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.


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.

    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.
