NEW TUTORIAL: Wires and connectors

Wires are the electrically conductive connections between the elements in electronic circuitry. Designing your project or following many Adafruit guides, there are wires interconnecting different parts. Theoretically, these are zero resistance, perfect connections. On the breadboard, they are nice colored jumper wires. In practice, the designer has a many possible choices of how to connect electronic parts together.
Connections may be broken down into three categories:

  1. Wires
  2. Cables
  3. Connectors on the ends of wires

Adafruit carries a wide variety of materials to help the hobbyist wire projects.

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.
