The Great Search: SMD USB Type A Host Connector #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey #USB @DigiKey @Adafruit
(Video) As we’re redoing one of our testers to work around a part shortage, we’re also trying to SMD-ify the whole thing since we use enough of these it’s worth it for us to make a short run of maybe 50 boards instead of hand soldering.
This tester does a USB enumeration check and so we want a USB Type A connector for the USB host. We’ve always used the classic THM version of the USB Type A, let’s see what’s available for SMT at Digi-Key!
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.
