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.

Microcontroller: ATmega2560
Operating voltage: 5V
Input voltage (recommended): 7-12V

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
  • Weight: 8g
  • Microprocessor: 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ M0 CPU
  • A 5x5 LED matrix with 25 red LEDs to light up and can display animiated patterns, scrolling text and alphanumeric characters
  • Two programmable buttons. Use them as a games controller, or control music on a smart phone
  • On-board motion detector or 3-AXIS digital accelerometer that can detect movement e.g. shake, tilt or free-fall and use it to control motion activated games
  • A built-in compass, 3D magnetometer to sense which direction you're facing and your movement in degrees and detect the presence of certain metals and magnets
  • Bluetooth® Smart Technology. Connect the micro:bit to other micro:bits, devices, phones, tablets, cameras and other everday objects
  • Five Ring Input and Output (I/O) including power (PWR), ground (GRD) and 3 x I/O. The micro:bit can read values from sensors and control things like motors or robots
  • 20 pin edge connector: This allows the micro:bit to be connected to other devices such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Galileo and Kano through a standard connector
  • Micro-USB controller: This is controlled by a separate processor and presents the micro:bit to a computer as a memory stick

WS Raspberry Pi Camera Board V2 (8MP,1080p) (C3 Camera 8MP)

The Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2 is the new and improved official camera board from the Raspberry Pi Foundation! Custom designed and manufactured by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in the UK, the Raspberry Pi Camera Board V2 features an ultra-high quality 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor (up from 5MP on the V1 camera board), and a fixed focus camera lens. The V2 camera module is capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video.

The module attaches to Raspberry Pi by way of a 15 Pin Ribbon Cable, to the dedicated 15-pin MIPI Camera Serial Interface (CSI), which was designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The CSI bus is capable of extremely high data rates, and it exclusively carries pixel data to the BCM2835 processor. A 150mm CSI cable is included with every camera.

The board itself is tiny, at around 25mm x 23mm x 9mm, and weighs just over 3g, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and weight are important. 

The Raspberry Pi Camera Board V2 Features:

  • Fixed focus lens on-board
  • 150mm CSI camera cable included
  • 8 megapixel native resolution sensor-capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images
  • Supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video
