Arnan Sipitakiat and Paulo Blikstein. The PiTopping and a new model for educational robotics –
Pi-Topping robotics framework for the Raspberry Pi
• PCB – Contains the pi-topping PCB source files. They are created using KiCAD, a free PCB design tool.
• firmware – The PIC firmware to drive the pi-topping board.
• pirunner – Software to allow a user to write their Python script on a regular computer then download and remotely run the script.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
