Hardware Assembly

If you haven't yet assembled your Qwiic Shield, now would be the time to head on over to that tutorial. Depending on the microcontroller and shield you've chosen, your assembly may be different, but here's a handy link to the Qwiic Shield for Arduino and Photon Hookup Guide to get you started!

With the shield assembled, SparkFun's new Qwiic environment means that connecting the sensor could not be easier. Just plug one end of the Qwiic cable into the Qwiic UV Sensor, the other into the Qwiic Shield and you'll be ready to upload a sketch and figure out how much sunscreen you need to put on to keep yourself from turning into a lobster. It seems like it's too easy to use, but that's why we made it that way!
