Having my reflow solder oven finished, I couldn’t wait to see how far can I challenge it with complex circuit boards and tiny components. I decided to build a system with components that are tricky to solder, such as BGA and QFN packages. Not interested in designing the whole circuit on my own, I looked for an existing solution and found a good-looking one: an embedded Linux computer by Henrik Forsten.
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.
