Selecting the Right Resistor Type for Your Project
Following-up from the previous Capacitor Selection Guide, the Octopart blog also has this handy guide for selecting the appropriate resistor type for your project, from SMD and through-hole to wirewound, thermistors, and potentiometers. No matter how well you know resistors, posts like this are always a fun read!
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.
