Geekcreit® MEGA 2560 R3 ATmega2560-16AU MEGA2560 Development Board With USB Cable (2A4 Arduino Mega)
Description:

Arduino compatible R3 Mega2560 ATmega2560-16AU control board with USB cable
Arduino Mega is an ATmega2560 core microcontroller development board. Itself has 54 digital input/output terminals (14 PWM outputs), 16 simulation inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), using the 16 MHz crystal oscillator. With the bootloader, download the program directly via USB without having to go through other external writers. Supply part of the optional USB power, or external power using a AC-to-DC adapter and battery.
Rapid growth due to open original code, as well as the concept of using Java (cross-platform) C language development environment for Arduino module. The Arduino can easily use the Arduino language with Flash or Processing ... software communication, to make multimedia interactive works. Arduino development IDE interface is based on open-source principles, allows you to download for use in projects.
Power supply design:
There are two options for the power supply system of the Arduino Mega. USB direct power supply or external power supply. The power supply will be switched automatically. External supply AC-to-DC adapter or the battery can be selected on this control panel. Limit the voltage range of 6V ~~ 12V, but if the voltage supplied is less than 6V, I / O port may not be supplied to a voltage of 5V, and therefore not stable; If the voltage is greater than 12V, the regulator device may possibly overheat and damage the Arduino MEGA. It is therefore recommended that for the operating supply of 6.5 ~ 12V, the recommended power supply is 7.5V or 9V.
The development board have been rigorously tested at the factory.
  The chip is Arduino original.

Specification:

Microcontroller: ATmega2560
Operating voltage: 5V
Input voltage (recommended): 7-12V
Digital I/O pins: 54 (of which 14 provide PWM output)
Analog input pins: 16
DC current per I/O pin: 40 mA
DC current for 3.3V Pin: 50 mA
Flash Memory: 256 KB of which 4 KB is used by the bootloader
SRAM: 8 KB
EEPROM: 4 KB
Clock Speed: 16MHz

micro:bit board (3A4 micro:bit board)

Video on micro:bit https://youtu.be/Wuza5WXiMkc

The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized codeable computer with motion detection, a built-in compass, LED display, and Bluetooth technology built in.

It measures 4cm by 5cm, is available in a range of colours, and designed to be fun and easy to use. It can be coded with something simple in seconds – like lighting up its LEDs or displaying a pattern – with no prior knowledge of computing.

It also connects to other devices, sensors, kits and objects, and is a companion to Arduino, Galileo, Kano, littleBits and Raspberry Pi, acting as a spring board to more complex learning.

Each element is completely programmable via easy-to-use software on a dedicated website that can be accessed from a PC, tablet or mobile.

Product Overview

Containing 1x micro:bit and a Quick Start Guide in a single retail pack, this is the ideal option for makers to get started creating BBC micro:bit projects and inventing solutions (requires a USB cable for programming purposes, and a battery holder & 2x AAA batteries to power your BBC micro:bit if not connected to your computer - sold separately). The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. Measuring 4cm by 5cm, and designed to be fun and easy to use, users can create anything from games and animations to scrolling stories at school, at home and on the go - all you need is imagination and creativity. The micro:bit is completely programmable. That means each of its LEDs can be individually programmed as can its buttons, inputs and outputs, accelerometer, magnetometer and Bluetooth Smart Technology. The micro:bit has a website full of coding languages, lesson plans, tutorials, and fun ideas
  • Size: approx. 5cm x 4cm

Even though the battery holder fits the normal AA batteries DO NOT USE THEM!  A 14500 lithium cell is identical in shape and size to a standard AA battery. But that is where the similarities end. AA supplies 1.5V each where 14500 supply 3.7V each.

Adafruit Circuit Playground Express (3A6 Circuit playground express)

Circuit Playground Express is the next step towards a perfect introduction to electronics and programming. We've taken the original Circuit Playground Classic and made it even better! Not only did we pack even more sensors in, we also made it even easier to program.

Start your journey with Microsoft MakeCode block-based or Javascript programming. Or, you can follow along with code.org CS Discoveries. Then, you can use the same board to try CircuitPython, with the Python interpreter running right on the Express. As you progress, you can advance to using Arduino IDE, which has full support of all the hardware down to the low level, so you can make powerful projects.

Because you can program the same board in 3 different ways - the Express has great value and re-usability. From beginners to experts, Circuit Playground Express has something for everyone.

Here's some of the great goodies baked in to each Circuit Playground Express:

  • 10 x mini NeoPixels, each one can display any color
  • 1 x Motion sensor (LIS3DH triple-axis accelerometer with tap detection, free-fall detection)
  • 1 x Temperature sensor (thermistor)
  • 1 x Light sensor (phototransistor). Can also act as a color sensor and pulse sensor.
  • 1 x Sound sensor (MEMS microphone)
  • 1 x Mini speaker with class D amplifier (7.5mm magnetic speaker/buzzer)
  • 2 x Push buttons, labeled A and B
  • 1 x Slide switch
  • Infrared receiver and transmitter - can receive and transmit any remote control codes, as well as send messages between Circuit Playground Expresses. Can also act as a proximity sensor.
  • 8 x alligator-clip friendly input/output pins
  • Includes I2C, UART, 8 pins that can do analog inputs, multiple PWM output
  • 7 pads can act as capacitive touch inputs and the 1 remaining is a true analog output
  • Green "ON" LED so you know its powered
  • Red "#13" LED for basic blinking
  • Reset button
  • ATSAMD21 ARM Cortex M0 Processor, running at 3.3V and 48MHz
  • 2 MB of SPI Flash storage, used primarily with CircuitPython to store code and libraries.
  • MicroUSB port for programming and debugging
  • USB port can act like serial port, keyboard, mouse, joystick or MIDI!

Creality CR-X Large Size DIY 3D Printer Kit (WH CR-X 3D Printer)
Setup video available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cOQg-Mqcl8

Advantages:

1. Two-colour printing: double-injection and one-out nozzle design. Two consumables, two extruders, one nozzle.

2.  Integrated design: The exterior design of the profiled sheet metal base is used to store most of the electronic components in the sheet metal bottom case.

3. 4.3-inch colorful touch screen: user-friendly UI design, with sound prompts, perfect human-machine dialogue function, to bring users an unprecedented intelligent operating experience.

4. Carboloy silicon printing platform: no need to use glue, perfect bonding with consumables at 60 °C, Reduce adhesion after cooling, the model and platform are easy to separate, and the model is easy to remove.

5. larger power supply:use well-known mean well large power supply,only needs 6 minutes to heat the hot bed to 100.

6. larger leveling nutsErgonomic design, easy to adjust.

7. Single wire design: only need one wire to connect the base and the gantry, which makes it looks compact and beautiful.

8. Dual fan cooling: better cooling effect, faster cooling and more efficient radiating.

9. Support water-soluble consumables: use the second nozzle to print water-soluble support, easy to remove after soaking in water, giving you a more detailed model surface.

10. All-metal extruder: better strength, longer service life, and self-contained elastic adjustment device, giving you a smoother printing experience.

11. Z-axis double screw design: more stable lifting, higher printing accuracy.

12.Resume printing while power-off: The motherboard is fully upgraded and supports continuous power failure, which effectively reduces model scrapping caused by power outages.

13.Creality3d V2.1 motherboard: all-upgrade, quality assurance, industrial-grade process, 200 hours of continuous printing without pressure.
