Custom PCB Silkscreens: Feather RP2040 in Adobe Illustrator
Small things can make a big impact. The custom silkscreens on many Adafruit PCB’s aren’t just for show — well-defined labels make a board easier to read and navigate! It’s a careful process of maximizing legibility while getting everything to fit, because the components take precedence. Here the Adafruit Feather RP2040 is being treated to nice, crisp fonts and graphics.
This is a follow-up to an earlier post and video, where the circuit board was translated from Eagle CAD to Adobe Illustrator.
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.
