NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit FPC Stick – 20 Pin 0.5mm/1.0mm Pitch Adapter – Connect to 0.5mm, 1.0mm and even some 2.0mm pitch connectors that you may run across with an FPC stick. We designed this for use in house, to quickly connect to FPCs we need to test. But we also thought it might be useful for our customers. On either side is a 20 pin 0.5 or 1.0mm pitch connector with long pads and one very long ‘mechanical’ pad. Each pad is broken out to a 20-pin long 0.1″ spaced header. It can accommodate most ZIF and snap connectors and will make prototyping much easier on you!
Each order comes with a single double-sided PCB stick (one side 0.5mm the other 1.0mm), no header or other connectors included.

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.
