Prototyping the Circuit Playground #ManufacturingMonday (video)
The Adafruit Prototyping League gets some good practice on the Circuit Playground rev D.
For this batch of prototypes we used a laser cut stainless steel stencil, some 3d printed jigs to hold the PCBs in formation, and our pick ‘n place machines to place all the parts. After a trip through the reflow oven, these new prototypes are ready for testing!
Happy Manufacturing Monday from Adafruit!
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.
