Fritzing Friday — Adafruit @Fritzing Library Updates

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.

 

 


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
