Rotating LED Warning Light with Adjustable Volume Buzzer Alarm: THE REACTOR’S MELTING DOWN! GRAB THE FUEL CORE, JENNA, AND EVACUATE THE COMMAND CENTER! With this Rotating LED Warning Light with Adjustable Volume Buzzer Alarm, you can monitor and easily alert humanoids as to the status of a project, machine, or even if the bathroom is occupied!
Tri-Color USB Controlled Tower Light with Buzzer:With this Tri-Color USB Controlled Tower Light with Buzzer, you can easily monitor and alert humanoids as to the status of a project, machine, or even if the bathroom is occupied!
Unlike our other tower lights, no wiring or microcontroller programming is required. It’s completely plug-and-play for use with any computer that has a USB port, even a Raspberry Pi SBC – so we recommend it when you just want to get something running and don’t want to noodle around with 12V power plugs and transistors. It’s also got a great adjustable-angle body and three mounting holes on the base for easy installation.
Monochrome 1.3″ 128×64 SH1106G SPI OLED Monochrome Display: This is a screen for advanced hackers who like the look of the OLED screen we’ve put into the Adafruit MACROPAD RP2040.
This is just the raw display module – no PCB or supporting circuitry is included! You’ll need to add a 12V boost converter and other components to make it work. Check out the MACROPAD PCB files for a place to start.
LSM9DS0 9-DoF IMU Sensor Chip: We found a few left over LSM9DS0 from when we stopped using this chip (we moved to the LSM9DS1) and figured with the chip shortage going on, perhaps some folks could use these for prototyping or very small runs. Once we’re sold out we won’t stock it anymore, and the part is no longer available!
SMT 5-Way Directional Joystick / Navigation Switch – 10.5mm x 10mm x 7mm: This SMT 5-Directional Joystick is an intuitive way to add 5 buttons worth of interfacing with a single component. Inside are 5 switches: left, right, up, down, and ‘select’ (pressing down), all with a common ground pin.
TLC551 IC Timer – CMOS 555 with 1V to 15V power, up to 1.8MHz – TLC551CP: According to The Internet, 95% of electronic projects can be done with an op-amp or 555 timer chip. We’re not so sure about it, but the ‘triple nickel’ (as we like to call it after we’ve had a gin&tonic) does come in handy for many simple analog or digital circuits. The classic part number is often referred to as the “NE555”, and here we’ve got a modern spin on the classic.
FTDI FT232BL USB to UART Chip – 10 pack: It’s a blast-from-the-past with these FT232BL chips that we found while cleaning out a shelf at Adafruit. We haven’t used these for years, having moved to the FT232R and CP210x. Stiiiiiiiiiilllll……..with the silicon shortage, some folks may be building very old designs and need some of these ancient chips. No problem! We give you 10 pieces off of the reel, so you get one or two cut tape strips. They’re a little long-in-the-tooth, and we don’t recommend them for new designs, but they’ll work just as you expect.
Adjustable Power Supply w/ 2.1mm / 5.5mm DC – 3V to 24V at 2 Amp: Put your Snap! cassette on and sing along to “I got the power!” with this super useful power supply adapter where you can easily change the voltage with a snap of your fingers. On the front are a potentiometer knob and a LED 7-segment digital display. Twist the knob and look at the output voltage to range from 3V to 24V DC. It’s kinda like a benchtop supply you can take with you anywhere. Or if you don’t wanna take it anywhere, it has six mounting holes for a more permanent power supply spot.
ANO Directional Navigation and Scroll Wheel Rotary Encoder: This funky user interface element is reminiscent of the original clicking scroll wheel interface on the first iPods. It’s a fancy mechanical kit but has an intuitiveness that is hard to argue with – everyone knows how to use this kind of rotary encoder to scroll and select.
Adafruit ANO Rotary Navigation Encoder Breakout PCB: The ANO rotary encoder wheel is a funky user interface element is reminiscent of the original clicking scroll wheel interface on the first iPods. It’s a nifty kit, but the pin-out is a little odd, so we made a handy breakout board that converts the funky pin set into a straight forward, breadboard-friendly header strip.
This is just the PCB for the ANO encoder, the encoder is NOT included! Pick one up here.
