The Great Search: Antistatic foam blocks #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey #Adafruit @DigiKey @Adafruit
“Do you have a vendor you could recommend for the antistatic foam blocks you use for products with pre-soldered male pin headers? We’re on the hunt for one and would be happy to take any advice you all have! – Thanks!”
We got an email request this week from another maker in the community, who is making and selling hardware with pre-soldered pin headers. They were wondering where we get our antistatic foam for our pre-soldered boards. Great question for a Great Search! We’ll show you the different kinds of foam and the sizes we recommend.
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.
