To Infinity and Beyond…the SIK Programmed with Arduino (Part 2)

The SparkFun Inventor's Kit v4.1 opens a world of possibilities with five different projects. Are you hungry for more? Maybe you want to explore the world of I2C? Have no fear! These tutorials will get you started playing with SparkFun's Qwiic ecosystem. We specifically included the RedBoard Qwiic with the new SIK to make expanding into this ecosystem easier. The best part is that Qwiic offerings are expanding every week, both inside the four walls of SparkFun, and from outside, thanks to other open source hardware contributions!

Adding Qwiic Functionality

With the RedBoard Qwiic included in v4.1, you can also connect to several I2C sensors and boards with our Qwiic system!

Qwiic Accelerometer (MMA8452Q) Hookup Guide

Freescale’s MMA8452Q is a smart, low-power, three-axis, capacitive micro-machined accelerometer with 12-bits of resolution. It’s perfect for any project that needs to sense orientation or motion. We’ve taken that accelerometer and stuck it on a Qwiic-Enabled breakout board to make interfacing with the tiny, QFN package a bit easier.

Qwiic Proximity Sensor (VCNL4040) Hookup Guide

The SparkFun Qwiic Proximity Sensor is a great, qualitative proximity (up to 20 cm) and light sensor. This hookup guide covers a few examples to retrieve basic sensor readings.

SparkFun GPS Breakout (ZOE-M8Q and SAM-M8Q) Hookup Guide

The SparkFun ZOE-M8Q and SAM-M8Q are two similarly powerful GPS units but with different project applications. We'll compare both chips before getting each up and running.
