Extend and expand your Circuit Playground projects with a bolt on Perma-Proto that lets you connect solderable circuits in a sturdy and reliable fashion. This PCB looks just like a solderless breadboard but has permanently affixed M3 standoffs that act as mechanical and electrical connections. Solder to the gold-plated traces to create your custom invention!
Each pad of the Circuit Playground has a large oval pad you can connect to, and in the center is a blue-marked Ground rail and red-marked 3.3V rail. The center has side-connected groups, they’re marked in black on top. Once you’re done you can screw on/off the Gizmo as many times as you like.
Comes with a PCB that has pre-soldered standoffs attached, and 12x M3 screws for attachment. Fits both Classic and Express Circuit Playgrounds, but the oval pad markings match the CPX pad naming.
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.
