MANUFACTURING MONDAY: HOW TO – Separate digital RGB LED strips on the overlapping section ends
This mini-tutorial is a little on the advanced side, its going to show how to separate our digital RGB LED strips on the overlapping section ends. All the strips are made of 1/2meter long sections. Between every 2 LEDs you can cut off the flex PCB at the dotted lines. However, every 1/2 meter you cannot just cut the strip but must pull apart the soldered sections. Its not terribly hard but worth documenting!
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.
