We’ve got the New nEw NEW for you right here:


Square Maker-Friendly Zipper Case – Purple

How many pockets does an OTG (On The Go) maker need to carry their boards, wires, and miscellanea when away from their desk? Or maybe you picked up the MEMENTO camera and you want to keep it nice and safe during transport… Instead of chucking it your into the abyss of your cargo pants, backpack, or purse, you can pick up a Square Zipper Case!

10 Pack Clearance – 26-pin GPIO IDC Ribbon Cable – 2×13 – Black with White Stripe

We originally stocked these cables for the Raspberry Pi Model A or B computer, but then the B+ and beyond came out and those all have 2×20 pins. So now we’ve got a ton of these cables just sittin’ around. And we wanted to clear out some space for more NEW goodies, so they’re going on the clearance rack!

Adafruit 2.9″ Red/Black/White eInk Display Breakout – THINK INK – UC8151D Chipset

Easy e-paper finally comes to microcontrollers, with this breakout that’s designed to make it a breeze to add a tri-color eInk display. Chances are you’ve seen one of those new-fangled ‘e-readers’ like the Kindle or Nook. They have gigantic electronic paper ‘static’ displays – that means the image stays on the display even when power is completely disconnected. The image is also high contrast and very daylight readable. It really does look just like printed paper!

Adafruit Chainable DS18B20 Extender Breakout – STEMMA JST PH 2mm

One of the perks of working at adafruit is you get to request hardware – and you’ll probably get fast turnaround! One of our developers requested “an easy way to chain DS18B20 sensors for testing with’s wippersnapper service” at 11:54am one Monday morning, and after a few back-and-forth’s we came up with the Adafruit Chainable DS18B20 Extender Breakout. Bit of a mouth-full, but we’re better engineers than marketers doncha-know.

Adafruit Pixel Trinkey – USB Key for NeoPixel / DotStar Driving

Blast-off to Pixel Planet with the Adafruit Pixel Trinkey, a co-pilot for those who like to shine bright. This little microcontroller board plugs into your computer’s USB port and can drive tons of NeoPixel (SK6812, WS2812, etc) or DotStar (e.g. AP102) LEDs without having to do any soldering or complex wiring. The SAMD21 chip on board has 32KB of SRAM, that means thousands of pixels! All from the convenience of your computer with support for Arduino, CircuitPython or Windows 11’s built-in Dynamic Light Control
