It’s @Fritzing Friday: PWM Drivers, OLEDs, and More!

 

Earlier this week, I did a round up of Fritzing parts I added over the weekend. Since then, I’ve added a few more cool boards our growing Fritzing Library that I wanted to share. It’s also Friday, and I’m contractually obligated to bring you awesome stuff on Friday, so here we go! 🙂

First up, the PCA9685 16×12-bit Servo PWM board (above), which is capable of driving up to 16 servo motors at once. All those motors need a good amount of current, so it’s best to use a separate power supply — easily added with our 2.1mm-to-terminal block adapter (above, top). The PCA9685 Fritzing part behaves just like the real part — all the GND and V+ lines are bussed together, as are the I2C terminals on either end.

Next, we’ve got our high-contrast, 128×32-pixel monochrome OLED displays, available in I2C and SPI versions.

Finally, from left to right, our ADXL335 Accelerometer breakout, our MAX31855 breakout with thermocouple, and our MCP4725 12-bit DAC board keep the data flowing in and out of your circuit.

As always, you can download our Fritzing library at GitHub!


8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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