SIGN UP – Adafruit Proto Cape Kit for Beagle Bone. We have these but we’re waiting for the Beagle Bones to come in (about next week or so) before we release these. What is the Adafruit Proto Cape Kit for Beagle Bone? Add some circuitry to your Beagle Bone with our lovely Proto Cape. If you have a ‘Bone you need one of these! This PCB fits neatly on top of a BeagleBone, without getting in the way of the Ethernet jack, and provides a breakout to both 46 pin headers – with individual numbering to keep them straight. We also threw down some strips to access the 5V and 3V power supplies as well as two SMT breakouts, one for SOIC-8’s and one for SOT-23’s.
Kit comes with a double-sided FR4 PCB and 3 sticks of header. You’ll need to place the header into the BeagleBone and then solder the Proto Cape PCB in place, but its very easy and should take only 10 minutes max even for beginners. Beagle Bone is not included! We do have ‘Bones in the shop available for purchase separately.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
