For the Raspberry Pi (RPi) low-cost educational computer, the Raspy Juice Expansion Board is a compact piggyback PCB board that power supply the required and regulated +5V to the RPi from a wide range of voltage sources, provides an RS232-level console breakout port and a real-time clock. The secondary feature of Raspy Juice is its expansion ATmega168A microcontroller that has interfaces of an RS485 port, an additional RS232 port, 4x RC servo ports, and an expansion pins header for the MCU. This microcontroller and its interfaces are for simple robotics and other interfacing experiments.

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.
