RP-SMA to w.FL / MHF3 / IPEX3 Adapter: Most antennas have SMA or RP-SMA connectors on them, how are you going to connect them to your little RF module? This little cable will bridge the two!
This adapter cable is super handy for anyone doing RF work with modules that have w.FL connectors. It has a tiny MHF3/ IPEX3 / wFL / w.FL connector on the end – not a uFL connector – on one end, and an RP-SMA plug on the other.
Surface Mount Rotary Encoder – EC11J: For projects that need a rotary encoder but need to keep it single-sided or need to avoid interrupting traces or devices on the other side, here’s an all-SMT rotary encoder! It’s a high-quality 30-detents encoder from Alps, with detents and a nice feel. There’s a nice smooth bushing for placement in a box.
Pogo Pin Probe Clip – 6 Pins with 2.54mm / 0.1″ Pitch: The Pogo Pin Probe Clip with 6 pins in a 2.54 / 0.1″ pitch spacing is a great way to test and connect with pin-point accuracy without soldering! It’s sort of like an alligator clip with an array of built-in springy pogo pins – so you can connect to a PCB with classic 0.1″ spaced pad holes, without soldering or a special adapter cable.
Pogo Pin Probe Clip – 2×5 1.27mm Pitch SWD: The Pogo Pin Probe Clip with 2×5 0.05″ pitch SWD spacing is a great way to test and connect with pin-point accuracy without soldering! It’s sort of like an alligator clip with an array of built-in springy pogo pins – so you can connect to a PCB with classic ‘SWD’ pad holes, without soldering or a special adapter cable.

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.
