96Boards starter kit with Linker mezzanine card and loft modules. All the Linker kit modules can be plugged onto 96Boards through this card. This starter kit is a great way to get started with 96Boards, and it contains the components you need to make eight fun projects following step-by-step tutorials. Starting from the basics of electronics modules, to more complex projects, the kit will help you control the physical world with sensor and actuators and help you ramp up your progamming using 96Boards.
The Linker mezzanine card has eight connectors supporting Analog, UART, I2C and GPIO, and two channels of analog input using the MCP3004 ADC chip. There are bidirectional voltage-level translators which allows for low-voltage bidirectional translation between any of the 1.2-V,1.5-V, 1.8-V, 2.5-V, 3.3-V, and 5-V voltage nodes. So it is compatible with 3.3V or 5V modules and makes connecting peripherals easy. You just plug a jumper onto JP9 to select which input voltage you need.
