Adafruit Circuit Playground Express (Circuit playground express)

Description:

Circuit Playground Express
 is the next step towards a perfect introduction to electronics and programming. We've taken the original Circuit Playground Classic and made it even better! Not only did we pack even more sensors in, we also made it even easier to program.

Start your journey with Microsoft MakeCode block-based or Javascript programming. Or, you can follow along with code.org CS Discoveries. Then, you can use the same board to try CircuitPython, with the Python interpreter running right on the Express. As you progress, you can advance to using Arduino IDE, which has full support of all the hardware down to the low level, so you can make powerful projects.

Because you can program the same board in 3 different ways - the Express has great value and re-usability. From beginners to experts, Circuit Playground Express has something for everyone.

Here's some of the great goodies baked in to each Circuit Playground Express:

  • 10 x mini NeoPixels, each one can display any color
  • 1 x Motion sensor (LIS3DH triple-axis accelerometer with tap detection, free-fall detection)
  • 1 x Temperature sensor (thermistor)
  • 1 x Light sensor (phototransistor). Can also act as a color sensor and pulse sensor.
  • 1 x Sound sensor (MEMS microphone)
  • 1 x Mini speaker with class D amplifier (7.5mm magnetic speaker/buzzer)
  • 2 x Push buttons, labeled A and B
  • 1 x Slide switch
  • Infrared receiver and transmitter - can receive and transmit any remote control codes, as well as send messages between Circuit Playground Expresses. Can also act as a proximity sensor.
  • 8 x alligator-clip friendly input/output pins
  • Includes I2C, UART, 8 pins that can do analog inputs, multiple PWM output
  • 7 pads can act as capacitive touch inputs and the 1 remaining is a true analog output
  • Green "ON" LED so you know its powered
  • Red "#13" LED for basic blinking
  • Reset button
  • ATSAMD21 ARM Cortex M0 Processor, running at 3.3V and 48MHz
  • 2 MB of SPI Flash storage, used primarily with CircuitPython to store code and libraries.
  • MicroUSB port for programming and debugging
  • USB port can act like serial port, keyboard, mouse, joystick or MIDI!

3D Christmas Tree DIY Kit Red/Green/Yellow LED Flash Circuit Kit (3D DIY Christmas tree)

Description:

Awesome and fun, for adults and kids, this is a seasonal must if you're into your electronics and gadgets. This circuit is composed of 16 pcs LED (light emitting diode). The 16pcs LED divided into four groups, and each group has different flashing frequencies, when four groups flash together, this item looks like a small Christmas tree. The circuit is powered by a 9V battery.

Specifications:

This circuit is simple and practical, low power consumption. It uses integrated circuits for driving: fewer parts, and the line is simple and easy to understand.

External Wiring Kit:

With USB plug for easy replacement of parts at any time and conducive circuit debugging. Also allows us to deepen our understanding of the principles of the circuit in the debugging process.

 This project is in the form of an oscillation circuit by the cycle generated by the following principles:

  • After the first charge, the capacitor C1 & C4 charging is complete.
  • Capacitors C2 & C3 will continue to charge.
  • When the transistor Q1 & Q4 is turned on at the same time, it discharges the capacitor C1 & C4.
  • Capacitors C2 & C3 is fully charged, the transistor Q1 & Q4 will be closed, while also charging the capacitor C1 & C4 again.
  • Transistors Q2 & Q3 is turned on while the capacitor C2 & C3 will be discharged.
  • By analogy, the flash of speed is the oscillation frequency, and the frequency is determined by the resistor R & capacitance C values.

Compatible with 6V~24V solar panels, supports 3x 18650 batteries recharged from solar panel, or TYPE-C power adapter. 5V/3A regulated output.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Li-ion and Li-po batteries are quite unstable. They may cause fire, personal injury, or property damage, if they're not properly recharged or used.
   
Do not reversely connect the polarities when recharging or discharging the battery.
Do not use inferior charger/charging panel to recharge the battery.

Do not mix use old batteries with new ones, avoid using batteries of different brands.
   
When buying a Lithium battery, you should always make sure the battery specification is compatible with the expansion board. Choose batteries from formal manufacturers and ensure the batteries will work stably and safely by aging test.

Lithium batteries have limited cycle life, they will also deteriorate as time goes by. Should be replaced with new ones when the batteries reaching their max cycle life, or working over two years, whichever comes first.

Batteries should be stored carefully and properly, keep it away from inflammables and explosives articles, away from children, avoid any safety accident caused by careless storage.
