Product Details

FIGnition inFUZE SBC Education Kit

FIGnition inFUZE is an Arduino®-sized and shield compatible single-board computer aimed squarely at the hobby and education market. It is supplied in kit form with comprehensive web-based instructions on how to solder it together. All the parts are standard 'through-hole' format (no surface-mount components) and even a beginner should have little difficulty creating a working computer in a few hours. Only three extra items need to be provided by the user - a television or monitor with a composite video input, a composite video cable and a suitable mains power supply. The microcontroller device is supplied pre-programmed with a high-level language, a dialect of Forth, and programs may be entered via the on-board keypad. FIGnition is an Open-Source product and third-party suppliers are starting to produce add-on 'shields' for it.
The on-board Flash memory is supplied pre-loaded with a range of games and utilities including a simple 2-channel analogue data logger. Users are encouraged to create their own add-on 'shields' using copper strip-board.

Caution

While they are not overly static-sensitive, it's a good idea to keep the chips in the black foam until required and to avoid charging yourself up on nylon carpets!

Starting Forth - download and print ready
This message has been moderated.

I did not like to use the online version of Starting Forth. Regarding this product, I would have liked to have a keyboard or use the PC as keyboard.
