The PA technology team have demonstrated how to take an existing off-the-shelf technology and radically reduce the cost of product design. PA’s Alastair Smith explains how we took a Raspberry Pi and evaluated the platform by implementing a mobile phone basestation that could run our own private mobile phone network.
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.
