NEW GUIDE: Breadboards for Beginners – Diagrams, tips and tricks to take you from beginner to brilliant
From split rails to avoiding stranded core wire, from wire wrapping to no-rails tiny breadboards, learn the ins and outs (quite literally) of breadboarding with this Breadboards for Beginners Learn Guide. The history and patent behind the component is also discussed, along with evolutionary developments in its design and use over the years.
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.

A really excellent beginners guide. As someone who’s fooling around with Arduino /Maple Leaf Mini with absolutely no electrical engineering or electronics education this was just what I needed. So many things, I didn’t know or understand:
– Why put caps on the power rails – power smoothing I am guessing.
– Exactly what size single core wire was required – now I know!
– And the fritzing/planner – pure genius! Wish I’d known about that sooner.
