Welcome to Fritzing Friday! Every Friday, I’ll be doing a wrap up of parts that I’ve added to the
Adafruit Fritzing library. This week, we’ve got 6 components:
First up is the
MCP3008 SPI, 8-channel, 10-bit ADC chip (left). Very useful for adding analog inputs to your Raspberry Pi or expanding the analog capability of the Arduino. Connect our breadboard trimpot (right) to add some physical control.
Next, we’ve got the DS18B20 1-wire temperature sensor in two different forms: the
standard TO-92 form (on the bottom), and the waterproof cable version (top).
To help you get things moving, there’s our
gear-reduction stepper motor.
Finally, we’ve got both versions of our RGB-backlight 2×16 LCD character displays:
positive (top) and negative (bottom).
You can download the
latest version our Fritzing library over at GitHub.
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.
