PART FINDER FRIDAY – SD card connectors

-1-7

Dataloggers, display and music players all need to store a lot of data, way more than the internal EEPROM of a microncontroller. You might also need to easily move these big files between a microcontroller project and a computer.
The best way to do this is to use camera/MP3 player flash cards like SD or microSD.

The larger SD card holder is not a push-to-eject type but its by far the easiest we’ve found for soldering. The smaller microSD slot is push-to-eject type but tougher to solder. We have EagleCAD footprints for both in our Eagle library. And we have a handy microSD card breakout board that you can use with any microcontroller


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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

    Woot! I was looking for these the other day. Now for a micro that does wireless and native plug & play (is that possible on a chip?) USB. Some dirt cheap gyros would be nice too.
