Here are the parts you will be be using in this chapter:

  • LilyPad Arduino Simple (SF DEV-10274)
  • LilyPad LED (SF DEV-10081)
  • LilyPad Button (SF DEV-08776)
  • LilyPad Light Sensor (SF DEV-08464)
  • FTDI Board (AF 284, SF DEV-10275)
  • USB mini-B cable (AF 899, DK WM5163-ND, RS 55010682, SF CAB-11301)
  • alligator clip test leads (AF 1008, RS 278-1156, SF PRT-11037)

Optional

  • through-hole LED (DK 160-1703-ND, SF COM-09594)
  • 220Ω resistor (DK 220QBK-ND, RS 271-1313)
  • 10KΩ resistors (DK 10KQBK-ND, ...
