Another instant classic video from Steven “Rimstar” Dufresne – this time it’s a primer (and accompanying webpage) all about headers (male & female) commonly found on SBCs & microcontroller boards like the Pi & Arduino. I’m definitely going to add this to my own ‘starter pack’ of links to provide to people who are just getting started with prototyping and tinkering! (Oh and thanks to Rimstar for mentioning Adafruit throughout his video and our collection of headers, which can conveniently be located here.)
Working with pin headers: how to solder headers, cutting headers, breakaway headers, both male and female headers are covered.
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.
