SparkFun mbed Starter Kit

Stock code: KIT-14458

The SparkFun mbed Starter Kit (mSK) is a great way to get into user-created projects created by ARM to assist with rapid prototyping on microcontrollers. The mSK, which utilizes the LPC1768 by ARM, includes everything you need to complete 10 circuits that will teach you how to create a USB host, draw text and shapes on an LCD, log temperature data and more. We recommend that you do have some previous programming or electronics experience before using this kit.

The online mSK Experiment Guide (in the Documents tab) contains step-by-step instructions for how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and explained and even includes Fritzing diagrams and the required components.

The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for anyone with an intermediate to advanced knowledge of programming. We've essentially designed this kit to be the next step up from the SparkFun Inventor's Kit (SIK). So if you are looking for a new challenge, check out the mbed Starter Kit!
