Features

The Maker, fully programmable, small, compact and designed with 12 innovative features, more than any other product in this class; Maker captures the imagination, of tomorrow’s innovator, providing endless possibilities for endless discovery.

INNOVATIVE FEATURES
IBTIKAR MAKER

Sound Sensor

Sound Sensor

The sound sensor can detect a clap/sound near the board and reads values between 0 and 1023.
Mini Speaker

Mini Speaker

The mini speaker is a magnetic buzzer that can play tones, this is done by controlling the frequency going through the buzzer. Different frequencies produce different tones.
25 LED GRID

25 LED GRID

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and you see them used everywhere. The Maker has 25 programmable LEDs in a grid formation, which can be controlled individually to create patterns, displays, text, numbers and images. There is also an extra programmable LED on the back side.
Light Sensor

Light Sensor

The light sensor is an analog sensor that measures the ambient light in the environment. The sensor gives a value between 0 and 1023.
Temperature Sensor

Temperature Sensor

The temperature sensor allows the Maker to detect and measure the current ambient temperature in the environment, in degrees Celcius.
Accelerometer

Accelerometer

The accelerometer is located in the middle of the board and is used to measure static acceleration, like gravity. It can be used to measure shake, tilt and free fall as well as detect the sudden start and stop of acceleration.
Neo Pixels

Neo Pixels

The Maker has 10 RGB LEDS. RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue. Unlike the other LEDs that cannot change their colour, the RGB LEDs can be programmed to display any colour by combining the colours. It is as if each RGB LED is made up of three smaller LEDs that can be blended.
Push Buttons

Push Buttons

There are two buttons on the front side of the Maker, labelled A -left and B- right. You can program the board to detect when the buttons are pressed or released. There is also a third button for resetting.
Connector Pins

Connector Pins

There are 14 connector pins on the outer edge of the Maker; 6 of these can supply power to external input/output modules while 8 can be interfaced with extra input/output modules, allowing for projects using extra modules.
XBEE Socket

XBEE Socket

The XBEE socket allows for Wi Fi or Bluetooth expansion. This is a useful option if you want to wirelessly control the Maker or read from it. You can use your phone or tablet to connect to the Maker.
Battery Connector

Battery Connector

The battery connector serves as an external power source using batteries. You can use it to power the Maker when the USB cable is not connected.
USB Interface

USB Interface

The USB interface allows you to connect the Maker to your computer using a USB cable. You can then program the Maker, send and receive data and power the board.
