Ten each of the following are available for a one-week checkout:

  • Arduino Base and Supply Kits
  • Raspberry Pi 2 Kits
  • TI LaunchPad (MSP430 version)

Arduinos are intended for beginners, with a focus on hands-on circuit/electronics making along with some programming. Raspberry Pi computers share characteristics with the Arduinos, and are focused on programming. TI LaunchPads, used in many of UH Electronic and Computer Engineering courses, are best for intermediate/advanced users.

In addition to the kits, three sets of testing and measurement equipment are available, including an oscilloscope, power supply and multimeter, in the Learning Commons for testing of projects and designs.

Accessories, including sensors and motors for the kits, additional starter kits, and dedicated space within the Learning Commons for “maker” activities will be added through the remainder of the semester and into the summer.
