What is mCore?
mCore is an easy-to-use main control board specially designed for mBot. Based on Arduino Uno, mCore integrates various onboard sensors, such as buzzer, light sensor, RGB LED, etc., which provides you an easier way to start learning electronics.
• Comes with Arduino and Makeblock Library for easy programming.
• Include various featured sensors, such as buzzer, light sensor, RGB LED, etc.
• On-board USB type B connector design for long-time use.
• Resettable fuse prevents the board from getting burn.
• Four color-labelled RJ25 connectors for easy wiring and expansion with more Arduino sensors.
One Board, Various Sensors
mCore comes with various sensors for different applications, such as buzzer, light sensor, RGB LED, etc. It enables you to learn multiple basic electronic knowledge with this one board.
Durable USB Type B Connector
Instead of using normal Micro USB connector, on-board USB type B connector design can hold the wire firmly and ensure long-time use.
The on-board resettable fuse can help protect the board against over-current faults. When over-current occurs, the resettable fuse will simply reset the operation of the board into normal status.
The RJ25 connectors in mCore is color-labelled, ensuring mCore can be wired in a really quick way. All the wiring is simple and very clean, thus more time can be spent on creating projects.
In addition to connecting to other electronic modules from Makeblock, the four RJ25 interfaces also support connecting to more Arduino sensors, hence you can explore more in electronics' world.
Work with mBlock
mCore for mBot is fully compatible with mBlock which is a graphical programming environment based on Scratch 2.0 Open Source Code. It makes programming projects and interactive applications easier through simply dragging and dropping function blocks.
The Bluetooth module is not included in mCore, you may need to buy it on your own, visit below website to buy: Bluetooth Module for mBot.
