Die Shot Art of the Fairchild BSP52 Darlington Transistor (NPN)
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – the die shot is equivalent to modern art! (And sometimes a Rorschach test.) The work of art & engineering that we’re able to fit inside various package types is incredible, and when zoomed in up close like Zeptobars does so well it is its own art to admire! Originally contained in a SOT-223 package that itself only measures 6.5mm x 3.56mm (x 1.6mm high) the die inside is a mere 781×780 µm 😮
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.
