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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
