Distributor Spotlight Series – Chicago Electronic Distributors @Chicagoedist

Welcome to the Adafruit Distributor Spotlight series! This week we have Chicago Electronic Distributors up! Chicago Electronic Distributors became an Adafruit reseller in March of 2013 and since then, have purchased over 200,000 items from Adafruit!

 

Below is a little background on Chicago Electronic Distributors:

Established in February 2013, Chicago Electronic Distributors is celebrating its 5th anniversary.  Founded by Craig LeMoyne, a Mechanical Engineer who has always liked tinkering with electronics, the company started out selling configured Raspberry Pi systems.  We wanted to make the Raspberry Pi more accessible to a wider audience.  Having played around with some Adafruit products, we thought that their line would be a great fit for our new business.

What started as a side business is now a real company, employing 4 team members.  We have a great group of customers, from individual makers to universities to Fortune 500 companies.  We have added many wonderful suppliers through the years, but Adafruit is near and dear to us. There is nothing more fun than doing a build based on the Adafruit learning system. We are particularly excited about CircuitPython and all of the new products coming out 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, 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.
