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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
