Qwiic Pro Micro USB-C (ATmega32U4) Hookup Guide
The SparkFun Qwiic Pro Micro USB C is a really cool, little development board. It's an Arduino-compatible microcontroller, micro-sized, and it accomplishes with one single chip what old Arduino Unos, Duemilanoves, and Diecimeillas could never dream of: true USB functionality. In this tutorial, we'll check out the updated Qwiic Pro Micro and go through a few examples to get you started!
To follow along with this tutorial, you will need the following materials at a minimum. You may not need everything though depending on what you have. Add it to your cart, read through the guide, and adjust the cart as necessary.
You will need a soldering iron, solder, and general soldering accessories for a secure connection when using the plated through hole pads.
Depending on your setup, you may want to use IC hooks for a temporary connection. However, you will want to solder header pins to connect devices to the plated through holes for a secure connection.
For those that want to take advantage of the Qwiic enabled devices, you'll want to grab a Qwiic cable.
If you aren't familiar with the Qwiic system, we recommend reading here for an overview if you decide to take advantage of the Qwiic connector.
