Adafruit forum member Alberto Piganti (pighixx) is well known for his clear and easy to read circuit and pinout diagrams and his “ABC” Arduino Basic Connections website. Now he has started an Inidiegogo campaign to collect these diagrams together into “Arduino Basic Connections – The Book“. He was kind enough to send me the preview copy pictured above.
Arduino Basic Connections is a compact book – it won’t take up much space on your bench. But the well-laid out color-coded graphics on heavyweight coated (coffee proof!) paper are easy to follow. The cover folds out to reveal pinout diagrams for the Arduino and Atmega processors. The rest of the book is divided into 6 sections with color coded tabs for: References, Inputs, Outputs, Audio, Displays and Advanced.
I can see this book will get a lot of use. I’ve already signed up for a couple more copies for my robot team!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
