Digital Sandbox - Learning plattform 41013019
Manufacturer: Sparkfun
In stock: 3


The Digital Sandbox (DS) is a learning platform that engages both the software and hardware worlds. Its powered by a Arduino compatible microcontroller that can interact with real-world inputs like light or temperature sensors while at the same time controlling LEDs, motors, and other outputs. The Digital Sandbox is equipped with everything, on board, that you will need to complete 13 experiments including controlling an LED, measuring how loud things are, detecting what the temperature is, and more. Think of this as a SparkFun Inventors Kit all in one board!

By interfacing the Sandbox to your computer via a USB cable, the Sandbox can be programmed using the popular Arduino programming environment. To further simplify the learning experience, weve designed the Sandbox and its guide around using a simple, blocky, programming add-on to Arduino called, Ardublock. Using ArduBlock a simple, graphical version of the popular Arduino programming language you will be able to program all of the experiments with a simple graphical interface instead of writing code.

The full-color Digital Sandbox Guide (included) contains step by step instructions of how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and explained and even includes troubleshooting tips if something goes wrong. The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for beginners ages 8 and up.

Note: There are three additional circuit experiments included in the DS Guide that will require the Digital Sandbox Add-On pack.

Circuit 1: Exploring Blink

Circuit 2: Multi-Blink

Circuit 3: Dimming (the Hard Way)

Circuit 4: Dimming (the Easy Way)

  • Lie detector

      Lie detector
    Novelty lie-detector as a kit. The kit is based on the principle that the skin moisture increase when you lie or is under stress. By comparing the ambient air moisture with that of the subject, the lie-detector can give some indication of how truthful the subject is. Detection speed can be adjusted with the onboard potentiometer. * Power supply : 9VDC. * Consumption : 32mA max. * PCB dimensions : 78 x 45mm * Recommended housing : FB03 12100940

  • DS18B20+ TO-92 temperature sensor

      DS18B20+ TO-92 temperature sensor
    Programmable Resolution 1-Wire Digital Thermometer The DS18B20 digital thermometer provides 9-bit to 12-bit Celsius temperature measurements and has an alarm function with nonvolatile user-programmable upper and lower trigger points. The DS18B20 communicates over a 1-Wire bus that by definition requires only one data line (and ground) for communication with a central microprocessor. It has an operating temperature range of -55°C to +125°C and is accurate to ±0.5°C over the range of -10°C to +85°C. In addition, the DS18B20 can derive power directly from the data line ("parasite power"), eliminating the need for an external power supply. Each DS18B20 has a unique 64-bit serial code, which allows multiple DS18B20s to function on the same 1-Wire bus. Thus, it is simple to use one microprocessor to control many DS18B20s distributed over a large area. Applications that can benefit from this feature include HVAC environmental controls, temperature monitoring systems inside buildings, equipment, or machinery, and process monitoring and control systems. Features FEATURES * Unique 1-Wire® Interface Requires Only One Port Pin for Communication * Each Device has a Unique 64-Bit Serial Code Stored in an On-Board ROM * Multidrop Capability Simplifies Distributed Temperature-Sensing Applications * Requires No External Components * Can Be Powered from Data Line; Power Supply Range is 3.0V to 5.5V * Measures Temperatures from -55°C to +125°C * ±0.5°C Accuracy from -10°C to +85°C * Thermometer Resolution is User Selectable from 9 to 12 Bits * Converts Temperature to 12-Bit Digital Word in 750ms (Max) * User-Definable Nonvolatile (NV) Alarm Settings * Alarm Search Command Identifies and Addresses Devices Whose Temperature is Outside Programmed Limits (Temperature Alarm Condition) * Software Compatible with the DS1822 * Applications Include Thermostatic Controls, Industrial Systems, Consumer Products, Thermometers, or Any Thermally Sensitive System 40359820
