Developers, hobbyists and makers looking to learn more about communicating with I2C and SPI components, may be interested in a new teaching solution created by Daniel Hienzsch in the form of the I2C and SPI Education System Arduino shield.
The I2C and SPI Education System is an Arduino shield that has been combined with a web based tutorial system to help users learn more about how to talk to I2C and SPI components.
The I2C and SPI Education System project is currently looking to raise $6,000 in funding over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website. Hienzsch explains a little more :
“The Rheingold Heavy I2C and SPI Education System is a set of four tools I’ve designed to teach the details of serial communication. The system features…
– The Education Shield: an Arduino Uno shield with a wide variety of sensors and components that use I2C and SPI serial communications for you to access and interact with.
– The Education Website: an extensive system of tutorials that will walk you step by step through the intricacies of working with each of those devices and provide background theory.
– The Display Add-on: a versatile display that lets you play with the skills you’re learning by giving you feedback in visual and auditory ways.
– The Education Site Forum: a forum linked with the Education Site, where you can interact with others learning the same material you are, and the community as a whole can drive the direction of the course content.
My goal is to get you to the point where you’ll be able to select any I2C or SPI sensor out there and start working with it right away.”
If the Arduino shield compatible I2C and SPI Education System is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help I2C and SPI Education System become a reality.
