FLORA - Wearable electronic platform: Arduino-compatible - v2SKU: ADA-659
FLORA is Adafruit's fully-featured wearable electronics platform.
It's a round, sewable, Arduino-compatible microcontroller designed
to empower amazing wearables projects.
FLORA comes with Adafruit's support, tutorials and projects. Check out dozens of FLORA tutorials on the Adafruit Learning System, with more added every week by Becky Stern, director of wearable electronics, and our dedicated wearables staff.
FLORA has a small but easy to use onboard reset button to reboot
the system. The power supply is designed to be flexible and easy to
use. There is an onboard polarized 2 JST battery connector with
protection schottky diode for use with external battery packs from
3.5v to 16v DC in. Can be used with LiIon/LiPoly, LiFe, alkaline or
rechargeable NiMh/NiCad batteries of any size. The FLORA
does not have
a LiPo charger included by design, this allows safe use with
multiple battery types and reduces risk of fire as it is not
recommended to charge these batteries on fabric.
FLORA has onboard power switch connected to 2A power FET for safe and efficient battery on/off control, so you can power quite a bit without burning out your switch. The FLORA has an onboard 3.3v 250mA regulator with a protection diode and USB fuse so that the microcontroller voltage is consistent and can power common 3.3v modules and sensors.
