6Mmtactpack Lrg

NEW PRODUCT – Tactile switch (6mm) x 10 pack – Little clicky switches are standard input on electronic projects. These work best in a PCB but can be used on a solderless breadboard as shown in this tutorial. The pins are normally open (disconnected) and when the button is pressed they are momentarily closed. They come in a pack of 10, they’re pretty handy so you’ll want to keep them around. You can find an EAGLE cad package for these in switch-omron:B3F-10XX

  1. I think I remember soldering some of these in my x0xb0x 😉
