PART FINDER FRIDAY! PIEZO DISCS!

Fetch-3

Beep, squeek and alert with these 1/2″ piezo discs. Piezo discs flex when voltages are applied, and that flexing can be turned into ‘clicks’ and ‘beeps’. You only need 3V+ to get these going, feed a squarewave in at 440 Hz and you’ve got an A. These piezos are our favorites and go into all our kits. They’ve got long legs so they are easy to plug into a breadboard. For the loudest tones, keep around 2000-4000 Hz. For even louder beeps, invert the squarewave onto both pins to get ‘double’ the volume. They’re great for making an alarm clock!

ALL THIS AND MORE – IN THE PART FINDER!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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. They also make great force/impact sensors (like for an electronic drum kit)… just gotta get the ones without the plastic on em (or be willing to cut them out of their enclosure).
