NEW PRODUCT – IC hook set (9 pcs). When alligator clips and even scope probes are too large, IC hooks come to the rescue! These fine clips are very nice, and come in a set of 9 colors (black, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, gray). They provide a nice strong grip on SOICs, TQFPs, anything with 0.6mm pin pitch or larger. The hook is made of strong gold-plated ‘piano wire’, and there are angle connectors so that you can slip these onto your Saleae Logic probe cable (to replace the all-black ones) or any 0.1″ socket jumper cables. These are a little more expensive than low-cost hooks but we’ve compared them and found that these work much better at gripping small pins
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.
