Manufacturing Monday 4-4-16 @adafruit #adafruit (video). Start your monday right with a new prototype+tester PCB panel. I like to tile up about 10 PCBs and testers and send them to Gold Phoenix for their “155 sq inch + 1 day rush” prototype service. They’ll do plated slots and route out each PCB outline (for more $) which I like, as well as do non-green soldermask. With the rush service I send the PCBs out monday before 4pm, i’ll usually get them on Friday morning. Altogether, I’ll receive 3 or more sets of this 5.3×8.4 panel (155 / 45 sq inches), all routed out, for about $400 on friday. It’s my one R&D splurge, but I think it’s worth it – works out to about $10 per PCB, $2.50 per sq inch and the quality is pretty good for protos all in a week! – Ladyada
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
