This foxy badge is a great way to show your pride! Artwork designed by Lee Wilkins who is @Leeborg_ on twitter.
It's a surface mount solder-it-yourself badge that blinks LEDs using a 555 timer and a decade counter circuit.
We wanted to support the LGBTQ maker electronics community and Pride month, and have a board that was customizable so each person could feel represented through their badge. The fantastic artwork was designed by Lee Wilkins. We also want to make it easy for more people to learn how to surface mount solder, so this badge features nicely-spaced large 1206 parts that are easier for beginners to work with.
This pride badge is not only super cute it's also super customizable! We provide LEDs in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, cyan, and white. The black version of the badge adds black and brown/copper colors (still waiting for that black LED!), making sure you can express yourself and represent your flag on your badge! If you get the fully assembled version we can't customize your LEDs but you will get the full rainbow! The moon in the center is silkscreen with ample space you can write your name and pronouns (or anything you want!) on. There are two CR2016 batteries included to juice this badge up to 6V and ensure the LEDs will sparkle all day and night. It also has a 555 timer that acts as a clock to feed the decade counter to give the LEDs a twinkling effect.
