Push button circuit setup

For this exercise, we will need:

  • 4-pin push button: A push button is an electronic component that is attached to two points in a circuit. It is also called a tact switch. When it is pressed, it joins these two points and the circuit is completed. The circuit is disconnected when the button is not pressed.
  • Male-to-male jumper wires: We need jumper wires to connect BeagleBone and components through a breadboard.
  • Half-size breadboard: A breadboard is needed to create a solderless circuit.
