While it does still assume some understanding of electronics, this handy little application report gives explanations of most of the common terms that you’ll come across reading other datasheets, app notes, user manuals, etc. Think of it like TI’s attempt and an EE Rosetta Stone. What the heck is a Schottky Clamping Diode? p.20! Tsu and Th (setup time and hold time)? p.55. It’s not exciting cover to cover reading, but if you’re trying to decipher a cryptic datasheet this wonderful app report contains a lot of information in a comparitively concise package. Grab it now!
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.
