BREAKING NEWS – PiTFT works with Raspberry Pi B+ @raspberry_pi #raspberrypi
PiTFT works with Raspberry Pi B+ . We have updated our kernel deb files & tutorial to be B+ compliant! The PiTFT resistive and capacitive work just fine on a B+ too! As the GPIO header moved down on the B+, the TFT now overhangs by 5mm. Adventurous makers can cut this unused section of PCB off or leave as is!
We will be working to make a PiTFT HAT but there’s no ETA!
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
