The FLORA is small (1.75" diameter, weighing 4.4 grams). We wanted the smallest possible board for our wearable platform. In the FLORA family we also have the best stainless steel threads, sensors, GPS modules and chainable LED pixels, perfect accessories for the FLORA mainboard

Product Description

Flora

The FLORA has built-in USB support. Built in USB means you plug it in to program it, it just shows up - all you need is a USB cable, no additional purchases are needed! Works with Mac, Windows, Linux, any USB cable works great. Currently the PCB comes with a mini B connector but future versions may change to microUSB. The FLORA has USB HID support, so it can act like a mouse, keyboard, MIDI, etc. to attach directly to cellphones.

The FLORA has onboard power switch connected to 2A power FET for safe and efficient battery on/off control. Often FETs are not included in other designs that leads to switch failure as small SMT switches are rated for only 20mA current use. The FLORA has an onboard 3.3v 100mA regulator with protection diode and USB fuse so that power is consistent and can power common 3.3v modules and sensors.

There are 14 sewing tap pads for attachment and electrical connections. Data buses are interleaved with power and ground pads for easy module and sensor attachments without worrying about overlapping traces which are not possible with conductive thread.

The FLORA comes with Adafruit's support, tutorials and projects. Adafruit has dozens of projects that will be released with the FLORA in 2013 and has staff 100% dedicated to creating tutorials and projects for use with the FLORA.
