NEW PRODUCT – SMT 0603 Resistor and Capacitor Book – 3725 pieces
NEW PRODUCT – SMT 0603 Resistor and Capacitor Book – 3725 pieces. Always have the right SMT components at your hand with this awesome 0603 Resistor and Capacitor book set! This book has nice translucent pages filled with cut tape 0603 components, sorted, labeled and ready to go. This book has 63 5% resistor values, 3025 parts and 17 capacitor values, 700 parts. The nice thing is that you get a good distribution of the resistors, with more 1K and 10KΩ and fewer of the really high values.

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.

Will you ever be selling the individual plastic sheets and notebook without the resistors & capacitors?
@dave – not at this time, but we will consider it as we see how these do!

Very handy. I’ve been looking for these sorts of collections on Ebay. This is a nice set and nicely organized.
In for 1, these are a great idea.
Now you just need an assortment of SMD inductors to make this a complete RCL book. Perhaps an ‘upgrade’ chapter? I’d buy it.
Oops, I mean ‘need to add an’
@K Schaef, traces that can be cut and then later bridged with solder works well if you have ONE standard config. The Adafruit FTDI friend is a good example, it’s available in one config, but the target user is free to make changes. This model just doesn’t scale well in production where there are multiple configurations offered. Further, solder blobs are a poor choice for reliability in a mass produced product.
The FTDI friend is simple enough that multiple versions of the board could be produced. A larger product it might not be economical, or a just in time manufacturing model means stocking the boards unpopulated and delivering 100s or 1000s or ten 1000s in the configuration requested simply by loading different configurations on the pick and place to populate the correct jumpers for the required configurations.
For someone at home, this doesn’t make much of a difference, but if you’re prototyping for a big product it does. 0603 is a bit small, but a larger part could also get across another trace if you need too.
