Stephen’s Experimenter Board for @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Check out this neat R-Pi breakout, called Step_X. Steve writes:
The Step_X (Stephen’s Experimenter) board. complete (at the moment) with some annotation to indicate major areas. The concept is to have one place to gather some simple I/O tools addressed by the Raaspberry Pi GPIO, which is further protected and buffered by zener diodes and a series of OCL darlington drivers to ‘push’ more from the GPIO. No ADC on board but easily added. You can make one as well.
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.
