The Qwiic Starter Kit was designed to allow users to get started with Arduino without the need for soldering or breadboarding. Hooking up a handful of inputs and outputs to an Arduino has never been so easy. The Qwiic Starter Kit includes three inputs: a joystick, accelerometer, and proximity sensor, and one small display for outputting text, graphics, or even a microPong game!
The BlackBoard by SparkFun is an Arduino Uno derivative with a variety of feature improvements. We’ve increased the 3.3V regulator to output up to 600mA, included a Qwiic connector with translation circuitry, and even a jumper that allows the board to run at 3.3V or 5V. We’ve include our favorite 1 meter microB cable in the kit as well!
The Qwiic Joystick makes it easy to control things like graphics or motors. The Joystick has 1024 steps on both the X and Y axis and a select button when the joystick is pressed.
The Qwiic Proximity sensor can detect objects and motions (like a hand appearing/disappearing) up to 20 centimeters away.
The Qwiic Accelerometer is a classic solid state triple axis accelerometer capable of measuring movement, tilt, and orientation (portrait versus landscape for example).
The Qwiic OLED is a 64x48 pixel white and black display that easy to program for text and simple graphics.
The Qwiic Starter Kit includes a handful of Qwiic cables to get you started as well!
Numerous well written example sketches and hookup guides are available to get you started.
