Tinkerers, hobbyists, students and enthusiasts form the backbone of the tech-influenced DIY community known as the Maker Movement. Makers use various open-source electronic platforms as they develop interactive products ranging from robotics and drones to arts, crafts and musical instruments. Rapid prototyping of innovative projects using open-source electronic platforms typically requires basic connectors and cable assemblies.

Samtec has developed expansion connector accessory kits for three of the most popular platforms:

  • Arduino Uno R3 Expansion Connector Accessory Kit
  • Arm® Mbed™ Application Board Expansion Connector Accessory Kit
  • Raspberry Pi Expansion Connector Accessory Kit
