Adafruit TRRS Trinkey – USB Key for Assistive Technology

It’s half USB Key, half TRRS breakout… it’s the Adafruit TRRS Trinkey specifically designed for Assistive Technology hackers and creators as a simple and low cost, but also flexible and extendable AT device.

Many AT interface devices use 3.5mm audio jacks to create switches or variable inputs – often mono TS or stereo TRS plugs. On the TRRS Trinkey, we connect all 6 pins of a ‘switched’ TRRS jack – tip, ring 1, ring 2, sleeve and the tip switch plus ring 1 switch – to 6 GPIO pins on the microcontroller. That means we can not only detect when plugs are inserted but can change which pins are input, ground or even 3V power. With the use of a stereo/mic splitter, we can have up to 3 simple switches, or two analog potentiometers, or one of each! We particularly like this jack because it has two through-hole contacts near the opening for a good mechanical connection.

Adafruit Proto Tripler PiCowbell for Pico and PicoW

The Adafruit Proto Tripler PiCowBell is intended to be treated like a mini solder-less proto plate to simplify programming and sensor or display connectivity for your Raspberry Pi Pico board. Reset button? Yes! STEMMA QT / Qwiic connector for fast I2C? Indeed. Battery with recharging and on/off switch? Affirmative. Built in NeoPixel? Bien sur! EYE SPI connector? Truly! All plug-and-play, so no soldering necessary when used with a Pico H or Pico WH? Here you go!

2.54mm / 0.1″ Pitch Press-Fit Male Pin Header

If your soldering isn’t quite up to scratch, or you yet don’t own a soldering iron, then these nifty 0.1″/2.54mm standard pitch press-fit headers might be just what you need.

Absolutely no soldering required! All that’s needed is a few determined squeezes with some pliers, and whammo! Header is securely attached to the board with a press-fit connection that will get you started with your wiring. Once you’re done you can either pull the pins out one-by-one or solder them in place permanently

On-Off Key Lock Switch – 12mm Diameter

MAJOR KEY ALERT 🔑🔑🔑 we now stock ‘Key Lock Switches’! These are mechanical switches that don’t use a button or a lever or a magnet to open and close the contacts. Instead, a literal key is used. This is a low cost but effective key lock switch that’s nice and compact: you only need to drill a 12mm / 0.5″ diameter hole in your mounting plate.

Mini Leaded 60/40 Solder Spool – 0.3mm Diameter – 50 grams

High-quality rosin core welding wire is easy to solder and has a smooth flow, fast soldering speed, and strong soldering point. It has great soldering ability and is especially suitable for circuit board maintenance, DIY, home improvement, cable/TV/radio/stereo/toys, and other electronic device maintenance.

If you want to make a kit, you’ll need some solder. This 0.1 lb (about 50 grams) spool is a good amount, not too much (like 1 lb spools) and not too little (like those little ‘pocket clip’ vials).
