Digi-Key and Adafruit celebrate four years of business! @digikey @makerio
Time sure does fly when you’re doing great work.
Ladyada had been using Digi-Key products for years and Adafruit had been using them as a supplier from its earliest days, so it was a big moment for Adafruit when Digi-Key became a distributor. And still, when we first made the announcement we couldn’t have imagined the kind of projects we’d end up doing together.
The list goes on, but suffice it to say that between these, Digi-Key’s AdaBox involvement, and all our other efforts, the two companies have worked together to provide a ton of great products and learning content to the maker community.
Adafruit is looking forward to the many years ahead as we come up with even more exciting and revolutionary offerings for our community and customers.
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.
