ST Educational Board (ST EDU)


Product Description

The ST-00101 ST EDU is an ideal project board that integrates the Arduino Uno (based on the ATmega 328 microcontroller and the ATmega16U2 as the USB-to-serial converter), an easy-to-use breadboard prototyping area and a power management circuit for charging two 18650-size rechargeable batteries.

Product Features

  • Microcontroller: Atmega328
  • 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, 6 servo/sensor ports and a reset button
  • USB connector for programming or charging the batteries
  • Holds two rechargeable/replaceable 3.7 volt Li-ion 18650-size cells, and the batteries can be charged from a 7.0-9.0v AC-to-DC adapter or a 5v USB port (without taking them out of the board)
  • Multiple LEDs provide power indicators, communication indicator, charge readiness information and low battery indicator
  • Over-current charge protection prevents harm to batteries
  • Breadboard and power/signal headers for handy prototyping area
  • 3-position power switch for powering the headers only or powering header + X9 port
  • Jumper for power selection of X9 header: regulated (5V) or unregulated (Vin)
  • High current output capabilities for robotics applications (up to 1 Amp at 5 Volts)

USB Cable not included. This board is compatible with our USB cable ST-00049 and you can order it here: http://shopsimplytronics.com/black-usb-cable-1-2m/

Batteries not included. If you want to operate this board with rechargeable batteries, you will need two 18650-size rechargeable batteries per board (must be button top). You can order the batteries on this page: http://shopsimplytronics.com/st-18650-li-ion-battery-3000mah-3-7v/

The ST EDU will recharge the batteries while they are inserted in the battery holder (you don't need to remove the batteries to recharge them). There are two options for charging the batteries:

  • You can use a USB cable to connect the board to a computer or any USB charger (not included in the kit), or
  • For faster charge, you can connect a 7 to 9 V power supply (not included in the kit) to the Power In jack.

  1. Excellent replacement for the Board of education from Parallax 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2015

    I bought 12 ST EDU boards to replace the Board of Education from Parallax in the Boe Bot for my class that learned PBasic and now they will learn "C".
    The boards work perfect and they high quality and one of the things I like the most is the circuitry they have for using two rechargeable 18650 batteries.
    The boards fit perfectly into our boebots and they are pretty cool.
