Fritzing Library Update: Adafruit Pi Plate Prototyping Board for @Raspberry_Pi #Piday
Fritzing makes it easy to virtually breadboard anything you can imagine, and helps you optimize your breadboard wiring so that everything is neat and clean before you build it physically. To make it easier to prototype your designs on our Pi Plate board, we’ve added this Pi Plate part to our Fritzing Library.
The Fritzing Pi Plate is designed to behave exactly the same as the real board. All the tie points on the stripboard section are bussed together, and the protoboard section can be wired any way you like — you can even create simulated solder jumpers. Each of the terminal blocks is connected to the appropriate board tie points, and you can run wires from the term blocks as well. In addition, there are four ‘user’ term blocks (in the upper right corner of the image above) that you can use for anything you like!
Note: we’ve also made some minor changes to other parts in the library, so it’s suggested that you remove the old version of library from Fritzing before installing the new one.
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.
