Beginner Parts Kit Identification Guide

March 22, 2019

The essential parts for beginning (or even experienced) hobbyists that gives you all of the basic through-hole components you will need to get started playing with embedded projects. We'll identify a few parts in the kit and provide a few basic circuits to get started!

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

1 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

  • Whats the max voltage on this?

  • This price is INSANE... $0.77 each?!?!? Here they are for NINE CENTS each!! And that's in singles -- buy 250 of them for $21 whereas here 100 is $62!!! http://canada.newark.com/multicomp/2n3906/bipolar-transistor-pnp-40v-to/dp/08N8112

  • The datasheet link is broken for me.
    Here's a link to the sheet "in the wild":
