Fritzing Friday: Power Switch Tail, Battery Packs, Amplifiers and Components!

This week the Adafruit Fritzing library grew to over 60 parts and is now over 1MB in size — considering it’s made up entirely of compressed XML files, that’s pretty cool.

I added a bunch of cool parts this week, starting with the Power Switch Tail:

 

Also added were 3xAAA and 4xAA switchable battery holders, with and without JST connectors (bare wire versions shown below):

 

Finally, a couple of breakouts and components:

 

From left to right, our breadboard-able 2.1mm DC barrel jack, the MAX98306 Class-D Stereo Amplifier*, the STP16NF06 Hi-current N-MOSFET, the INA219 current monitor, and finally the FTDI Friend!

You can always find the latest version of our Fritzing Library on GitHub!

Happy Friday!

*the speakers are part of the standard Fritzing library, used here for illustrative purposes.


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.

    That`s a great library!!

    I`m using it to make some documentation and wiring instructions on my robotic kits.

    I`m also missing the adafruit motor shield. I tried to create my own, but no luck on that.
