About:

In this lesson you’ll build a PCB badge that uses a small battery to illuminate five LEDs in parallel. Since this might be your first crack at designing your own printed circuit board (also known as a PCB), you won’t have to design everything from scratch. You’ll be introduced to a preselected set of components as well as a schematic that shows the electrical connections between them. You’ll learn about each of these components, how to read a schematic, and then use your newly developed skills to layout your PCB — that is, place the components wherever you like.


NOTE: This product comes in two sizes, 10-Packs and 20-Packs. Please see size options towards the top of the page. If you are looking for larger quantities, please contact sales@stemfinity.com for a custom quote.

 

Patchr Kits are a little bit different than your typical STEM kit

When you order a Patchr Kit, you'll get instant access to step-by-step online instructions within the Patchr Editor.

You'll be introduced to just enough electronic fundamentals to understand how this kit's circuit works and how each of the components in the kit work together to make it happen.

The Patchr Editor is smart too. Built into each lesson are design rules that automatically verify the layout and routing of your circuit to ensure your design's success.
