NEW PRODUCT – 2mm 10 pin socket header (for XBee). XBees are so cute and tiny but if you’re using them in a circuit you’ll be annoyed to find that your classic 0.1″ headers don’t fit them! That’s because they use 2mm spacing instead of 2.54mm spacing. That’s why you need a special socket like this one. This socket has 10 pins, 2mm apart. Check the datasheet (in the Downloads tab) for a detailed diagram. You can find a footprint for the XBee that works with this connector in our Eagle Library (its called XBEE)…
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.
