NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit Flex Perma-Proto – Half-sized Breadboard Flex-PCB
NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit Flex Perma-Proto – Half-sized Breadboard Flex-PCB – Make your next project super-flexy with a prototyping board that can twist and bend. We took our lovely classic perma-proto design and had it made from incredibly thin polyamide film. It’s extremely bendable, and you can cut it easily with scissors. It has a bend radius of 1cm or better (you can also crease it but that might break a trace if you crease a trace) and you can solder any components to the pads. Sensors? Wearables? Tubular-tronics? We have no idea what people are going to use it for but we know it is going to be awesome.
The flex PCB is really floppy, so you may need to support it if you solder electronic components on, it won’t stay ‘straight’ on its own unless given some sort of physical support.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
