The Great Search: JST Connectors SH and PH #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey #Adafruit @DigiKey @Adafruit
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 (video):
We love JST brand connectors, available in a few different configurations. They are high quality, good value, and are great for a variety of uses. You may see that our sensor breakouts and dev boards come with JST SH and PH connectors. We also see JST SM connectors sometimes on LED strips. Knowing how to get these connectors on a reel will be great for when you want to make your own hardware that works with the greater maker ecosystems!

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.
