Already have an Arduino, but not sure what to do with it? Add it to our Solarbotics edition of the Arduino Experimenter's Kit!


Description [Hide]

Solarbotics has teamed up with Oomlout to produce their clever Arduino Experimenter's Kit here in North America. This version comes without an Arduino!

Note: This is exactly the same kit as our standard ARDX, but without the Arduino & USB cable. Add your own Arduino or Freeduino SB (and USB cable)!

This open-source project features 11 experiments that are step-by-step simple, and with a full-colour template overlay for your breadboard, you're unlikely to go wrong. We've combed through the documentation to make it as clear and concise as we can, and have re-posted it back up to the archive at http://www.ardx.org (ain't open-source cooperation great?).

We've selected hardware for our version of the kit that easily meets or exceeds the requirements of the Experimenter's Kit. Of particular note are:

  • 12 colour breadboard template overlay sheets. These make it very simple to accurately mount your components to the breadboard.
  • Pin these down with the supplied pins and connect to the 5-cell AA battery pack holder. 7.5V means the 5V power regulator on your Arduino / Freeduino-SB will run perfectly with no fear of a voltage sag.
  • Large 11 x 7" plastic case has plenty of space for your whole experimenter's package - even the manual!
  • Larger-than-normal 10 x 6 x 3/8" 32 page manual is easier to read than a folded 8.5x5.5" half-sheet manual.

The rest of the kit contains a veritable plethora ("lots of neat things"), including:

  • 300 point breadboard
  • Laser cut color acrylic base-plate
  • 70-piece flexible jumper wire bundle (these are nice)
  • 10 x Red 5mm LEDs
  • 11 x Green 5mm LEDs
  • 1 x Massive 10mm blue LED
  • 1 x DC Motor
  • 1 x Mini Servo
  • 1 x 74HC595 8-bit shift register IC
  • 1 x Piezo Speaker/sensor element
  • 2 x Pushbuttons
  • 1 x 10k Trimpot with handy finger-sized knob
  • 1 x Photo resistor
  • 1 x TMP36 Temperature sensor
  • 1 x 5V DPDT relay
  • 2 x 2n2222 transistors
  • 25 x 560 ohm resistors
  • 3 x 2.2k resistors
  • 3 x 10k resistors
  • 2 x 1N4001 diodes
  • Arduino-to-acrylic base mounting hardware
  • 4 x 2-pin male headers (for pinning the templates to the breadboard)
  • 1 x 20-pin male header (for pinning down templates to other breadboards at the same time)

It's a great way to get started with Arduino. With a laptop (with Internet to download code samples) and this bundle, you really can just sit down and get right to work!

Adafruit 8-channel Bi-directional Level Converter - TXB0108

Because the Arduino (and Basic Stamp) are 5V devices, and most modern sensors, displays, flash cards and modes are 3.3V-only, many makers find that they need to perform level shifting/conversion to protect the 3.3V device from 5V.
