Matrix E-Blocks

E-blocks are small circuit boards, each of which contains a blocks of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic or embedded system. There are more than 50 separate circuit boards in the range; from simple LED boards to more complex boards like device programmers, Bluetooth boards and TCP/IP boards. These rugged and varied boards are ideal for everyone, from beginners in an educational environment to engineers in the industrial world.

Use of E-blocks is well supported with complementary ranges of software ⟨including PIC, dsPIC, ARM and AVR Arduino IDE, Flowcode⟩, and sensors, as well as datasheets and technical support through Matrix forums.

Why Choose E-blocks?
  • Flexibility through modular design
  • Tight Flowcode integration
  • Rugged and reliable
  • Industry standard technology
  • Range of programmable devices
  • Supported languages
  • Forum support
  • Ideal for rapid prototyping
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • E-blocks Solutions for Educators
  • Real-world Flowcode Applications

E-blocks snap together with D-type connectors to form a wide variety of fully functioning systems, which can be mounted on to a backplane, or used flat on the desk. The ease and speed of construction makes E-blocks ideal for the rapid prototyping of complex electronic systems in industry, and for use by teachers and learners in colleges and universities.

E-blocks solutions are designed for teachers who want a complete off-the-shelf course covering topics in modern digital communications, from RFID to Bluetooth technology. Solutions are made up from E-blocks hardware modules bolted onto strong metal backplanes and supplied in rugged plastic trays for storage and transport. Each course includes worksheets and teacher’s notes.

E-blocks are used as much by engineers in industry as they are used by students and teachers in education. The technology is real, up to date and provides a great base for training the next generation of engineers. E-blocks are tightly integrated with Flowcode. All E-blocks feature in Flowcode as components, meaning it’s easy for Flowcode users to quickly begin programming using the hardware modules – perfect for learners and professional engineers alike.
