Fritzing is an open-source initiative to support designers, artists, researchers and hobbyists to work creatively with interactive electronics. We are creating a software and website in the spirit of Processing and Arduino, developing a tool that allows users to document their prototypes, sharethem with others, teach electronics in a classroom, and to create a pcb layout for professional manufacturing.
Fritzing started out as a publicly funded research project from 2007-2009. Since 2010 development has relied on the community of users and supporters. Adafruit is not a giant company (yet) but we try our best to support communities, orgs, schools, companies, events, people and products that share our values & goals. From sponsoring events like the Open hardware summit to tools like Fritzing, it’s part of our mission to help and celebrate open source. If you like Fritzing, please considering supporting them as well!
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.
