A collaboration between Microsoft's IoT division and Adafruit, this pack's the best way to get started using both Windows 10 on your Pi and to start doing some popular projects with the internet of things.
Check out windowsondevices.com for more information on how to set up Windows 10 IoT Core on your Raspberry Pi and download project samples!
As of December 22nd, 2015 this pack now comes with the November, 10th 2015 updated release of Windows 10 for Raspberry Pi. Click here to learn more about the update.
As of March 31st, 2016 this pack now comes with an upgraded Assembled BME280 Temperature, Pressure, and Humidity Sensor and an alternate WiFi Module. This pack is also now certified for use with Microsoft Azure!This pack does NOT come with a Raspberry Pi 2 Computer!
This pack contains:
Adafruit Raspberry Pi B+ Case - Smoke Base / Clear Top - Adafruit's Single Greatest Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Case Ever
Full Size Breadboard - In the past, Adafruit have used the half-size breadboard for a lot of Pi projects - but no longer! WIth 40 pins to break out, you're going to need some space - and that's why you've got a full size breadboard in this pack.
Premium Male/Male Jumper Wires - 20 x 6" (150mm) - These jumper wires are great for making wire harness or jumpering between headers on PCBs. Adafruit have included the longer ones so they work well with the full-size breadboard.
Premium Female/Male 'Extension' Jumper Wires - 20x6" - These jumper wires are handy equivalents of the male/male jumper wires - but with female connectors.
5V 2A Switching Power Supply w/ 6' MicroUSB Cable - The 5V 2A power adapter is the perfect choice for powering your Raspberry Pi B+ with 2 Amps of current output, and an extra long cord.
Assembled Adafruit BME280 Temperature, Pressure & Humidity sensor- The assembled verison of an Adafruit Instant Classic. This breakout board has a powerful BME280 sensor from Bosch that's good for temperature, barometric pressure, AND humidity sensing. This version comes with headers already soldered on.
Assembled TCS34725 RGB Color Sensor - The assembled version of a longstanding Adafruit classic. This RGB Color Sensor with IR filter and White LED comes fully assembled - with headers already soldered on.
MCP3008 - 8 Channel 10-Bit ADC With SPI Interface - Easy to use, SPI enabled chip that's perfect for adding 8 channels of 10-bit analog input to your microcontroller or microcomputer project.
Ethernet Cable - 5 foot long - An ethernet cable.
8GB class 10 SD/MicroSD Memory Card w/ Windows 10 -IOT This SD card comes pre-loaded with all the Windows 10 goodies you can handle.
