Blinky Component Kit (no PCB)
The Blinky Component Kit contains all of the parts you need (and a few spares) to populate a Blinky board PCB that you create from our free Altium Tutorial. This kit includes 4 green and 4 red LEDs. The microcontroller is pre-programmed with our standard Blinky firmware. Use the button to cycle between deep sleep, clockwise sequential, all-on fast blink, and all-on modes. If you’d like to customize your LEDs, please order the LED Kit.
It’s up to you to work through our step-by-step tutorial to create the board and order it (for as little as $5 — all of the instruction to do this are included in the tutorial). Remember that this kit has parts to populate ONE Blinky PCB.
Once your board arrives, solder on the parts and you’re ready to show your friends a really cool embedded system that YOU made from nothing. Use it as a keychain, a tree ornament, accent lighting, advertising blinker to attract attention, or just hang out under the covers and enjoy the beautiful light. The board uses a standard CR2032 coin cell battery (included) that should give you 10 hours of operation in full-on mode. The board is also re-programmable through the header on the board using our Programming Adapter and an MSP-FET430 (both sold seperately).
