The FLORA is small (1.75″ in diameter, weighing 4.4 grams). The FLORA family also has the best stainless steel threads, sensors, GPS modules, and chainable LED NeoPixels, perfect accessories for the FLORA main board. The FLORA has built-in USB support. Built-in USB means you plug it in to program it, and the modified version of the Arduino IDE so Mac & Windows users can get started fast – or with the new 1.6.4+ Arduino IDE, it takes only a few seconds to add Flora-support. The FLORA has USB HID support, so it can act like a mouse or keyboard to attach directly to computers.
FLORA has a small but easy-to-use onboard reset button to reboot the system. The power supply is designed to be flexible and easy to use. There is an onboard polarized 2 JST battery connector with a protection Schottky diode for use with external battery packs from 3.5v to 16v DC in. Can be used with LiIon/LiPoly, LiFe, alkaline, or rechargeable NiMh/NiCad batteries of any size. The FLORA does not have a LiPo charger included by design, this allows safe use with multiple battery types and reduces the risk of fire as it is not recommended to charge these batteries on fabric.
- FLORA is fabric-friendly and beginner-friendly.
- 4 indicator LEDs and an RGB NeoPixel for even more colorful lighting.
- Easily drive 50 pixels directly from the onboard power supply or up to 500 pixels with a 5V supply.
- Can power common 3.3v modules and sensors.
- Perfect for beginners.
