AtomSoftTech Part Collection

Okay so i decided to go ahead and show my crazy but useful and actually unorganized organization skills 🙂 Here is how everything looks untouched. (when i say everything, i mean the parts i sell or use to make PCBs to sell, no where near EVERYTHING)

workarea

Lets get into this now. All blue/clear bins except 3 are 6 3/8″ x 5″ x 2 3/4″. Small when you think about it but what they hold will amaze you.  Larger Blue/Clear bins are about the same Height/Width but double the length.

Inside the bins are a wealth of parts. Ill show a image and name it. I wont name each part because this isn’t inventory just a glimpse of my world.

IC’s 2 – Most of the ICs i do NOT use. Fun stuff none-the-less. 1

Wire Connectors – Everything i use for creating custom wiring to test/build/program

2

Inductors – Just that 🙂

3

Capacitors 2 = Barely used and mostly Aluminum SMT caps.

4

Switches and Buttons – SO MANY DIFFERENT TYPES FROM SMT TO PTH5

IC’s – Used Regularly  (Charge IC, USB2UART IC etc)

6

Capacitors – All regularly used caps 100nf , 1uf, 10nf, 20pf etc

7

MCUs – so many, ARM, AVR, CPLD, FPGA, PIC, SOC etc…

8

LEDs – Normal indication to IR transmitters and receivers.

9

10

Diodes – just about every kind11

Oscillators and Resonators –  from 32khz to 48MHz

12

OSH PCBs – Just about all the stuff i sell… minus some new pcbs 🙂

PCBs are all unsoldered. Using this system allows me to cancel out a PCB and not have wasted parts. Saves me tons of money and having to order parts a lot.

13

Resistors – just about any value here… (Not really but close enough lol)

14

Wifi and RF – NRF24L01 to ESP8266

15

Connectors – From Battery (lipo/coin) to USB & Probe connectors (A LOT)

16

Headers – Female and Male Single In Line style (more coming this week)

17

Headers – Right Angle Single in Line, Double row male/female , small pitch etc…

19

Unused header bits.. all types!

18

As you can see i have a ton of parts to sift through and surprisingly this is a organized system and i can find any part in a matter of seconds.

I would love to hear your thoughts on how i have this set up and any questions you may have :
I wish i had enough free time to empty bins and draws to show all the sweet stuff but the day has only 24 hours 🙂 Thanks!

    Wow, this is a very nice collection of goodies!

      Thanks! Perhaps one day ill be able to name everything. Just so many. Hundreds and hundreds. Plus the hidden gems. Like the rf bad. Those wifi chips are all esp8266 but 1 of every module. So esp01 to esp12… for future testing and play.

        If you do you’ll be way ahead of me! I have my resistors sorted by value and caps by type then my chips sorted into 48 different bins by type but otherwise my storage is similar except type of bin. I don’t nearly have the inductors you do… A lot of small resistor-like packaged ones but not the SMD iron core; must be for all your power supplies?
