This is the second in my 3-part vlog mini-series on high quality PCB manufacturing. In these vlogs I will show the specialized tools and equipment that you will need to make your own high quality PCB’s from scratch, with step by step demonstrations of each stage – from rendering and checking the artwork, to applying the resist to copper clap boards, to etching, to drilling the PCB’s, to component placement and soldering, and finally to defluxing and finishing.
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.
