In breadboard basics 1, we looked at how a breadboard is structured. In this post, we are going to look at how to move from a schematic to a breadboard, and the step-by-step decisions that would be involved in doing so.
We’re going to build a simple audio amplifier! The aim of this post is to:
1) Give you the skills to work confidently with a breadboard
2) Give you the skills to read simple electronic schematics
3) Give you the skills to translate a simple schematic onto a breadboard for real-world use
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.
