The SparkFun Proximity Sensing Kit is compatible with the Qwiic ecosystem of boards, providing numerous options for project expansion. However, please note that the MP3 Player Shield included in the kit will require soldering to attach it to the SparkFun RedBoard. This kit comes with a set of headers, so you'll only need a soldering iron and solder.
The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is a unique ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields, and cables that simplifies prototyping and reduces errors. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector, which reduces the required PCB space and eliminates the risk of incorrect connections thanks to its polarized design.
The SparkFun Proximity Sensing Kit includes the following:
