The SparkFun IoT RedBoard Kit is a comprehensive package, designed to simplify your journey into the world of IoT. This kit is centered around the ESP32 Development Board, a powerful device equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth® MCU module, all in an Arduino R3 format. The heart of it is the ESP32-D0WDQ6 chip, a versatile component that can be scaled and adapted to a wide range of applications, from low-power sensor networks to demanding tasks like voice encoding, music streaming, and MP3 decoding. The kit also includes the Qwiic Connect System for easy, solder-free connectivity.
The IoT RedBoard is not just about connectivity, it's also about monitoring your environment. The kit comes with the Qwiic High Precision Temperature Sensor, a high-accuracy sensor that communicates over an I2
C interface. This sensor can provide temperature readings with a precision of ±0.1°C over a range of -20°C to +50°C, and can measure temperatures as low as -55°C or as high as 150°C. This sensor also has a low power consumption rate, ensuring that self-heating does not affect the measurement accuracy.
In addition to the IoT RedBoard and the Temperature Sensor, the kit also includes a 100mm Qwiic cable, a reversible USB A to C cable, and a 1GB microSD card. The Qwiic cable and the USB cable provide the necessary connections for your IoT projects, while the microSD card provides storage for data logging or other applications.
The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is a key feature of the IoT RedBoard Kit. This ecosystem of I2
C sensors, actuators, shields, and cables makes prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector, reducing the amount of required PCB space. The polarized connections also mean that you can't connect them incorrectly, saving you from potential mistakes and hassles.
