Parts wiki! – #openhwsummit

Pt 10387

One of the requests at the Open Hardware Summit was “A parts wiki” And we have one! Think of this as an expert system for picking parts… Almost everyone pretty much picks the same part for a purpose. With lots of practice, you can easily figure out what the ‘most common’ part is but it’s always good to get some help along the way!

Parts wiki!


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. I {heart} the adafruit parts wiki. When it’s 4am and I’m trying to finish up and online order, and I need a jellybaen part number, the wiki has saved my hide a few times.

  2. Wow, that’s NEAT! So we already have a place to start pile things together! Great work! 😉

  3. You are awesome! Thanks for all the effort!

  4. The parts wiki really helped get me moving from the kit stage to building some of my own stuff from scratch. Trying to figure out what parts to order had been holding me back.

    The parts wiki has been one of the best kept secrets. Not that it should be secret.

    So shouldn’t it be linked more prominently from the adafruit and ladyada sites?

    Thanks,
