Hot on the heels of the Circuit Playground v1.1 update, comes one more decimal point – and with it, some welcome changes! Specifically, the following:
• Bug fix for RC Filter Calc’s High Pass mode displaying incorrect unit label
The Delay value’s label was displaying “sec” instead of “Hz” – but no longer.
• Bug fix for zero value input errors on 555 Calc & RC Filter Calc, plus relevant alert views
If a zero value is entered, a pop-up now kindly asks you for a non-zero value.
• Added alert view for component count fields in Multi Resistor & Capacitor Calcs
The Multi component calculators accept a component count of 2 to 9, and now express their needs appropriately.
Do be sure to grab the update from the App Store. And for those who already did – thanky.
There is much more exciting newness currently in the works for Circuit Playground – this thing just keeps on growing!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
