Beginner Parts Kit

This is the new revision of the kit. We switched to a better trimpot and green LED. This is a kit that gives you all of the basic thru-hole components you will need to get started playing with embedded projects. These are the ‘bubble gum’ parts that we regularly use. A good starter assortment of caps, ICs, regulators, diodes, and good-for-blinky LEDs. Be sure to look through our tutorials for some great projects.

This assortment of parts makes a great gift for beginner and advanced electronics nerds! For more gift ideas check out the SparkFun Gift Guide!
