NEW PRODUCT – Professional IC Extraction Tool – You take your soldering seriously, so you deserve a serious IC extractor tool. We purposefully never carried the cheap bent-sheet IC extractors, and if you’ve ever used one you know why. They should call them “IC try-to-extract-but-end-up-bending-half-the-pins-ors” and even with a lot of experience they’re just a pain. The Japanese made IC extractor is an exception, it’s got ground tips that can wedge in there to lift the chip. Instead of a painful hand-grip, you can use the thumb-wheel to dial in the exact right size.
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.
