Andy’s acrylic case for this Nanocounter might just seem like a regular case, but it’s the reasons why he chose to design his case the way he did that’s especially interesting:
My main concern with the case design was how to deal with the force exerted by repeated connection and disconnection of cables from the BNC connectors. With just the bare PCB I can grip the back of the BNC connector housing while manipulating the connector thereby preventing force being exerted on the PCB through the BNC connector solder joints.
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.
