Adafruit Prototyping League tackles the Metro M4 #ManufacturingMonday (video)
Get ready for the Metro M4! The Adafruit Prototyping League is at it again, this time manufacturing our first test batch of Metro M4’s. We hand stencil each PCB using a laser cut jig and send the boards through the pick ‘n place one by one. After visual inspection they head into the reflow oven where the solder paste transforms into solid metal joints. Stay tuned for more.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
