Title: Tinkerkit info?
Post by: JimboZA on Dec 31, 2012, 11:22 am
Hi...

I'm pretty sure I once found a page listing and explaining the Tinkerkit components. I thought it was here on arduino.cc but may be wrong. But whatever, I can't find it now  :~

Anyone know of a good page to read up on Tinkerkit components please?

TIA,

Jim

Well you can find it in the Arduino store: http://store.arduino.cc/ww/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=16 (http://store.arduino.cc/ww/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=16).  Note, this page is in Italian, and I'm not sure where an english version is.

There is also the basic tinkerkit site: http://www.tinkerkit.com (http://www.tinkerkit.com).

The connector used on TinkerKits and the Arduino Esplora is a 3 pin Molex connector.  These may be familiar from some 3 pin PC fans which used them for power, gound, and PWM speed control.

The connectors are also available from many electronics suppliers.  Sparkfun sells them for $0.45 each (pins sold separately).  Google 3 pin female molex will also show you other sources.
