The Great Search: Common Through-Hole Resistors @adafruit @digikey #deskofladyada #TheGreatSearch
The Great Search is a new series of videos focused on searching the Digi-Key catalog to narrow down to the parts you want to buy. This week’s video:
What’s Brown Black Orange and Gold and is an essential part of your parts box? The common 10K 5% thru-hole resistor! Beginners will want a box of these low cost, but ultra-useful parts – we’ll show you how to quickly locate all sorts of common resistors as well as tips on telling the variants apart
Eink, E-paper, Think Ink – Collin shares six segments pondering the unusual low-power display technology that somehow still seems a bit sci-fi – http://adafruit.com/thinkink
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.
