Join W0z & ADABOT and learn all about the seemingly simple, yet ever-useful Diode!
Diodes are the “one-way street” of electronics, allowing electrons to pass in one direction while preventing them from moving in reverse. Diodes have lots of important uses in the world of electronics – some can even produce light!
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.
