Digi-Key showcases some great Adafruit products @digikey
Digi-Key made a great new video showing off some of our favorite Adafruit products. Check out their video description below and don’t forget to view our selection over at the Digi-Key site!
The Arduino 2.8 inch capacitive touch screen shield (Adafruit 1651) features a 240×320 resolution, single touch shield. The touch shield require no additional wires or soldering, making integration quick and easy. Using Adafruit’s example library code helps designers to get up and running quickly. In Digi-Key’s example, Arduino’s touch shield can be used to control each color and individual of a Neopixal ring.
NeoPixel rings are ready-made, RGB, single wire addressable LED rings that can help you simplify your project. NeoPixel products are also available as flexible, weather proof, RGB LED, linear lighting strips. These strips are available in one meter lengths. Typical application uses for NeoPixel LEDs include jewelry, timepieces, and navigation displays.
SMT adapter breakout boards allow quick board level prototyping for components that are not available in DIP/through hole technology.
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.
