The Great Search: Floppy Disk Drive Power Connectors! #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey #Adafruit @adafruit @DigiKey
(Video) OK, so one challenge we’ve disk-covered (ha) doing floppy interfacing is that you need to really power them right. The power connector is a keyed 2.5mm pitch right angle PCB mount part (a Berg Connector). Let’s find a connector on Digi-Key we can use in our design!
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.
