The Great Search – Skinny Micro SD card holder for Raspberry Pi Cowbells #TheGreatSearch @DigiKey @Adafruit
(Video) We have a tried-and-true microSD card holder that we have been using for all our designs, it’s a SMT push-pull design that has a lot of source variants, so it’s great for everyday usage. We even covered it on a previous Great Search.
But now we have to go back and source again – because for our new Raspberry Pico Cowbell add-on plans, we need a much skinner design that will fit between the SMT headers that will keep the Pico attached and we’re about 1mm too wide! No problem, we looked around our parts bin to see what some other products we have use one and liked the one on the Teensy boards, which are also pretty skinny – let’s source something equivalent and get it loaded it to our CAD software for usage.

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.
