Most electronic products sold in the US have an FCC ID, meaning that the manufacturer has gone through a series of testing procedures to make sure that the device is compliant with existing norms. One side effect of this requirement is that some of this information is publicly accessible on the FCC’s website. If you’re wondering what’s inside a product but you don’t want to take apart yourself or don’t actually own one but do have the FCC ID, you may be able to find some photos of the interior and some helpful information on the HW itself by looking the device up on the FCC’s FCC ID Search Form. Details on how here.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
