-ups, pull-downs, and current limiters.
