PART FINDER FRIDAY! The 6mm tactile switch


Todays partfinder friday part is the 6mm tactile switch. These common switches are a good way to add basic input to your microcontroller. The legs are flexible enough to fit into 0.1″ perfboards and breadboards. Add a pullup and you’re good to go We like the ones with 5mm height the most, enough button to push but not so much its wobbly. Pick up a bunch today!

All this and more, in the part finder.
