Cut tape resistor kits are great for prototyping

If you’re doing any surface mount work, you should look into these resistor kits from Digikey. You can get them in any package (these are the 0805) and for ~$60 they’re a great deal. The compact box has strips of 50 each of 1 ohm to 1 Mohm 5% resistors. I’ve used them extensively when prototyping designs and reworking boards – and have the 0805, 0603 and 1206 sets.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Sure Electronics (www.sure-electronics.com) carries something “similar” for those on a budget, although their kits tend to be 50x100pcs, and not major-branded. But they’re $4.49 or under $10 if you want to them in their own condos. They have 1206 and 0805, and I believe they have at least one capacitor kit too.

    For example, http://www.sureelectronics.net/goods.php?id=148.

    I haven’t done business with Sure (yet). Just putting this out there. 1/12 the cost, or 1/5 with housing.

  2. Or alternatively, this (one of these) just showed up at SeeedStudio, http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/0805-smt-resistor-sample-book-8496-pcs-in-177-values-p-570.html and http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/0805-smt-capacitor-sample-book-4416-pcs-in-92-values-p-571.html.

    Almost looks like samples kits straight from Yageo. Total passives bondage (ok, bindage).
