What’s in a bin? is a new series highlighting one of the multitudinous bins of stuff that Ladyada uses to design, research, and refine Adafruit products. For this installment’s bin, we’re taking a journey into Adafruit’s past with…
PCBs! Five iterations of Ice Tube PCBs – Including the original PCB that was etched in house!
Old Soviet Datasheets
Is there a future for the Ice Tube?
Maybe! We’ve been trying out different versions of the ice tube clock kit with different VFD tubes – but haven’t settled on a version we’re happy with. Keep checking adafruit.com/new and maybe, some day, we’ll have a brand new Ice Tube Clock Kit.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
