This protoboard is double sided, meaning that you can easily put components on both sides. It is perfect for all your DIY projects, as with its 0.1" (2.54mm) pitch it fits nearly all the through hole components.
The very popular 595 shift register chip of the 74 series is used a lot by hobbyis because of its wide availability, good speed and simplicity. Just plug it on an arduino like shown in the tutorials and youi have 8 more outputs, put two and you have 16 more outputs ! (up to a lot of them actually, with only three pins !)
Standard size breadboard that is perfect for prototypes. It does even have power rails on the sides to allow for more than one power level. The one you will get is white and not transparent as in the picture.
This is a power module for the standard bread boards (Small and Medium sized). It's concave design so will not wast your proto zone. It also supports both 5v and 3.3v (both can be enabled on each power rail).
We think it is a must to have on your workbench, really.
The 555 timer IC is an integrated circuit (chip) used in a variety of timer, pulse generation, and oscillator applications. The 555 can be used to provide time delays, as an oscillator, and as a flip-flop element. Derivatives provide up to four timing circuits in one package.
CD4021 is a cascadable 8bit parallel to serial shift register (basically the inverse of the 74hc595).
Sometimes you'll end up needing more digital input than the pins on your microcontroller board can readily handle. Using a parallel to serial shift register allows you collect information from 8 or more switches while only using 3 of the pins on your...
