The Great Search: a small heatsink for a camera module #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey @DigiKey @Adafruit
Our OV5640 camera is working great, but we notice it does heat up quite a bit. We want to add a little heatsink option to our breakout so that the camera can be cooled off a little while it’s running. Digi-Key stocks hundreds of thousands of different heat sinks, let’s see what we can find that is small enough to fit. (Video)
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.
