Adafruit LED Arcade Button 1×4 – STEMMA QT I2C Breakout – STEMMA QT / Qwiic
The only thing better than a glowy arcade button is, perhaps, FOUR glowing arcade buttons – and that’s what the Adafruit LED Arcade Button 1×4 QT I2C Breakout will let you do! This long 3″ x 0.8″ PCB has 8 x JST XH sockets that will fit our arcade button quick connects. Each XH pair lets you connect one arcade button that has a built in LED illuminator, and makes it easy to use with a breadboard/perfboard or with a STEMMA QT (Qwiic) connector for instant I2C connectivity on any platform.
As of noon ET Tuesday December 14th, 2021, we include a free Pink Adafruit Feather RP2040 for orders $99 or more. While supplies last!
Vibrant-colored PCBs are of interest in the maker community. For years, fab houses such as OSH Park have offered rich purple PCBs, along with Cytron, offering several RP2040 boards with its own take on purple PCBs.
