NEW PRODUCTS – SMT Test Sockets! TQFP-44, TQFP-32 and TQFP-48 breakouts!
You know those ZIF sockets we have for DIP chips? Well these are just like that but for SMT parts! Yeah, that’s right, now you can program and test out your favorite new parts in TQFP-44, TQFP-32 or TQFP-48 packages. Simply open the latch, place the chip in carefully and then close the top over it. The chip is held securely against gold ‘fingers’ in the socket.
The socket is soldered onto a pair of PCBs that turn it into, essentially, a DIP with 0.6″ spacing that can be breadboarded fairly easily.
The test socket is a high quality, Japanese construction from Yamaichi
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.
