New Product Post – A Week About Kits

Hi dear All, we are back from Dragon Boat Festival 😀

This week we focus on some kits. Now, let’s see what’s new.

Staff Pick : Sidekick Basic Kit for Arduino V2Grove Starter Kit V3

Sidekick Basic Kit is designed to be used with your Arduino/Seeeduino/Seeeduino ADK/Maple Lilypad or any other MCU boards. It contains everything needed for a first-time user to connect his/her computer to an Arduino.

If you do not know yet, Grove is a modular electronic platform for quick prototyping. Every module has one function, such as touch sensing, creating audio effect and so on. Just plug the modules you need to the base shield, then you are ready to test your idea buds.

Now, we’ve upgraded the Grove Starter Kit Plus to Version 3. It included more frequently encountered modules in this kit to support your concept buildup.

And, we also upgraded Base Shield to a new version.

Base Shield has a similar shape to Arduino, which enables exact reflections of each I/O pins. Users could easily connect the Base Shield’s I/O ports to Arduino’s I/O ports even without knowing their exact locations.

Besides, we also have an upgraded Starter Shield, which is an all-in-one platform for beginners and contains most common resources for a basic electronic project, like buttons, sensors, buzzer and display in One shield board.

We have a new BLE Shield, named Seeed BLE Shield. It’s based on HM-11 BLE Module and provides your Arduino/Seeeduino with serial BLE function. We also prepared an easy and convenient command set for this shield so that you can use neat and concise code to run the function.

This Seeed BLE Shield has two Grove connectors that you can easy to connect I2C and digital IO Grove modules to Arduino / Seeeduino.

That’s all we have for the week. Next week, we will have new version of Mixer and more Grove modules. So, be sure to come back next week. See you next week!

And, Happy hacking! 😀
