The Great Search: What to do when the part is out of stock? #TheGreatSearch @DigiKey @adafruit
The Great Search is a new series of videos (playlist) focused on searching the Digi-Key catalog to narrow down to the parts you want to buy. This week’s video:
We were purchasing some parts on Digi-Key and discovered that the part we needed was not in stock! Luckily, there are lots of alternatives. This week we’ll go over some of the techniques we use to find alternative parts so manufacturing is not halted!
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
