!!Where Can I Get Electronic Parts in New York City?

The bad news is that this city has very few storefront outlets for electronics. If you need a last minute component, you've got three options, basically: [[http://www.radioshack.com/| Radio Shack]] (plenty of them all over town); The [[http://www.bookstores.nyu.edu/computer.store/|NYU Computer Store]] (around the corner on Mercer and Greene, soon moving across the street on Broadway); and [[https://plus.google.com/117694635636390239509/about?gl=us&hl=en| 269 Electronics]].  Save yourself time and call any of these and ask if they have what you need before you go.

You'll end up buying most of your electronic components online, so plan shipping time into your project planning. Here are some of our regular sources:

'''[[http://www.adafruit.com |Adafruit]]''' is based in NYC, delivers fast, and has many components and modules that work well for this class.  A ground-based shipment from Adafruit will often arrive before a two-day shipment from other retailers.  Their customer service on shipments is excellent, and their [[http://learn.adafruit.com/|tutorials]] are quite good too.

[[https://solarbotics.com/| Solarbotics]] is good for motors and motor support components, but carries a range of other components as well.

There are many large distributors of bulk components like resistors, capacitors, transistors. They're not aimed at the hobbyist market, and their sites can seem a bit daunting at first, but they're very useful as you get to know how to shop. We use [[http://www.digikey.com/|Digikey]], [[http://www.mouser.com/| Mouser]], [[http://www.jameco.com/|Jameco]], and [[http://www.newark.com/|Newark]] frequently.

Note that there are some parts available in the physical computing lab cabinet. This cabinet is not meant as a constant supply for physical computing students. It is a place to get things the first time, so you know what they look like before you have to order them online. If you need a last-minute LED or regulator and there's one available, it's okay to take it, but please don't hoard parts from this cabinet, and please don't count on it as your main source for parts.

You'll need some electronics components to complete the work in this course. If you've done any electronics or microcontroller project development, you may have many of the parts already. We'll be working with the Arduino microcontroller platform, and you should be able to do the lab exercises for the course on most any Arduino-compatible microcontroller. For best results on the labs, use an Arduino [[http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardUno| Uno]], [[http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardLeonardo| Leonardo]], or [[http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardMicro |Micro]], as that's what your instructors will be using to demonstrate with.

For the in-class lab exercises, when there's a specialty module needed, like a radio or a specific microcontroller, we'll have stock on hand to lend for the class period, so you can try things out before you buy them for your own projects.

There are some electronics components available in the physical computing lab cabinet. Please don't hoard parts, so that we always have some available for everyone.  We try to keep more expensive modules, like microcontroller boards and radios, available for loan as well, though there is no guarantee that these will be available right when you need them

'''Note: We won't be using the experimenter's guide in the kit.''' The standard circuits you'll learn in this class are different than those in the ARDX experimenter's guide.  While the guide is useful, there are some circuits in it that can be built easier. We've opted for the simple versions, which you'll see in the lab tutorials on this site.

Below is a list of commonly used parts, many of which are in the kits mentioned above. If you get the kit, you'll alread have these, but if you're looking in the future, here are some alternative sources.


'''Arduino Microcontroller module'''\\
You can buy this at [[http://www.sparkfun.com|Sparkfun.com]] or the NYU Computer store.  Ask for it at the counter.

'''Prototyping board''':\\
This is what you assemble your circuits on. There are two boards that are popular in the class, one from Jameco and one from Radio Shack. Personally, I prefer the Jameco version, because I like having two rows of bus holes. The NYU computer store sells the Jameco boards as well. I recommend these boards over the Radio Shack boards, but either will do.
*Radio Shack 6&quot; board, part no. 276-174 (1 bus row per side)
*Jameco 6&quot; board, part no. 20722 (2 bus rows per side)

'''Project Box''' (to fit prototyping board)\\
This is a box to protect your project. It fits your prototyping board, and you knock holes in it for your cables to come out of. There are many options, best to pick one that your breadboard fits inside of comfortably, with room for electronic components to stick out. Tupperware with holes in it works quite well (called a &quot;milmoe box&quot; at ITP, in honor or Andrew Milmoe, who perfected the technique following a horrible sandwich disaster).
*Radio Shack RSU11907656
*Multiple Jameco options such as Jameco 18905
* Staples pencil boxes

'''DC power supply''' (5-9V DC and 700-1500mA)\\
*Radio Shack 273-1758 (6V 800mA)
*Radio Shack 273-1667 (3-12V, 800mA)
*Multiple Jameco options such as:
**Jameco 170245 (12V, 1000mA) Available at the NYU computer store.

'''5V DC Voltage Regulator (7805 regulator)'''\\
You can get this at Radio Shack, or Jameco (51262). There are also some available for use in the lab.

'''Power supply connector'''\\
This is a connector to connect your power supply to your breadboard. You should get the one that mates with whatever power supply you buy. You won't need it for the Arduino alone.
*Radio Shack Cat. no. 910-0908 mates with 2.1mm x 5.5mm female connectors
*Jameco 159610 mates with 2.1mm x 5.5mm female connectors. Available at the NYU Computer store

'''Servomotor'''\\
The Hobbico cs-61 servomotor is available at the NYU computer store.

'''Cable Ties''' available in the lab

'''1K Ohm Resistors, 1/4 watt''' available in the lab\\
'''10K Ohm Resistors, 1/4 watt''' available in the lab\\
'''220 Ohm Resistors, 1/4 watt''' available in the lab\\
'''22K Ohm resistors, 1/4 watt''' available in the lab\\
'''LED's''' available in the lab\\
'''Switch''' find a store-bought one, or better yet, make your own\\
'''Variable resistor''' find a store-bought one. The NYU computer store carries Flex sensors, which are good fun, and other sensors as well.

'''USB cable''': available at the NYU Computer store. You'll need one of these for both programming and later, for communication.

'''Tools''':\\
*miniature Philips/flathead screwdriver, Jameco 127271
*Diagonal Wire Cutter, Jameco 161411
*Wire stripper, 22-30 AWG, Jameco 159290
*Flat needlenose pliers, Jameco 35473
*Drillbits. These sizes are the ones you'll need most often for wood, plastic, and thin metal. Most hardware stores will carry them for less than a dollar each.

'''Parts needed for Intro Physical Computing'''\\

Note that there are some parts available in the physical computing lab cabinet. This cabinet is not meant as a constant supply for physical computing students. It is a place to get things the first time, so you know what they look like before you have to order them online. If you need a last-minute LED or regulator and there's one available, it's okay to take it, but please don't hoard parts from this cabinet, and please don't count on it as your main source for parts.

Personally, I prefer the Jameco version, because I like having two rows of bus holes. The NYU computer store sells the Jameco boards as well. I recommend these boards over the Radio Shack boards, but either will do.
*Radio Shack 6&quot; board, part no. 276-174 (1 bus row per side)
*Jameco 6&quot; board, part no. 20722 (2 bus rows per side)

'''Project Box''' (to fit prototyping board)\\
This is a box to protect your project. It fits your prototyping board, and you knock holes in it for your cables to come out of. There are many options, best to pick one that your breadboard fits inside of comfortably, with room for electronic components to stick out. Tupperware with holes in it works quite well (called a &quot;milmoe box&quot; at ITP, in honor or Andrew Milmoe, who perfected the technique following a horrible sandwich disaster).
*Radio Shack RSU11907656
*Multiple Jameco options such as Jameco 18905

'''DC power supply''' (5-9V DC and 700-1500mA)\\
*Radio Shack 273-1758 (6V 800mA)
*Radio Shack 273-1667 (3-12V, 800mA)
*Multiple Jameco options such as:
**Jameco 170245 (12V, 1000mA) Available at the NYU computer store.

'''5V DC Voltage Regulator (7805 regulator)'''\\
You can get this at Radio Shack, or Jameco (51262). There are also some available for use in the lab.


'''Clock Crystal'''\\
This provides the timing for your PIC.  Available at the bookstore too.  Use a 4MHz model.
*Jameco: 137832
*not available at Radio Shack

'''Standoffs'''\\
There are some available for use in the lab. Jameco carries these too.

'''Power supply connector'''\\
This is a connector to connect your power supply to your board. You should get the one that mates with whatever power supply you buy.
*Radio Shack Cat. no. 910-0908 mates with 2.1mm x 5.5mm female connectors
*Jameco 159610 mates with 2.1mm x 5.5mm female connectors.
