The Propeller Activity Board gives you direct access to the most popular Propeller peripherals, including:

  • XBee socket — control or receive data from your invention wirelessly
  • microSD card holder — log sensor data or add WAV files
  • Mini audio/stereo jack — listen to those WAV files or synthesized speech
  • 3-pin headers — quickly connect to servos, serial LCDs, etc.
  • Breadboard — build and rebuild circuits without soldering (or desoldering!)
  • A/D and D/A converters — read or set the voltage your project needs
  • USB or power supply — the choice is yours

Get started today by exploring the Propeller C Tutorials and see just how easy it is to digitize your creativity.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
