Development Tools

 

mQSPARK™

mQSPARK is a plug-and-play development kit for rapid prototyping of IoT solutions. The development board is designed as a USB module that is easily plugged into your laptop to configure and power your solution.

Once configured, the board can be connected to a power bank for mobility. The mQSpark works with the open source Arduino IDE platform, which allows developers to tap into a huge development community to speed up the process. Additionally, the mQSpark is compatible with the suite of Grove sensors, which have easy-to-use standardized connectors.

The mQSpark includes a development board and up to 5 Grove connectors:
