Last week the Octopart homepage got it’s first major update in over 5 years! The new homepage now features quick search forms that make it easy to perform parametric searches of capacitors and resistors. New large product icons highlight some of Octopart’s best features and make it easy to jump to the BOM tool or API documentation from the homepage. Finally, the facet links make it easy to start a new search with a preselected distributor, manufacturer or category. We are excited to expand and improve the quick search forms and would love to hear your thoughts on what tabs and fields you would like to see!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
