E-blocks 2 is the latest generation of microcontroller boards from Matrix. E-blocks
2 boards give you a choice of programmer boards, with Arduino and PIC programmer
boards already released and additional boards to be added in the New Year. The system
then allows users to connect their choice from a range of boards, and build a complete
system in a matter of minutes. The E-blocks 2 system is ideal for everyone, from
those learning in an educational environment to engineers in the industrial world.
Use of E-blocks is well supported with complementary ranges of software (including
PIC, dsPIC, ARM and AVR Arduino IDE, Flowcode).
If you want a solution that allows you a flexible way of studying microcontroller
systems, the E-blocks 2 development kits are a perfect way to allow you to follow
a well written, free course on microcontroller programming, whilst giving you the
option to choose the platform on which you work.
This kit is suitable for delivery of unit 6 of the BTEC Level 3 in Engineering;
microcontroller systems for engineers The E-blocks 2 Arduino microcontroller system
development kit contains an Arduino shield board (with Ghost technology), fitted
with an Arduino Uno and combo board, which is covered in removeable acrylic for
lab protection purposes and presented on a printed panel, which not only looks great
but also provides a student friendly solution for microcontroller development. This
kit also includes a keypad board, a prototype board, a motors and actuators training
board, a relay board and a Grove sensor mother board plus the relevant sensors on
infrared, temperature, humidity, ultrasonic.
This kit is also supplied with power supply, USB and a neat, Gratnell's tray storage
For learners, this kit is compatible with our Introduction to microcontroller programming
course which is available for free here. This 50-hour course teaches the basics
of developing projects based on microcontrollers using our Flowcode software. The
kit is also compatible with the Arduino IDE, and is flexible hardware platform for
learning C code and other languages. This product includes an BL0055 Arduino Shield
which, when combined with Flowcode, provides access to the advanced In- Circuit
Test and In-Circuit Debug features found in our revolutionary Ghost Technology.
