NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit 50 pin 0.5mm pitch FPC Adapter
NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit 50 pin 0.5mm pitch FPC Adapter – Connect to those pesky 0.5mm pitch connectors that you may run across with an FPC stick. We designed this for use in house, to quickly connect to 50pin 0.5mm pitch flex cables we need to test. But we also thought it might be useful for our customers. There’s a 50-pin long connector on top, and we have one very long ‘mechanical’ pad. Since the pad extends along the entire length you can use any size 0.5mm pitch connector you wish, we seem to bump into 40 and 50 pin the most. Each pad is broken out to a 25-pin long 0.1″x0.1″ spaced header. One side is doubled on the opposite side to make it bread-board friendly. It can accommodate most ZIF and snap connectors and will make prototyping much easier on you!
Each order comes with a single PCB stick, 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.
