Arduino MKR IoT Bundle
The MKR IoT Bundle walks you through the basics of using the Arduino MKR1000 for IoT applications. You'll learn through building 5 creative experiments thanks to the step by step online tutorials available on the Arduino Project Hub platform. The MKR IoT bundle includes a selection of the most common and useful electronic components to build 5 IoT experiments.
The 5 experiments you can make:
The kit is based around the MKR1000—a powerful board that combines the functionality of the Zero and the Wi-Fi Shield—and enables Makers to add connectivity to their designs with minimal prior networking experience.
Each bundle includes:
- 1 Arduino MKR1000 board, with header soldered.
- 1 micro USB cable,
- 1 400-point breadboard,
- 70 solid-core jumper wires,
- 1 9V battery snap,
- 1 stranded jumper wire
- 1 stranded jumper wire,
- 6 phototransistors,
- 3 potentiometers (10 kilohm),
- 10 pushbuttons,
- 1 temperature sensor (TMP36),
- 1 tilt sensor,
- 1 alphanumeric LCD (16 x 2 characters),
- 1 bright white,
- 34 LEDs (5 ldr bright white, 1 RGB, 8 red, 8 green, 8 yellow, 3 blue),
- 1 small DC motor (6/9V),
- 1 small servo motor,
- 1 piezo capsule (PKM17EPP-4001-B0),
- 1 H-bridge motor driver (L293D),
- 1 octocouplers (4NE5),
- 2 MOSFET transistors (IRF520),
- 5 capacitors (100uF),
- 5 diodes (1N4007),
- 3 transparent gels (R,G,B)
- 1 male pin strip (40 x 1),
- 20 resistors (220 ohm),
- 5 resistors (560 ohm),
- 5 resistors (1 kilohm),
- 5 resistors (4.7 kilohm),
- 20 resistors (10 kilohm),
- 5 resistors (1 megohm),
- 5 resistors (10 megohm)
Q: I plugged the board to my PC / MAC but I cannot see the serial port listed in the IDE, so I can't upload my sketch to the board!
A: The first thing to try is to manually put the board into bootloader mode, this is accomplished by quickly pressing the reset button twice (you may need a pencil to push the button). The second thing to try is to try another USB cable: some micro-USB cables are "power only", you'll see the board is powered but won't get a connection to the PC.
Q: I plugged the board, I can see the serial port but I cannot upload sketch
A: If still on, remove the conductive foam that protects the pins.
Q: What is the VIN voltage range?
A: VIN Nominal voltage value is 5V. It ranges from 5V to 6V (6V is the Maximum)
Q: What does Vin, 5V and VCC mean?
- Vin: This pin can be used to power the board with a regulated 5V source. If the power is fed through this pin, the USB power source is disconnected. This is the only way you can supply 5v (range is 5V to maximum 6V) to the board not using USB. This pin is an INPUT.
- 5V: This pin outputs 5V from the board when powered from the USB connector or from the VIN pin of the board. It is unregulated and the voltage is taken directly from the inputs. When powered from the battery it supplies around 3.7 V. As an OUTPUT, it should not be used as an input pin to power the board.
- VCC: This pin outputs 3.3V through the onboard voltage regulator. This voltage is the same regardless the power source used (USB, Vin or Battery).
