USB Type C Plug to Plug Adapter

Turn any USB Type C device into a pluggable USB key with this ‘plug to plug’ adapter. Works with any computer/laptop with a USB type C port.

If you want a small, cable-less way to connect our modern USB C devices, this little dongle will do the job nicely. It’s quite simple – you’ve got your USB C plug on one side, another C plug on the other. Since C is reversible, you can always plug in your board upright.

SOIC 8-Pin Test Clip to DIP Adapter

This SOIC Test Clip is a great way to test and connect to Flash memory, EEPROMs or other 8-SOIC chips, with pinpoint accuracy and NO soldering! It’s sort of like an alligator clip but with 8 metal teeth that grip nicely onto normal or wide SOICs. So handy for when you need to probe an I2C, SPI or QSPI connection – or burn firmware to a chip without desoldering.

The clip is strong enough to grip onto an 8-pin SOIC but has a soft grip with two rows of gold-plated contacts so it won’t mar or damage circuits. The continuity goes through the clip and out the ~30cm long 28AWG cable with an adapter. The 0.1″ header adapter can be plugged into any breadboard.

Etched Glow-Through Keycap with Glitch Logo – MX Compatible Switches

Show off your social-coding flair with a super-classy, custom-made and officially licensed Glitch Logo Etched Keycap.

It’s made with a translucent/opaque plastic that is etched to create an elegant glow-through effect. Perfect to show your coder cred on your next mechanical keyboard project or to automatically launch your online coding project on glitch.com!

Snaps onto any Cherry MX or compatible switch. It’s R4 profile so will work nicely as a stand-alone key or at the top row of your keyboards.

Note: This product is a single keycap, and key switches are not included!

MCP4725 Breakout Board – 12-Bit DAC with I2C Interface – STEMMA QT / qwiic

Your microcontroller probably has an ADC (analog -> digital converter) but does it have a DAC (digital -> analog converter)??? Now it can! This breakout board features the easy-to-use MCP4725 12-bit DAC. Control it via I2C and send it the value you want it to output, and the VOUT pin will have it. Great for audio / analog projects, such as when you can’t use PWM but need a sine wave or adjustable bias point.

We break out the ADDR/A0 pin so you can connect two of these DACs on one I2C bus, just tie that pin of one high (or close the jumper on the back) to keep it from conflicting. Also included is a 6-pin header, for use in a breadboard. Works with both 3.3V or 5V logic.

Some nice extras with this chip: for chips that have 3.4Mbps Fast Mode I2C (Arduino’s don’t) you can update the Vout at ~200 KHz. There’s an EEPROM so if you write the output voltage, you can ‘store it’ so if the device is power cycled it will restore that voltage. The output voltage is rail-to-rail and proportional to the power pin so if you run it from 3.3V, the output range is 0-3.3V. If you run it from 5V the output range is 0-5V.

Adafruit ESP32-S2 TFT Feather – 4MB Flash, 2MB PSRAM, STEMMA QT

We’ve got a new machine here at Adafruit, it can uncover your deepest desires. Don’t believe me? I’ll turn it on right now to prove it to you! What, you want unlimited mozzarella sticks? OK well, that’s not something we can provide. But we can provide your second-deepest desire: an ESP32-S2 Feather board with a built in IPS TFT color display. It’s got all the gooeyness of a mozzarella stick features of a Feather main board, the comforting warmth of an ESP32-S2 WiFi microcontroller, and the crispness of a 240×135 pixel color TFT display. All that and it will even plug in nicely into a breadboard, terminal block wing, or Feather Doubler or even just stack on top of another wing.

This feather comes with native USB and 4 MB flash + 2 MB of PSRAM, so it is perfect for use with CircuitPython or Arduino with low-cost WiFi. Native USB means it can act like a keyboard or a disk drive. WiFi means its awesome for IoT projects. And Feather means it works with the large community of Feather Wings for expandability.

Adafruit QT Py ESP32-S2 WiFi Dev Board with uFL Antenna Port – STEMMA QT

What has your favorite Espressif WiFi microcontroller, comes with our favorite connector – the STEMMA QT, a chainable I2C port, and has lots of Flash and RAM memory for your next IoT project? What will make your next IoT project flyyyyy? What a cutie pie! Or is it… a QT Py? This diminutive dev board comes with one of our new favorite lil chips, the ESP32-S2, and a uFL antenna port so you can connect any WiFi antenna for great range!

Note: This board does not come with an onboard antenna, you need a uFL connector antenna such as the 2.4GHz Mini Flexible WiFi Antenna or a uFL to RP-SMA adapter The antenna is not included in purchase. Almost all WiFi antennas are RP-SMA so watch out that you don’t use a uFL to SMA adapter.
