NEW PRODUCT – “Wire Wrap” Thin Prototyping & Repair Wire – 200m 30AWG Blue
NEW PRODUCT – “Wire Wrap” Thin Prototyping & Repair Wire – 200m 30AWG Blue – This stuff is called “wire-wrap wire” because it used to be used for wire-wrapping high-speed digital circuits on a special kind of contact board. It’s pretty rare to see wire-wrapping in these days of low-cost PCB fabrication but the wire is still really handy for prototyping work. It’s extremely thin (30 AWG!) so your wiring wont get bulky, and it is just stiff enough to hold its shape around corners. It’s most commonly used for SMT rework (‘oh man i swapped two pads’) or repair (‘ok let’s bridge this via to that via to fix a broken trace’) but it’s also great when you need to get a signal from here to there through a small space.

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.
