NEW PRODUCTS – 0.1″ 36-Pin & 2×36-Pin Straight & Right-Angle Headers – Socket (female) header is like the duct tape of electronics. It’s great for connecting things together, soldering to perf-boards or PCBs to allow 22AWG wire or male header to connect, etc. We go through these gals real fast, and thought that given how handy they are, we’d offer them in a pack of five!
right angle female, 5 x dual row female, or 5 x dual-row right angle female 36-pin long headers, 0.1″ pitch, that can be stacked next to each other on a 0.1″ grid. They aren’t ‘break-away’ style but can be cut manually with diagonal cutters or thin hacksaw – we suggest to sacrifice one socket connector by cutting in the middle of it. They’re even gold plated so they wont oxidize!
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.
